I have joined lots of forums (non-cat), but I do not stay. I have never been thrown off to my knowledge, so my accounts are still open. My longest time on a site was three or four years. I left about three years ago and recently went back to steal their 'thinks' smiley. I had to log in to get access to the smileys, so I posted because I thought it would be rude not to and made up an excuse to be there (I did not want to admit to half-inching a smiley). I also said 'hello' to anyone who was around at the time, but I think they have either left or I offended them and they ignored me.
I tend to be opinionated, elitist, a snob and all those things which are not popular. I do not make much mischief here because I do not have the catty knowledge. Some members here probably think I am ignoring their posts, but I just do not have the where withall to comment in their threads or to start new threads of my own.
I admire people who stick with a forum through thick or thin over the years.
