What follows is a re-post of http://teampyro.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/the-end.html
The only reason I can think of to perpetuate my own blog would be to continue to respond to a group of Trolls from Epping, Pymble and Baulkham Hills. But, honestly, what’s the point in that. Trolls will be trolls.
Before you get too worked up, this is not a suicide note. What this post ought to be seen as is an end to my hiatus as it gives way to retirement. It has gone through a couple of drafts. I hope it says only what I mean to say and not everything that I really want to say.
In the 15-ish years I have been on the internet, I have been accused of a lot of things. Most of the time, it has been by people who did not read what I wrote. That’s just how things go, and the ignorance of other people should never stop a person from doing something worthwhile.
The problem I am having at this point in my hobby-on-hiatus is that as I look at many (most) of the people who were inspired by the work done by this blog and some of my other blogs, those people are terrible. From my perspective, however, this problem has not gotten better with age: it has gotten worse.
There’s a hard way to see if something can be done about this, and an easy way.
