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).
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

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.

True - and even a possible explanation ... :)

I've communicated with him outside of GMG. He has expressed the opinion that GMG is not hospitable so I think he has simply lost interest in participating. He deleted his facebook about a year ago because of dissatisfaction with facebook's conduct. He has a web site which he hasn't updated recently. I think he has scaled back his social media participation generally. Travel is a big part of his life so I imagine the pandemic and its travel restrictions has been a big burden for him.

Overall, that's good to hear however, since there was also an issue with health.

I wasn't aware of a health issue. Last I heard from him was a year ago so I don't have any "data" relating to that issue. I also hope he is ok.

He is under treatment for cancer if I recall correctly. Hopefully everything's alright with him.

Members come and go, but I've learned not to worry about it --- they'll be back or they won't. I've been trying my best to just get on with things recently.

some guy

I am "OK," as far as that goes.

I still have cancer, and also I broke my back recently.

But I am back in Europe and so relatively content. I take my meds and feel fine, as fine as possible.

Thanks for asking! Apparently, I've been lurking just on the off-chance that someone would ask.  :)

Very good to hear from you, and happy travels/experiences !

Good thing someone did! All the best.
