Its seems a few of you think my communications on here on are nothing less than drivel ( i happen to see a lot of that from many other areas, but I chose not to criticise or attack others) . As a result I just thought I'd take a break from the forum, just to make you happier. Hope your experiences on UKC are ever richer and enjoyable without my presence.

I am not posting on here to take 'shit' from any you.

In reply to The Ice Doctor: ergo the personal email to take it off forum?

To be honest your Topi?ov, starting points are usually too vague In nature (if not badly informed) to provoke the discussions you might want- you can take that as constructive criticism if you want

I like your posts. Though I don't view the world as you do, ukc would be blander/poorer without your input.

Edit: you got a like for the posts, not the taking a break bit.

I think it's a shame you are going. You've brought a lot of interesting stuff to the forum.

It might be true that the more 'shit' you are receiving could be indicative both of the foresight and prescience of your topics, tainted by the intolerance and bigotry from the usual suspects on here, who think ad hominem is a legitimate form of refutation.

I myself don't post here very often for those reasons, plus the realisation that there is a chronic inability in many to 'debate' without resorting to angry personal attacks.

I wish you well.

I sometimes found your posts hard to understand but you were never nasty or bullying to people which is far more important in my opinion.

Enjoy whatever you do instead but as far as I'm concerned you're welcome back anytime.

Using social media to announce your departure from social media.. Seems a little lame and sulky. Just my opinion of course.

If people don't want to read inane drivel, what the f*ck are they doing on the internet? As others have said, I object to people who are unpleasant (and at worst bullying), not to those who seem like decent people...

Too bad, I liked to see your posts, you did raise some interesting points even though I did not always agree,

Could never understand why you would want to post on a primerally a climbing forum about your political views, it's not just you the other week someone was selling a chrome bin on UKC climbing seems to have taken a back seat to basically shite.

Off Belay- general non-climbing discussion.

... that is fairly clear, isn't it?

I have a three year old daughter and this feels a little bottom lip out to me.

You are referencing a quote from your post attempting to make a £100 sale on library of books which consisted of just 8 listed titles. The feedback might have felt harsh from your perspective but it seemed well intentioned to help you elicit the sale you wanted.

Enjoy your break, and i hope you come back. UKC is a great community and has been a wonderful resource of all manner of issues in the past for me.

I didn't think it would be long before someone who's more interested in being in the top 40 posters rather than Climbing replied.

.... says someone who's replied to one of icedocter's political posts stating his political views.

Are you confused or just a hypocrite?

One of the reasons I like this forum is that I learn new stuff, like the phrase ad hominem. A technique employed by asshats when they can't come up with a good argument.

That's a shame like.
I hope someone buys your books.

Also, cheer up. It's only the internet. Go outside!

I'm sorry, but I'm probably one of those here who were seen as "bullying" you.

I found your repetitive and monotonous threads slightly daft and rather obsessive, and responded to them as just that.

I hope you enjoy your break, and come back refreshed.
