A lot of posts asking you not to leave, and here´s another one.
What was happening lately was mostly due to 1 person, namely aatje. We discovered yesterday that he/she is actually Remco from beginning of last year. I don´t know if you remember him, but he causes HUGE amounts of trouble on the Forum and eventually stopped posting in March of last year. This member was horrible and pissing everyone off.
The same thing was happening now and building up. I believe this was the major reason for all the ridiculous Rigtard threads.
aatje´s account is now either deleted or hidden by probably Admin as he was advised of this yesterday.
That is the point I was making in my last post to you about having respect in the forum. This community has gotten pretty large, but just 1 rotten apple can create a very disagreable experience on the forum for everyone. Someone has to do something about it, or all of us regs on BRM wouldn´t last another few months either. We "banded together" and got to the bottom of it. SuperNoob was the first to discover the multi-accounting thing. Problem solved!
As I see it, the "evil" has now been rooted out, and we can get back to normal enjoying the forum and avoiding the unpleasant and sometimes quite agressive "Rigtard" posts flooding the forum lately.
If you had the time to read all the relevant posts, you would be able to see how this has been building up.
So.....back to normal, and I hope we will have the pleasure of reading some of your posts again soon.
...and don´t forget the jokes. LOL
Edit: Just had a funny thought..
Don´t know if you believe in "Chivalry", but I do. I believe in total equality between men and women, but I still believe in opening the door for a lady, letting her go first into a place unless it is unknown, carrying the heavy stuff, and letting her choose where she wants to sit in a restaurant etc.etc. Call me a guy from a previous generation.
So as I see it.
The land was threatened by an Evil Villain. Lady BRM had to go in hiding in the Castle. The Knights of BRM rooted out and destroyed the source of the Evil. Lady BRM can now safely walk the land amongst the Peasants and Knights alike.

aye,it's always sad to see the better members leave a forum, the thing i like about this forum is the help and support from fellow members it's usually top class and the advice is second to none plus most people are friendly also, so all in all this is one of the better forums,hopefully you will reconsider and continue with your input and just try to ignore the ones who are annoying you as that's what i generally do. at the end of the day it's your decision but don't let a few/one idiot spoil it for the many good ones.

I was already part of the community in the beginning of the last year and I don’t remember no Remco. Guess I should be participating less in that time than I am now. All these little problems always have a solution, and happily BRM knows how to keep everything running well.

I only plead that you take some more time to reconsider. Im not sure you'll even read this but i always thought of you as the forum Mom as each forum always has one. We are mostly testosterone driven fools, myself one of the biggest. Most times what is meant as a sarcastic joke by one can be a mean cruel blow to another. We are not careful enough with our words on the internet but deep down we all are good people i believe. Tony was right to suggest some time. You are a valued member of the community and noone wants to see you go.
I do respect your decision obviously and regardless of anything all the very best to you and your family. Also thank you for posting the post you did, i think you've reminded us all we are all here to have fun and learn some poker and to respect people more.

I sure dilkiv never got to know some of us as she did the senior members here at BRM, but it is known that here threads were always of laughter, guidance and direction. Never did I see her criticize another, maybe crack on someone she knew well, but without intent to hurt.
As I've read through all of the posts / replies requesting your presence it must be somewhat touching to a person such as yourself. I must say I always enjoyed your jokes in which I shared with my wife on several occassions and your post with your son and how he reminded me of a young Paul McCartney. All I know is if an individual such as yourself was missed by others as they have expressed then you have really influenced many with your presence. I hope with all this expression sent by the Mobsters you post a thread of laughter for everyone to acknowledge that you know they do really think highly of you. Even the some of us who didn't get the pleasure of knowing you better.
I see most all the Mobsters are great people and it's a blessing to be part of such a worldly group of individuals. That I can honestly say.

If ever we get out of line again dont ever be afraid to be the voice of reason again
lol you guys are bad and out of line most everyday
"voice of reason" well maybe sometimes but I like all of you need a kick in the ass at times as well
Nice to see you back - I was beginning to think you weren't going to revisit and would thus miss the threads and responses posted about you leaving. Oh, BTW, you should read all of these posts with the theme music to "Welcome Back Kotter" playing in the background...
