Oh wow. I only just saw this thread.
Will miss you loads, MadPoet. I hope you'll change your mind. AR voices on these boards are needed to create a balance. If AR people go because they get pissed off with the general anti-AR stance here (and particularly from the mods), then that's not helping the animals much.
We're not here to please the people. We do it for the animals.
If you only post on AR sites, you're preaching only to the converted. It's great to be in the company of people who ideas are similar to ours, but that is not enough. We need also to have a voice elsewhere.
There are a lot of people who lurk on VB
and who never post. They too... need to hear AR voices.
If you read this post, please reconsider.
Heck, I'll try and PM you. Maybe you get PM notifications in your e-mail and will see it.
