So long guys.

this is a discussion within the NOLA Community Forum; I have to admit Gumbo that I do not want to see you go -- Usually you will be reasonable when someone engages you seriously-- a trait which I like --- you just react to harshly at times when people ...

So long guys.

I have to admit Gumbo that I do not want to see you go -- Usually you will be reasonable when someone engages you seriously-- a trait which I like --- you just react to harshly at times when people do not want to debate or discuss on a serious level. In any case -- don\'t leave -- it really is not necessary or desired

So long guys.

Shadow,

I understand your concern. However, Gumbo has a long history here, and at one time he was banned for breaking rules (that happened early on in my time here, and I don\'t know all the details, and I\'m not sure they matter). He, unlike others who have never been banned from the site for their own behavior, made some promises upon his return - HE felt like HE wasn\'t upholding them.

Gumbo\'s post is unclear with respect to his belief regarding \"rocking the boat\". I\'m not sure how to take that, but it is possible that he just got that sense from comments by other posters.

Either way, people should not worry about being capriciously run off at any momment. Gumbo\'s choices and his current choice have lead to his departure.

I enjoy Gumbo\'s posts too, and this decision seems a bit out of place to me. People in this thread have let him know how they feel. It is up to him to decide if he got his metaphorical (and not literal) hug and if he feels like his return will contribute to the community here.

So long guys.

I just don\'t get this either. What is it about \"some\" posters that makes them feel they have to announce their departure?

I\'m serious. Some psychologist should do a study on why some people have to tell you they\'re leaving and others just leave.

And on top of it all, many of those who tell us they\'re leaving end up coming back.

I don\'t wish anyone on here to have a bad time or that they leave. As I have said before this site is best when more people are posting.

I guess I just don\'t understand the soap opera.

they want to feel important and put on the show..this is the second time in the past six months that he\'s done something like this..my take-everyone is not going to agree with you, and sometimes we are wrong in our views---if you can\'t handle that..good riddence.

and no-i have nothing against gumbo-most of his takes are thought out..I just disagree with his basic premise that AB should carry no blame and its\' every one else\'s fault. I\'ve been watching sports too long to buy into the espn-highlight film hype of any player.

I think Gumbo\'s view was this: AB should take much less blame than people were assigning to him, not that AB should take no blame. In fact, I\'m sure, looking back, you\'ll find many places where Gumbo did blame AB for a variety of things.

So long guys.

the people here, not the mods..just the people..make this a decent place to hang out...
...then two posts later...

When I said Mods..I meant WHODAT
So why didn\'t you just say WhoDat? Oh, so you could directly tie it to how this site\'s managed? Let me guess, college student that\'s taken too many poly sci classes and feels he stands for truth, justice, and the American way?
I did enjoy reading your posts at one time, but this \"victim\" stance you\'ve taken is lame, especially when you generalize all the mods to try to drive home a point.
Was that the best you and the thousands that originally left the site because of your pm\'s, asking people to leave with you, could come up with?
