I always hate it when someone up and disappears from a forum with no explanation

Are they dead? Did something bad happen? Are they happy? You always tend to imagine the worst.


...And I realize I did just that here, hardcore, after what, 7 years since my last post?!

Just went on a big nostalgia bend and checked on several forums I used to go on to see who is still around. So, who is still around here? Anyone remember me? How many of the regulars from years ago are still here?


I've been ok, largely. Moving out of college and into a job took away some of those anxieties that had me here in the first place, so as much as I thought of coming back a few times over the years, life happened and I just never made one of these posts. 2020 has had a pretty rough start with the health of some family and work, but I'm hanging in there, so send your good joojoo my way.

But again - whose all still here?! Roll call!

(omg, my avatar, "Internets", cringe. And profile pic. Yep. Definitely an account left alone since the late '10s)

Re: I always hate it when someone up and disappears from a forum with no explanation

There are several people I got to know and like on this forum who went "poof."
From time to time I wonder how they're doing. Hope they're just to busy and
happy to need this support. I myself am not unhappy, but I'm retired so not
very busy.

Hey, I remember you. Yeah, I mean especially here on an ADHD forum, people are probably especially transitory as they probably sought this out during a rough patch. I do remember some old names from a decade ago.

I was here around when EshkaronsEngine took his life. Used to chat with BR549 a fair bit, looks like she's a vanisher too. Blueranne was banned? Aw.. Looks like Sarek was here until just last year, some others.

I came here during a rough patch too and maybe that's why I didn't come back to say hey for so long, but it's the people I miss.

Sometimes banned can mean that they wanted their account to be blocked from access.

Fair point, looks like their last post was just a 5000 post marker
