I took a break... twice. Did i miss it? Yes!! I love starting fights on here... Like you said, sometimes you are busy..."friends" has nothing to do with it. Personally, if I leave... its because GaG has finally become what irritates me the most... a social media website. I've been a member a long time... i remember when it was a cute little website and specific and to the point (less chance for trolling)... but it has "progressed"... so when it progresses enough to irritate me.. i'll spend less time i guess.
I have been on and off again for 5 years now... This past year is easily the most involved I have ever been and I can say this cite is going down hill... I just don't see as many questions that interest me, or get many opinions. Too much politics, penis/boob size questions that flood the feed I think.
Like if I have a good question I want answered, I HAVE to post it at the right times when people are on to get more than 2-3 responses... it is just becoming more annoying than anything...
But who knows, it could rebound in a while or the trolls could win... we may never know.
Yeah - Past little while a good few have left - I suppose there will come a time when I mightn't be enjoying myself as much or feel that I don't have anything else to offer site, I will probably leave.
I'll stay if those close to me leave, but will miss their presence. Thankfully, I've gotten contact information for those I like that have left, like two of my guy friends yesterday. I may log in less depending on how busy I am, too.
people are always coming and going on this site it's usually most noticeable when the site makes so many changes at once that people start leaving en masse it's happened at least 3 times since i've been here some people who deactivate eventually get sucked backed into the GaG vortex again so all is not lost! you can always get their contact info if you feel close to them
personally, i don't plan on leaving. just take breaks when needed
