I've recently considered deactivating for two reasons. One because, I've gotten more busy with my work and school schedule. The other is because I am getting fed up with these stupid opposite gender hate rant/questions from both sides that hardly ever stop. Sure, men are more blatant about their rants but it's still stupid to single all male GAG users out for it when female GAG users have also the same.
The vast majority of these male and female GAG users tend to always go anonymous behind their anti-female/male rants which shouldn't surprise me. Don't get me wrong, I've met plenty of nice men and women here on GAG but still. All of the whiny ranters from both genders are starting to become much louder than all the friendly people. Bullshit like this are starting to give me a reason why I should reconsider leaving my account permanently activated.
But honestly, I've seen so much hate here on GAG. There are many (both genders) that jump the gun and make conclusions and accuse you of saying things you never did in the first place. I've gotten fed up too in all honesty.
There are times I've also gotten busy with my life schedule as well.
I usually fade away when this happens but I have never thought of deactivating.
I think what you need is a break... and then to come back.
I've noticed a lot of people that close their account tend to come back under a different name. Don't start all over again. Just leave your account open and login again after a while.
I have gone C over the last month or so I have really thought about usage style on GaG now I have found a groove that suits me. Through blocking topics and careful question selection I can stay away from the negative rants. I say this to everyone who is thinking of leaving, don't deactivate take a break - I am always taking breaks.
If you dont enjoy g@g anymore than sure Or you could just log out and take a long break
If you feel that way then i would suggest going inactive for a while. Consider coming back when you are in a better frame of mind, and less busy. If you feel the same way after a break from GaG then maybe deactivate.
Don't do something permanently stupid, because you are temporarily down. Rash decisions are nearly always regretted
Yes they think it will change something somehow, but it is how it is, no battle on this site is going to change anything.
Things go in cycle on here. Just take a break, don't deactivate. Check back once in a while instead of all the time. You will enjoy it more when you can come back, find a good thread or two to deal with, then go back to studying.
