I pretty much realized over the summer that I'd gone as far as I could go with FC. I honestly knew my days were done once my credits started to expire (and I'll admit, if FC changed the silly rule I'd still be here today.)
As I've said before, FC was there for me when I was in need of some extra cash. I only wish the site were as lucrative for me now. The time & effort put in to getting surveys is no longer worth it for me. If FC ever goes back to not having to qualify for the daily PTC or at least has regular videos that make that viable again, I'm certainly open to returning.
So I'm not burning any bridges, not deleting my account. I may even show up from time to time just to see if the site makes it worth my while to resume using it. But I'm probably finished as an 'active' member for the time being at least.
For those wondering, yes, I'm still disappointed that FC allowed hitch to run roughshod over the forum. And yes, as of now, they still haven't responded to my most recent support tickets. Last I heard they were looking into how to remove him permanently, but apparently it's not a pressing concern to them after an entire year.
Regarding hitch and his 91 other personas, I don't regret leaving the constant battles (which I'm sure his inflated ego will cause him to declare another victory ) Matt 7:6 Jesus said “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces." Obviously, hitch will not listen to reason, and to go over and over the same ground seems foolish at best, self serving at worst.
I've done all I could to defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ against his satanic doctrines. I left an example for you to follow in defending the truth. Now all you who are my brothers & sisters in Christ, must take up my mantle in my sted. I leave you with a final verse. One from the great Apostle Paul. Even for him, the race had to eventually end: Acts 20:25-31
“Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again. Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears."
If anyone is interested in following me, I won't make it difficult (in fact an anonymous member has already sought me out!) just look up Johnnie Torch on twitter. I'm there way too often.
And so, thank you to FC, thank you to all the nice people I've met and remember- Keep the flame burning brightly, and I'll be with you again real soon. (my youtube sign off )
