I Am,indeed,departingConsider this story my "ending speech",not unlike Adam Jensen reviewing his ultimate choice for Mankind,or maybe even (And bear in mind I'm athiest) the Lord God Himself,looking back at his actions and realizing too late that he's opened the mother of all Pandora's Boxes.
At first,I came to EP to have a mental breakdown.To generally express.Then I made breakthroughs.People helped me.Important things happened to me while I was a member on this site.For a while now it's been about self-ex
The simplest way of summing up why I'm leaving comes with a realization,though.An irony.
EP ONLY DRIVES YOU MAD IF YOU LET IT.
Even after realizing this,I still intend to leave.Not out of some misplaced sense of "The damage has already been done" or "the cannon has already been loaded and the ball is already rolling".I'm leaving for one simple reason.I'm scared.Not of this place or it's people,but I'm scared that I just might give in and become a wannabe prophet full of misplaced certainty and ignorant blissfullness.So I'm going to another site called Absolute-Chaos.com.I recommend it to anyone who's sick of EP and is planning to leave.In fact,it was created by two people who've had enough of this site.It's still small and fairly new and the membership consists of many EP members,both current and ex.I'm going there because it's a chilled site and more compassioate than this one but also because,sadly,it has the potential to turn out in a few years the way EP has.It's too many people in one place that does it.AbsoluteChaos still has a chance to be better than that as it grows,though.If those of us who saw the monster that Armen Berjikly unsuspectingly created act well and act now,we can make sure that what happened with EP doesn't happen again.
And I'm done.
For anyone interested in getting in touch outside of EP,my username was LZJoZ.I'm also known as The Catalyst and as The Apathist.It's possible to contact me outside of EP,but you have to go the extra mile.There are contact details on some people's whiteboards (assuming the posts will still be there once I'm gone) and a little info right here.
For those of you that decide to stay,good luck and look after yourselves and remember to tread lightly.
