The Semi-Retired Foamer, after around seven years, is giving in to the pressure and hatred that exists in Facebook and taking a good long, and quite indefinite, break from that horrid little world.
It is quite surprising how this hatred can drag you down to it's level and then beat the bollocks out of you.
My interests have already been taken far away from rail, however, while I still have the desire to work on a couple of major railway projects, I am planning to put this newly found time to good use.
If there is one piece of good advise I can give. When using Facebook beware, not everyone out there has good intentions for you. It is an incredible tool for keeping in touch with friends, sharing photos and especially researching.
However, a little bit of effort from anyone who may harbour ill intentions, can see lives manipulated and ruined.
Far to often, I feel the hobby tends to forget it is mean't as a fun pastime.
Be good to each other.
