Just wanted to drop a brief note to the one or two folks who might've noticed or cared that I've been unusually quiet on here lately that this will probably be my last post on here for a while. A recent professional change brings me a bit too close to many of the projects discussed on here to feel comfortable joining in. So I've decided that it would probably be wise of me to sit back and, hard as it might be, not add a five page response to every thread. But not to worry... I'll still be lurking. And to those of you on here who know me personally, I'll just say... I'm back.

Thanks for letting us know about your status.  I know that when you go to work for an entity that is involved with many projects, you should keep quiet.  I think we all understand that.  I also know its very hard to sit back and not say anything; but with willpower, that can be done.   I'm fortunate that since I work for a small architectural firm, I can freely discuss most of the big projects going on in the city.  However, I have kept some information secret over the years before the projects were announced.  A few of the projects, I had to keep quiet over a period of years, so I know it's tough.

 

We would still like to hear from you from time to time, so if there are some topics that you can freely discuss, please make some comments.  In the meantime, happy lurking.

Thanks, John. For me it has less to do with having the discipline not to accidentally leak something, so much as it is the perception of inappropriate behavior or anything that would otherwise be considered a conflict by being an active participant on the forum. I enjoy having enough anonymity to actually say what I believe on here without having to hold back and be as diplomatic as I have to be when I'm not on here. So, with that in mind, I'll have to voluntarily bench myself. But, I will definitely be reading... and judging ;).
