This is one of the funniest threads I read here in weeks... and since Rob left. :cry:

Heck, this IS life - I wouldn't even know how to get through my (work-)day without FECC! :lol: ::rocks

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?



You will join the space time continuum.



And you'll end up in the land of the apes forever and ever. :lol: :lol: :lol: :smt005 :smt003

Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape! :)



This one is allowed. :D

Damn right it is!

Sure, FECC is not important in the grand scheme of things, but if use KHoot's logic then neither is movies, TV series, hockey games or music. Mankind doesn't need those things either, if you ask KHoots, who seems to focus on survival only. He eats, he breathes, he sleeps. Nothing else matters. Entertainment, wether it's music or movies, sports or messageboards, has no meaning... Unfortunately for him, he wasted over 10 years and 7100 posts on FECC before he came to this conclusion. Imagine his regrets!! :D

Rob, a bright light on this forum.
But just closing his profile without a goodbye, instead of being inactive for a while sounds like he didn't care afterall.

Well, it's a free world.

Damn it!

Since the references are from 1968's "Planet of the Apes," what is the Ron Ely connection?

As is in fun, and due to that fact, fun can be delineated from, the terminology being, "Land of the Apes", the show, "Planet of the Apes" is really off to me, with "Ape man" being acceptable, which is Tarzan :D Ron Ely being the best Tarzan to my tastes. See? It gets there, lol :D

Indeed, it is.

I sense a general unease in the forum since this happened. You never know: maybe something unpleasant happened in his world, and he couldn't be his entertaining self, so he pushed the button.

I still hope he comes back if he feels like it, and that his ungainly exit will be forgiven. He has been awfully generous, in more ways than one.

This is after much thought. You just never know what it's like on the other side of the screen.

You're just being dramatic. I'm sure my theory is correct: he wanted to leave, because he doesn't enjoy this place anymore, feels there are better things to do in life, and he knew the ONLY way to move on was to delete his account, otherwise he'd be tempted to post every once in a while and before he knew it he'd be stuck here for hours on end. He probably has a computer in his Elvis room. If he still had an active FECC acount, there is no chance he'd be strong enough to keep away from this place. It would be like having a recovering alcoholic locked up in a bar.

I am 100 % sure he's reading this by the way... Hi Rob!

I fully agree, Rob made no secret of the fact that he would leave if he found the message board not to be entertaining anymore, As he said in his message that was the case and combined with work/family commitments he was true to his word and left, If he had posted a notice of intent to leave he would most likely have been accused of making a big deal of it and told that if he wanted to leave then he should just do so, He left with no drama or fuss and I admire him for that and wish him well in his family and work life.

P.S I don't believe for one second he will be reading this.

:smt006 HI ROB :wtf: did you leave like that for ? You old barsteward :twisted: :P

Alan.

You're exactly right. I felt the same.

In fact, when I noticed the abrupt change in his account, without any notice, I contacted admin to see if something bad had occurred.

Okay. You think I meant that this message board is THE real world, and that our families and all those other things we do in life is irrelevant in comparison. Obviously that would have been pretty dramatic. But I was just saying that this messageboard, just like the rest of the Internet, is a part of the real world. It's not a fantasy land created by little green men. While I have no evidence to support my case, I'm pretty sure that Rob, for example, is a real person and that what he wrote here was real.
