Nancy, no! This can't be the end! Please reconsider and come back to post your views whenever you want. Your words have always been a joy to read.

With rare exception, no matter what was said, the topic became "HOT" and more than once, had to be Locked by Staff here, and rightfully so. To me, that was so discouraging!

Certain topics are always going to become hot. But it's your opinion and insight that counts. Don't let locked threads and idiotic responses discourage you. That's just par for the course.

I hope you do come back, from time to time at least.

You will be missed. crying.gif

You have a good point for leaving , people who dont live in the US really should tone down their complaints against america as many of the verbal attacks one the US from those living outside contained an obvious hint that the writer of the complaint was basing it on uneducated and ignorant assumptions . You will be missed .

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

Nancy do not make this final. Keeping looking in, because nothing stays the same and one day this place will again feel like home to you and we will need you.

The silence of the caverns stand still

Fill my mug, I just want to forget
All the troubles and fighting
And the ghosts in my head --Battlelore

  crying.gif Nancy, no!  You must come back!   crying.gif  crying.gif


She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Lord Byron

AbductingU, I'm glad to say that Nacy is back and has been for a little.

The Mods And Admins have a tough job to do. They cannot, nor should they, have to monitor every thread.

I have almost withdrawn twice due to problems on this forum, But SaRuMaN dealt with the issues in a timely manner and convinced me to get my head out of my arse and stay. I'm glad I did. There are a lot of great folks here on this forum.
But like anywhere else in life, a few can make it difficult for the majority.

You cannot have debates on certain topics without feelings getting hurt at times. But bashing and name calling never help your side of an argument.

If you have ever seen some of the other forums out there, Name calling and bashing seem to be the name of the game. Saruman and the mods have tried to make this a place where that is not the rule.

(Of Course SaRuMaN will probably ban me for life and then some, once he finds out I corrected him in the pinned trivia thread crying.gif )

I do appreciate your taking the time to read any of my editorial efforts.

Welcome Aboard and I hope your journey through UM is fruitful!

I have returned, but still with trepidation.

Perhaps we will 'bump' into each other, somewhere on the Forums.

I'm flattered you noticed that I did make a U-turn back to "UM."

I agree completely with your assessment of the MODS and The Webmaster here.
They do exceptional work and really care about the Members.

I also agree that hurt feelings are just a part of "life" whether on the Internet, or in our daily lives. Yet, as you point out, "bashing" solves zip. However, there was a little more involved with my departure that I simply could not ignore.

So? I peek in now and then and post sparingly.
