So today Evo posted a very old thread of Tribdog (happy birthday) and one of the first posters in there was Njorl, who disappeared without a trace mid 2004. I remember him as a witty and clever poster and I would have liked very much to know why he was no longer there. Seeing the abrupt full stop after over 10 posts a day, obviously, the worst scenerio cannot be excluded, like the respected SelfAdjoint and Boulderhead The list of other members that disappeared suddenly from frequent posting to nothing include FZ+, Mentat, Zero, while Kerrie, Pattylou, SOS2008, another god, Clausius2, Cronxeh, dextercioby, Pengwuino, apparantly gradually minimized or terminated their activities, likely for other priorities. What happened to all of them? is there a way that their forum friends would not need to guess wildly. How about, for instance an extra data cell in the personal user CP, only visible for the "admins" where one could leave (e-mail) addresses, phone nrs of next of kin?
