Signing off taxi.net for a while

Discussion in 'The Taxidermy Industry' started by AndyO, Jul 10, 2007.

  1. After viewing my stats and seeing I've spent 22 days on taxi.net it's time to log off for a while. I went back and read through some posts and noticed I've become a "salty ass". I spend more time defending my replies than providing useful information. I think the long time Taxi.net users all go through a time when they need to get away for a while-- it's my time now.

    I'm sure I'll stop in time to time to lurk (who can pass up the fish of the week thread ;))

    Hope to see some of you this month in Kentucky.

    No harm in lurking, Andy, and I think your opinion is always welcome here! Hurry back.

    Andy, your responses are always inciteful and well thought out. You provide a mellowness that some of us lack or have discarded and the new guys, still full of the excitement of this industry, need that perspective. Stop taking comments that people like me make personal. It's not intended that way. This should be like golf. If one hole gave your trouble, the tee box on the next hole is right there in front of you starting a clean slate. Hang on in there.
  5. 22 hours?? I am up to 10 days plus, darn I have some catching up to do. NOT!! Good luck.

    I have nothing against this guy but......why do people always think it is necessary to ANNOUNCE their leaving of a BB!?!? Just leave.

    Do they want everyone to go "oh, don't leave, Please, please".

    If your leaving .....leave. Just my opinion.
  12. Geez Jim! Maybe he has a few friends on here and was just trying to let them know he wouldn;t be around for a while. No harm in that is there?

    I guess not if that was the point.

    Look I think EVERYONE has value on a board such as this. Even those who people think are jerks. Message boards allow people to be a little more open in their dialog. something that is sorely missed in the good ol USA these days.

    I belong to several message boards and it always gets my goat when people post the "I'm leaving because I get yelled at" or "I am leaving because no one understands me". If someone posted "I will be gone because I am moving or on vacation" that is different.

    Andy, you shouldn't "leave". Just learn to read posts that may interest you, answer when it motivtes you, and always speak your mind. Salty or not. You can spend 15 minutes a day on here and see what you need to see.
