It would be too easy for me to go out with a bang. I could write the nastiest (and funniest) Dear Justin post you'll ever see. I actually have some material I had set aside for such an event. It will stay with me.

Blind trust.

I am leaving this space.

I don't even know where I'm going. All I heard was there was something better and everyone I know will be there.

Similar to the afterlife.

I've known many of you for weeks, months, years.

Though at times we didn't always agree, and a few times we probably hated each other — it never got to the point where those feelings stuck. At least, not on my end.

I'll admit, I was skeptical. I still am. I have trust issues. Don't take it personally. It's not you, it's me.

It has been a rough month, for everyone. Though I am a stone, I still crack. On a few rare occasions I may have visited your blog and gave you a piece of my mind.

If I hurt your feelings, I apologize.

For the most part I spent a lot of time joking around. Some might think, "How can you joke at a time like this?"

As I said to a friend here the other day, "It's not because I don't care, it's because I care too much."

I found myself in plenty of situations where I could have argued. Instead I either said nothing, or left a dumb joke.

Steem has actually been a stressful place, for quite a long time.

I can't make any promises but I think with a fresh start like Hive, now would be a good time to also focus on some self-improvement as well.

I want to put my best foot forward instead of standing still or taking a step back.

I want to be able to be just as passionate about Hive as I once was when standing up for Steem. It did take a long time though before I fell head over heels for Steem.

Hive. We can't fuck on the first date but I will call you.

Yes. A joke.

I can't help it.

The real point of this post is to say something I haven't seen many people saying. In Canada, we say it all the time.

Thank you.

I see a lot of people showing support for Hive. Not many thank yous.

Maybe it's too early? I too am cautiously optimistic.

When we receive a gift, do we ever say, "Thanks for waking up, having coffee, starting the car, wiping the snow off, driving to the store, putting up with the crowds, finding this treasure, standing in line, shelling out an entire day's effort in the form of money, driving home, hiding it, wrapping it, and putting it out on display?"


I realize the majority of you won't read this, but thanks anyway.

Thanks for risking so much, fighting, and working so hard.

Even if it doesn't work out, you still deserve a solid pat on the back.

Natural disasters tend to bring out the best in people, if you ignore all the looters.

Communities always come together. They fight back. I remember a few years ago, maybe five - floods.

Neighbors who hated each other worked together to save one another's property. That same thing happened here.

Maybe the water levels will still rise and everything will be lost, but at least we tried.

Thank you, for trying.

@NoNamesLeftToUse The Writer/Artist Himself signing off.


Very nice post @nonameslefttouse, I agree in troubled times communities come together. I so enjoyed posting and reading, commenting and communicating on steemit, but I just don't know if it's worth all the stress that has come about. I am taking a breather to see what shakes out. Good luck on your journey.

I'm still going strong over here: . Just not here on steem, since if I say something someone doesn't agree with, they could wipe out my content from the UI, as a symbol of aggression and control. Had a quick glace, seeing folks are still arguing. This isn't for me at all. Rebuilding somewhere else now.

good for u, i hope i can get something going

See you in the afterlife.

I will out-Canadian you by saying:


Sorry for not saying thank you

I know I have nothing to apologize for, so I'm sorry for apologizing.

Sorry for taking so long to respond, eh.

We need more quality creatives, artists, satirists, poets, critics and skeptics around anywhere.

Absolutely true.

It was a real pleasure mate. Good to hear it ain't over and we will be able to continue to enjoy your work.
A big THANK YOU to you too.

The show will go on. I hope I can snap out of this funk and do something awesome. Thanks for putting up with me.

And Thank you for bringing your vision to Steem. see you on Hive.

Thanks for all those fancy sand castles.

Withersoever which way we walk, the world remains the same narrow crib. Paths will criss-cross again!

Yes indeed.

Thank you too!

I've known you since damn near day one. Thank you.

Let's add some more days to that.
See you on the other side!

Thank You
It was vey nice time with you
Good luck bro

Good luck to you, too.

Thank you, eh?

Yeah eh! Beers some time?! Go fer a rip?!

Thanks for everything, Mr. Himself. I hope we get to see more of your art on Hive, or elsewhere, in the future.

This won't be the last time you see:

This man can't wait to see more of This Man.

You can find me there.

It's almost that time, are you powering down? I haven't looked.. but I am. Next is to remove the delegations.., it doesn't feel good.. not at all. Hive tomorrow, if it works.. things often don't go smoothly.

I did power down. 30k, not everything. I've already accepted the fact I've lost everything. The big accounts can wipe out the value before I even get to taste four years of trying. This makes me very sad and combined with everything else, my friend, this day has been very bad.

I'll try my best to bounce back. Thanks for everything.

A bittersweet day/night


Hi Snook. Thanks for being you. The hug was cool, too.

Your artistry and writing has been a gift to us. So also your friendship. I remember 2 years ago. The kindness you showed when I was scammed. Gratitude and thankfulness are forever. Goodbyes are too damn sad. You will be missed ... but fondly remembered. know that you did find a name and a place here.

I'll be buzzing around the Hive, my friend. I'll give it one final go, before I'm truly gone.

See ya on the side.

Come back and check out your steem values and encash, so not a goodbye till we encash steem, unless Justin puts a fork blocking us to do so 😀

Farewell. All good things must come to an end.

I shall be looking for your art on Hive. And your words. And the rest of it...

Thank you, to you, as well.

I know a lot of us are headed somewhere, that is not here. I like the afterlife analogy...

I have been feeling so dead inside, for weeks. Now what's next? Heaven? Hell? Stuck somewhere in between?

That's the rest of the analogy I cut out of the post.

I'll be around.

Thank you.

Oh please !!! I want to see the nastiest/funniest letter to soy boy, thank you very much.
See you on Hive =)

He's yesterday's news.

See you around.

See you on Hive.

Well I guess I'll see you on the other side!
Good luck to all of us :)

Good luck to you.
