Re: A minimum of respect please?
 
I used to believe in peace and love, but hey, this direct confrontational talk is really turning me on!

Come on people, lets's slug it out and go straight below the belt. Jab to the face and poke each others' eyes out.

Anyway, he said that she said he wasn't going to be my friend because you wouldn't carry my bag to school, so you can't play ball with us during break. And those baseball cards I traded you last week, I want them back because your mom wrote something bad about my pop on a forum and he knows someone who went to Stockholm once and that's where that guy lives who owns this place and he's ten feet tall, with three eyes and eats baby badgers for breakfast.

How difficult is it to understand this? But let's do everything else than answering this simple question.

I am glad a bunch of members actually answered, which shows that we may not suck that bad after all. I am glad they understood. Ignoring these posts and insisting on being confrontational looks pretty drama.

If the farewell was actually meant as one, and not "hey, this sucks, I am off to the better place that I will use one more last chance to promote" then it would certainly not be trashed, me thinks. Not sure, since I didn't trash it. I agree with those members who said that "farewell" was fishy. But why play with semantics and start questioning what disrespectful actually is.

I thought i did answer the question. To me, it wasnt a farewell, it was giving EF "management" (for want of a better term) the finger. There was no goodbye from either side
