    None that I am aware of. It happened that there were several changes in the staff last year though, more that in earlier years. But most of former Mentors are still with us, they just resigned from the active duty. It is a time consuming work, often interfering with our other jobs.

    PF has been around so long now that, some people who were extremely active in the early days actually have passed away. Boulderhead, one of my favorites, SelfAdjoint, and, I believe Quartodecimain, were all older when PF came to be and succumbed to illnesses. Then there's the more recent loss of the considerable contributor, Arildno.

    For the most part, though, it seems people get their fill after a certain point and move on, seeking novelty elsewhere. I, myself, find I have to take long breaks from PF, and the internet in general.

    Fill of what? Too much science? I can't get too filled on that. Move on? where? Desperate housewives? Modern Family? The View? PF is prime time entertainment in my view:biggrin:
