Hi: I quit all the pipe forums 2 years ago, but don't know why I quit this one. Did I offend someone and get asked to leave? Shocked It's happened before lol!

So someone fill me in on what excitement I missed the last 2 years.

Yo! Welcome back! I was wondering where the hell you'd been. Nothing new, really. As Peeb said, "Hey, nice pipe, let us know how it smokes!"

Yeah, I'm starting to remember a few things as to why I left, but time heals most wounds. When I got my auto-immune disease CIDP, things went downhill quick and I stopped a lot of things, including forums. Now that I'm disabled, I have too much time on my hands. Shocked

Thanks, I lost about 70% of my muscles and 90% of the nerves in my arms and legs, took a toll on the speed of fingering fast parts on trumpet pale

My son has MS, and I got with his Neurologist and got accepted into a free experimental drug trial program from Germany and it has knocked my neuropathy pain down from taking 10 pills a day to one or two a week. I'm still spending thousands with another doctor who is doing various therapies including a diet that is wheat, gluten, sugar, dairy, soy free.

It may be that due to tobacco abuse that members are falling off.......

The mods here have been quite hands off. This is one of the few sites that seems to to be self-moderated and everyone respects each other. IMO of course.

All of which makes it one of the few places where I can go and not expect trolling and abuse.


Cheers,

RR

No, quite the opposite... I quit being the moderator from hell and people left..   Try to cypher that one out. scratch
All I can figure is they was a bunch of them BDSMers. Me? No, I never much cared for German Cars.

I think it was mostly liberals that we lost. The thing about liberals, is that everywhere there's one liberal, there's always another liberal. So mathematically, when you lose one liberal, you usually lose two. Sometimes if you get lucky, you lose three.

I've found that it's pretty easy to run them off with a large dose of the truth.

Guys, I'm kidding!

As I am new here, (well, comparatively speaking) I can attest to the moderateness of the Mods......

Perhaps could it be that smoking has taken a toll on members? If I quit smoking I'm not sure I could stay on a forum of smokers. Kinda like being a recovering alcoholic and still going to the tavern after work with the fellows, yes?
