thank you so much ravenesque. as is so often the case, i agree with your words
i will respond to your and other's private messages tomorrow as it is late and i am tired. thanks all who sent them, though.
anyone with a genuine interest in why i am leaving need only read through the threads entitled "my poly isn't your poly - so what" and/or "difference between poly and slutdom". the explanation for my departure is clearly laid out in these threads, i feel, and i won't be offering any further words on the subject in this forum. as i said i am leaving this forum, although i will as i said respond first to the private messages before finally signing out tomorrow.
love, respect, and goodbye,
