I've got this little theory where all the best clickers have to leave the klik community, give up on it, think it's retarded, etc, at least once. It's kinda like how the best skateboarders take at least one serious fall. I dunno... maybe it's the apparent lameness of click products or maybe the harboured aggression.
Personally, I've left about 3 times, though I never really announced any cept the previous time. First time was shortly after the Click Cafe went down and there was nowhere to hang around cept #k&p and the BES forums. Second time was somewhat around the time I realised I couldn't make the game of my dreams with MMF's limited power. Third time when I had to focus my life on studying.
But eventually I came back, because I realised that although the Click Community is full of retards, they're still a hell lot smarter than most of the people I know in real life. I mean, if you even discuss politics or religion in real life, well, the opinions are extremely one-sided. At least in the community, you get a good debate.
Oh, and I still work a game about 4 hours a week lately.

I don't think I've ever left... because giving up TO is the last thing I'll ever do. In the more difficult coding sections of TO I've often thought of leaving after I finish TO, but really... the temptation of making cool games will keep be back
I never left because all your pathetic insults bounce off of me like... rubber... bouncing things...
"I mean, if you even discuss politics or religion in real life, well, the opinions are extremely one-sided. At least in the community, you get a good debate."
Unfortunately that's true - even in my grammar school X(
Well, that's because they were undeserving of the name 'insult'. And they bounced off of me like rubber bouncing things. I think the late Fire was the only one who did that, and maybe some guy from #K&P who floods 'STFU n00b' a lot
Seriously, how can you leave a community? It's a friggin' website for crying out loud. You can't just type in an address and as you type www.c... the Daily Click website pops up in history, you don't just say "Nope I promised I wouldn't go back there, they'll just tease me." Ah, you faggot! You can leave Weight Watchers, put a little message in the newsletter, but you can't leave a website.
The next person who makes a "I'm leaving, because I want attention and people to feel sorry" post, I'll kic... flame them.
