Rob is more than welcome to do whatever he wishes, but his actions reek a bit of ego, in my opinion......


Agreed.

The message board didn't fall on its knees the last time he left and said that was it. It will carry on this time. No one member makes a forum - it isn't something to lose sleep over. There will always be a turnover, naturally, on any forum.

It's a shame he decided to leave without saying anything on here and chose to make an announcement elsewhere, but whatever. Not what I would do but his call.

There are a great number of wonderful people who visit this place, and I treasure them all. But it is a fact that for all of Rob's "soulfulness," when he decided to split, he told no one, and deleted his account.

Coming from someone whose words we appreciated for years and years, that seemed extremely contrary to his oft-stated views on how to treat this forum, and more than a little like saying "f-you" to this place.

You are welcome to present a different take on his exodus.


Perhaps he'd had enough of one of its members.


Oh, not to worry. He learned to tolerate you, as we all have. ;-)

This has taken on a life of its own.

In my view, Robbo pushed the destroy button here, he already had a membership at Two Much Monkey Business, that he didn't use anymore, knowing that some people here post there, it was just as easy to post on that forum, knowing what he wrote would be seen.

Call me Doctor Watsona!

LOL

I rarely post on FECC anymore, but I used to post daily for many years. I loved to discuss new releases with Rob, Doc, Cisco and all the others. Some say, well, it's only a messageboard, it doesn't mean anything in the real world. But I think it does. This IS the real world. Some of us have spent lots and lots of time here, and it's been a fun ride for sure. Why would it mean less than, say, having discussions with collegues at work? I'm sure that when I die about 40 years from now I will no doubt remember Rob and his ELVIS logo, just like I remember many childhood friends I haven't seen in a long, long time.

I think Rob deleted his account simply because he wanted to leave, wanted to spend his time on other things, but knew he wouldn't be able to resist the urge to keep a-postin' if his account was still active. This was problably the only solution. Personally I like the idea that the things you post on FECC will stay here for years and years, and be read by yourself and others every once in a while. It would be a sorry state of affairs if I got nostalgic and wanted to re-read the posts we all made about let's say "Fly T-R-O-U-B-L-E!", only to find out that some members had deleted all their posts...

So what happens when you push that button? Do you get a chance to change your mind, is there an "Are you sure you want to delete your account?" message comes up, or is it "Boooooom!" and everything disappears? Seems a bit final to me, what happens if you hit it by mistake?

No, it isn't.

And it shows how deliberate one must be to do it.
