Life is seasonal or cyclic you might say. I came in here in the winter of my life. Alone, celibate, and less than thrilled about it. I have enjoyed the spring that a new love and new romance brings. I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful man come 5000 miles to spend the rest of his life with me. As my life continues to be fuller, happier, busier I find have less and less interest in being here.
A lot of it has to do with some of the current personalities on the forum. I am sick of the whining, crying, goading, and tattling that a few people seem to indulge in on a very regular basis. So I have resigned as a mod. There will be rejoicing from some I know but, I doubt it will change their forum experience much. As much as people would like to think moderation is personal it's just not.
I am not just resigning as a mod. I am leaving BN. I may be back periodically to check in and see how things are going, but my days as a regular are over.
I want to say a personal thanks to a few people before I go, all the mods (CW, HH, NoN, DD, AMBS, NB, RR, Darky, Dee, Smike) it hasnt always been easy but I will say it has been a pleasure to be part of a team with you all. Then to those who have made the forums fun for me...IT, Met, Mikey, Rosie, HW, WWS, WWP, Honey, Red.and QM... I am sure there are others I am forgetting but dont think that it means I dont care just that I cant think of you all under pressure.
I hope that you all find what you are looking for as I have always said on here there is someone here for everyone, you just have to be patient in finding them.
Good luck and much love,
