I am truly sorry to hear about your leaving the Forum.

I hope that you receive my message and know that you are wished all the very best healthwise, professionally and personally.

Thanks for all your support and contributions on my threads.

Kindest regards.

Laurie: Why do some members leave a forum ?

Buon Giorno, Good Morning Laurie,

Why do some members leave a forum ?

I am sure there are multiple reasons why someone decides to depart from freelance Blogging hobby ... or anyother chosen work ... or relationship ...

However, my experience with Blissful, was just exemplary as far as the facts of politeness, contribution & feedback and multi cultural protocol.

I have to say from my own experiences on D.C., that there must have been a catalyst issue ... Perhaps, with an aggressive member which we call Hazing Online here and it is punishable in the European Union and especially in Spain, as they had passed this law back in 2010 due to the large amount of women being hazed and harassed by aggressive males on line.

Perhaps, there is alot we do not know.

I had read the thread MIA last night, and it is not completely indicative of this, however, it does reveal an emotionally poor period for Blissful, in the way in which she worded or tried to word, her emotions.

I am relatively a newcomer ( joined January 2012 ) and thus, my dealings with her, have always been pleasant and she was very complimentary of my threads and posts.

Sorry to hear the news.

I wish her the very best.

Kind regards.
Ciao, Margi.

Margi--
discusscooking.com is NOT a blog hosting site. You may notice that people have their blog URL listed in their signature lines. The forum is a discussion group where people post questions about food, share recipes, etc.

If you wish to start a blog where you can write about your recipes, etc., there are a number of free blog-writing tools and posting options. Folks with blogs may also be more than happy to help you set up your own blog independent of this forum.

I am taking the computer and might pop in a bit this coming week, but I didn't want to have anyone worry when I drop off for a bit. I'm on holiday in the mountains and will be busy doing things like whitewater rafting, swimming, water sliding, tennis, golf, lazing pool side, sleeping late. All the usual stuff. Back sometime on the 17th but will have guests from out of town so might be back online later.

NICE!! Enjoy! Wish I could join you! Have a really super time and don't worry, we'll somehow figure out how to survive without you in the meantime.

Thanks all! And now, enough procrastination. Costco opens in an hour and I need to get moving!
