Not sure if many of you will know who I am, but after many years here I am leaving.
I might still hover around and have a nosey (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) But won't be posting.
You're the nicest bunch of people (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) But due to a few, I no longer have any freedom of speech and everything I say can be turned into a personal attack, accusing me of being this that and the other, 'this could destroy your future career' etc.etc. It really saddens me.
So I think my time here is over (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I'm no-where near thick skinned enough for this, I give up! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/peace2.gif)
Thanks for all the help and advice i've been given over the years - from before I'd ever touched a violin to now being in music college, I really wonder if I'd even be here without the inspriation and help from everyone here! So thanks!
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/thanks.gif) Good luck with all your music making! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/party1.gif)

I am sorry too - I think it would be a loss to the forums and I hope you will reconsider.
I don't see any reason for you to go. I really don't. Hope you will reconsider.
My advice in that case, exercised on here many times: Breathe deeply, walk away from it, take a few days off...
A lot of us have been on the receiving end of hurtful remarks/criticisms and have taken 'time off' from the forums as a result - but then have poked our noses above the parapet and starting posting again.
I really hope you will do the same...
