No big speech, I just don't feel like I belong here anymore......
I had come to grips with the fact that there will always be OT talk on this board. That's not so bad, but when it appears that certain agendas, political crap, and bashing of certain groups of people is going to continue, then I think it's time for me to just go.
To me this is a community, but it is now a community that I don't feel comfortable in. Because I "chose" to participate in this community, I felt compelled to counter bashing and OT subjects that are agenda based, have nothing to do with Jeeps, and never seem to go away. I can't just ignore this stuff, especially the bashing of other people or groups of people. That would be against who I am as a person. I believe if someone is needlessly slandering a person or group of people, that you stand up and speak up for those people, regardless if you have any connection to them or not (I'm not gay, a democrat, black American living in a poor neighbourhood etc. etc).
I've realised now that countering all this stuff is just a waste of my time. There are other Jeep boards that are more focused on Jeeps, that I can participate in. I might come back from time to time to ask questions, but I will not be hanging out here anymore because I don't feel comfortable amongst some of the goings on here. This is "the best" Jeep tech board, for Jeep info, but the worst for the other stuff.
Well, that was almost a big speach.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
It's been an interesting 3 years or so on this board, I wish you all the best in the future!
