I've done my bit for this community I reckon. I don't like it lately, and life's too short to let myself worry about petty inconsequentials and people on the internet. So I'm taking a break.

I'm old, I should be sitting in the shade on the beach, strumming my guitar and sipping whiskey. If you come down to the beach..... bring whiskey & cigars (Y)

Take it easy.

    If I make it out that way it will be whisky - we don't use the e for whisky in Scotland :-)

    "The most unique contributor of all time." - how quickly we forget.... Ah, I see that was before your time :)

    @AakashM well... Kilisi hasn't earned any penalty box time AFAIK. I hope you don't think "unique" == "breaking the CoC"

  • @async I don't know what happened, and who can ever really know another person? Read their posts is all I can recommend :)

Sorry to see you go Kilisi, I enjoyed the different perspective you often brought in your answers, even if I may not always have agreed with them. I think it would be fair to say that you have a "tough love" no-nonsense approach to workplace issues that would sometimes lead to unproductive discussions so I can imagine how that would get tiresome. Enjoy your break and your beach. :)


Good luck - enjoy your break!

Thanks for your terrific contributions.


Enjoy your family. Your a good man, and this is a great loss to the site.


Even though I'm still new, but I have read enough answers and comment from you to know how awesome you are. You really a straightforward person I've ever seen. Enjoy your break. We will miss you.


Even though I often disagreed with you on specific advice, I've always known you as a valueable and conscientous contributor with honest and good motives and considerable expertise and wisdom. Best of luck to what you do next :)


We'll miss you Kilisi. Enjoy your break.


Writing this answer just to acknowledge the wisdom and courage you emanate.


Best wishes, you will be missed.
I often found your unique perspective thought provoking - thanks for that!


Thanks for everything, Kilisi. You made this place much more enjoyable.


Rest in peace, brother (but I don't mean the eternal rest - not for a long time I hope!)

Your legacy to this community will continue to be appreciated by many, I'm sure.



Thank you for all your contributions. I always valued your no-nonsense approach, your background, and your straight forward answers. I hope you decide to return to offer your valuable advice again in the future.
