A Final Goodbye
« on: January 24, 2010, 12:58:38 PM »
Most of you here most likely know me. I was a big support spammer back in the day when I first started (March '09), and somehow made it onto the Team here. I must say, I was completely shocked and surprised to get an invite to the team. It was a great honor and pleasure to have helped so many people whether it be in support or customization or wherever I could help.

I have evolved personally with this project. Many people here have helped be get through some tough times in my life, and it absolutely kills me to have to leave. I have made some great friends here, including JimM, Fustrate, Nas, Arantor, SlammedDime, LexArma and many others. I actually blame them for letting me stick around :P

Well, to get to the point, in short I am leaving SMF for good. There are just some things here that I don't completely agree with, and can't in good conscience stick around. It has been a great pleasure getting to know you all and help you out, and you are one of the best communities I've had the pleasure of being a part of.

Adieu,
JBlaze

Hopefully we'll keep in touch :) I've still got 5 days to wait for my badge change, so I can still pester you for a few more days.

Sorry to see you go, you were one of the main reasons I joined the team in the first place :(
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

* Arantor resists the urge to say something naughty.

As long as you do what you do, enjoy doing it and it works for you, it's all good.

Another Team member fading in the shadow.  :(
“There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again."

If the pleasure's gone, I guess it's only right that you do, JB.


Bummer, though.
