Default Just letting you know

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

I am taking another leave of absence from the forum. The rest of the mod team will take great care of you as always!

Nothing is wrong- I just need to focus elsewhere for a bit.

I love you all and will miss you.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!

When I wrote Nikki is a rock to this Forum I know... I hit my head on it a few times over the years. As I reflect back... it was self inflicted.

Again Nikki... thanks for putting up with me.

Yep. My whole life can be summed up in two two-word phrases.

"Self-inflected cautionary tale."

In Nikki's absence, we'll have plenty of attention from mods Lauri Lgelb, Gregk, Fiona Shiftkicker, and me--Mike Atsugi.

Well... the Forum sure doesn't suffer from a shortage of Moderators.

Somebody has to answer those DIHALS'ers besides one or two of the regular members.

PS. To all members. Over the past few years I have heard from members who felt once a Moderator replied to a Thread they felt reluctant to follow the Moderator's reply. This is a Forum. If you have an opinion or disagree with a point... you can follow a Moderator's reply with your opinion or disagreement. It's a Forum.

Being a Moderator wasn't meant to be "The last word" or be authoritarians to the Forum.

Well, I may end up in the dog house again... been there before.

Sorry I keep adding to this... don't be a member who is reluctant to post your opinion or disagree because you may not be liked. Forget that... and those little green reputation squares. Everyone's thoughts/opinions makes a Forum vibrant.

Well.. I've probably gone and done it now.

Al,

I think you've mellowed during the last few months. Perhaps the Christmas shopping is keeping you busy.

As far as posting my opinion, I've never held back in the least. I very much appreciate the moderators but I've never thought for a second that, as long as I play by the rules, I was not free to express myself.
