We all have to move on sooner or later.

This place was fun while it lasted.

Thanks for hosting Lib and thanks to everyone else who participated.

thanks too nihil hug i've come to a much more thorough understanding and respect for nihilism through entertaining your perspective. i will miss being inspired by your philosophical sophistication and poetic style. if you ever find yourself boggled by an interesting dream, please feel free to get in touch.

i have to ask, out of curiosity - do you think of your username as being pronounced "nile" (like the river) or "neal"? i'm assuming the "loc" is pronounced "loke" like the "loc" in locomotive. nihilistic is pronounced various ways tho. my mind's ear hears it as "nile loke" whenever i see it. (derived from how i pronounce nihilism.)

"This place was fun while it lasted."


Yep.

If you ever revive it, Lib: I hope I get an invite.

Or/and: if anyone else here opens up a 'place' -- and you don't mind a congenitally contrarian 'me' -- I hope I can come and play... wink

Take care, everyone... thumb up

i'm feeling it's time to re-distribute my energy into other pursuits, so i don't foresee a couch revival anytime soon, alas. if things shift in other directions at some point, who knows. for now i feel it's time to let go.

take care henry. hug

All right back at ya, Lib. You do great dream interpretations. I'm sad this place is shutting down. hug I'm not a true nihilist but I do gravitate to the themes of existential nihilism. crying Oh, I'm forlorn without the couch... I'm back out on the streets of the web, without the sweet and warm support of the couch. crying

Thanks for having me. It was an excellent forum.

I like these two versions: 1) "nile" (as in the Egyptian river) and "lock" (as in lock and key), 2) "neal" and "loke." I prefer the former (1) to latter (2).

"You do great dream interpretations."

If you're still into web stuff at all, Lib, might make use of that tallent online. A website offering dream interpretation. Possible revenue steams, like maybe a 'tip jar' or affiliate links. Just a thought...

Hi.

I'd like to believe that The Couch Forum is being 'laid to rest' as a result of my handy work. Yes, I'm that good.

My name isn't 'Yann', I am not the user behind the handles 'Cold Aesthetic Complex' nor 'havohej' nor any of the other 'people' libertygrl and the rest blamed for all the funny stuff.

i've grown tired of trolling, that much i won't deny. trolling is cowardice, and showing pride in one's trolling is the ultimate trophy of cowardice. even still, to convince yourself that you're the reason the couch is going offline is laughably wrong, not to mention absurdly narcissistic. if it makes you feel better, you can honestly tell people that you helped. if i had to put a figure on it, i'd say your photo-posting spree of penises and vaginas is maybe 3% of the reason.

the real reason is that i'm off to live life in the real world, where people don't flock around and relish the occasion to hide behind their anonymity. i'm off to enjoy life. the couch was a great source of catharsis for me, and i've made good friends here. you'll never be able to take that away from me, so truly, don't flatter yourself.

i hope you find your way to a peaceable life. i'm off to do the same.
