As you have pointed out he DID apologize. Obviously he regretted the turn of events. You obviously took the high road and welcomed him back. This is one of many reasons TSi+WRX why I respect
you so much, and to abandon us here who need
your expertise, well, it's a big
source of disappointment. Imagine meeting someone and finding a lot of reasons to respect them, but then suddenly they walk out the front door (for whatever reason). I think you could see where that would cause such great disappointment
by that person doing that and not taking the high road, as you've done before. So basically it's like you got into an argument with someone and so when you got home you kicked the cat. A lot of us here feel like we're that cat
You have taught us all so much in the past, and through no bad action on any of our
part, you are taking the worst possible action out on the rest of us by abandoning
us. I know you didn't see it like this before, but this is how it basically is.
Why not compromise
and use the features built-in to vB forum software intended for just this very occasion? Simply click on "User CP
" and navigate towards the bottom of the left hand side menu where it says "Buddy/Ignore List
". Then simply enter in the name of the party that you don't wish to see. Click "Save List
" and guess what? You've just performed an action that will have the same effect
as leaving, only you don't have to physically leave so it won't adversely effect those of us here who truly NEED you. An admin is not the only one who can effectively ban a member, you can privately ban anyone in any vB forum yourself by performing the actions I've outlined above. When you do that, you will never see those people again on these forums, just as if they were banned. Yet you can still be here for those of us who really, really, really need your expertise
in all matters of countermeasure.
and for my absence, Stealth Enthusiast, I will apologize, for my ongoing conversation with you has been a true delight, in both my serving as a foil to your ideas, as well as your counterpoints to my own
I have always been a person who values actions
more than anything else. Our conversations and debates here have been truly enlightening TSi+WRX. You have a way to explain things so that the common man can understand and grasp them. When people read your posts they learn and grow, whether they realize it or not. I NEED you here, I really, really need you here to teach me this vast and multi-faceted topic of countermeasures. Leaving only hurts those of us who need your help the most! We are all, after all, only human. If you could at least try to compromise by putting those who may upset you on 'Ignore' then you would still be able to help those of us who value and treasure
your expertise. That is an action
that I would like to see.
