I.. have a strict policy against leaving threads, but at the same time, I suppose I'd rather there be some account of why you will no longer see me around here, and I guess this is a way I can do it without being an attention seeking moron.
Right away, I'd like to make it 100% clear that this has nothing to do with my joke about having to leave if cussing was no longer allowed. Although, I maintain that I'd have no chance of surviving under such a rule.
But at the same time, I have to admit this was sparked by my joke. I reread what I said a minute or two after I posted, and I realized something. I stopped caring about this place a long time ago. It's the entire reason I keep leaving every so often. And what drew me back was never the site, but the people.
And this is where I've got to say, I've had a great time on here these past three years with the majority of the people in spam. Most of you are fucking great people, and I wish you nothing but the best in your lives. But no matter how much I like you guys, it's not enough to keep me here. I can't really rationalize any reason behind this, but I just can't shake the feeling that it's just time to move on.
So, to conclude this needlessly verbose idiotic breakup letter, this is goodbye. I hope everything works out for each and every person here, and I want to thank you for the laughs you've given me for three years straight.
It's been fun, you weird motherfuckers.
What ever happened to that guy?
I don't know what to put here right now.
What Trip said. It started at 13 and kept getting worse before it leveled off in my early 20s. You'll be fine. Just always have a backup pair of glasses, I cannot stress that enough. >.> I had to call into work blind once because I broke my only pair.

Well, don't feel too bad. Within a century easy, a majority of the population will probably be wearing glasses due to kids these days not being able to get their eyes off screens. Computer screens, T.V. Screens, Ipads, Phones...
Seriously, I can walk in a house full of teens and every single one of them will be on their phone. Do they not realize how bad that can be for their eyes?
Not saying that's you Esper. If you have a family history of something like that, that's one thing... but being online 24/7 showing your stuff off on TinyChat and Chatroulette probably isn't helping. (Totally teasing you... but still, main point stands.)

don't panic, but do take it seriously. It's probably too early for macular degeneration, but cataracts are still a thing, and other eye problems *can* develop young. It's not likely at all, really. You probably don't have anything serious. Still -- be positive.
You're not allowed to go blind, my dear. You're supposed to be able to see to counter my eyes being next to useless -.-.
