I sit here looking at a load of made up shite, FWR gone to the dogs, few really funny threads any more. I am getting old, curmudgeonly and no longer able to sit on my hands. I am nice really, try to help people in Travel and Living Overseas, but the rest of it just brings out the worst in me. I am too cynical and impatient with scroungers, trolls, and those who big themselves up to get a reaction. I hardly dare post in relationships anymore.

I have had a lot of fun over the last few years, I have made some lovely, lovely friends here. much love to the atrocious cunts, the Woolley hugs lot, mrs d, cha0s, my volcanic ash refugee, all those in Living Overseas, the Benelux Mnetters, the feminists who have taught me so much.

I have too much work and a lovely family and they need more of my attention xxx

You're one of the posters whose posts I enjoy reading. All the best for the future.

SwishSwoshSwoosh Wed 22-May-13 20:54:18

Have a break, and come back refreshed. Please ?

Hi Porto, I am a newish poster but lurked for a while and have always seen your posts as open and honest. You have always come across as a person with integrity. i have also reconsidered Brussels as a place to visit. I think that mn will be the less for your flounce. Enjoy the extra time you have with dh and dd and return when the time is right.

Sh1ney Wed 22-May-13 21:28:28

Why flounce when you'll be back in a week? grin

FryingNemo Wed 22-May-13 21:32:54

Stay on Living Overseas at least? Please?

A week Shiney? You feeling generous this evening? grin

SerotoninCanEatTomorrow Wed 22-May-13 21:43:24

Best of luck Porto - I for one will miss you (although you won't have a clue who I am - I lurk a lot bit) and as a pp says you always seem balanced and genuine.

CheerfulYank Wed 22-May-13 21:44:15

Bye, Porto. sad All the best.

FuckThisShit Wed 22-May-13 21:44:27

Does this mean you won't be sending me chocolates and fags then? grin

Anyway, who will say all the things I want to say but am too chicken? I canNOT go.

It sounds like you just need a break- don't de-reg, just <gulp> log out. I believe there's a button for it somewhere.

belizabus Wed 22-May-13 21:46:35

Porto, what about Fantasy Football next season?! You jammy bugger.

SinisterSal Wed 22-May-13 21:47:16

Oh no porto. I see your point though.

ScrambledSmegs Wed 22-May-13 21:49:07

Bugger.

Don't go Porto. Please.

sad

Forgot the fantasy football lot. Thanks for giving it a go without the lovely Lenin in charge. I tried asking for a prize for the winner.....

DianaTrent Thu 23-May-13 00:01:05

Oh fuck. Not you too. sad
Wishing you all the best.
thanks

DameFanny Thu 23-May-13 00:03:23

Oh. Arse.

Eh, Porto, it's a shame you feel it's not the place for you anymore. Your posts always stand out as you saying what you really think, rather than pandering to what others want to hear.

I know what you mean. There's been a shift towards MN being a more unpleasant place than it was before. A certain balance has been lost.

But beer that's the really annoying thing -all the good people throw the towel in and all the arseholes,trolls, sensationalists, wankers and attention seekers win. hmm
Don't go Porto, you're one of the good ones!

I know, AFinger, but if it's not fun, it's not fun, is it? If a site gets overrun with people who want to Win the Internet there's not a lot you can do sad

TheBirdsFellDownToDingADong Thu 23-May-13 07:10:02

I don't usually post on flouncey threads, but (it's me Bucharest btw, still in my Eurovision frock) I would also be sorry to see you go, because you are refreshingly normal!! (and I always think you live in Italy like me but I know you don't!)

I do agree about the whackjobbery of late.
