Teh was being an ass. Carlos is being dramatic. But they both left in a pretentious manner. Teh could have privately explained why he left to winston and others. Carlos could leave the forum and only communicated with Ferret and other people. That's what normal people do.
Yea, but most people when they make leave treads at least don't dramatise it. They just say: "I am leaving because I am bored of this forum". They don't say: "On the morning of Thursday 27th I will make my final post in this forum. It will remain final until reasonable circumstances bring me back. Which I doubt. Heavily."
They don't dramatize it. If they make a thread they make it and make their point and leave.
then people will say "He's an asshole for not telling us why..." so people prefer to leave this way
Well, this part always perplexed me. Usually, if someone leaves a forum, they don't also leave all the people they talk to. I may stop posting on the forum I'll still be in contact with winston, chaos, LinkX, and a few others. And if I plan not to talk to them, either, I can tell them personally, and I think they deserve a personal inform, not just a forum announcement which they may take some time to read.
No, Carlos. You are contradicting yourself. If you left because people annoyed you, it would be the assumption that nobody cared if you left and everyone wanted you to leave, so there wouldn't be any confusion. In fact, you wouldn't care for those people.
But you expect people to care. You are probably posting this to see how many people care, in fact. You are not leaving because everyone hates you, just because not everyone on this forum thinks you are great and cool, some think you are just obnoxious.
And what Noah wrote is totally irrelevant, he's just an idiot. Jarhead said a similar thing to me, and Jarhead is a long-time member of this forum, you don't see me taking that seriously, do you?
If you were truly leaving there wouldn't be a thread. When people leave for reasons that you claim they leave quietly, they just disappear. You are making a scene. "Here I am great Carloseus leaving this forum!" You always want attention.
You want to leave, leave. Don't make a scene and blame other people for it.
