I've made over 3000 mainspace edits, and I'm tired. I've become rather addicted to Wikipedia, and now I'm going cold turkey. I'm tired of all the tiny edits: correcting vandalism, removing commercial external links, removing red links from lists of bands, things like that. I was hoping I would feel more of a community feeling at Wikipedia than I've been able to feel. I think I'm going to look for it somewhere else. I may be back now and then, if I see a good contribution I can make, but then again, perhaps I'll do it elsewhere. Cheers, Doctormatt 01:53, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Followup: In the last month or so, I've been making a few edits, just for the heck of it. I made an edit to Nardcore, removing a claim that has been tagged with a Citation Needed tag since October 2007 (!). The result is a user yelling at me for doing so: they reverted the edit, and wrote on my talk page "How dare you remove it?". Ha! What silly people!! Perhaps I'll go away again.

Further followup: Yes, I am going away again. I can't take the rudeness here. Cheers, Doctormatt (talk) 04:40, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Much later followup: Okay, I'll make a few edits now and then. Doctormatt (talk) 18:24, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

My interests include mathematics (especially number theory and curves), music (especially experimental and noise), cycling, and a bunch of other stuff.
