NO this thread is NOT about me taking a break from LV, so don't jump to conclusions and don't shoot me I'm here to say good-bye for awhile; I've decided to take a break from the LV forum. This is partly because I'm well into the school year and being in second year Engineering I'm getting busier and busier every day and taking a break will help me focus on my school work (since I spend the majority of my free time in here) My other reason for taking a break is because during the past month or so, I've seen too much negativity on this forum...much more than usual. Sometimes I see opinions that are TOO strong...to the point where the poster is getting pretty defensive. Also, being called a traitor to LV and seeing negative comments made about "those people" who have left the forum don't really make me feel welcome here any more. It seems like comments like those are everywhere. Yeah, I was losing interest in LV, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm selling off all my LVs and never coming back. I just wish I could come back to this forum where I felt most "at home" and talk to other people about bags and not see all these negative comments in other people's threads. Anyway, enough ranting already, I'll still be around TPF, although the amount of time I spend in other forums combined don't even add up to the time I spend in the LV forum. I'll still continue to participate in RAOK, and I will check messages from time to time, but I won't be posting and I most likely will only read the summary threads. I could come back in mid December when I'm less busy, but we'll see about that. If you have anything negative to say about my thread, please refrain from posting it to the public. You may email me about it, but I would appreciate it if you could just keep it to yourself. Until we chat about bags again!
