First I want to say that I am not posting this message to stir the pot. I consider MANY of you my friends and therefore owe you an explanation as to why I am leaving the forum. Sadly, this will be my last post. :(
For quite some time, I have felt uncomfortable due to the actions of another forum member. For whatever reason, this person has intentionally targeted my posts and made negative comments towards me. When it first started happening I made the decision not to interact with this person as I wanted to be respectful of the forum rules. I was willing to ignore the situation in the hopes that things would improve. Shortly before Christmas everything changed for me. I honestly couldn’t bring myself to post messages because of the uncomfortable feelings I was having.
I no longer feel at ease here. I can’t continue to share my home and my life when this member continues to take jabs at me. If I sound angry about this I AM. The forum has become my second home and I feel as if I have been pushed out. It upsets me that this member has not been reprimanded for their actions. Perhaps this situation will show H & H management and moderators that control has to be taken away from those who abuse the forum. Will there ever be a circumstance where someone is actually reprimanded? To my knowledge there hasn’t been so far.
Thank you for understanding that I am not able to reply to this post. I just wanted to say goodbye. I have made so many friends here ... I’ll miss you guys. Take care of each other.
Very sincerely, Artsy
