checking out (of) Foursquare

Foursquare and seven days ago...You guys know, I've been checking out Foursquare, that service which lets you "check in" from your phone to record where you've been, earning badges and the attention of your friends.  I've decided it is an input-only system, I'm not getting anything out of it.  In fact I'm not even sure what you would get out of it, if there was anything to get.  Maybe if all of you were always checking in from everywhere I'd know where you were, but so what?  Meanwhile as far as telling you where I am, well, if I want to do that I can do that, by posting to FB or right here.  So... I'm checking out of Foursquare.  I'll be back if I can ever figure out a reason to do so :)
