I take my leave
    #1318954 - 02/19/03 10:25 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Well everyone, I am leaving the Shroomery.

Before all of you start sobbing and attempting suicide  :grin:, let me
explain why I have made this decision.

The PF bust worries me.  I think it is the beginning of the end for the "open
shroom community", like we tend to have here.  This is a serious spore vendor
bust, and I think it is only going to cascade from here.  I have no doubt that within
several years spores will be illegal.  And, I don't doubt that information on shrooms
(especially growing related information) might be heavily scrutinized or made
illegal altogether.  It is only going to get worse. 

  The death of Ripper worries me as well.  That occurrence does not bode well
for this site.  It will only attract unwanted attention.  Unwanted attention is
something that a site like this does not need.

  And finally, the Patriot Act worries me.  The government is probably going
to snoop more and more.  This snooping is definately going to encompass the
internet.  I have no doubt that the Patriot Act will serve as justification not only
for "anti-terrorism" snooping, but for snooping into other areas.  This includes
"drug information".

  Ironically, I am probably the only person on this site who does not use
drugs, grow shrooms, or have an interest in shrooms.  I come here just to
talk.  So, you could argue that I should have no fear of any actions by law
enforcement.  Why am I scared, you ask? 

I don't want to have to deal with being "monitored" or having the cops show up at
my door one day.  Even though I have nothing to hide, I don't want to deal with
being under suspicion.  It's just not worth it.

All of these occurrences have had a chilling effect on my desire to partake
as a member of this community.  For the sake of this site, I hope you guys have
more gumption than I do.

I have had a lot of fun here, and have enjoyed debating with everyone.
I'll miss you guys.  Yes...even you Alex.

Sorry to see you go, but do what ya gotta do.  Personally I think you are over reacting...then again as a Canadian I don't have much to fear from the Patriot Act or Homeland Security... :smirk:

Good Luck with life...

It's always a shame to lose someone of intelligence. I hope after a time you will reconsider and rejoin our humble community.

I am fortunate in that I live in a country with no laws one way or the other about psilocybes, a country where they grow wild practically year-round. I use them strictly for medicinal purposes (I suffer from Horton's Syndrome, commonly known as Cluster Headaches or Suicide Headaches), and only twice a year at that, but if I lived in the USA my motives for their use would cut no slack with the DEA.

I agree with others that you are being overly cautious, but I can also understand your desire to keep as low a profile as possible. I wish you every success with the rest of your life.
