    Default I Wish For Sanity In These Threads

    If mutual denigration is the specific intent, why don't people just exchange telephone numbers or skype IDs?
    That would surely speed up the flow of abuse.

    In this sort of you-me-you-me-who, it's not much fun being a voyeur

    My solution: stay out the "tournaments" forum.

    I get into enough trouble for techniques.

    personally i think it is ok to have disagreement, afterall, having differing opinions is how we evolve to be better human beings. however, the key point is to discuss and learn about what each other have to say in a civilized and polite manner.

    They were civilised enough in that thread. However, it was starting to get boring with the constant handbags by the same people that I thought it was right for kwun to lock it.

    I basically quit posting on BC because there was too much drama (too much bickering going on that was not warranted). I still answer PMs if I receive them but I rarely read and post anymore because unfortunately for me, it's become fruitless.

    It's too bad because I think I still have some things to offer BC. For instance, I was going to do a few things:

    1) For Christmas, I was going to raffle off 10 or so Chao Pai rackets for free.

    2) Sponsor a tournament (still may do this)

    3) Redo a complete stringing video, slowly, step-by-step with verbal and graphical instructions.

    4) A bi-weekly video of Halim Haryanto, interview him, his training tips on improving your game, how he acquires his amazing wrist power, strategy, etc...

    5) Update all the reviews.

    Man, just typing all this was fun but as of now, not going to do any of it. This panda is just going to hibernate over the winter. Wait, do panda's hibernate at all?

    Of course, you do know what you're doing but, Sir Dink, this sounds like too drastic a decision... especially when it isn't going to make any of the bickering go away

    Your silence is also bad news for many of us

    It'd still be a great Christmas (for BC) if you'd go ahead with 3, 4 and 5.
    (I never liked Chao Pai racquets anyway and I'm too old to compete )

    By the way, pandas don't hibernate
    Neither should this one

    Sir Dink does have a point. I did the same thing on two other forums I used to contribute a lot. Now I'm only lurking on one on invisible mode. The other, I stopped going altogether and I was one of the founding member and moderator. The ambience was just not right, a lot of sarcasms and cynism, although not that bad.

    Panda is an endangered specie on the WWF. Endangered species need to mate a lot

    That sounds fantastic. Shame it's not going to happen now.

    I understand your motivation for leaving. Whenever I've found myself involved in forum fights, it makes me think, "Why on earth would I waste my time with this petty garbage?"

    It's very healthy to take a complete break for a while, so that you can make a clear-headed assessment of your involvement in these communities.

    Whenever I've done this, I've benefited: either by returning with a clearer head and unburdened with habits; or by leaving forever.
