Oh, that reminds me...how come Blogger is not listed in the social apps?

It's instant gratification, instant self-indulgence, instant celebrity, instantly YOU. Share your life stream...
Doesn't anyone just jerk off anymore?

what happened to quonsar?

He left, and good riddance to him.

I've been a quonsar fan, supporter, defender, and apologist several times in the past, but I just three days ago deleted him (and konolia) as a contact as a direct result of the unrelenting shrill anti-abortion screeds they both spew at any appropriate or inappropriate moment, and I would have put them both on a killfile if I could have.

After six and a half years as a member (and two as a lurker), I understand that quonsar has gone through some pretty heavy shit, and has had a lot of demons to bear. I had high hopes that his religion would help him with his problems, but instead it only seemed to make the old quonsar personality lash out in "religious" ways. It was beyond tiresome, it was destroying my enjoyment, not just of the site, but of a member who I had respected for years and years.

I thought I would never get tired of quonsar's bullshit. In the end, I did.

Seems like he left once before, but maybe I'm thinking of someone else?

Damn! Quonsar was commenting on here as recently as last week.

Closing your account isn't really closing your account in any meaningful or permanent way. All you have to do is request to have it opened and you're in business again. It's common for prolific members of metafilter to close their account and cause much consternation. The large majority of these accounts are reopened; sometimes in the matter of a week.

This is a feature.

Damn those people with different opinions, damn them!

How many times is this now that big q has retired from metafilter? I'm sure everyone will be very welcoming when he decides to come back.

Greasemonkey script, anyone?

So did you delete him just before he left, or did he leave just after you deleted him? If the latter, it seems a bit redundant given that he'd gone.

Not that I care either way. I barely even noticed his posts for some peculiar reason.

Ick. Delete posts, insert comments.

oh, I wondered if he got banned or something. Looks like this might be all about him taking a break or starting again with a new identity.

starting again with a new identity

An dark yet uncorruptable new identity. With bat gear.
