This one felt different.

It also came a few weeks after I’d persuaded him not to leave, so the feelings were building up.

He hasn't deleted his account, there still might be the chance he could return some day. I hope so, because he has always been a very valuable member of this forum.

Has anyone heard from Andre? He hasn't logged in since August 21, and I don't remember him mentioning anything about traveling.

Mirror Image is still active at Steve Hoffman forum, half dozen posts today. You could try there.
Thank you.

I noticed Andre was logged in yesterday, after 4 weeks absence.

More to the point, although Andre logged in on Sept 17, he has not made a post since August 12. There are those who leave the site with grand, histrionic declarations, and there are those who just vanish, almost in mid sentence.

This is why the return of Keemun gives me hope. Among the sudden disappearances, I miss Lethevich and Opus106.

I'm constantly tortured by the loss of Lethevich, because her name keeps appearing as the member who started "The Unimportant News Thread." Gone since January 2013, but not forgotten. Looking at ancient threads is always an interesting exercise, because of the disappeared posters that you come across (and ones still here).

+1 Arthur. I was looking at some of her comments in a thread yesterday. Yes, sometimes it's sad looking at old threads as so many contributors have disappeared for whatever reason.

Still sad to see him gone, bud.

I’m sure you are. I’m less sure about some other people’s feelings on the matter.
