Glory days of 08-11? It was more like 07-10 at best.
I never understand theses permaban requests. If you are no longer interested in the site why can't you just stop coming here? Many great users in the past have done it. There also seems to be a trend of these grand goodbyes happening.
It makes a little sense when a super active user with tons of post per day request one because they are addicted.
All the same its sad when a regular goes.
