I'm back finally, as well...

Good to see you, one of our few Wagnerites, back with us again!

Utterly unique, and he was always a great read. I miss him.

Absolutely! I miss his posts with their contextual information very much. I found his inexplicable departure disconcerting. I'm ever hopeful that Pohjola's Daughter will find her way out of Tuonela as well.

Just noticed, after going back to the "Blown Away" thread to talk to Cato and SymphonicAddict about Sibelius 7, that the latter has left us.

That is a pity. I liked SymphonicAddict's contributions.

Oh dear! I was very alarmed to log in today to see Cesar (SymphonicAddict) listed as a Guest! What on earth happened to him?! ??? :(

What?!?!? SymphonicAddict is gone? :-\ That’s really a shame. I liked his posts a lot and I truly felt that I was getting closer to him with the Sibelius chats we had. I do hope he reconsiders and comes back, but, in the meantime, he will be missed.

Alarmed to hear that Symphonic Addict has left. He possessed a deep knowledge of music.

I can't imagine what could have made him take such a radical decision. This is very similar to cylgwin's departure.

To briefly answer (not!) the questions concerning the departure of SA, all I can say is that he left behind no manifesto with the Mods declaring his intentions, nor blaming it all on MI & Florestan, or any such thing. I read his latest posts and detected no sign of discord. Best thing is to not speculate, since there is little to go by, and if you received info in a private message, remember it's private for a reason. Perhaps he will return as abruptly as he left, perhaps he won't... :-\
