The "Farewell to Torc" form letter.....

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Yes this does need to by bumped every year or so.

5 years later and we are still waiting for that porn forum and the silence regarding that from the mods and admins that is becoming rather disconcerting. :lol:

Oreo, long time no see. I never knew you practiced threadomancy :-p


And Gimli, for shame threatening to take away an old man's blanket! Don't you know it's more effective to threaten taking away their pills? :P

Threats from a dwarf. Oooo yeah, doubtless Durin is quaking in his boots . . . ;) :P:P

There's a porn forum? :shock: Is that extra, over and above the regular PM fees? :?

Oreo dead? snorts with laughter I think our dear Oreo is very much like a Twinkie, indestructible and totally immune to aging . . . ;)

Something tells me that if you've been lost on the couch for a while you may very well be a double-stuffed Oreo by now ;-)

It's Dailey, you snarling cur, and can I make it up to you by writing a self-serving return letter? I figure your good-by template goes both ways.

Fellow TORCers,
I never thought I would be saying this but I, spd, have come to the agonizing decision that I must return to this tiresome place after spending some time at the Gray Havens. When I first left TORC I was incredibly relieved at having finally escaped a bewildering place where I could not be accepted for not being the Dungeon and Dragons playing, fantasy nerd that you all are. I warmly recall the time that I first decided to depart this poop-covered gem of a website. I posted a Farewell in Welcome, and then answered my own post 37 times until Gandalf's Mother posted telling me to shut the Hell up.

I did not leave, and I failed to take his well given advice, and proceeded over to the MOVIE forum where I did my best to avoid a friendly debate regarding Purism vs Revisionism. After being roundly and most deservingly flamed I still did not leave, but decided to proceed to the Alliance Forum. What a place full of tiresome blowhards!! In no time at all I started 17 different Guilds and we were off and running. Unfortunately the only other people joining my guilds were a friendly bunch called the Moderators. They attached that neato padlock icon, thus preserving my guilds for all time.

Still, I did not leave, but decided to try my hand at RP. I struck out for the Prancing Pony and began my own story, a stern little piece entitled," The search for Bill The Pony's stool sample". Once again those darn Mods showed up and preserved my thread. So, finally, to get my revenge, I finally did leave.

Unfortunately, things have changed so drastically in my five months away from TORC, that I can no longer stay away in good conscience. All my friends condinue to post. I find myself lurking more and more, wishing I could interact with all the newbies. All my e-mails to John concerning my suggestion for a PORN FORUM have finally be answered, and my sketch for a JEDI banner is being considered. This encouraged me more than any of you could possibly know!

A few nights ago I was so thrilled that I downed a case of JOLT cola and pranced around my bedroom in my grandmothers lingerie. Being away from TORC is having a negative affect on my social life and I must return. I have made such great friendships here at TORC that I would be remiss as a human being if I did not say a hearty hello to Aurelin, balrogthane, Claymore, Compa_Mighty, erinhue, Galin, Gandalf'sMother, GoodSam, Gungnir, hamlet, IrisBrandybuck, Jester_RM, lark, Minardil, molocash, rwhen, spd, Storyteller, Tarina, and Tookish_Traveler.

In closing let me assure you that I will not log out and lurk to read who actually replies to this witty and erudite announcement of my return. Also, please be kind to Lurtz teh Stud, who seems to appear and disappear, coincidentaly, about the same time I do. I swear that it isn't me. Thank you all again for being such compassionate, loving, empathetic, sympathetic, nurturing friends. It is good to be back,
love,
spd


And good to see you too, Oreo. :)

And you too Hue!!! :)

You know... those would be better slathered with butter, wrapped in tin foil and tucked under my warm broiler for about an hour.
