Back to Black. A big THANK YOU to you all.
This year has brought a lot of changes for me. I'm in good spirits & health, but to say I've been swamped is an understatement. I haven't had a vacation in almost four years. With no break coming on the horizon, & responsibilities only increasing for me, it's really taken it's toll on how much I've been able to spend here at PUFF, let alone my Mod duties. I've decided it's best for me to step down.
Let me say that this place is the best forum on the internet. The group of enthusiasts here is the greatest I've ever seen, which is why I stuck around for so long. The opportunity was given to me to become a Moderator, & through much pressing from Don (Herf N Turf) I finally caved & never regretted doing so. I learned so much, & was given the opportunity to work with who I believe to be the best dudes on the net. If any one of you have ever had an inkling about the integrity of any of these guys, let me tell you, they are solid as a rock. After I became a Mod, I decided to peruse some of the past incidents (that are going to happen in forum from time to time) to see just exactly what kind of guys I was linking myself up with. After hours of reading through the Mod forum, the ways these guys handled themselves time & time again was nothing short of exceptional. Some of those guys have now faded back to black just like me, but let me tell you, these guys never failed to think of YOU first. The forum, & your experience, & your needs were put above all other things. I knew I had made the right choice.
I'm still going to be around, & hopefully a little bit more soon. But as I bid farewell I know you are in great hands with the current team, & the new additions of Ray & Tobias only strengthen that! I want to thank each & every one of you here for the opportunity to serve such a great group of people. And although this resignation of my duties is the end of me being a Mod, it's not the end of me being part of this great community! This by no means is a good bye!
