Peter’s farewell post


Recommended Posts

I was sad to see Steven go and am sad to see Peter go. But from what I read back then, I fully understand why Steven was asked to stop posting about new products. He obviously had inside knowing that was not meant to be shared. I believe, but could be wrong, that he is still a member, albeit silent now.

It would be extremely difficult for him to participate in discussions here without revealing his identity. We all know his habits, his family, his dog and even his thumb nails😉

  1. General: Farewell posts have the strong tendency to start a downward spiral and fights. Of course it's absolutely OK to leave the forum. And I'm always open to discuss how I run the forum. But you can't have both: Starting a discussion with complaints about moderation while stopping the discussion by leaving the forum. This almost always derails in general „everything used to be better“ discussions. Nothing good comes from such topics. Sometimes even the gone member registers again and post „some last things I wanted to say…“. Long story short: If you want to leave the forum, send a short message to me. Please tell me the reasons why you want to leave – I'm honestly interested. But I don't tolerate this kind of public grievances without an option for a discussion.

What happens if a member simply changes his interests?  Can he post that he sold all his Leica gear and went back to a DSLR system (no bashing of any kind) and he won't be participating on the LUF?  Would such a post still be deleted?

Like this thread? No problem at all I guess. I don't think this user has any plans to leave the forum though.

I don't know but it would sound kind of whiny and a 'notice me' posting. There is no reason not to continue contributing to LUF even if you'd defected to Holga, maybe some insights in the new system would be helpful in a general way. But it also supposes everybody gets lobotomised when jumping ship and forgets everything useful they ever knew about Leica cameras. These 'I'm going' posts are the dramatic exits that every little kid has rehearsed in their minds and then been laughed at upon delivery, only sometimes it has to wait for later in life..
