(adios)

I started getting involved with this site because I wanted to become a smarter person.
The site made me a smarter person, but it didn't make me a better person. There's so much vitriol and immaturity that, from my perspective, it's not worth it to stay. The site isn't really about debating; it's about childish antics and calling others stupid. I stayed longer than I thought I would because A) I thought I could make the site better if only I put in an effort, and B) There was someone who needed me. But it hasn't worked (and given the current direction of the site, it won't for a while), and that person's unfortunately gone, so all my tethers to the site are gone. Shout-outs to the friends that made my time here enjoyable. You know who you are.

I'll still do Hangouts from time to time, but I'm done here for the foreseeable future.

Wise Choice! I should have stayed off, when I closed my account last night. I may close it again tonight and try to have more will power. I wish you the best. I hope Miss Bailey is ok.

I'm going to pick on this line. You are not a smarter person. You just better know, now, how to use your already existent cognitive abilities. You didn't grow smarter, you grew as a thinker - which is a lot more admirable than showing off natural eloquence - though you are naturally smart to begin with.

Second, you prove the second half of that sentence wrong in this thread alone. A good person is defined by their devotion to improving lives - thus making the world a better place than it previously was. Now, let me quote you.

There was someone who needed me

And that's a reason you stayed here. Ultimately, I know that is what drove you to stay here longer. So, I think you have shown your worth as a person. From a distance: if you were scanning a random forum and there was someone who needed help, the vast majority of people would feel no obligation to help. They would say "that's sad" and move on to something else. But you were here, entrenched in the site. And when a member needed someone, you filled the need. Anyone else could have done it, but you helped someone you didn't know, and you made it an obligation to help that person out of your own goodness.

When it is all said and done, you grew personally as a thinker. You tried to help people (including me) that you had no previous ties to. I'd say you grew as a person in your time here.
I'll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon.
