I've always wondered why long-time members of PF occasionally left, or at least why some of them took breaks from this place. By now, I guess I'm one of the "old guard", myself ... and I'm finally beginning to understand why some of them do so.

I'm going away for a bit. I might ... or might not ... check my forum here during the time I'm away. I don't know, to be honest. I've got stuff written and ready to be posted, and that will still get done regularly and on time, to those who give a damned.

Over the years I've been here, I've managed to step quite severely on the toes of a lot of you. I know a lot of you still think of me as little better than a forum troll, because of some of the problems that arose during my first year or two on PF. That's your opinion, you're entitled to it, and I'm sure those of you who feel that way will be more than happy to see me go.

Lately, I find myself increasingly at odds with a number of people here. I find myself increasingly disillusioned with parts of the furry community here on PF. I won't name anyone. It's uncalled for, and there's no point in dragging anyone's name out in public, just because I personally have a problem with something. However, certain opinions have been voiced to me over the last six months or so, that have slowly but surely made me realize that I probably would do well to piss off, not to put too fine a point on it. I'm not quite ready to leave permanently, but I have no idea when I'll be back as an active poster.

Some of you have my Email-address, and you're welcome to use it, but I ask that one thing is respected, and that is that I'm not vetted on "why're you doing this?"

I realize some people might want to know, but I don't want to talk about it, and in the end, that decision is mine to make. I don't want to waste one more second of my life with bile rising in my throat because of the things that have been said over the last half year. There are enough things in the world to be annoyed at. This shouldn't be one of them. This should just be a hobby. A place to go for a bit of fun. Right now, it isn't.

End rant.

The way I see it, you're outspoken, not afraid to take a stance, and if a few toes gets squished under a steel-capped hoof... Them's the breaks...

I believe the two of us haven't always seen eye to eye on things, but then again, I like a good argument now and then, so that's a win-win situation.

I don't post very often in your story topics, but that's just because I don't have anything to add, and I so hate those 'me too' type posts.

So, keep writing, and don't you dare stay away for too long.

We'll have a mug with cold lemonade or warm chocolate ready, depending on the time of your return. Go in peace.

Hmmm, your having hooves does make it a little harder to step on without just being nasty but...if you feel you need the break, then by all means - TAKE IT! It's your mental health (so make the best of it)...

Should still be here when you return (nothing about the future is ever 100%, well other than death and taxes, and I'm not sure bout the last)

Take a break and I'll be here when you return.

Take care,

Does that make me a member of the old guard now? o3o

Oh well, hope you find the peace you're looking for. I know how you feel. I don't exactly get along with some people around here m'self.

Granted the worst of them left. So I guess my biggest feud left with him. On the flip side one of my closest friends (Vee) also left. Crying or Very sad

I'm getting off topic. Take care.

will definitely miss you Aslaug. I may not have been very outspoken but I do enjoy your writings. Your skills are by far Superior to mine. I've been on this forum for a great many years now myself. In that time I've never really said much but I've seen a lot come and go and well, I hope to see you again. Gonna miss you till then.
