No, not quite yet. I've always liked this site. Maybe once the moderation is back to normal, we will once again enjoy Blurtit. If it doesn't get any better, there will probably be a mass migration to another site.

I'm going to hang in as long as possible. I've enjoyed being here. Unfortunately the administrative withdrawal from the site and the anonymous moderation -- when there is any moderation at all -- are going to force mass migration. When my friends go, I will go also. I will regret leaving but the site has already lost it's personality; when it loses its personalities as well, I'll be out of here.

I've even considered *shudder*I having another look at answerMug, in spite of the political hatred by a handful of members.

Aside from the PET questions, I was having problems with my computer locking up when I was on there. Since I have stayed away I haven't had an issue.

I've poked my nose in a few times since Jaimie invited me back but, in spite of assurances, it doesn't look any better. To go back I'll have to be willing to filter out the garbage. If that's where everybody goes from here I'll have to do that.

It has definitely been challenging to be on this site recently, due to the prolific spam, deleted birthday message and other inactivity by the Anonymous Mods.

No, I dont give up that easily.

Why let some shameless spammers and nameless amateurs calling themselves "moderators" run us off of here?

I like it here, I'm going to stay awhile, maybe I'll get so un-PC it'll force the mods out from under their rock.  Why do you think I call myself Toxic Hairball?

Lang may yer lum reek, Toxic. :)

Them's fightin' words and they may be just what we need. I don't feel like giving up without a struggle, either.

I've been playing nice up until now, Didge. I found a home of sorts here, I wont be chased away by trolls who have never tasted wrath like mine.

Generally speaking I prefer to stay in a house indefinitely rather than move every year.

I have checked elsewhere, but there are still a lot of interesting people on here; and the "quality" ( read as what interests me) of the questions has always fluctuated over time. 

There is more chafe than there was, but the wheat has has remained easy enough to find.

I remain optomistic.

I hate change as well. I don't want another mass loss like Ask.com. We are all like a family! I mean on Ask I had some buddies who literally went through my pregnancy with me (I was high risk) start to finish and rejoiced with me when Jr was born as if we had known each other for a lifetime. They have "watched" Jr grow these last two and a half years. I now have a new virtual nephew from one who became a great aunt and I get pictures more then my own BLOOD! Same with my daughters engagement. Blurtit knows and yet I haven't even bothered to tell my blood line. It's astonishing the relationships and attachments we get along the way even though it's online. Unlike Facebook this is not a "popularity" contest! This is a bunch of people who became family. It is sad that the owners of the site would do this. But like I said, I will follow the herd. Please don't leave me behind my friend. ☺

True.

Christ always determined the quality of relationships.

Ever since I read "The Jesus Myth" by Fr. Andres Greely (Catholic priest and sociologist by trade) about 40+ years ago, I have tried to do the same.

----One of the best approaches to life I've every come across.

One of the ways that I can continue some of the discussions about religion "ad infinitum."

I hate change but I will follow the herd. However I do always try to find SOMETHING good or positive about a negative situation..... I am happy the mods here (unlike Ask.com) have never said anything about us not being able to exchange emails. I am honored for all the emails I have collected so far. ☺

I will stay. If there is a mass migration, I will go to the site and create an account, but I'll try to stick around unless it becomes a desolate wasteland of nothing but spam here.
