*Note: Do I turn off my account somehow, or will it just die off?*
Your account will never be deleted or die off, it will be a part of UGN forever. Quite frankly I can not figure out why people here tend to just quit coming around. You are no even close to the first user saying "BYE". Totally active user and then bang...outta here. A few of them have come back and others haven't.
You have been quite contributing to Captain Cynic so I hope you keep kicking around for a while. If the reason you are not coming around is because you have a new girlfriend...
I just have a lot of other responsibilities that I picked up during the summer
I may have to kick your ass.
And if that is not the case, I beg of you to give me one good reason you are attempting this crap.
