I would like to take the time to thank those who answered my questions, and put up with my answers to questions.  There are some darn good people on this site, and it is unfortunate that this site is being ruined by a growing percentage of IGMOS!  I'll miss several of you, but I feel that time has come for me to move on!  I doubt I will join any other question and answer sites, been let down twice and I not interested to be at bat for strike number three! Again, Thank You!  Retiredkop is 10-8 (Assignmet completed) 10-42 (This unit is Out of Service), the 10-96's won!

It's been a pleasure to get to know you Kop and you will be missed by many. I can understand your frustrations with these Q&A sites, they seem to disintegrate as soon as it feels like home. Maybe our paths will cross on another site in the near future. Take care of yourself.

Over and out, Hippy.

It has been a pleasure knowing you. Take care. You will be missed. Coming from an extended family of Police Officers your "last call" brought tears to my eyes.

Sad to see you go Retiredkop, I've enjoyed your questions and answers, especially when you share your personal battle with pain, that really got me.

I'm gutted about how bad this site has become.

Take care, all the best to you and yours.

The whole thing makes me sad also. Originally I planned to sign out, and delete my account. I know I'll miss a lot of people I met on this site. I guess time will tell. Thanks for the support!

Your contributions have have definitely been welcomed.

But 1 cop equals about 500 "perps."

You are hurting the precarious balance we are trying to maintain between the good guys and the spammers and the trolls.

But best of luck and thanks for your service.

You will always be mine also! Been haunted before, if allowed, when I pass I will haunt my former son until he gets off drugs, out of prison, and turns away from the devil!. I'm not trying to get rid of anyone, you and a few others have my e-mail. If anyone wants it they are welcome to it!

Don't know if I taught anyone much other than me being me! I enjoyed interjecting my thoughts and feelings. My leaving saddens me more than others will know. I Can't say I'll check in on a regular basis. I just don't do well with watching good things (this site) go bad! I'll miss my friends, but won't miss the few who don't care!
