Thank You & Farewell

My dear Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf,

Due to the absolute horseshit Ive seen on the forums this weekend, Im calling it a CCom career. These are not the only recent issues that have made me feel like I dont fit in this community, only the ones which have cemented the feeling. Hate and rage are NOT why I come here, and I dont wish to witness it anymore, so Im taking the advice of one of our new members who told the "vets" of the forum that if they didnt like the way the forums were changing, they should just move on.

Sage advice. Thank you.

So, to wit - I want to extend my sincere thanks to the great people I have met here over the years. You provided a total newb who couldnt figure out how to fill his lighter when he came here an invaluable amount of great information about the hobby and always have been there to answer my questions, no matter how far into the "again with this?" or "what is he talking about?" categories they happened to fall into. I appreciate you taking me into the community with open minds and hearts, and making me feel like a part of a great family. Just in case nobody has told you lately, you ARE appreciated and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.

This will be my last post on the open forum. For anyone who wishes to stay in touch with me, please shoot me a pm and we can exchange email / phone / etc information to keep in touch. I hope to hear from many of you who have become friends over the years. If you happen to see me ghosting on the forums, it is for that purpose and that purpose ONLY. I will check in periodically for a week or two to facilitate this, but thats all. In short, Im done folks. To quote from a pm I once received from a friend on here, "Read enough, heard enough, seen enough."

I leave you to it folks. Remember, these forums will only be what you, as a group make of them. Best of luck to you all.

Sniper OUT.

    Hey brother I'm sorry you feel the way that you do! I really hope you will stick around! I do understand where you are coming from but it seems you have put time into these forums and it's ashame you are leaving. I know we have not really exchanges words but as a member of the forums I feel we all count and a loss of one member especially a vet member is horrible! I hope you consider staying and if not I wish you the best!!

    Personally, I don't like seeing anyone leave.
    As I told another member, it's like part of the family leaving and that is never good.

    Families often have their problems and problem children.
    When someone leaves, I'm bothered by that. It means that we, the members of the forum failed.
    Especially when they leave on bad terms and are a liked part of the forum.

    WTF? I've been a little busy, haven't seen anything of the magnitude to cause something like this. You and I haven't always agreed, but I've always respected your opinion. PM to you.

    One of our finest members leaves us today.. Many of you will never know what Sniper brought to this forum. Those that received one of his bombs with the threat of " I Keeel you ! " will never forget. I am going to miss you.

    Damn ... Glen you have a PM from a few days ago about our talk . I have all your numbers bro and you have mine . What a cryin stinkin shame to lose a guy like this . This forum has definitly changed in the 4 years I have been here , lot more bad attitude and a lot less " little friendly cigar hangout " . *%&^$#@!*&^%$#@! Sorry to see ya leave here bro , yours is one of a handful of old timers names I look for when I log into the forum .

    I know I spend a lot less time here than in the past due to family / life things that need to come first but damn I hate to see this . And if a new-comer made the comment if the vets don't like the way the forum is changing move on ... to you sir or madame ... I applaude your agility ... able to put your foot in your mouth and your head up your a_ss at the same time ... your parents must be proud .

    God Damn, Glen! I have no idea what the friggin' hell I missed but I get your frustration all the same. I get so sick of the bickering hogging up posts on threads I'd otherwise be interested in reading I stay off the forums longer and longer myself.

    I have had an ABSOLUTE BLAST conversing, trading and bombing back and forth with you. In my opinion you are the epitome of a BOTL and I will dearly miss your presence on the forums. Be well, brother.

    It was me, I am the one that made the comment. My comment was not directed towards the vets of the board, and was never meant to be taken as me saying that a vet should leave because the forums are changing. I was questioning a vet on what he was saying and that what he was saying was going against what he was saying. Looking back, I was totally out of line.
    All I was doing was standing up for a new member, and myself and others who are new and not like seagarlover, and I for one dont want to be grouped in the same "new member" group as seagarlover. I sent Sniper a PM apologizing if he took my post the wrong way and that if my actions were the the straw that broke the camels back, that I would hope that he would reconcider. I am new to cigars and to the forum, and I dont want the reputation of a trouble maker or *** head. I just wanted to set the record straight with all of you, and my sincerest apology to all members new and old. My intentions were never to piss anyone off or offend anyone.

    Glen, You were the very first person to PM me when I had a question about my humi. It was my first day on the board and you walked me thru getting it seasoned propperly. This forum benefits from people like you and leaving will not make this place better... only a little more empty. Stick it out brother.
