Default I'm officially retiring from Abandonia (UPDATE: Looks like I'm here to stay!)

December 2009:
I received a letter from my ISP notifying me that I got caught downloading a game by the ESA. I was only given a warning not to do it again, which I began to ignore several months later...

July 2014:
I got caught by the ESA a second time for downloading another game. Once again, I was only given a warning.

I thought about ignoring the warning again, but since this was the second time it happened, I thought twice about it. I don't want my ISP to cut off my Internet, and even worse, I don't wanna end up in jail.

Thus I made the decision to finally become a legit gamer, a decision I should have made a long time ago.

Last Saturday, I deleted and discarded all games and other media that I downloaded and/or obtained by illegal means. From now on, if I wanna play and/or download something, I'm buying it. I don't care how rare and/or expensive it is, it's better than risking jail time.

Because I'm a legit gamer now, I can no longer upload anything to Abandonia anymore, and therefore must retire from the site. I've already cleared out my 4shared account (I'm deeply sorry to anyone who still wants to download the Sonic CD ISOs).

However, even though I'm retired from the site, I'll still pop in every once in a while to say Hello to everyone and check on how things are going. I've said it before and I'll say it again: You are the nicest and most wonderful community I've ever been a part of on the Internet, and I'm extremely grateful for how good you people have been to me all these years!

With that, I say farewell, until we cross paths again!
