Hello buddies! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I'm just ducking in and out (haven't recanted - I was after Annacia but haven't caught the minx yet). ;)

But! Having stuck my nose into the forum for less than a minute, I couldn't help but notice that 24 hours without me and the whole place falls to bits! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

Seriously - it's tough to watch a popular and long-standing member become hostile and eventually downright malicious towards someone a lot of us have come to love. And I'm not talking about tlr, people. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/pillow.gif

Draco will be missed, no doubt about it. But bear in mind that the mods and admins are here to protect every member of this community from the sort of b*tchy back-stabbing that has been flying around here all too much lately. :( It's not always a pleasant job, but tlr, Elen and the mods do the best they can - and that's more than good enough for me. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Hi Jiao http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

I'm trying to think of something good to say here, but it's just not coming to me. I recapitulate with what Jiao said, but there's more I want to add...if I can just think of it. (so much for being articulated http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif )

See Jiao, you should never leave http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I quite agree with you on principle, Jiao, but I have no idea what b*tchy backstabbing you're talking about. I haven't seen any of it. :confused:

No thanks required. This is the best online forum around, no contest. And it's due as much to your efforts (and those of Elen and our lovely mods) as it is to the great members we have here. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

This is a place for kicking back and enjoying the company of friends; private grievances should stay that way - private. There just isn't any place here for petty spite, and long may it stay that way. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love1.gif

Hiya Jiao. Nice to see you again http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I can completely understand your comments and thank you. It's too pity when some people can see the surface and have no idea what is going on into the bed.

Let's keep this thread clean though, without accusing anyone for anything.

Well, I'm all happy now anyway - I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Celli or Elen last night. ;)

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif Guys! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I know that I myself have been the center of many disputes on other forums. (shocking! ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ) However, sometimes things escalate so much that you feel it can no longer stay private. The last forum I left, I finally left because I could no longer hold my tongue over how rude many of the other members were acting, and the terrible spam crisis there. Maybe it's the heat of the moment, but you feel that what you are doing is the right thing, and sometimes there is no other choice.

Hmm come to think of it, the only dispute i've partaken in was when i first came here, never found myself in the middle of one since then http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Sometimes you just have to let people sit and soak in their own stupidity. I'd say to the people who feel the need to argue is that the best thing to do is leave quietly and don't come back.

Nice to see you Jiao. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Well I have no idea what has gone off, but whatever it was I'm sure the mods took the best course of action. This is one of the nicest online communities imo and nothing and noone should spoil that. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I don't know what all is going on either, I have noticed here and there innapropriate posts by a few people towards other forum memebers. Maybe we could open a topic called: Who's your TR Forum Enemy? :D (Ha-ha)
Sorry, that was uncalled for. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif It was only a joke. :(

You may delete this if you want. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif
I hope this didn't make anyone too mad. :(

Yes, I'm still leaving... ( What? I am, too! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif )

Despite the clammy hands, chocolate cravings and uncontrollable twitchings of withdrawal, I absolutely must go - this place is like a vortex of lurve! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif Once you're addicted, it's tougher than a turkey neck to break. :rolleyes:
