Signing off......


.... Just wanted to say how much I've appreciated getting to know everyone on this site, even those whom I've not seen eye-to-eye with on every issue. This has been my political home for 12 years, but I guess everything changes eventually.
To all of my many friends and allies, PM me. I'd love to hear from you.

Peace, love and justice.

Sincerely,
MarMar

1. No!

You are one of the posters who makes DU, well, DU.

I remember for the longest time that I thought of you and xchrom ( ) as the morning progressive crew.

What the hell is happening?! GAH!

3. I'm spending less time here, and more on other boards.

 

I don't enjoy it here as much as I once did, not at all, though I'm not ready to sign off.

Peace to you!

Come less. Read less. Post less. But still here.

4. I'm with you, but I've depended on this place for 10 years--not there quite yet

Thanks for your participation.

So far, particularly after the events of the past week where the disconnect seems to have become insurmountable, I've been frequenting JPR, TruthDig, CounterPunch, a lot more of Naked Capitalism, Automatic Earth, and reading a daily dose of Science Daily, but DU always seemed like the one stop shop, plus I got all of those amazing pet rescue stories, debate from people around the world and updates on their experience of events in real time, links to scientific and health stories I always seemed to miss, good reads, recipes, ways to build squirrel baffels, and introductions to amazing people in my very own backyard. A real treasure for over a decade that I will be very sad to lose. Best of luck to you (and all of us). (

5. We're lessened by this, a lot.

Gratitude and peace to you. If the spirit moves you, hoping to see you here again. For all its flaws and challenges, there are opportunities to organize across the country for the good here that we haven't really even touched yet.

Aloha no marmar. You are a great DUer.

19. Too many DUers taking it too seriously?

 

To hear all these people on DU always getting so angrry and swearing it off seems like they are taking it way too seriously. I just come on here to keep informed a bit, make some comments and as kind of a break from real life and work. Nothing to get bent out of shape about if you just kind of go with the flow.

38. Agreed.

I come, read, post only a little, generally stay out of arguments, trash threads I find offensive. It's not that hard.

If and when I leave, I'll leave without comment. Of course, most people don't know me, won't miss me

Unfortunately, there is a major split within the Party. I'm not sure it can be healed and in fact, I'm not sure those in power want it healed.

41. Why

 

Well, if you need to "sign off" from a forum board on the internet, then I'm sorry your life is too wrapped up on here. One needs to live a somewhat carefree life. If you were a Bernie supporter and are leaving because of Hillary, well I'm not sure what to say. If you are growing tired of the manic, vitriol that is being thrown around, then I feel for you. If you are sick, then I hope all is well.

42. I totally get why.

DU used to be a great place. A real community. Intelligent people. Commonality.

Not so much anymore. A TON of posters who post without benefit of our long shared history. Lots that smells like Discussionist. I was gone for quite some time. Came back and started posting again a few months ago.

Overal rating: Meh.

Maybe I'll see you on the flip side.
