Friends, thanks for reading my occasional posts.

I've given this site almost a year, and basically, I haven't realized value for my $30. And to me that's pretty sad, because $30 is not a lot. I came closest here on this board. (My other favorites, the Home Depot board and the Sirius board, were pure junk, and I never could pin down a poster named GoofyHoofy on saying something real about the future of Home Depot, even though he is perceived to be a great poster about that stock).

I've not been a great poster myself, and I admit that. But hell, I'm also busy a lot of the day---and I get the feeling that most of the people who are here are not busy much at all.

Wherever I've posted, in fact, I feel like there have been a handful of people already here for years, and they're on this site all day long, even all night long, and they really aren't interested in the newbies. I feel very disconnected from the day-in, day-out posters, who are not much interested in anything but slamming other posters at this site.

I've belonged to a few sites that charge money for admission, but to me, this is the absolute worst site I've ever belonged to. I've learned a couple of things, but basically, my impression of this site is very negative.

The site to me just has this weird feeling. It feels like its history has been written long ago. It's full of old-timer cliques, it's full of people who like to goof off, and it's full of people who don't really want to share much of anything except what happened to them today, or how to insult someone else.

I just thought I'd let you know here, because this board was the best one I've belonged to. You few people here, I've liked. Not enough to get worked up about, but yeah, I did like this board. But even here, not much is going on, you know?

I don't know who runs the site, but I do know it just didn't deliver with regards to giving me stuff I like to read about. You on this board, with whom I picked up with the most, thanks much for the interaction---but I'm not renewing my membership.

Best to you,

Saz
