What ever happened to .... ? (the missing BE member thread)
 
People always seem to come and go from BE but there seem to be some old friends and long time BEers who have gone AWOL over the past year or so. :(

I'll kick off with Michael, who IIRC hasn't posted in more than a year and S Folinsky who has only posted a couple of times since April this year, and not at all since June/July.

Another poster I have noticed as being absent, for well over a year, from Immigration discussions--JAJ....

Don't know if they stopped being expats, but a few off the top of my head that I miss are AWP, Rushman and Chartruese.

JAJ retired from moderating & with that I suppose his MO for posting to BE.
Yes BiP I do hope he is well .

Dunrovin' worries me though as he was quite badly injured in an RTA I believe and we haven't heard from him for ages. :(

I miss lots of posters but one not yet mentioned is Another Bloody Yank.

AWP and Rushman went back to the UK...they also changed their username...Old Bill and Optimus Prime.

Elvira went back to the UK.


I am also concerned about Dunrovin.:(

I often wonder about a few who I know had serious health issues and no longer post.

That was several years ago. Last year he was injured in a car accident...sustained significant injuries. He posted once or twice...then disappeared.

Regards dunroving:

He made several posts on the UK Yankee site about a month ago in mid-September. His only comment concerning his health was "As a result of health issues I no longer spend time on internet forums". Nothing more was said about how he's doing.

I met up with Patrick on one of his runs to Yonkers to the Sugar House when he worked for Ben & Jerry. Believe he had it with the many arguments in the Lounge and left in a snit. I know he was very active on FB and believe he is still living in upper NYS near Lake George.

Are we talking about the same person? :unsure: The Patrick I was talking about was ex-military (UK, army) and doing something with PC's and low-level tech support. His wife had a well paid job of some sort and appeared to be the breadwinner. He lived somewhere near Wilmington, NC, very close to the beach. I think he moved up towards Raleigh a few years later. He was abrasive and foul-mouthed.

No, we are not. Realized there was another Patrick on BE and that was the one referred to. He and his wife had multiple foster children if I am remembering correctly. Ignore my post.

Desi was banned after repeated warnings. I think Gruff and Cinds left us for FB. :(

Does anyone have things in place to post anything on the internet if anything happens to them. Back in the past an advert in the local paper would suffice to inform everyone that knew you. My wife has access to my passwords should anything happen to me and vice versa. Just curious what other people have in place.

Quite often a family member will let us know...either by phone, PM/email or post on here.

Sometimes a family member has opened an account so they can post.
