I'm spending way too much time which I don't really have doing something I don't really like for people who don't really care.

I quit

The Tank will reopen when the admins find someone else to mod it.

Friends, you can send me an email or find me on Facebook. The rest of you, best of luck.

Alright Syl, too bad, cya and hope things go well. Sorry for being one of the ones who doesn't care (i.e. post?) that much, I just have trouble making sense of things these days.

All of us have trouble making sense of things, which is why we come to the Tank.

Joy is in the ears that hear, not the mind that arrives at that which it thinks is a solution to something.

I guess it won't hurt to say thank you here as well Smile So, Syl, thank you for trying to keep an eye on the Tank - it's definitely a job similar to keeping water in a seive both in efficiency and in its rewards - and for company in general.

Well, looks like it works anyway. Av, thanks for organazing this and spreading the information.

Thank you. The tone will be different now because I expect people to act like adults; this is a good thing since I treat people like adults...at least until their actions prove otherwise. I don't think we are going to have any worries moving forward into the future.

lucimay....I don't recall you being a frequent visitor to the Tank. My hope is that that will change and that you will become a frequent visitor and poster here. Your viewpoints, opinions, and outlooks would be a highly valuable addition to our group discussion here.

no I haven't posted in the tank for a while now.

it got a little too...gosh, i'm looking for a word here that will not be offensive to Anyone...I dunno...heated? personal? not fun? heh.
I didn't feel I could come into the tank and just state my opinion.
I felt I had to defend every opinion with outside sources and documentation.
I couldn't just say what I thought and have a FRIENDLY discussion.

ya know I don't expect everyone to agree with me nor do I care if they
disagree. I originally liked coming to the tank and reading all the differing
opinions, and many times I actually learned things or changed my opinions.
that was the fun of it for me.

that stopped happening so I stopped reading or posting in the tank.

and I actually lost and alienated at least 2 members who I had considered friends. that hurt me a great deal. so it just wasn't worth it to me to participate.

but time marches on and things change as much as they stay the same, right? Very Happy

so ya never know, I may pop in now and again to see how it's going. Very Happy

Please do. You could be the one who starts helping turn the Tank into what you remember--a place where people may express their opinions about current events and politics without fear of attack. If you choose to try and back up your opinion with statistics or research then do so; if you choose not to then don't worry about it because there is no pressure to do so. Our goal is "spirited and insightful discussion", not "brow-beat your opponents into submission".

I'm on the same page as lucimay.

But I'll stop in every now and then and see how things are going.

I have a lot less time for this stuff than I used to.

Congratulations... or condolences... I guess a bit of both. Condolulations Smile How could this be achieved? Did they threaten you, did they use your own zone implants, did they summon the Great Cthulhu? Smile

Oh well, a bit more seriously - I'm really glad Very Happy And I'm afraid to make promises, but I'll try to more or less behave and assist if possible.

Avatar agreed to pay me a lavish annual salary and gave me a corner office with a wonderful view.

Any assistance or advice would always be welcome. If I don't receive input from other people I fear it will turn into "my" Tank rather than "our" Tank; that is a situation I would like to avoid, if possible.
