On the subject of seemingly missing members, we have thousands of members, so there are also many reasons why people seem to disappear from the forums. Sometimes people lose access to a computer. Some people have what I would call a "burn time" and just stop posting because they get bored or due to other unknown reasons. Sometimes they stop posting for awhile and then come back. Some people are too busy with work, life or school. These last three things are the most common reason why people seem to disappear. The least common are people who didn't follow the rules, (on a continuous basis) and got banned. There are also those who feel disgruntled and leave without us banning them, which is also very rare. Nevertheless, it's our policy not
to discuss members who possibly fit into these last two categories. It's also not fair either, as it may not be true. That person may be absent for any of the other reasons above. If you want to know how a member is doing, you should contact that person privately through pm's or email. This is one of our oldest rules. People love getting mail from people they know. I know I do.
