If you don't like it here, then leave.
What a cop out.
I couldn't tell you off the top of my head what Intrepid said in his post, and I don't care to re-read it. My general consensus of him is that he raises some valid points, but the message gets totally lost in his delivery. However, I can nonetheless give him points for trying.
To paraphrase Carl Shurz...Our board—when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.. Intrepid's just as much a member of the place as anyone else, and if he thinks stuff is broken and needs re-evaluation or modification or whatever, he's just as free as anyone else to post on the subject.
Think he's in the wrong? Super. I'd prefer to see a useful debate on the subject. Convince him that he's in the wrong, that things are fine, that we should all stay the course. Maybe he will get pissed off and leave. Maybe he'll chane his mind about things and stay. Who knows. The site improves by (a) his ideas being implemented or (b) him being placated and not ranting or (c) him getting angry and leaving and not subjecting ayone to them or (d) useful debate ensuing or any number of other things.
Or hell, ignore it and move along.
But "If you don't like it here, then leave"? Please. That helps nothing.
