Full disclosure - I never read one TTFN diary.  This has been for 3 reasons

1. I first heard this abbreviation from a horrible '80's flick called Witchboard.  Sorry, it had Tawny Kitaen in it - and that's all that mattered to a 13 year old who watched too much MTV back then.  Aside of that, the movie flat out sucked.

2. I never cared for people leaving.  There's something like 500K users here.  I don't follow diarists, though I read the site and Recommended diaries daily. Why is it so damn important for people to make grand announcements that they're leaving?

3. Who the fuck says, "Ta ta for now?" Who the hell even says, "Ta ta?" It's just a really stupid abbreviation.

Seriously, who cares?  Just go already. I get the fact that things come up in life.  I also get the fact that you can have serious disagreements with many people here. But really, so fucking what? Are you that connected to a website, a WEBSITE that you have to make a grand announcement about your departure?

It's a silly attention-getter, and it's old.  And now I see diaries popping up about defending TTFN diaries. Jesus, really?  I'm glad Kos has set a ban on them. I'm tired of seeing them as well. We've got serious issues to discuss, this can't possibly be one of them is it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
