This is my goodbye thread... →
[More:]No drama, but I'm afraid I really mean it this time. I've been
thoroughly enjoying waayyyy too much time online, lately, and all of my attempts to self-regulate have failed miserably. Ya'll are just too wonderful to ignore that easily. That's why, sometime tomorrow, I'm going to send emails to the (absolutely terrific) admins here, and on MetaFilter, asking them to lock my accounts.
To further motivate me to really walk away this time, I've decided to out myself (somewhat) by naming all of my sockpuppets. On MetaFilter, I am also known as:
Man O' Straw
the shitty Baldwin
Dr. Tarr and Professor Feather
jagged glass dildo
Pot and Kettle.
For those who were perhaps offended by some of P&K's shenanigans, I apologize. They were never meant as personal attacks, but as meta commentaries on the dynamics of certain threads, themselves. To the extent that I sometimes failed to make that clear, well, as I said, I'm sorry. I guess, ultimately, I'm just another attention whore on the internet.
Here, on MetaChat, I had no sockpuppets. But I was sometimes known as "Randall." Hi. Sorry I couldn't get around to all of you before pulling the plug (actually, I think there's one more giftie still in the queue for Taz, if they ever get around to delivering it - and yeah, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell
was from me). I would have loved to have got you all something luscious and special, as I think the world of you all. But I really, really
need to refocus myself into more personally productive habits. So much to do, so few gray cells left.
So - thank you all. You're very special bunnies!
