Hi Es.

Been trying to think of a way to contact a few people. I actually spent about an hour writing a message giving an explanation and saying goodbye, but then when I hit post it just completely disappeared… so I ended up getting angry and deleting my account without telling anyone. Sorry about that.

I promise you had absolutely nothing to do with it.

As for why I left. I think I mentioned to you a while ago that I learned from experience when to step back from a board that seems to be going in an unpleasant direction, I've learned what signs to look out for. I'm afraid that's what I saw developing at the Café. It wasn't so much Mr. Milano's rampage, as what it revealed about certain people in the community. It confirmed a lot of stuff that I'd thought for a while now unfortunately.

The "does this board need more positivity" thread rubbed me the wrong way, but that's just a part of it really. Those signs that I know to look out for have been more and more clear. Cliques developing, singling out members, liking posts made against certain members, overlooking something with one member then zoning in on another member for the same thing etc. It's all very déjà vu for me. Last time this happened, I stayed and it became so toxic that it was a long time before I wanted to take part in any fan community again.

So this isn't about one comment or one thread. I haven't actually looked at anything on the board since I made my last post in the aforementioned thread… so if anyone came at me all guns blazing in response, I wouldn't know and even if I did, I've had too much conflict in my life to back down to any one person behind a computer screen. But then again, that's just it, I have enough drama in my life. I want to be able to love a show and say what I like about it or tear into it without high school style drama and finger pointing. I just can't be bothered with it.

I don't wish anyone ill; I don't wish for the forum to close down; I just don't think it's for me anymore. Despite some harsh words, this isn't an act of anger, I'm just at a stage in my life where I know when it's time to move on and that endings are sometimes necessary.

      When I was fourteen, I started getting interested in my older sister, Jenny, who was sixteen. She used to do a hula dance for me, and pull her top up and show me her tits. Jenny was a true... more
