Been noticeable of late folks switching gear and folks that you hardly see posting or commenting and they all post to say farewell to not the forum but the gear. Um what is their point?

If you jump ship please do it without fanfare.

Not that I care much for the subject, but this has been done on many forums all the time, certainly here and there's many reasons why some people want to do it. I think the best is, if you think it's too much fanfare and bad, just skip the thread.  Either nobody cares about the thread and it floats down pretty quick or some people actively care, and you know it's near the top so it's easier to skip.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree, but with both opinions.

I don't see the point of saying goodbye to gear, but I do see the point of saying goodbye to a forum you have enjoyed, especially if you have done so actively.

Those who don't care can just ignore.

What you say is understandable but what I am trying to say in the context of the op post is something else- whether you understand it or not people, may still post it- but everyone is more than empowered to not "be affected by it.".  There's no gun pointing at someone's head with the threat of "read that thread or else."

Also, to be clear, I am not suggesting someone "has to" consider or follow this advice.
