I'm the Black Dog -
I can see how this forum has had significance in the lives of its users.
In some cases, this forum has even seen the end of lives.
Life and death. Real stuff happens here, in this digital space.
But change is inevitable. Change has already occurred. This forum is not what it once was. We all know it.
Perhaps it's time for me to change, too.
While I acknowledge this site's significance to others, perhaps its relevance to me, personally, is at an end.
I say "perhaps" when I already know the answer.
There's no struggle for me to imagine life without this site. It's not even really a habit anymore. I'm fine with going forward.
So fare thee well, submissionfighting.com, mma.tv, miixedmartialarts.com.
I'm just another user who moved on. But consider this a fond goodbye, and a recognition of things past.
That was an elequent goodbye brother
If you are all the way gone, give us one last present- tell us who you used to be.
I want a legit body count so that I can be The Asshole that corrects Wang! when he makes a video about us in 10 years.
Well, I guess that wasn't the real goodbye from me to this site. But this one is.
Who I used to be on here? I can't remember.
I've had two or three other screen names over the past 16 or 17 years, but I never really posted much with any of them.
This account is the most active I've ever been on this site. I've always been content to lurk.
I don't know why I made this account and started posting more.
I suppose I wanted to finally experience for myself what it was like to participate here - before I quit this forum for good.
And now I'm about to hit 4,000 posts. As good a benchmark as any to leave.
