Another member, a prominent one since 2011, messaged me and let me know that he's leaving the forum, that he wouldn't even be there to receive my response. Although I might be wrong, I get the feeling that others are taking a break too, or considering doing so. I considered putting someone on Ignore, not because his content is objectionable, but because I consider this person's content to be often based on theory not experience and something that I might feel compelled to criticize again, and I don't want to go down either of those paths - ignoring, or wasting time criticizing what I consider to be often less than useful content, because the fact of the matter is, that this person does occasionally come in with neutral or even useful content too. But the primary reason I'm taking a break is that it has quickly ramped up to where any post might be misunderstood and deleted, or sanctioned. It wasn't like that just as recently as a month ago, but what's going on right now with deleting posts and such is really a bit much. I'm not interested in walking on eggshells in a business forum. When the smoke blows over, I'll be back. I think taking a break is the most mature way to deal with all this. I don't expect to be gone that long, this is not meant to be a big deal. But I guess I felt it important enough to let the community know that someone else has already left, in his case, he says, for good.
