Brigadiers last post

So what happened to Brigadiers last post then, the one where he said he was resigning from the forum? Some people posted on to that thread asking him to reconsider but the whole thread has been deleted. Why was that, can we have an explanation please.

Too much oxygen of publicity is my guess.

You cannot resign from a forum.
Drift far away,yes.

Too much support for the Brigadier from other members is my guess.

Long ago, I decided that we wouldn't provide the oxygen of publicity to people who wanted to post 'I've had enough of people not agreeing with me, I'm off' threads in the hope that everyone would rush in saying 'please don't go, everything you say is wonderful, and the forum will be a cultural wasteland without you in it'.

It's a form of self aggrandisement, and we're not at home to that. Nobody 'resigns' from a web forum - if you want to cease posting you cease posting, end of story.

it's their choice, but I don't see why they have to post about it, just go.
