    Default Saying "Good-bye"

    Well, it's been a great 10--well, almost, 10 years here at UsingEnglish, but the time has come for me to say good-bye to you all. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to help you, and I wish you only the best.

    That's really bad news !

    Soup! Although you left the forum, we'll never forget your kindness.
    It's easy to welcome new members, but very to difficult to say good-bye to those whom we like a lot. This is life you know ...

    Wish you a happy life!
    Regards,
    xpert

    Unhappy Re: Saying "Good-bye"

    Hi Soup,

    I am very sorry to hear that you have decided to go . You have made yourself a great many friends here who I know will miss you. You've certainly been a massive part of our forum over the years and have helped a great many members.

    I wish you the best of luck in whatever you are planning to do next, and hope that you might still feel like popping your head in to say "HI" once in a while.

    Thank you for everything.

    Kindest regards,

    Red

    Soup, thank you very much for all your help. It is really sad sad to know you are leaving us. Is 'Good-bye' infectious? Kon just said it to us. And now it is your turn.

    I would say 'zai jian' to you, which you know literally means see you again in Chinese. I will miss you, and when you miss us, please come back to see and join us.

    All the best!

    Default Re: Saying "Good-bye"

    I'm very sad to say goodbye to either "Soup" Or "Kon" because you've both been of the greatest to us, though it hasn't been a long time since I joined the forum. yet I appreciated every word you posted.
    For me it is a great loss to see omeone like soup quitting the forum. All through the last month, I've been eager to read his distinguished posts in every thread.

    I hope that you'll allow us to benefit more from your valuable corrections, remarks and feedback by suggesting at least another address.

    Thanks a bunch for all your help.

    It is very disheartening to see a person going away whom we love and respect so much. The vacuum created after your leaving this site is very difficult to fill in. In fact I tried to contact you on your personal email, but mail got bounced back saying your email id does not exist now.
