I agree - to me it seems quite aggressive, especially if done without any explanation, but others may well disagree. Isn't there some modern expression for this - like 'deleting' someone?

I'm not sure, Jeffrey, but it is a bit strange. Ken B left in a similar way without much explanation and, of course, cilgwyn who remains a complete mystery.

Well, that because you:
   1: knew you'd come back;
   2: are too lazy...

Hey Paul! Long-time, no see! And yes to both. :D

Deleting your account does not result in the deletion of any posts. I just means you can't log in anymore, you can't receive PMs and members cannot see a list of your posts linked to your member profile.
Fair enough. Thanks for the explanation.

You know, it's been strange seeing Paul (springrite) come back and then just disappear. I hope he's okay. He hasn't posted anything in months with the exception of the reply he made to one of my posts in this thread.

Yes, I hope so too John.

Hasn't he always been a bit intermittent? I have memories of him sometimes referring to life (yes, some people have those apparently).

Yes, I suppose so, but it's just strange seeing him pop up out of the blue to post to one of my posts and then disappear again.
