GWHG Looses a valuable Googler

posted in GWHG |

In case you missed it “Bergy” Berghausen announced that he is leaving Google and moving on to pursue a career path in the legal profession.

His goodbye is here:

Hi folks!

I am extremely grateful for the time I’ve been able to spend
monitoring this group–responding to questions, watching threads,
reading all the new “Introduce yourself” posts, and being consistently
amazed at the speed with which some of our users can type.  This has
become my home online and holds a very special place in my heart,
though with great regret I must announce that my time monitoring this
group in an official capacity has come to an end.

I have made a very tough decision to leave my position at Google to
follow my calling to join the legal profession, and today is my last
day on the job.  It’s been a wonderful time, and I would like to thank
all of you, especially beussery for his great attitude and Flash
expertise, webado for her untiring dedication and mod_rewrite
expertise, and Autocrat for his sense of humor and for his rocket-
speed ascent from being an occasional poster to the second most
frequent in a matter of a few weeks.

It’s been a lot of fun spending time with you here.  Also, this isn’t
exactly goodbye either, since I will definitely be stopping by without
my big blug [G] and contributing in my personal capacity when I’m not
reading about contracts or rules of evidence.  :-)

So, thanks for helping each other–keep on posting!

Good luck Bergy and thank you very much for your all of your help in webmastering issues!

    Oh, drats! Sorry to hear Bergy is leaving! It must be a good attractive job he’s going to or he’d not be doing it, so I wish him well. I don’t think it’s because we (not a royal we, but a group we) drove him to it …

    Does that mean we should no longer crack jokes about lawyers? ;)

    Did you hear the one about …

    Funny - I can’t wait to finish law school and do search marketing seriously!

    Hello Webado! Welcome to, well, here…

    Pat, akismet thinks you are spam.

    Gab, strange how that works huh?

    Spam? Moi? Good grief! Pat needs a bit of an algo tweak ;)

    Thanks for all the good wishes, folks. I’m going to miss you guys, though I plan to keep offering advice until Google or failing marks force me to stop. :-)

    As for Christina’s comment, you power-posters are one of the biggest reasons the decision to leave was so very hard. It’ll take more than lawyer jokes to keep me away.

    No, I need to read better. I thought you had nicknamed akismet as Pat, you know, affectionately like.

    Now I see you meant Pat, the poster from above. Read, Christina, read!

    Oh, bother!
