At the risk of thinking myself more important than I actually am, I just wanted to say good bye to everyone in the forum and I will miss a couple of you.

Good night, and good luck.

Did that thread on AA push you over the edge?

I know there are reasons one might want to take a bow, and since I don't know I can't say 'hey, don't go.' You will be missed, and I'd hope you might reconsider, or at least pop back in on occasion. In any event, know that I wish you well.

With highest regard,
Huntsman

I suppose if I am self-important enough to wave goodbye publicly, I can at least hint at why I am leaving.

Frankly I'm tired of the attitudes that are so prevalent on this forum. There is a growing level of ugliness that puzzles me but I'm not interested enough to figure out why or how it's manifesting itself. I'm a happy guy for the most part and I certainly don't need it in my life.

I guess that said everything and nothing. At any rate, this is likely my last post at SF as I have asked j to cancel my account. I said before that there were a few of you I was going to miss, well, to be truthful, there are quite a few. Take care guys...

Take care gorgekko.

Now if I could only get him to agree to not bid on any 48L suits on e-bay.

You'll be back...


There is no patch, no gum, no 12 step program. Styleforum is the only thing that will scratch your itch.

Until then, may the seas be calm and the women rough!

Gorgekko, fare thee well. I have always admired and respected you as a member of this forum, and your departure is a loss. Take care.

As for the larger issue raised, I agree to a point. Duirng my time here, there have always been the oddballs, but it does seem that since we've been back that the noise level has gone up. Perhaps it was all that energy that got pent up during the hiatus.

One can try to ignore a thread or poster, but often times, that person seemingly sets a tone. There is a strong wind of negativity around here which comes, in my opinion, from some obvious suspects, but also in responses from less obvious members.

I'm not about to leave, but I do find myself shaking my head about a post or reply more frequently. My two cents.

*nodding*

know what you mean dude. i think negativity may be the wrong word, but there is a small element (my personal suspicion is that its one person talking to himself a real lot) that is getting on my nerves too. Was funny for a very very very very short while. Really isnt anymore.

still, i love it here, im not about to bail over it.

Best wishes GG, hope you wander back in later.

Perhaps I am blissfully ignoring the threads in question -
