Thank you Gentoo for all you gave.

As a distro of Linux, Gentoo is unsurpassed, however, some (a lot) of the people in these forums are sick morons that I have no interest in dealing with anymore.

I'm withdrawing from the forums and I'm informing the site admins and the rest of the moderators that I can not longer continue as a moderator of a forum that contains so many sick and stupid morons as this forum has gotten lately.

Erik

As gentoo gets more popular, and gains a more diverse audience of users(and haters/trolls etc.), an off the wall section gets less and less suitable.

I did not like your Christian comment. (Sorry if that wasn't you). It was very anti-Christian. I'm not anti-buddhist. They can continue to worship Buddah. (The comment about we should all die or something)

Goodbye, I don't much mind, though I do like your avatar :).

What gets me is that he threw his panties off, twisted them, and put them back on when he is rebutted with facts he can't dispute. I can understand a bleeding heart, but to intend or motivate someone to "do something" that is against what a populace wants is no different than 'nam.

They don't want anyone over there, they don't want anything different, why "do something" when it is outside of our sovereighnty?

I suppose so but still :(

I don't know what particular the circumstances are. I stay away from most of OTW. I guess being a mod, you can't.

I just hate to see people who have so much to give to Gentoo, leave.

That is #2 (that I know of). Very sad indeed.

Oh no! Please, Erik, don't do this! For the love of Gentoo and Off The Wall, we can't afford to lose you! The world is filled with morons, don't let them get the best of you, your opinions and comments are valued too much to let others drive you away!

just have to take things with a grain of salt. it is sad that people can act in
such a way, to drive someone to come to this point.

sometimes threads are best (or not) read and never answered ;)

Oh, sorry, but I was talking about oldsk00l dragging his quarrel into this thread.

Frankly, I don't care one whit whether someone wants to stay or go. Gentoo and its forums will be just fine either way. Of course, creating a thread to tell everyone that you're leaving is unbecoming behavior out of anyone, much less a moderator. But then, wishing for the death of forum members certainly isn't any better.

The best thing that could happen to both threads is that they be locked.

*yawn*

Thanks ebrostig, you certainly did the community a lot of service through your moderation. Thanks a lot :)

Hope to see you continue to post once in a while, try to stay off Off the Wall, eh? 8)

I can imagine why ebrosting want's to leave with the recent arrival of some "extreme" (or stupid like you say) people (i am not going to call names, but zenlunatic rings a bell ;) ). Unfortunatly, stupid people are everywhere and not posting on these forums will not make them go away. A final solution is suicide, but that's a bit over the edge :wink: . Instead, i suggest you use the powers given to you by phpBB and ban some people :twisted: . Doing something evil and immoral/unfair like that once in a while just feels good (a few years as an irc op have learned me that nothing releaves stress like a /kb ).

Code:

          not
                 that anyone cares, but
         i'm getting to feel
                                 the same way.

off
the
wall                       just isn't the same

            anymore.

very few topics
                 are worth spending the

                  time

         to read

Erik,
thanks for all your efforts as a moderator.
I'm gonna miss your witty comments.
I hope you'll keep hanging around these forums in your new role, where you can avoid the morons.

Sorry to hear anybody leaves the forum. Sorry if you got personal offence from me. Anyway, I suggest cooling down and thinking this decision. Lovechild and ebrostig have been lost in 1 month. OTW will certainly be much more boring now.
