Don't be dramatic about being a nerd, you dont become nerd by using the computer, you use the computer because you are one  ;)

From the Rules of another forum I frequent (And Necro's exempt because it was his friend and not him that announced that he was intending to leave forever.)
Quote
Rule 6: If you decide to publicly proclaim that you are leaving this board forever, please be sure you really mean it, because you won't be welcomed back.

Sometimes when someone announces it on their board, the members often say "I hope you don't Rule 6 yourself" meaning they hope they don't return.

So yeah. I follow that rule. So if I'm gone for a long time, I'm off to find my inner game philosophizer and will come back in a week to a month or so.

Edit: Also, I was thinking that maybe it's just him trying to get attention, which is why people usually rule 6 themselves, they're secretly reading the board hoping to get attention, and when they get enough "Come back, we'll miss you too much" they appear and go "Well, maybe I'll stay, since all of you care so much"

(Like I said before, Necro is exempt because he set specific limitations, he only told his closest friend, who then tried to get other people to sign a "Please Return" I don't think Necro was secretly reading it. I bet he was off ranting about the people that drove him nuts, or doing something else entirely)

No, he was complaining about it a few weeks before.  And he did make a lengthy post on why he was leaving. Axelgear's thread came a few days later. But I don't think you were frequenting everything else then, so you're forgiven.

I'd rather you didn't leave 7...unless you had to for personal reasons.

What? Someone tell me, what is this "social life". Does it taste good on bread?

Anyway, bye. I'm sure I'll miss you.... sometime...

You should all be ashamed. Geekiness is there to be fought.
Fight it!
