    It seems like traffic is getting back to normal. I drove home from hiking on Friday and hit bumper to bumper traffic at 2 in the afternoon.

    Did anyone watch Hamilton yet?! We watched 1776 twith the kids today (as is tradition), but I think we're going to give the Mouse our money tomorrow so we can finally see Hamilton.

    Happy 4th!

    I am contemplating leaving this site for good. If I do, honestly, I will only miss the foo. Convince me to do otherwise.

    I will miss your cogent posts, your brewery updates and your witty riparte'.

    Give up moderating and/or take a sabbatical for a few months. Clear the air.
    It's not funny.

    Hmmmm... brewery updates MAY be a compelling reason. Duly noted.

    Admin/Mod work... yeah... definitely done with that.

    I am also very much rooting for the brewery to succeed. If you leave you have to set up another way to keep us up to date. This site used to be a bountiful garden with only a few weeds, but lately it seems the weeds have taken over most of the garden.

    If only certain doctors didn't ruin most topics by doing everything they can to ruin it without technically breaking a rule. Unfortunately, timeouts and warnings have not tempered behavior in the past.

    It is one dumpster fire after another. The MBB and The Whelping Box have become EPA Superfund Clean-Up sites. And the Spokesman-Review is squarely to blame.

    Be sure to throw a match over your shoulder on your way out...



    ...and never look back.


    I hope you will at least stay in the Foo.

    I would hate to try to moderate this mess in recent months.

    I feel like I should buy each mod a whiskey, a beer, and a Xanax to thank you this service.

    This is good advice, I hope the day never comes, but if it does LIZF needs to go out like this.

    I think my decision is to self-quarantine in the foo... permanently.

    I'd like to say this would be me....

    LIZF,

    I would recommend handing in your admin keys and like a bunch of us have, let your GUB’s habit start to atrophy. I’m around every third day or so and maybe post every other week, sometimes less and every so often more. I suspect I’ll check in less with CaldwellZag being out of here because my check ins were very often to see if he provided an update.

    Everyone and everything dies. I suspect that is what is happening to GUBoards. I guess it will be around for a lot longer but all the interesting posters either have quit or post so infrequently as to have mostly disappeared. Our board has become what we all used to despise and express thanks that “our board isn’t like that” (Donscentral anyone?)

    I think what F1D wrote is very close to the truth.

    I took several months off the board a year or two ago. It was probably the Whelping Box that brought me back, albeit much less involved. I never have fully come back. The MBB is a mess but the game threads are the worst. THE WORST! So much #####ing and finger pointing from the posters (posers).

    If you knew nothing about the Gonzaga basketball and just read the posts, you’d assume this was a team with a losing record.

    I dunno. There doesn’t t appear to be much meat left on this bone.

    My advice. Don’t leave permanently but consider turning in your moderator badge.

    Have turned in my building keys, parking pass, and decoder ring. When the admins get around to it, "moderator" won't be seen below my user name anymore.

    F1D and 23dpg summarize things very well in their posts above. I had my reasons for hitting the bricks. . .safest thing to say about my choice is I knew it was time.

    See y'all in The Foo and perhaps in the MBB once basketball happens again.

    Next question is... do I throw a mach on the pool of gasoline or just let it ignite on it's own?

    It's interesting that the covid thread on the women's board has been very good and respectful. Comparing the people posting in it with the people posting in the mbb threads probably explains the difference.
