The forum couldn't function without us collectively but, as individuals, we come and go and none of us is indispensable. If we think we are we are deluded.
I'm no better than anyone else and have never elevated myself in any way here. But I am really upset by the fact that I have helped RW out with pacing at short notice, and I have helped RW out by being a guest Editor when they needed it. I have LOST money to RW by promoting the brand.
AND yet in a heartbeat, I'm nothing and of no use, because people complained. People who don't even post here on a regular basis.
I didn't say you did actually - I was merely trying to point out the transient nature of the forum.
But clearly still not moving on though, despite the earlier comment.
To clarify my point, I have a great marriage, good friends and great kids. So, that is obviously what's important and trumps anything, but I actually have a fondness for this place and I think to completely screw me regarding the pacing I've done, the articles I've helped with and the people I took under my wing when they started on here. YES, I've been shafted.
They just can't take being personally called out.
The problem is that the pacing and whatever was years ago - years before lots of the current posters were here. I've been here since 2007 and you've been bringing the same stuff up for as long as I can remember.
I don't know why you can't let the past go and move on. It isn't doing anybody any good - least of all you.
