Default Not Another Goodbye!

I can't believe I am posting one of these dramatic goodbye threads that I used to roll my eyes at. However, I want a few things to be conspicuously made known.

I am exhausted by this project and have been for a long time. I am now done here. I have watched in anguish and disappointment the actions of the various moderators/admins and the events since the banning of Abrax. I do not approve of the way things are being handled recently and I do not want my name or personal energy associated with this project.

I do not approve of posts and threads being deleted and I made a big campaign for that to stop when I became moderator here. Now it has started again. I watched as the mod team was split over this Thuban issue, and I did not understand what was recently being played out.

I have even been accused, through a misunderstanding, of some plotting between me, GaiaLove and Bill to take out half the mod team. NO I WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THAT. I was brought into a skype meeting, the evening of March 5 where in retrospect I see that decisions had already been made, and I feel like I was spun around a dozen times and the blindfold removed. I am just as confused and disoriented as almost everyone else.

I've looked on in dismay at the decisions that were made without my input or approval and at those being placed "in the mists."

Spring is spronging and I look forward to life without Avalon and much less time spent at the computer. We had some great times here and it's been quite the wild ride. I'm getting off here - much love to all. Thanks to all for your love, caring, and good times.

Infinite love is who we are,
Karen

Karen

I want to personally say thank you for being who you are

You have always been fair and balance and it showed in what you posted.

I see your leaving as a sign of "nothing good" to be made of this forum


I have been with the forum from day one and noticed many things that I didnt like and for the most part held my tongue.

Some very beautiful people have come and gone from here and you will be another.

You have always maintained your cool and I know you are not leaving just because you didnt win a personal battle that was playing out behind the scenes.

I see it as a message "that you believe in what I say and thats the way it is" !

Not just for the mods that are moving forward but the ones that are now in the Mist. They made that decision themselfs when they openly when the Thuban thread was closed. So I see it as a two way street.

I came in here and found so many good threads that I am going to miss as I know that I care not follow even if I am invited. 777s, The Looking Glass, The Watchers, Mudra's etc. Even if I didnt partipate in what they had to offer, I got so much out of them.

Its not easy being on the outside of what they call "the truth" and what others see as their own. Its simply not allowed in here

I have come to the point of "who cares" and spoke out and I feel like I'm in a better place for it

I wish you the best Karen and thank you for being you.

sorry to hear it good luck . i agree people should be allowed to post whatever they want . if i think thuban was nonsense or not intersting then ill jsut skip it (which i did). when i watched tv i didnt look @ every channel. there should be a choice. jsut because kerry and bill put something on camelot doesnt mean i belevie it. i think people were worried that everything on thier site should be taken as gospel or something. let people be i say.

Karen;

I have always felt you did your straight-up level best here,
and that your heart was always in it.

Thanks for that.

Fred

Thanks, Karen. You have been a constant foundation behind the scenes and a wise contributor on the scenes.

Ernest Holmes said, "When we have arrived at sufficient understanding, our thought will take us where we wish to be." Good news for everyone.

Exclamation Re: Not Another Goodbye!

Wow I missed a lot in a month.

Rock on Karen I have high respect and lots of love for you, even though I know we don't didn't always agree on everything you always took care of situations with lots of wisdom and kindness at heart.

Same with Anchor, you two helped keep Avalon great. Much love!

Well I'm leaving too. I really don't like this whole idea of this new 'elite avalon 2' forum. I could never even consider joining a group that deems itself ethically higher then others. Ethics are changeable for one thing!

There are many other reasons but I'll just be nice and say thanks to everyone here for sharing your various energies. I look forward to the next forum that will open and meeting you all their again the future!

Reconsider! Something screwy is going on...and if the good people leave...guess who's left! Some people get paid to be good...but we're good for nothing! Seriously...this is not a good time to abandon ship. I want to quit every single day...but I can't. Please stay. I'm sensing a controlled demolition of Avalon. Red Alert! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-hqb...eature=related

I am relatively new to this thread, but I do want to thank you for your service and devotion here to this site.

What I just read in your OP, is truly sad. No one should have to endure that stress.

I hope that you are able to find balance and a place in life that will offer stable peace.

Come back and visit.

Thank you!!

Karen was the first person to help me on Avalon when I had a technical problem, and she got my problem fixed in a day! - its very disheartening to see so many respected members leave in such a way and that they disapprove with the current state of affairs. I hope the best for you Karen, you were always a great person with everyone and this won't be forgotten, I certainly won't forget you.

Peace
