Who do you miss?

Postby Lady tehMa » Nov 4th, 2016, 6:34 pm

It could be someone from the board, or in real life.

I miss Jo. I also never thought I'd say this (we never saw eye-to-eye) but I also miss GrammaFreddy.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.

I miss Jo as well. Whether she agreed with your opinion or not she was always impartial and fair.

Grammafreddy. She always added spice to the conversation.

I used to respect Nab's opinion on matters, even though I didn't always agree with him.

I always appreciated the well thought out views that Steven Lloyd shared.

When it comes to the forums, I miss something about all of them. They all had something to contribute. GF though hit me the hardest for some reason.

Last time he checked in was April - said he was too busy with career at this point in time but said he'd be back one day. I miss too many to list but everyone mentioned so far at the top of my list (and my family that I don't see as much of as I'd like).

I was out in the garden and it hit me like a ton of bricks, I miss Donald G. His ponderous words were definitely missed last night, I wonder what he would have had to say.

I also miss Logitech banning me, oh, and Captain Awesome's free pretezals and Twinkies, even though he never ate them, for all. And miss how he used to post Thanks Smokey for me ever time I asked for it. Where ever you are Captain, I hope you and Logitech are doing fine.

I haven't been around much this last year so I am a bit out of the loop.
Some people may have changed their names which confuses me, but I haven't seen anthing from from Baba O Reilly, Mama, Onestop, and there are a couple more I can't even remember what their names were....people who seem to have just disappeared.

He took a new position that was more high profile and so he was reducing his online presence. He still checks out the board from time to time but doesn't post.
