    Snowman, I've known you for a long time now and consider you a friend.
    You are a complicated person, but there is no negative intent in saying that. I know you have reasons for doing what you do the way you do it, and thats cool with me.
    I'll miss you and the help and information you provide. Be well my friend, have a Happy ThanksGiving and maybe come back and say Merry Christmas.http://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/q/depresse.gif

    Snowman......

    i don't know what to say.....

    maybe our missing you and worrying if you were alright, might have brought you back a wee bit sooner than when you were ready to come back......and a li'l more rest right now is what you are needing most to get better and return stronger.....your health always comes first to us...

    i will miss you very much my sweet friend... :'(

    take good care of you, and be safe Snowman

    snowman,

    First of all, I'm very sorry to see you leave - I sincerely do hope it's merely for the time being!

    As for:



    We have been discussing your request within our team - depending that, the thread has been parked on one of our private forums.

    Two aspects have been taken into account in our discussion:

    a) has anything been posted in the thread that does violate our TOS. We did find no such thing.

    b) Although we are unaware as of why you want the thread being removed/deleted, it's a matter of principals. As soon as a thread has been started, and answers have been posted, a thread doesn't "belong" to anyone in specific anymore. This goes for the one who started the thread as well. Merely on very rare ocassions (TOS violation etc), we do consider to make an exception to this rule.

    Thus, without intending to offend you! - the thread will be put up again.

    That being said: we firmly believe in "playing nice" - and this goes for all threads an posts. Contributors should be aware we will not tollerate insults, flaming etc. In case these do happen, our team will jump on it right away. We are not in the habit of banning; offenders will notice we do alter such posts, will be asked to withold from such posts, and warned in case this does not help.

    regards.

    paul

    Dear Snowman,

    I just saw you were on the board, and I immediately wrote you an IM to tell you how happy I was to see you again.

    And now I just read your last posting.

    I feel so sad now, I don't know what to say, I really don't.

    It's your decision, of course.

    I wished there was a way to sort things out.
    I know, you almost never use email. But maybe, still, there could a way to solve things in private. If you like, email Paul, me or any other mod/admin, anytime!!!

    I didn't want this to happen...

    Good luck, Snowy. All my best wishes to you!!!

    Warm regards, Jan.

    This issue has been settled, and is done and over with. We have expressed our view in this matter - no offense, but it's not open for (new) discussion.

    Paul, if I may please briefly comment



    At the very beginning of this thread it was clearly stated that I did not wish to discuss this matter...an that still is applicable. However, some clarification on my part may be in order.
    Folks, behind each monitor is a real person with a real life. We meet here...we share here, and grown to care for each other here.
    Please understand that my reason for giving up my membership at this forum is a highly personal matter.
    Contrary to belief those reasons were in no way related to the thread "cookie alert" nor any actions thereafter. During my years of association with Paul I have always held him in high esteem......an still do......the same applies to all admistrators of this forum..its moderators..members and guests. It appears that even Paul mis-understood perhaps somewhat.....so may I now point out that my departure notice was given prior to any actions afterwards.........I am not nor ever was offended by Paul nor any admistrator of this forum. Nor did I at anytime state that I would not return or consider registering in the future. There is NO ax to grind.......there is NO issue......
    Everyone knows that I was seriously ill for most an entire year.......an that has taken a very toll on me....moreso than even I care to admit. There are resposibilities that I must attend to immediately that require my full time. For the record...I am not suppose to even have an internet connection....a mistake has caused the provider to not cancel the connection as was requested by me. Folks, I have not only cancelled my membership here but also cancelled all connection. Surely a clear sign that very pressing matters need my full time.

    Hopefully this will shed light on this matter.

    Snowman


    ** Paul, perhaps I should have offered this comment sooner.......frankly its been a rather difficult time in my private matters.....alot on my mind....
