Farewell - Too much drama
  • Goodbye. :oops: Thanks for being supportive of me but I'm tired of all this drama. Have fun and good luck! This community has changed since I first joined and I feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable at times.

    Thanks to rumel, brian, artform, darwin, equalityboy, and others for being supportive of everything I did. I will never forget.
  • I read the posts every day. I don't post much, but do get to know the guys that post often. I'm sorry to hear that the board isn't giving you the support you are so looking for. I for one have enjoyed your posts and videos you have left on Xtube. I wish you the best of luck in what ever you do.

    Good Luck in the Future.

    I am very sorry you feel any need to leave our little community. Your presence in this Forum has been a delightful energetic element that will be sorely missed. I have personally appreciated your support as well as the time, effort, care and thoughtfulness you have exhibited in your many posts in support and helpful advice to so many others. Your instructive, educational videos have demonstrated a courage of conviction few of us would even consider undertaking. I salute and admire such action and wish you only the best in your future endeavors.

    I don't know why you feel unwelcome and if there is something I can do to make you feel more comfortable here on the Forum I would like to hear it.

    Hopefully this is only a temporary exodus from us, you should know that you will be very welcome to return at any time. Please let us know how you think this Forum can be improved to better accommodate your interests and entice you to remain a contributing member.

    I have not been here all that long but I must say, I am so sorry to see your decision to pull out. You have been a great inspiration to me and I will miss your sound advice.
    The very best of luck to you and look after yourself
    Cheers from all of us.

    Thank you so much for your generosity, courage and energy. All the very best with your educational and employment projects now, and all the dimensions of your life as you progress. As you have offered and given much here in this community, you have enlightened us with your unique intelligence, talents and values, and you will surely do so again in the communities you will become part of from here onward.

    This community is changing and there will be more change to come no doubt. I hope that you will consider visits occasionally to see the ongoing changes and, when and if you feel comfortable again, join in again. I am certain you will always be most welcome. Thank you very much again. It has been a great pleasure and a real privilege getting to know you here.

    I just hope that in the same way that we return to our Aneroses you will return to this forum.

    So - take care - look after yourself - enjoy your journey and hopefully we see you again sooner rather than later.

    I'm sad to see such a valuable and active member of the forum leave. But I trust that you are doing what is right for you in the moment. Much like everyone else has said, you've contributed so much here, and we are all grateful for that. Please know that you are always welcome here. Unfortunately, change is inevitable. Even here in the Aneros forums. I can understand when the change is too much and you have to leave. I've experienced this many times myself. I hope that you feel comfortable enough to return at some point. Peace be with you.

    I came home Sunday afternoon and felt the pall that AW's departure had thrown across the group. I felt anger and then morned the loss. The grieving that I feel, and I'm sure some others are experiencing, will process itself out of our daily lives and we will move on.

    Groups are a bit like jig-saw puzzles. An arrival or departure tosses the group back into the form-norm-storm mode.

    AW demonstrated a whole bunch of backbone that we'll miss. His sword had a good edge and he was incisive. However, he was weak on 'tolerance-for-ambiguity' -- albeit a debatable attribute.

    I feel that AW's sig-line should live on, not as a 'memorial' to his time here but as a reminder to many who would whine, nag or regret. Or, as a caution to those who would flame out of either jealousy or anger.

    I'd like to see some direct, stalwart, assertive individual, younger than I, resurrect that sig-line, perhaps with attribution to AW; and, maybe with a promise to return it to him should he elect to rejoin the group in the future.

    Meanwhile AW, if you happen across this post... I wish you fair winds and following seas in your next and future adventures.

    Hang in there guy! Do well ! nb09, aka...

    this is a sad day for aneros...that is for sure, I really hope whoever has made you feel unwelcomed or has given articwolves any problem, could seriously disappear from this website and all the other ones wherever he posts, to those surpressors out there on this website reading, please stop reading and being a voyeur and then a judge, how typical, ariticwolves thank you for everything, I await your return.....

    You are welcome and we won't forget you and hope you will reconsider and help us make this forum a better place.

  • I'm not sure if I understand your reasons for this, but I respect it anyway. You're an inspiration, and I hope things work out (and more, that you return)

    Good luck to you, wherever you may need it.
    Let it go, already!!! Enough!!!

    Interesting. I find a few posters here on this forum obnoxious but that doesn't mean I'm going to leave, I just do my best to ignore them. The irony of AW's farewell post is that it is causing drama. All the same I enjoyed your videos and hope to see more.
  • Thanks to everyone for the encouragement to come back. I am very sorry for my decisions. I wish that this post be locked as I don't want this to cause anymore drama. I blame myself a lot for what led me into making this decision.

    This would not have happened if I didn't post X-Tube videos. So this is a word of caution to guys 18-29. Be prepared - Don't say you weren't warned. I have built up a name for myself as ArcticWolves and I just don't want the negative attention/drama that I got a lot of over the period of months my videos were posted. It was a great and very brave decision for me to try and show everything related to a Super-O. However, I received daily PM's and comments that finally started getting to me. Slowly, I started becoming more defensive and voicing my mind in certain posts. Some led me to apologies until I just plain blew up over little things.

    Some may ask, then how come I didn't just delete my videos and stick around? Of course, I have other reasons too but I would rather not be offensive and say what really was the ultimate reason. So there you have it. I left because I don't want to be affiliated anymore with the "bad reputation" I had as the user ArcticWolves. I hope that makes sense.

    I make a promise to you the legacy of "Never Give Up" and "To Be Upset Over What You DON'T Have Is To Waste What You DO Have" will be carried on. :wink:
