msm877, you have (had) 11 posts to your name. You are new here. DO NOT start posting messages about other members, when you really don't know the score here.
I'm not even going to mention the topic, and I've deleted every message that even makes mention of the topic. You know exactly what the topic of your message was, and you are never to go there again, unless you want to be an ex-member.
This topic itself is ridiculous.
I'm tired of people who say they're leaving, and make a big production out of it.
If Lottery Post is not your cup of tea, then just don't come here. I spend a lot of personal time and energy making sure no foul bullies are here.
There is also a big, fat "Report" button on each message, so if someone doesn't like what's posted, there is a way to let me know directly.
After all these measures I take and time I spend, if there is a member who has such a fragile self-esteem, or ego, or whatever it is, that they cannot take a hint of criticism to something they post on a forum web site, then I would suggest that person not participate in forums in general.
This is about as friendly a forum as you'll find anywhere, and if you can't handle it here, then build your own website and you'll see how difficult it can be.
Now, that being said, I'm sad for anyone who will miss the postings of someone like tntea who chooses to leave. I do not wish ill-will on anyone, and my message to tntea would be that you are welcome to post here whenever you like, and I personally like you. You are a nice person, and you try to help other people. If you're willing to listen to some advice, I would suggest that you learn to ignore those who bother you, engage in discussion with those whom you like, and use the Report button if someone tries to spoil your fun.
Complaining to other members about something someone posts will not help, because I can't possibly monitor every thread here. I rely on members to hit the Report button if something bad is posted, and I am vigilant about deleting bad posts and terminating the accounts of Trolls (those who exist merely to annoy and offend others).
If you (anyone) does not wish to post anymore, then it is just best to delete Lottery Post from your Internet browser's list of favorites, and quietly find another site that suits you better. There have been times when people who choose to leave make big statements about leaving, and then later when they eventually come back, it's kind of strange. Or, if they don't come back, they just seem like they're trying to get attention on the way out.
So, bottom line: I enjoy all the various members here, and I don't want any of you to leave. But if you do choose to go, just do it without fanfare.
