Former member 98814
I joined this forum a month ago straight after doing my first camino. I'm pretty familiar with the rough and tumble of forums but I didn't anticipate the level of toxicity from the get go on here. It has been a real shock and unsettling to say the least. Dare I say it feels really negative on here, though there are a number of members trying valiantly to inject a bit of positivity into the forums. I have ventured into participating but I've gone away one too many times feeling a bit crappy from the experience. My experience is that anything that smacks of a novel idea will draw on the trolls. It is difficult to describe the sanctimoniousness of many members without coming off like that myself. I just hope the people online are not like this in real life. So goodbye to this forum! I wish you all well! Life is too short to surround oneself with negativity. Shaking the dust off my feet and moving on. Please people think before you post hurtful comments.
