I'm very sorry to see you go, Matt... Keep in touch. You have my e-mail address.

I agree that the total lack of moderating in here is a bad thing.

Well, you can just take breaks randomly. That's what I've been doing because QZ is not worth checking every day. You just have to ignore the crap and keep on going! :-)

Richard and YV have done the right thing to create an atmosphere free of censorship and moderator manipulation. If Matt wants to throw the baby out with the bath water - that is his preogative. I suppose Matt could settle for QOL?

Every time I see one of these goodbye messages I wish I had been introduced to Queen sooner. It's really frustrating to just come to appreciate not only the group, but all of you who have been here far longer as well, just in time for the decline of it all.

I've only been here for a few months, I know, and I'm admittedly quite ignorant about much that's discussed here, but I always look forward to seeing posts by people like Janet, Lisser, Mayboy, Geeks&Geeks, Bob the Shrek, Fried Chicken, Flashman, Fatty, Miss James, Zeni, and so many others. It's not just your knowledge, either...you've all been here long enough to establish a kind of comfortable comraderie and familiarity between each other. In many ways, all of you have made me love and appreciate Queen more because of this.

So, while I'll admit that there are a lot of posts/posters who do irritate me with their needless, endless redundancy, horrid grammar, and ridiculous, unintelligent commentary, they are easily overlooked when it means I get the joy of learning from knowledgeable fans and exchanging ideas/news with people I genuinely like.

In the almost three months since I joined, I've seen so many of these goodbyes, it's depressing. I doubt there's anything I can say that will convince anyone to come back, but please, I'm going to ask anyways. You really are sorely missed.

Ja ne.

I am sorry that you feel that way, Matt, but I really don't see what Richard or I can do to make this board worth your time. You don't expect us to delete all topics that don't meet your intellectual expectation, do you? Stupidity, ignorance and self importance cannot be deleted and I don't enjoy it, either. It's only the users of this message board who can make it worthwhile. Moderation is not the answer - just take a look at QOL and you'll see they have just as many stupid posts and they need even more time to get rid of the trolls - with a whole group of moderators.


I do not want any google ads here.

I'm constantly being informed as to how great this place used to be. And as to how many wonderful people have left, because of the newbies.

Well I never realised this was an exclusive club, for a selected few. I thought it was for everyone, be them good or bad.

To be honest with you M@tt, I think it's a bit of a cop-out to leave for the reasons you've given. There are a lot of nice people here who have recently joined, and perhaps you have'nt taken the time to get to know them.

To leave for the sake of one or two people, who will probably bore themselves rigid after a shortwhile, is'nt the answer in my opinion. As you say, you still have friends here and there are plenty more to be made.

Some of you guys have to stop looking through rose tinted spectacles.

Matt I feel your pain! I too feel this place has taken a turn for the worse, but there are many good people here and you will be missed.

Miss you already!

I haven't completely left the board, but I certainly don't often go out of my way to come here. The best days of QZ are certainly behind us.

Eventually I'll call it quits for good, and I'm slowly getting there. Perhaps I may move on to QOL when that day comes.

Keep in touch, Matt.

I admit to finding it harder to post around here, but that has more to do with me than with QZ.

Barry had a nice thread that showed QZ from several years ago, and as Janet noted, it's always had silly topics and idiot users. To say it's going down now is a bit of an overreaction. What's probably more accurate, at least for me, is that you get burnt out. (There is only so many times I can argue with some people, after all) I find it harder to contribute something funny or worthwhile, so I post less and less.

But, no matter how much I try to find better things to do with my time, I still check on QZ. I blame Shrek.

Green bastard?? Green fucking bastard??????

You cheeky little sod. I will come over and cut your hair, which will affect your creative thought process and make your new piano redundant. I'll sell it for $5 (scrap value).
