suspect I speak for most of us when I say we most definitely
will miss you when you go.
Firstly, it would not surpprsie me if I am nto the
first clasiccmp to
pass away. [...]
True. I didn't mention that because it was a detail that for the
purposes of the mail I was writing was mostly irrelevant.
And see my other reply. You have actually never met
me (AFAIK). You
know me by what I post here. So if I made changes to my lifestyle
which changed what I was able to post then yo might miss me even
though I was still alive.
Also true - but also pretty much irrelevant; just because we (FWVO
"we") might miss you under other circumstances too doesn't mean we
won't miss you when you leave us irrevocably!
So as I said, I think I would prefer the enjoyable
life Ihave now, to
a longer, but less pelasant one.
Oh, I would never argue you should let us putatively missing you drive
you into a life you don't enjoy. I would rather you live a life you
enjoy, and I will miss you when you pass and will consider the world
diminished by your passing. (Well, unless I go first and am changed
enough by own trip to the Summer Lands....) And I consider whomever
your life keeps you in contact with to be privileged thereby.
Naturally, I'd like it if classiccmp were on that list, but that is
