Wrong Planet now is very different from the forum it was when I joined, and in the past couple of years has become increasingly toxic.

The overall standard has reached a low now that I no longer wish to be part of.

Goodbye and good luck. I am moving on. If it ever recovers I may return some day, though it seems unlikely.

I would especially like to thank Raleigh for enhancing WP and my overall experience of it.

Thanks, B19.

I'll miss you terribly, but at the same time I totally understand how you feel, and would want you to be well.
Best wishes always.

:heart: Raleigh

I get really fed up with this place too at times. :?

Thank you for all the support you've given me over the years, it's been invaluable.

The saving of WP might be if we amend the rules solely in your case and give you posting rights under as many account names as your energy can extend to servicing. I won't forget you, and you will often be in my thoughts.

When I get well, I hope to visit Queensland again, my happy place, and who knows, life's conincidences and synchronicities can create surprising brief encounters with total strangers, so it pleases my soul to think this might happen, by one of these strange twists of fate, Raleigh and B19 might pause together in the street to admire a beguiling four legs that captures our passing attention, and exchange pleasantries, never knowing the deeper context of that encounter.

It :heart: makes me smile on a sad day.

Yes, I'd have to agree about the toxicity here. I'm listening to old Taylor Swift songs to take the edge off.

Good luck!

I will miss you. I haven't been here long enough to know what has gone. I have greatly appreciated your posts. :(

What's changed? What's more toxic than it used to be?

Have you nominated a successor? What if less moderation is not the solution?

Won’t say as this is haven
I wish you well b19. I wish we’d gotten along better this last year then in the past I’ll remember the better times.

I hope you and your cat get better and live long lives.

I will miss you if you go B19. I think some people here communicate in a mean-spirited or aggressive way. There's no need for it. It's a shame things have become more toxic. I really hope you'll stay or not go for long.
