After 4 years of being a memeber of this community I was shocked earlier in the year when It was revealed to me privately that my presence here was not wanted. I was warned that several members were trying to find a way to get me banned because they disliked my posts or felt I was not the kind of person they wanted in the community. I was encouraged to ignore these individuals and stay, but I find this difficult to do with some of the snide comments thrown my way in non P&C areas. Bottom line is I no longer enjoy posting or reading threads here.
I am not looking for sympathy nor do I really care what a few think. However I would like to encourage the community to examine for a moment how a few individuals who believe their beliefs or desires are more important than others are dominating these boards. I came here because I wanted a place to have adult conversation on gaming topics. Yet what I am finding this year is that a small few are making that impossible. In no way has this behavior been directed to me by the owners of the board or the admins. These comments and PM's were orginated by members of the group.
Its one thing to dislike me or my beliefs, I respect that. Its quite another thing to purposly try to run off those that disagree with you. I think it shows a lack of maturity and an unwillingness to respect others rights and feelings.
