Amendment II - Going Away/Coming Back topic are not allowed
While these aren't necessarily trends, they do nothing to add to any form of discussion on the Message Boards. Usually, topics like these are started when a person is leaving for an extended period of time or coming back after said extended period of time. Often times, the topic will be made, and the person won't do either of the above and just make the topic to have it.
While this isn't always the case, it's also not really necessary since this is something that can be handled in private messaging groups.
