    It is my humility and self-deprecating sense of humor that endears me to my inferiors. As a result, I post occasional comments like the one above, only to have it used maliciously against me. An ordinary person would protest, but I sit back content, appreciating how my comments have elevated the self worth of those who have so little.

    Whilst many that come here do use Twatter and farcebook to keep in touch with others, a lot of us come here to avoid the high quantity and quality of the stupidity found on those mostly brainless areas of the internet and avoid the multitude of ads, likes, followers, and general bullshit that so blocks up your thinking processes.

    Thanks to all of those who extended an invitation to this new forum. I am curious: who is planning on severing ties altogether with "the old forum"? I am adopting a provisional, "wait and see" attitude with regard to the new owners. It looks like some fairly strong posters (e.g. AndrewK and Nagase) are still hanging around PF. I am thinking that I will probably divide my time between these 2 forums for a while.

    Indeed I am still checking in at PF, but have the feeling that my days there are numbered.

    I was contacting 'theSoren' a bit to get a bit more of a picture of what is really the intention and direction of PF. It's sort of like driving by a former home to see what the new buyers have done with it.

    There are moments where it is difficult to 'let go', but it seems as if it is not really what it used to be, so the 'letting go' might well have been taken care of for me, as hat it was is not longer there to hold.

    I will post now and then there, but for the most part as to keep contact with folks who might well be interested in looking into our new option.

    This is not so much a territorial war, but more a realization that this is no longer really home.

    Anyway...

    in the words of the band that brought me back to philosophy, Maximo Park:
    "What happens when you lose everything?
    You just start again
    You start all over again!"




    For me... somewhat autobiographical, right down to the nose bleed out of the left nostril (exactly what happened when my head literally exploded a few years back).

    Meow!

    You're welcome.

    I for one am planning to abandon the old forum altogether, provided things here either remain as good as they are, or improve.

    This place is a breath of fresh air, is an improvement in some ways (both major and minor), and has grown on me.

    The other place has been poorly managed in some respects, since the takeover, and I've been in the line of fire. I don't trust Borat, et al.

    The best possible future for humanity, in my view, is one where we collectively agree to cease reproduction and live our lives for as long as we desire to. We would be abstaining from forcing people into existence while pursuing our dreams for as long as we can sustain them.

    I suppose it was only a matter of time.

    If we can achieve immortality (of a sort), I'm guessing we'll be able to give birth to people who don't suffer.
