...three days ago I weakened and in a fit of lonliness (WHERE IS EVERYBODY?) I registered under an alias at ER. I made about 3 posts. Today I sent a request to be deleted...

Postal traffic here is necessarily going to be slow until the board is re-established.

No new members are going to be attracted to a board without content.

No content = No board = No new members.

Hence the restoration work.

Several of us are at both places. Why not you too?

Over there i mostly leave the talking to others. Here I know that someone will listen to me and at least respond.

I don't think you should feel some sort of disloyalty to ATU if you are also a member of ER.

Just my opinion...

I'm still a member there and posted a couple of times a few weeks back.

Why do people ask for the accounts to be deleted?

I'm a member there but I don't post. I like to keep the account in order to keep in contact with some members there who are not on ATU.

I also like the intimacy of this site and most of our members.

...I used the name Shipwreck pirat and posted a poem in the poetry thread. I had a couple of nice responses.
I didn't feel too disloyal about posting there...I've been curious about the forum...but it's too big, that forum, for me.

I asked to be deleted because I was tying myself in knots jumping between forums...I'm not a good multi-tasker. No and I'm not a big fan of Bob, either, and so I felt hypocritical...and all those Bob avatars did my head in.

I once lived with a musician who was hugely influenced by Bob and after being bombarded with his songs I kinda got into the swing of him...but I was trying too hard to like him so my own singer would like me...never a good idea.

I think also I was hoping to encounter fireworks...I am still curious about why so many of the posters that I respect here have been banned there...

...it was panic...
I'm a little cyber-suspicious and (please don't laugh) have a notion that everything with my email address that can access me via a forum can somehow track my computer and kill it pale

I miss them all as every one contributes something and the broader the base of members is , the better the forum should be.

Trademark pious platitude.

Have you learned nothing from the shipwreck of ATU1?

No board can function with vindictive trolls and lunatics.

That's why message boards have Moderators. Heaven forfend that your devious scheming to become a Moderator here ever comes to anything, but in the unlikely event that it ever does what do you suppose your function might be?

Thankyou for your observations and comments.I have never had any devious scheme to be a moderator . If you are refferring to the post I made when Nash said she was going to resign as moderator . In that post I firstly suggested 2 other people , then said if no one else was prepared to do it I would be prepared to . By the time I returned 4 hours later Nash had changed her mind , and that should have been the end of the story . But no peope debated it for over 2 weeks and had polls etc and I was beginning to wonder if I was the devil incarnate.
I have no doubt I would be very little different to most moderators of forums you find on the internet.

A really great person knows how to tolerate and suffer fools etc , any one can get on well with those who are like them , howeever it is how you deal with people whom you may not be able to stand which really determines the true leaders and great people.

If you say so, fine.

Just as well, then, that I'm neither a really great person nor a true leader.

Every time I've been asked to Moderate here I've declined.

Well that is a real pity as with your wide knowledge and appreciation of many cultural topics you would be an ideal moderator .
Next time you are asked give it real consideration .
And I think you underestimate your own abilities .
You are one of the natural leaders of this site.
