Goodbye Russ, I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.
Thanks for the hard work, see ya.
It'll be sad with you gone Russ. It was fun to have you as editor and chief here. But now who will defend us if Kross decides to hijack the forum with the evil plans that I am as certain Kross has! How certain am I? I'm as certain as people were that Titanic wad unsinkable!
Sarcasm if you don't get it.
You did a pretty good job, Russ. Minus game dogs that is. Peace.
Good luck in the future! :3
Not gonna cry. Not gonna fucking cry.
We'll miss what you added to the site. It shall not be forgotten.
Good bye Russ Pitts, may your finger always be at your side, ready to fire whenever you may need it during your next big adventure. I'll always remember the bit of acting you did, the articles you've writen, and the badges you inspired. Have a gooder!
Also, I might have to join twitter just to follow you now.
Adios, dear, sweet space cowboy.
Thank you for playing your part in making the Escapist what it is. I've been reading the Escapist for awhile now (Before I became a member). It's the only place that let's me hear/read about videogames as something significant and worthy of discussion. The Escapist has put 'Videogame journalism' right up there in the things that not only I want to read about, but also in the things that I feel are valuable to read. It sounds a tad silly, but in a place where videogames are dismissed as 'stupid fun' or 'child-play', it means a lot to me.
Thank you Mr Pitts.
That being said, I'm glad Mr Butts is stepping up to the role, he's one of my favourite people on the Escapist. :)
Sorry to see you go........ Good luck on your next venture...
Goodbye Russ, and good luck on your future adventures.
Thanks a ton for what you've done for the Escapist, you will be missed.
it's been good, Mr. Pitts. always hoped to meet the Escapist team at some point in my life, and the ol' EIC was def the first person I thought of

Thanks for all your hard work Russ. Take care and goodluck !
I've always liked your work and way of thinking. You will be missed, Mr Pitts.

Sad to see you go Mr. Pitts, but it's been a good run. Until we meet again!

MEN AND WOMEN OF THE ESCAPIST
Good luck and +1 for activism (such as preserving wildlife etc) :)
Sorry to see you leave, you will be missed :(
This is quite sad indeed, but if you want to go, then go :'(
Hopefully Steve will fit into your shoes, so to speak.
And i hope you'll have a great life whatever you do :D!
Also, it was kinda sad seeing the final fingergun.
Oh, it is sad day, as Heavy Weapons Guy said.
Goodbye, Mr. Pitts. You will be missed. /salute
I wish you happiness on your future adventures.
Farewell fair.. uh... prince? Good luck with whatever you plan on doing next
So what will become of the podcast? If your gonna replace Pitts can you get someone who wont condescend and alienate me for my view and/or taste in games?
