    I hereby respectfully request my account be disabled.

    Four months ago I retired from the secular career world. I am now serving a small congregation on a part-time basis. I no longer have the interest, desire, energy, or time for distance learning boards. I have been involved with DL boards for 15 or so years beginning with the old AED group (I think that was its name.) and then moving on to Degree Info, Degree Discussion, and DL Truth. It's been a wonderful, fun, and at times, humbling experience and I have developed some wonderful friendships along the way on all these boards and many of us continue to communicate via Facebook. I want to spend more time with my family, restore my health, build my congregation, and catch up on my reading.

    God bless and/or good luck.

    Take care and so long,

    Farewell, Jimmy, and best wishes. (Not sure why you need the account disabled, though, when just not using it would be as good for your stated purpose.)

    Jimmy, please take care of yourself, your family and your friends. You will be well remembered. We do not "disable accounts" and so you might think of that as an open invitation to visit if you ever get the impulse. Thanks for all your contributions over the years.

    Why, Jimmy, how dramatic! I mean, you could have bid a quiet goodbye with a soft wave, or merely ride off into the sunset, and left your account active in case you ever wished to pay an occasional social call. After all, this is not your first, um, extended break from these boards. Or are you simply looking for another “tribute” to you by the guys over at DLT?

    Nonetheless, your touching message brought to mind an old song by Beach and Trenet (recorded by luminaries ranging from Sinatra to Natalie Cole to Rod Stewart). And so, I return to you a relevant lyric from a classic in the Great American Song Book . . .

    And now, thanks to you, James, that damn song will be in my mind all day… :wave:
