NAB: since 2014 (RIP. He used to make really long posts like hobbyguy except people would actually read them)
Grammafreddy: 2014 (RIP. She was a very generous soul, but wasn't afraid to give you a piece of her mind if she thought you were wrong)
Donald G: 2016 (RIP)

Roaster: sept 2015 (would never shut up)
Jo: Aug 2020 (former forum admin)
Nebula: Dec 5 2013 (a bit creepy)
Logitack: Oct 2015 (some teacher I think)
Crash 99: Sept 2011 (was mostly before my time)

Rwede: Dec 2017 (probably came back under another name. Was kinda rude, which got him banned once in a while).
Kompili: Feb 2015 (big into the conspiracies)
Mighty d: June 2012 (was a prolific poster while he was here. Didn't have much to say that was interesting).
Smurf: Sept 2021 (nice guy. Probably down in Arizona enjoying the heat)
Logicalview: Mar 2021 (could be mean with some funny zingers)

Bpeep: 2019 (an active poster for many years before going silent suddenly)
Onestop67: Dec 2019 (It's been a while but I seem to recall that tI didn't like the guy but can't remember why now. )
Strwbrrydvl: Aug 2013 (a very intelligent lady. And one of the most personable people on cnet. Hopefully she is in good health and just too busy raising a family to post here).
PheonixWithin: Feb 2016 (where did he go?)
Libelle: July 2015 (one who like to create drama and couldn't stop talking about her little kid [not that there's anything wrong with that])

usquebaugh: June 2009 (crazy left-wing lesbian that
just disappeared one day long ago)
Bubalouie: April 2018 (probably our RVing somewhere)
Al Czervic: May 2015 (an older guy with a huge wealth of knowledge. I miss his insights on BC politics)
Omnitheo: Mar 2021 (smart guy for a lefty)
BriTer: Jun 2021 (comes and goes, probably smoking up meat right now)

omisimaw: Apr 2015 (I vaguely remember who this is. )
Star Light: May 2017 (friendly older lady who had moved to Vernon from somewhere outside BC. Invited me to meet her I think, but I said hell no)
Lightspeed: Mar 2021 (nice guy that decided to leave)
Nom_de_Plum: May 2018 (left the Okanagan and the forums at the same time it seems)
Dandynick5: Jan 2014 (I think this guy was into jokes)

Goatboy:Sept 2020 (interesting guy)
ILBT uh-huh: Aug 2011 (I don't remember who this is)
Bestside: May 2012 (would always get up in arms with local politics.)
Atomoa: May 2018 (probably came back 10 times over with other user names)
Mtnmn1: Oct 2010 (aggressive poster, which got himself banned like 10 times before getting the permanent boot)

Graham Adder: Apr 2019 (a bit too serious at times)
Born_again: Jan 2012 (smart guy, but really high on himself)
CoffeeFreak: Oct 2021 (nice lady with thoughtful posts)
dieseluphammerdown: Nov 2017 (never knew when to shut up and listen)
V-rated: Nov 2021 (uncomfortably flirty lady)
Woodenhead: July 2021 (usually only posts when the weather gets bad or when something interesting happens in Joe Rich)
Wow, that's quite the list! I like the commentary :130:
I haven't failed until I quit.

She was mean and aggressive and inappropriate on many occasions.

Haven’t seen posts from:
Smurf in over a year.
logicalview well over a year

I could go on.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

"The requested user does not exist"

To me that says they quit and came back as a new user or just a new name.

Uh no. I can click on the user just fine and it doesn't say banned. Not sure what you guys are doing.
