    Hasta la Pasta

    Well, feels like a good time to depart...I enjoyed my brief time here and gave me both some insight into a different club & league while engaging in some occasionally interesting debates.

    It wasn't my intention, from the outset, to remain indefinitely but quickly got into the team and several of the posters...So, the board felt like a good place to come back to...Some made me feel pretty welcome and many seemed intent on antagonism at each & every turn....As time has gone on and perhaps even magnified more by the tie between our two clubs in CL, the balance has definitely moved more & more towards the latter

    Even on my home boards, we have disagreements etc. but typically we engage in these debates without it descending into routine wumming and hostility.

    But, this is an Inter board foremost and there's no point in remaining where you're clearly not welcome while continuing to be a target for routine attacks...I tried to maintain some consistency in my posts, tried to be honest without getting too emotional and avoided trying to instigate banter that would invariably lead to more vitriol

    I appreciate the good exchanges with several members and wish the fans & club good luck going forward

    Ciao

    wtf man? Did someone insult you?

    The debates are debates, it is normal some will be mroe arrogant to you. But no point of leaving because of debates, or whatever, unless someone has really, really insulted you, and can't stand it...

    Sorry to see that you don't have thick enough skin to survive tame insults on a forum from people that you've first called haters.

    Hopefully you see this one question that I've had for a while and can answer it: Why did you originally choose to support Barca?

    Its sad to see you go but you had to expect that posters would get up set at your barca/spain is the greatest attitude at some point.

    Goodbye FCB. You've been one of the greatest non-Interista in this board.

    Obviously, the drama of the CL ties definitely brought out a huge chasm between Inter & Barca, and also Italia & Spain, and things got more difficult after that of course.

    Hope you'll still come back here in the future when the atmosphere won't be so hostile.

    No, no one insulted me to spur this...At least, no more than usual lately

    The big reason I like football forums in general is the discussions and differing takes/opinions on matters...My usual 'home' forum, for example, is not a Barca forum per se but a football one...I chose to make that my home precisely because it wasn't all Barca...Not very interesting, IMHO, to just be surrounded by Barca fans and their takes all the time (Although we disagree as well)...Truth is, I like the debates, only when they remain civil, of course...I wouldn't get much out of fellow members patting me on the back all the time telling me how great Barca is or how 'easy' it is to be a fan of the club...I'm a fan of the game not unlike many of you imagine

    It was getting to the point (I had been thinking about it over the last month, tbh) where there were few credible/legitimate/engaging responses to posts - it increasingly felt like I wasn't welcome and I certainly didn't want to be a distraction to the flow of things anymore than I wanted to constantly wear a bullseye on my back...It was always the same reaction and after awhile, it definitely began to feel as if any issue anyone might have with Barca or any of their players that somehow I was front & center responsible for it...Not sure how that was going to magically change and considering this is an Inter forum, who am I to tell you lot to be more even handed with your praise/criticisms.

    As for the arrogance about Barca etc., one might consider it to be a case of perceived intent as well...There have been several incidents where posters made some faulty conclusions on things I never wrote in what ultimately looked more like projection than anything else.

    Ultimately, it was always going to be a difficult balance for everyone...Foreign fan at your club's board, how do you manage that balance between sporting discussions not spiraling into hostility?...Anyway, I had hoped to add something as well as get something without it being a constant battle to have some acceptance...In the end, seemed like there wasn't really a point to push to remain if the majority really didn't want you there anyway

    I appreciate the good words and perhaps in the future when enough distance is reached from the tie between our two clubs, I'll pop back in

    Good luck fellas

    And Han, you've been great...Always was very supportive, even you were pissed by my club...You run a tight ship...Good luck with any future and inevitable computer problems...We'll always have San Fran, baby!

    BTW, It's On Man - I'm sure the answer to that question can be found in an interview done here in the forum way back when I first joined up

    I like you, even though we dont agree on some issues. But friends dont, so come back when UEFA rig the draw again in Jan next year

    I'm sure we will meet Barca, Real, Liverpool next year in CL.


    Everything a man should be. We miss you Cipe.

    too bad you are leaving, really.. disliking team, or nt does not mean you have to dislike their fans as well, so i think that except by a few persons here ,you are still welcomed. hope to see you back one day

    you were voted for the best non-interista member in the end That does mean you have respect in here

    Your welcome to return any time. You have added a lot to the forum. You may be right that when enough time has passed the hostility may have cooled.

    Michael, you are great example for the non-interisti here in the forum.

    You was class act the whole time that you was here, even when our teams faced conflicts between each other.

    Wtf! I just came across this thread. Had ignored him long back. Not a big miss.

    And you gotta to be kidding Han. We have had far better non-Interista members. Wittman, ata were brilliant. I want ata to return, especially now that Rafa has come.
