Don't think too much. You are somewhat synonymous with Asean Now as a regular poster along with a handful of others. I think your honest posts are liked by most.

It's hard to reconcile the 'pub' posts and the posts where you seem to support some authoritarian non democratic types but that's often the strange thing about Asean now. People's attitudes to personal issues can seem at odds with how they see the wider world.

Let us always keep in mind that perception is not reality.

You have been here for 16 years.

 

The first time I read a TV post was just over nine years ago.

 

Therefore, you have been here not much longer than I.

 

Yet, you have obviously been far more dedicated to keeping this forum alive, than I.

 

And so, regarding your tentative au revivor swan song...

 

I think that somebody, although not me, should say.....

 

We do not accept your resignation.

Full stop!

 

As you will recall, during the Nixon years, there were always those who wished to bail out, and jump ship.

 

However, rarely were their resignations accepted.

 

It was always stated that these workers, diplomats, and bureaucrats, had a duty to their country, especially while fighting the Vietnam war.

 

And now, here we find ourselves in much the same situation.

 

We do not wish to lose even one good man.

We cannot afford such a loss.

 

Therefore, you must reconsider.

 

Taking a break is reasonable and logical.

 

Hopefully, you will take a nice vacation, recharge your batteries, and then rejoin our flock.

 

Where would we be without this forum, really?

 

I do not ask this question in jest, no way.

 

Have a nice rest, for sure.

 

Regards,

Globule

Do you think he would have told us if he was? By the way, how many funerals have you been to? Perhaps you haven't noticed but they always leave head first, not feet first.

Actually, have you not noticed. It is not possible to resign from the forum? At least I have yet find a button which says 'cancel my profile. (or some such) And yes, I have looked several times!

Most likely, there is no need for such a button.

 

The powers that be, on TV, most likely, just expect us to fade away, like the old soldiers we know we are.

Thank you for your contributions, varied and thoughtful.

 

If I'm still around, by the time you return, I look forward to reading more of them.

I gave up after day 2, but here we are.

Put everyone on ignore, change your password to something random, then log out.

It's actually more entertaining reading as a guest.

I tried that but I soon encountered a problem. If you come and visit as a guest, all those irritating people who you've put onto your 'ignore user' list suddenly come back to life again!

Don't worry you won't be missed - Most members were not aware of your existence and anyway there are many forums with well informed,  erudite,  broad minded people where you can discuss numerous  subjects.

If BritmanToo leaves, I go as well.
Live would never be the same again.

I would even consider to move to Zimbabwe.

and remember what Nixon said on his departure.

 

Which departure?

 

What did he say?

 

Don't leave us hanging.

Maybe not relevant but I once told Ken Bates that I had never flown on Concorde.

 

That's nothing. i told Master Bates he was a toss pot back in the day.

Like your posts. Always knew I was getting an authentic self and not a projected avatar so many people/posters put out to the world.
