Is there some particular reason Mike has made no announcement here that he is leaving PF? Instead, he pulls out all his posts and fades into nothingness.

Seems someone has found his posts 'offensive' or something, and that he's tired of that kind of crap going on here on PF, according to what is posted on the Fur-haven forums.

Now, I can't remember a single post of his that I found offensive.
A few that I didn't agree with, maybe, but nothing offensive.

The Bookshelf forum has auto-prune set to 1 year, so old topics that haven't been posted to in a while will disappear. When all topics are gone he plans to remove the forum and delete his user completely.

Anthony, Mike may have already removed his user account. I've done a search for it several different ways to no avail.

I suppose those few folks that wanted him gone are happy now. He will be missed by the majority.

A very sad Kellan Sad

I don't know some of his puns got pretty bad. But I still miss him here none the less. Sad

No, his account's still here but renamed (found his old PMs in my message box).

I know what you mean and on top of his leaving PF the Raccoon's Bookshlef store has been closed, I hope he'll be able too reopen it again soon...

While I have been around for a few years I don't say much, just lurk. I mostly came for the stories on the Bookshelf. I know he is not gone completely, just moved to another forum. I have to say I did note a number of comments directed at him, or seemed to be, by members here and I could tell they made him feel unwanted. I saw him try his best to ignore them and continue to do his best for the forum here but the last comment really hurt him and was the one to finally break his spirit.

Sad really. Probably why I seldom say anything in a forum.

Now back to lurking.
