Being female, I still hold my right to change my mind. LOL

That image was such a surprise - it was cute to read the non-spoilers for me until I picked it up. That will probably be my favorite issue.

Maybe the holiday spirit will visit me.

Give me something to hang on to - Rogue isn't going to cut it for me.

However, I'm learning how important this place has been for folks and I have to admit that is probably the most endearing thing I've read in some time. And the most compelling thing to keep it rolling. I like you guys/gals. Whether you post or not, if its a safe place, I like that.


I feel like, if I don't. You've called my bluff. If I do, I've taken something away. If I'm not going to be considered a nut for changing my mind then, I guess - we could revisit this whole idea.


Perhaps, I just need a break and I should add someone else to monitor it so that I can have my break from comics. That doesn't seem unreasonable.

And yeah, as I ponder this whole thing - I may edit this post a few times. LOL

I love you too, Neko.  ;D

Aww, Thanks NicoPony. I still tweet him occasionally but not often, Layman too.

Well, I'm still pretty lazy when it comes to cleaning up these details. So ... who knows.  :crazy2:

Okay, here we go. 


You know, I've been posting on this forum for a long time.  I mean, how long has this place been going on for?  Definitely while I was still at university and that was REALLY long ago.  But in the past where I used to put a lot of thought into making my posts energetic and entertaining, these past few years I've just kind of stated my opinions and that was it.  And that's nothing to do with you guys, it's all to do with me just not really enjoying what has become of Marvel comics. 
Thing is, I've been lurking pretty much every day, without fail, so I still see everything that's going on, and Neko I've been going through EXACTLY the same thing as you.  The stories just don't do it for me anymore.  No more passion.  No edge.  It's just, y'know, churn out formulaic stories that they think will sell. 


So whilst I'm very sad to see this site go, I understand where you're coming from.


Thanks everybody for all the laughs, all the chats.  I'm a very different person now to who I was when I made my first ever post, lots of things have changed and happened in my life, but this place has always been a constant.  It's a good chance that this will be my last ever post on a comic book forum actually, since I'll likely never create a CBR account.  But I'll probably forever be a lurker so you'll never truly be rid of me! 


Godspeed everybody, and goodnight!

It's a relief to read another's persons view that is similar. I have a couple of rl friends who gave the hobby up long ago and for the very same reasons. Disappointment in story telling. One even joked I should change it to their favorite character (Colossus). I laughed, but it is a cute thought none the less.

I could re-purpose the forum. Broaden it in scope and still leave some Gambit things.
I think you are on twitter or I hope you are Spoonz. I think its still a good medium to keep in touch.

You can do group dm's for hobbies. I have for a few other things. Keeps the messages between certain people and keeps it off the timeline. I could do with with the Gambit twitter. I'd say talking out loud, but its more like typing. LOL

Of course those of us who have already shared emails, I hope we'll try and keep up with each other.

I'm feeling more blasé at this time.  :)

I guess this is the last day of the forum? (Sniff) although I would not be against the broadening idea.  I guess I should get on Twitter, seems like some of you guys are going there.


Thank you again for everything Neko!
