Re: duuudeEdit

Hello Scarecrow. I just don't want to be a hindrance for your site. I don't know BHS that well, but when someone tells me to "GO BACK TO DEVIANTART!!!" I have to assume that he means me (because an article can hardly go back to deviantart). I also saw a topic at Stooben Rooben's forum which dealt with the case, and it's message was quite disambiguous. I am sorry, and I don't want to make any accusations. I just have my reasons to quit. I apologize for any inconvenience. Have a nice day, my friend. -   Gabumon(talk) 17:32, 25 November 2009 (EST)

Well, that topic at Stooben Rooben's forum showed me that I am not as popular as you say. People are creeped out by me and my presence. It is okay and I am not angry with them in any way, after all it is just their opinion about me. But I seem to upset Userpedia when I stay, and that would be detrimental, so I believe it is better that way. It's nothing personal. -   Gabumon(talk) 18:54, 25 November 2009 (EST)
Uhm... though it is nice of you to try to bring me back to Userpedia, please consider: I was told to leave Userpedia. There's no possible way to deny that, even though I might have gone a little over-board with the "majority of UP" thing. I honestly don't know how much the users of Stooben Rooben's forum are involved with your site. I just figured that since they belong to the same community, they have something to do with each other. This has little to do with overdramaticizing things, I just do what I was told to do, to avoid unnecessary fights. Also see it from an admin's viewpoint: When my writing style causes so much bad blood, then there's hardly any use I have for you.

Well anyways, I think the topic is too sensitive to be discussed in detail in public. I will just make a compromise now. I will take a break, and maybe I will come back after a while. This is all I can do. Please respect my decision. -   Gabumon(talk) 11:40, 26 November 2009 (EST)
