I've been wondering what has happened to dear old Abe, Gorgonzola, and Chuckit?

I'm tired of worrying about people dying all the time, so I think it would be prudent to do a head count or something to account for everybody. Maybe some people just adopted new nicknames (Abe was always very sneaky about this). So, please account for yourself and I'll just assume that everybody else is dead or in a coma or something. You'll be dead to me, and that's all that matters.

Yes. Any messages you'd like me to pass on?

I'm not dead. It kind of bothers me that you didn't think to ask.

Was there some sort of mod fight in your secret mod forum sections that drove Chuckit away?

The last few years of starman's tenure here mostly consisted of randomly appearing, taking some unpopular position in a thread, brewing a shit storm and then leaving after it was over. At least as far as I can remember.

Anyway, I think the HD Thread was his lifeblood here, and that's been dead for years. He has plenty to keep him busy outside of this place, IIRC.

Chuckit vanished on us as much as everyone else. No fight, no warning, just gone. We dug up a few hints he's still alive somewhere. Maybe he suddenly got a classified job that prohibits posting on Mac boards ...

gorgonzola is still around on AIM. I've invited him back a few times for interesting threads, but he doesn't stay.

Got nada on Abe.

Abe was a political animal. After his last Lounge thread got moved the the PL (which I believe he's banned from for trolling so often), he left, with nothing else to do here.

IIRC, of course.

Starman wasn't around to argue with, though he still has Eug.

Sounds unlikely, huh? What a weird/sad story.

Abe is still busy getting over having died last Saturday. It’ll be a while before we see him again.

My return more than makes up for those who have left.

Seriously though, this place is a shadow of what it was even 5 years ago. Why the powers that be haven't begun linking front page news to forum discussions is beyond me...

There should be a roll call thread. Once a month. Or a sticky.

BTW, not dead.

It looks done to me, but I don't think it has been tested in the water yet.

I'm shocked and appalled (and a little disappointed) that no ones has quoted and or linked to this yet:

YouTube - ‪Monty Python: Not Dead Yet‬‏
What, me worry?
