Wondering if it would be appropriate to mention a few names, people who suddenly disappeared from the LJ site without explanation. Could they be in ill health, perhaps no longer living? Maybe they just got tired of this site, picked up their marbles, and left?

As we approach the end of the year and the holiday season, it would be nice to know what has become of LJ alumni missing in action.

If you know the status of a long gone member, please bring us up-to-date on his/her current status!

If you yourself haven’t posted or had any other activity in a year or more, please check in and let us know what you’re up to these days!

An example: “abbott” whose last activity was 1176 days ago….where are ya, man?

Thanks, bandit!
Yeah, ’Kreegan’ got himself in hot water over a few unpopular statements he made….and hasn’t been heard from in over six months. Perhaps he is back, with a new persona? Who knows???

Thanks Don!
Yes, saddletramp was a plane guy, for sure! Maybe somebody knows of his whereabouts these days!

distrbd: Yeah, I guess in some cases a member might just spin out and get into a jam that one cannot easily get out of. Curious, though, whether anyone has re-incarnated one’s self and started fresh.

I’m more concerned, in this thread, about those who have silently, and without explanation, disappeared. May hoping to hear of a few stories about how one’s life turned a corner, and is now unable, or unwilling to keep on participating.

Since most of us use an alias, or user name, and few of us post an email address, it’s hard to follow up on a missing member sometimes.

Yes, renners, they are two colorful people.
[edit:] Vipond was active as of 2 months ago…. Moment, 3 days ago.

Thanks, Larry! And my condolences.
There was talk at one time of an honor roll for late Lumberjocks. Lest We Forget.

It feels terrible when you are trying to revive an old thread and ask a couple of questions but soon realize the person you are trying to reach has passed away.
