I wonder why HIPster didn't continue contributing on this forum anymore.
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.

He probably left around the time that US politics were seeping into the music threads. Many members left around this time, so around 2017 or so.

I'm sorry about that as well. Our musical tastes were different but we had a v nice PM exchange at one time. I know that he became the father of twins a few years ago, so I guess that they keep him busy!

He was posting until 2020.

I guess PD/Pohjolas Daughter must be busy with other things; usually quite active, but hasn't been around for a couple of weeks ...

Lost in Tuonela again? I hope that she returns soon.

Indeed! A kind, welcoming, positive voice on GMG whose absence has kept the cat thread woefully dusty. I hope all is well with her!  :)

I'm somewhat worried about PD. She registered November 2018 and posted almost every single day until April 30. 2022. Since then, she has not posted at all.

Yes, I agree. I sent her a PM but no reply. I hope that she is ok. She helped keep the favourite walk thread alive as well as the cat thread and was a very active, good-natured, and frequent contributor.
