Berkeleyan, why do you say so? I like your posts very much. And, thou I'm not one of the most regular members, I feel the atmosphere here is quite good, if you compare it with PM.com, for instance, wich I don't appreciate at all (inspite of being a member too, of course).
It's only natural that people sometimes disagree on some topics, but that's just part of the fun.
Please do reconsider, ok?
Hi Paulo, Hi Guru
Thank you for the words of encouragement. My words above may sound bitter and sad, but that's NOT the case. I'm fine, I still enjoy posting and reading posts from fellow forum members. Further, I have NO problems with people who disagree w/ me or are in a different wavelength than me.
That's life. The thing is, sometimes I feel I;m out of touch with many of you that write in this Forum. For instance, I don't follow closely day to day events and gossip and the like; I do NOT like the large majority of bands and artists that create the today's sound (like Keane, Coldplay, Robbie, Beyonce, etc., etc.). But hey, that's just me. I just love old stuff: Beatles, The Who, Deep Purple, etc.etc., Wings, Solo Beatles (well not all of their albums), etc., etc. In addition to that, I don't feel like discussing current events that display anger, killings and wars, the Bush and other administrations and other subjects that disgust me. I'm all for peace and love.
Anyway, I'll be posting occasionally (not much time for that anyway) since I enjoy the forum and the large majority of its members. But the thing is, it's inevitabel that sooner or later a cahnge of guard will occurr (if it hasn't occurred yet) in this forum and since I pretty much only like"old stuff", I get out of touch and disposition to write about contemporary stuff - unless it's a good opportunity to POKE FUN at some issue or person that deserves it !
This is it in a nutshell. I'm not leaving just now, but I might, in the near future - or just slowly fade away in the e-fogs......
