Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
Sorry you have left us, TIA.

But it's definitely understandable. Only thing that is not understandable is not being interested in the discussions above the line.   I find you can learn a lot above the line, and only rarely do the flame war fans intrude----usually those who are unwilling to live and let live on the subject of religion.

However there are virtually always worthwhile posts above the line. Just finding out about concert opportunities is worth a lot--I just found out we may get a chance to see Archie Fisher if we play our cards right.

Why should anybody waste time below the line--unless he or she really has an appetite for combat---or a bit of time to kill?    Nothing is ever resolved below the line

As you note, Songwrongheader and a few others can be counted on to start threads which have no point other than stirring the pot.    But, as in all threads, nobody has to respond.

If somebody favors you with gutter language, you can ask whether they also speak English--and let it go at that.

You will be sorely missed--one the few voices of reason below the line.

To be continued.
