    I just saw that post, and I don't understand why it would make you want to leave.

    Actually, it was the straw that broke the camel's back. I joined the internet in 2004, and on a daily or semi-daily basis since then, I've attempted "smart" or "witty" sayings or actions that make me pwn the conversation or give me the upper hand or give everyone a good lol, and every single time, I've failed. Every. Single. Time.

    And it usually winds up getting people mad at me, or me making me a fool of myself.

    And not just here on CFC, but every other forum as well.

    The whole time, all I've done is repeatedly make a fool of myself, and alienate myself from online society. Every step forward in attempting to integrate into online society, I make three steps backwards. And lately, I feel as though I've overstayed my welcome, which is another factor in my decision to leave. Hell, I'm not sure if I even had a welcome in the first place.

    I guess it's time for me to move on. The only other forum I go to that is as active as CFC I've wound up alienating myself from a long time ago. No one responds to any of my posts there. Any. All the other forums I frequent have very little activity. The only chatroom I've hung out at regularly is dead. Fiftychat, I stopped going to, due to feeling shame about some of the comments I've made there.

    The only place I've got left is Facebook. But since I have so few friends, it is moot.

    At least, I now have more time open to me to get back into my olden days of heavy gaming. :)

    Until I get a job. :(

    I'm sure I've made a huge fool of myself once again, having made this post. :rolleyes:

    I'll probably log in once in a while if I need modding help for Civ 4, but that's it.

    So....... There. :undecide:

    Good bye.

    Lower your expectations then. Don't try to be funny and wait for the right time. There are few things worse than someone trying to be funny and failing.

    Hey guys

    I haven't been posting much lately cause my life's been pretty damn hectic, but I will be away for a further 3 weeks, doing some hiking in Peru, feasting on guinea pigs, wooing local girls with incredibly broken spanish, etc.

    Be back on the 27th to a hopefully a bit more relaxed life! It's been too crazy lately

    Well, I thought not coming to CFC would result in more time being spent Civving.

    I was wrong.

    Oops. :lol:

    Might as well come back. :)

    And I'll try to listen to Arakhor's advice.... :mischief:

    So I'm gone from this Thursday until at least next week. I'm getting married on Saturday and then going off to my honeymoon, so internet browsing is pretty much off the radar until I get back.

    I've been coming here less and less since the forum split (and ive been really busy at home obviously), and I imagine that will continue into the future. At any rate, after Thursday, see yall in a while.
