I'm out of here...
Tired of the crap. Yeah, I admit to being snarky at times... and sarcasm has its place on these forums from time to time... but the constant whinging and arguing about when the iPhone 5 is coming, will it have flash, will it have an LED, etc is just too much sometimes.
I'm grateful for the friends that I have made here... I've picked up some knowledge, and hopefully left a little bit, too.
But it's time to go... so hasta la vista, baby...

lol...you've probably noticed no posts by me lately as well Hank, and I've pretty much followed your sentiments (again), this site is so full of trolls and idiots its not even funny, and when you snap on one of them, you get ridiculed by the peanut gallery or some snide comment by an admin or mod. Not to mention the flood of spam on here...i hate it because i think there are some pretty cool people here, and some people who share some good knowledge on iPhones, but 95% of the content is BS these days.

I appreciated/looked forward to your insightful posts/comments. I understand completely why you are leaving the forum. I've seen the same nonsense on our sister sites over the years and and it does get annoying when your trying to find/give useful info. It's too bad when this happens. Take care and I hope the best for you.

Sorry to see you go Hank. Another level minded poster bites the dust, another tragic casualty of trolls and ignorant people / stupid kids. Sorry to see you go Hank. Don't leave for too long. You will be missed.
By the way Hank, if you find a home where the idiots don't frequent and good collaboration can take place, let me know. I myself am growing tired of the pointless threads and consistent trolling here. For those of you above that have posted on this thread to do anything other than wish Hank well, you obviously have no clue who you are loosing on this forum.

Hank, I'm hoping you just need a little vacation and will be back after a while. Too many people dive in without getting to know the lay of the land first...and then they take things the wrong way. I'd love to ban about a dozen people just for being jerks...but ya can't do that. <shrug>

But on my old site, when we'd ban people, we wouldn't lift it. You were gone permanently.
As for Hank, too bad man, just take a vacation and come back once the 5 is out.

It worked well and the permanent ban didn't come down too often.

Wow, I appreciate all of the support. Thank you, everyone (ok, almost everyone).
Not sure how I'll proceed at this point, but I am definitely taking some time off. In my 50+ years, I've manage to get along with most folks... I am sure that I have pissed off a few folks in my time, too. That's not the point here. I have tough skin, and it's not a matter of being easily offended by anyone here. I just have grown tired of the crap - the trolls, the flamers and those that are just looking to start something.
So for now, I'll just say "so long" and see where this leads. I truly do appreciate the sentiment... most of you who took the time to respond are "stand up guys" (and ladies)... and for those of you who aren't, I doubt that you will miss me or care much what I say or do. And you know who you are.
And finally, to those that I may have offended or "jumped on" too harshly, I truly do apologize.

i can tell anyone personally Hank is a stand up guy and we have helped eachother a lot. it's people like him that make a community exactly that. i have learned a lot from people here and will always be thankful for that. i myself, as of late, have been experiencing forum burnout but i know it would be difficult to just stop coming here. it's the veterans here that keep the place interesting, IMHO
Hank, maybe you too are experiencing some forum burnout yourself? i've seen you fight/argue/discuss with the best of them and maybe that too is getting old hat
thanks for everything buddy and don't be a stranger

You're leaving? Well that's crappy timing.
I only just TODAY realized that the AZ in your screen name stands for Arizona.
Maybe part of the problem is that except for jailbreak related issues, not many people need help lately, so there are more speculation & filler threads than normal.
Take a break if you need to, come back in a few weeks when the new iPhone drops, and make a final decision then.
Just a suggestion.
