There has been some questions and rumors going on at this forum about Rustic. As most of you have noticed, he has not been posting for several hours now. The rumors that Alan forced him to resign from the forum "voluntarily" because he`s rating had dropped could be untrue.
Rustic has from a hidden location revealed all the intimate details. His anticipation of being missed, his shock in realizing that the others too don`t bother to read other than what they write them self. And the sudden realization that his mentor and guide was a moron also led to some shocking glimpses of self insight.
After realizing that he`d thrown away even more time than Snibbler in writing senseless bs instead of saving mankind or earning money to paying taxes, he decided to move to Amazon's and save the rain forest instead.
And there he found some treasure and stuff, and saved this chick that he now lives happily ever after with.
