While we're on the subject, has anyone heard from Kherbert?

These kinds of threads usually get locked: explanation being if you cared enough you would have PMd in the past them and have outside ways of interacting with the missing who could be under a forum sanction of some sort and can't post back.

Plus it sux when no one sees you have been gone and no "where is X?" gets posted and also sux when people see and remark upon you being gone when Real Life hands you dog biscuits or kitty crunchies and you need to take time to even _think_ about posting or reading or even being online... and when you come back no desire to mention just why you were gone.

The same for if being sanctioned (not that anyone mentioned so far has been that I know of... I've been offline on vacation for over a week.)

Sorry, I didn't realize this sort of thread was frowned upon, but the bolded is what I was hoping someone could tell me. That's why I asked if anyone knew her on Facebook or somewhere else IRL.

I wonder about Mommy Penguin and others.

I can answer re: Mommy Penguin.  She's doing fine, just moved on to other activities / pursuits and not on these boards much.

I now have a mental picture of a penguin and giraffe having friendly chats.

Well...our IM chats usually do start with "HI PENGUIN!!!!"  With a nice "Giraffe!" in response.  And no, I'm not substituting screen names for what we really say -- we really do call each other Penguin and Giraffe!   >:D

There are a few posters who used to be really prolific who disappeared! I always wonder about Piratelvr and Lynn2000. It never seems odd to me if people drop off posting slowly, but people who went from posting multiple times a day to not at all make me curious. then again I did something similar a few years ago, realized a particular internet space was bad for me and quit cold turkey.

I've wondered about Lynn2000 a lot. She hasn't posted in about a year, hopefully she'll come back. I really liked her posts.
I can't speak for the others, but I remember the last post Lynn2000 made - it was quite an innocuous question and a couple of posters were really rude about her and her motives over it. I remember thinking at the time that people seemed to be looking for an argument, but it seems she hasn't posted since. I hope it's a coincidence, because it would be such a shame to have someone who always seemed so genuinely nice feel picked on & like they had to leave the board

Does anybody here remember Cyndi?  This was many years ago. She was a young woman with autism and would post fascinating things about her condition.  One time she was recording a video and a car alarm outside her window triggered a "meltdown" and she kept filming until it was over and posted that to illustrate what a meltdown looks like.  She was an amazing woman and she just vanished off the board.  I miss her.  I sometimes wonder about her and hope she's doing well.

There was also a lady who gave the best advice and insight, I forget her screen name but she had a number of children and quit the board to focus more on her family. 

Another girl who I really enjoyed following was AFBlueBelle.  She seemed like a super cool person.  I wish I could have met her in real life.
