Forum "I quit" Notes made easy.

In light [pun intended] of the recent rash of forum and geocacing suicides the admins have [not] been in contact with me to make this handy form. Should you feel the need to quit geocaching and/or the forums please use this form and post it to save time. Use of this form will allow you to expedite your departure and will prevent the forum doors from hitting you in the butt on the way out.

 

I [state your moniker here] no longer wish to participate in geocaching.

 

After [check the traumatic life altering event below]

 

[ ] My cache was denied.

[ ] I was flamed in the forums.

[ ] I got an email.

[ ] Saw a light path near a cache.

[ ] I found a lame cache.

[ ] Realized fair trades means me.

[ ] My ‘big uns’ signature item was ruled not family friendly.

 

I have come to the conclusion that. [check your conclusion below]

 

[ ] The admins suck

[ ] Geocaching.com sucks

[ ] The forum regulars suck

[ ] All threads that start with Woo Hoo suck.

[ ] Jeremy sucks.

[ ] Everybody but me sucks.

 

Because of this [check your reason for resentment below]

 

[ ] Blatant disrespect for my sensitive nature.

[ ] Utter lack of bowing and groveling at my feet.

[ ] Lack of acknowledgment that my new idea is better.

[ ] Display of online attention directed at me.

 

I can no longer participate in geocaching and/or these forums. As far as my caches go you can [select final cache disposition]

 

[ ] Archive them and make them into cache litter.

[ ] Adopt them to people who care.

[ ] Divide them up like the bickering slobs that you are.

[ ] Let me list them on another site.

[ ] Stuff them where the sun don’t shine.

 

As a final note just let me say that. [choose your parting shot from those provided below]

 

[ ] This has been the worst experience of my life.

[ ] It’s been really fun and I’m not sure why I’m going but it’s something I must to do be true to myself.

[ ] That will teach you, you rat bastards.

[ ] I’m not going to tell you the story why I left even thought I made this big long suicide note for the forums.

[ ] You can kiss my a__.

I hate to say this but........

 

This list should be posted as a sticky in the Getting Started forum. People who are new to Internet Forums, IRC, Newsgroups and Mailing lists could learn a lot from reading and re-reading that parting letter!

 

Thanks for making me chuckle for quite a long time.

Nobody can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

The fool who knows he is a fool is for that reason very wise. The fool who thinks himself wise is the greatest fool of all.

Let's see if this works from my side of the fence.

Pretty good. I only needed to customize one response!

Was it that doll baby for sale on EBAY? That freaked me out.

"[ ] The GPS I got is not color-coordinated with my shoes, neither are the web-colors of geocaching .com, and on top of that, on my latest cache search, I had a manicure emergency... I BROKE A NAIL!!"

 

Being female don't mean ya automatically got yourself a nice excuse to be a wimp. icon_wink.gif

I hope that someday we will be able to put away

our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

"Dursleyed"? icon_confused.gif Is that an Harry Potter reference? What does it mean?

Another reference I don't get, but just reading your description of it is pretty creepy icon_eek.gif

Oops... I am still here.


 

Well, I don't much care for inflamitory posting, but I saved the pic from your profile to my computer before even that gets clipped. I actually think it's dadgum funny and I kinda agree with your latest news. I hope, in the future, that you find more satisfaction with all of this. I just can't let myself get heartburn over it. Geocaching has been too positive an experience for me.

 

Hope ya don't get banned. icon_wink.gif

Yes Taken by persons who DIDN'T believe what was right in front of them- TOTAL denial.

 

Didn't read the Label, didn't read the NOTE, just took the whole thing...
