    Default Good bye

    Due to my taking a stand in one of the native threads, and the subsequent ganging up. I have come to the sad and sudden realization that this place is not for me.

    As a consequence (I feel I am a person of principal), I will be deleting most of my photos found in this forum. I can't seem to delete my postings.

    I only post this so that you will not wonder why I am not participating here anymore. I will not post anything in the soapbox as some will construe that I am whining. Nothing would be further from the truth.

    I will keep my PMs open, as I will do one more leather project for a person who participates on this forum, So I will check the PM box on occasion. Other then that, it was a good run.

    Thanks for all the good times.

    Chako, you contribute so much, to leave is like admitting a defeat of sorts. I think you are a stronger personality then that! And I think the majority here benefit from your presence! And BTW, I missed what happened this evening due to work,(because it's a priority over this place), however, I would like to know what happened, and who offended you. Please feel free to PM me and let me know. I'm betting they aren't worth half of what you are feeling!

    i usually just walk away for a day of two, then i feel better. I also just remember, I am me, I like me... that is all that matters.

    Sometimes you just have to look at the source.

    I hope you come back. I really enjoyed your photos and creativity.

    Chako, I agree with all of the others posting in this thread. Some people on this site can be real jerks, but most of us are not.

    Please re-consider, perhaps if you prefer you can just avoid the soapbox?

    Many do!

    There are only a handful of idiots of here. Put them on ignore. You can't take this place personally. I mean really, how much influence do any of us have on other's on this board? Only the power we give em.

    It's too bad, you were one of the few reasons I stayed in this place... I hope you will reconsider.

    Chako, I don't know what happened last night but it will be a great loss to this board if you leave. I really enjoy the pictures you posted and information to help us all out. I know myself the links to photography I have either read or saved for future reading. Although some of it sailed right over my head. You brought so much to this board and it is a shame that a few could ruin it for you. Hope you reconsider and at least post your pictures for the ones who appreciate your work can enjoy still.

    Chako, although discussions get sometimes out of control you can't let things like that bother you. You do a lot of good for this forum and TONS of people obviously would rather you here. I being one of them. Your knowledge, expertise and beautiful photos are much appreciated. I think we all have had some sort of bad experience on here. I hope you leave it in the past, don't let it get to you and continue to join us on here.

    I wish you would reconsider but I understand where you are coming from and how frustrating this place can be. Take a break, maybe even a long one, but consider returning as many of us enjoy your input and find you anything but offensive and difficult.

    There are many pimples on the arse of Soonet but you certainly can't let them get to you. Although they make it ugly sometimes, it's not always a bad place.

    You are inspirational and always welcome and appreciated by most of us.

    Chako, we'd all rather read a well thought out response by you, than imbecilic drivel by uneducated ignoramuses. Take a break, cool down, and then get the heck back here. You are a thoughtful and important contributor to Soonet.

    Once, a few years ago, I left for about 6 months too. Then I came back with some perspective. Now I just laugh at those who drone on.......

    Please don't leave Chako, we need intelligent people on here, and you are one of them. I also worry about the things I say (type) on here, sometimes my mind goes faster than my fingers. I tend to go on and on, before I get to the point, and the point this time is,
