I just wanted to let all the decent people here know that I am no longer going to be part of any discussions in the Whipping Post. I don't appreciate personal attacks and it is not worth it so goodbye. The rest of you can carry on as you see fit.

Imagine that. I made the decision yesterday to go back where I started on here, trading music.
Seems like a much happier group, and a much better way to spend my energy.

Doug, Why not take the weekend and reconsider before making a decision. Like someone said you provide balance here. I know things get personal sometimes but donít let one or two people run you off.

I don't believe I've met anyone with a thinner skin or who can take things so personally...especially a lawyer. I'm always being accused of 'attacking' him when the discussion gets heated.....which, by the way, I've never done deliberately. Oh well....he will be missed.

OK, this might be considered a 'dumb' question..but what exactly is the Whipping Post? What makes it different from here? Serious question. Been too shy to ask, but now seems as good a time as any for someexpansion of my knowledge base.

Well, I hope you come back Doug. I always like to read your take on things whether I agree with them or not. I also get tired of all the personal attacks as well and try not to get involved with them. I think people here should enjoy reading opinions that are different than their own - I do. With the exception of maybe 3 or 4 posters, I find the differences of opinions here is what makes this place interesting, but unless what someone posts is actually offensive (racist, homophobic, etc), then there is no reason for personal attacks.

Like I've said before, good-bye posts crack me up. Just don't post anymore. No need for the drama. Also, this is The Whipping Post. If you dish it, ya got take it.

The Whipping Post section to me is a place where people can explore their own ideas and thoughts on a wide variety of topics, mostly pertaining to politics and current events. I do not believe it is a place where people come because they want to fight and argue. The conflict is a natural byproduct of the process. I think the Whipping Post is filled with people who are eager to learn about the world and life in general, and use the art of debate to gain the knowledge they seek. I bet it's even therapeutic for a lot of folks to come here and be able to say what's really on their mind anonymously without the consequences of expressing those feelings in real life. Sites like this provide an outlet for open and honest communication, and that will always generate conflict unfortunately, but it's human nature. I will admit that it can bring out the ugliest in people, but I still think it's a good place to visit and engage in these debates, because it can just as easily change things for the better.

Doug,

Seriously, I hope you will reconsider. I agree with you, personal attacks are ridiculous and not warranted in a discussion. They have nothing to do with the subject being debated. You have gone to great lengths explaining your philosophical and political positions as you see it. I personally don't have a problem with your neocon slant/position etc.. I have enjoyed the few debates that we have had. Like I said earlier I hope you'll reconsider and stick around.

I can't leave,
Cause I'm tied to the Whipping Post and Oh Lord I Feel Like I'm Dying.

Sorry, just trying to lighten the mood

Pretty much describes life in general. Plus if you don't post a good bye then you leave yourself and out if you want to post again. Always best to leave your options open. It is only the internet so just take a deep breath or a break if needed.

I've said the same thing in the past, but, eventually, I always return. I just do more reading than posting now. When it starts getting goofy around here, I go back to AG. Hang in there, Doug.

Hope you reconsider. As others have stated, balance is a good thing, and in my opinion you help provice it here. I think most long time posters take a break from time to time, just to get things back into perspective. It's only the internet.

Must be a case of mistaken identity. I don't know you couldn't care less about your opinion. I certainly won't partake in a pity party for a whiner.

Then why did you post something? As the saying goes if you got nothing nice to say....

Sorry that you're going Doug. I know we've "bumped head" a few time over here on the WP over this and that, but nevertheless I consider you a "good guy" and a friend. My suggestion, take a little time out from the WP, and then ease back on over here when the time is right. You and yours take care,
Fred B.
