Farewell everyone

    I've had a ball on here over the years, but as I've said to a few folks via PM, it's time for me to leave SJ.com. I have several reasons, but I am not going to get into it all and post the usual hissy fit that comes with one of these farewell threads. What's done is done. Suffice to say, it's time for me to move on.

    Maybe at some point in the future, I'll be back with a new name—if I feel I have something to contribute again. But right now I need some distance from the board. The discussions about the changes around here, along with some things that people have said and done recently, have helped me realize it just isn't fun for me anymore. It's time to go.

    Before I go, I want to publicly apologize to anyone I have insulted, wittingly or unwittingly. I suspect you are all good people. It's just time for me to move on.

    Be good to each other.

    Good luck, Ragu. I'm sure you have your reasons. You know where to find me.

    FYI, I'm pretty sure you won't need a new handle if you come back. I've heard they can't be deleted.

    Appreciate all the advice you've given me the last couple years. When I get rich, I'll let you buy me dinner.

    Good luck, sir.

    If this post were a thousand words I still wouldn't fall for your April Fool's joke.

    Great, now 93 is going to bemoan the loss of another SJ titan.

    Oh, where are the other 84 thousand and 12 words to your post, Ragu?

    See ya 'round the block. If you're up this way, stop in and I'll buy you a Heady Topper, or a tall glass of cold milk.

    I am lost. I am going to be without advice on gold. I will be wandering around in a wilderness with out TBR. Just when I needed TBR most, as I was going to make financial moves, I will be lonely. Listless.

    Bill Bailey, TBR, won't you please come back home.

    Ragu has a European woman. He wins and has no need for our sorry asses.

    Timing is certainly suspect....

    Really seems the board is undergoing a round of quantitative easing right now.

    If you take the first letter of the first 18 words in Ragu's post, you get -- ah fuck, nothing.

    Yep, Ragu probably left in protest because Jeff is inflating page views.
