Quote from: Brian on February 03, 2023, 11:47:21 AMI said some candid things about him, but long after his permanent departure, from the first time everyone wondered why he had left.
Quote from: foxandpeng on February 03, 2023, 05:25:16 AMI appreciate that every site has strong personalities and passionately held opinions. Resultant conflicts or spats are inevitable in cyberspace because human nature is what it is. Having said that, I presently rarely post or visit GMG - although I don't have any interpersonal issues whatsoever, I don't enjoy the way in which members are sometimes treated or the tone of those conversations. Despite his undoubted culpability in this area, I also miss MI. I think the particular episode that precipitated his leaving was instrumental in my own stepping back, along with an observed series of particularly acerbic exchanges around the same time. I may feel differently about my involvement in the site over time, but I suspect others were equally saddened. No drama, hence no flouncing out with fanfares or recriminations. I doubt my absence was even really noted, all of which is fine. There is undoubtedly a great deal of good here.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 06, 2023, 11:39:41 AMI just got an alert saying that deprofundis has added me to their buddy list, but when I searched for deprofundis in the members list to send a message saying hello, nothing came up. What's going on?
Quote from: vandermolen on February 06, 2023, 12:04:28 PMWhat is a buddy list?
Quote from: Mapman on February 06, 2023, 12:12:23 PMIf you click on a username next to a post, there is an option on the user profile page to add the user to your "buddy list". I just added you to mine to test it. I haven't found anything else that it does yet.Edit: I've found one use for the buddy list. It is possible to only allow people on your buddy list (and administrators) to send you personal messages.
Quote from: brewski on February 06, 2023, 01:19:53 PMDeprofundis was a former member here, with many issues (as it turned out), whose account was deleted. Since that time, he has tried to re-register under different names.Apparently he added you to his buddy list, before his account was deleted (again). -Bruce
Quote from: Mandryka on February 06, 2023, 01:44:11 PMAh, I am disappointed that his behaviour led the moderators to the decision to delete his account.
Quote from: Florestan on February 07, 2023, 02:03:20 AMI had no idea his account(s) was/were deleted by the mods and honestly, I am surprised by that. He used to start half a dozen new threads every week and wrote the worst English I ever read but other than that I can't think of any real annoyance he created that might have justified a ban. His exclusive interest was Renaissance music and never posted in political threads. I am truly puzzled.
Quote from: Brian on February 07, 2023, 06:48:23 AMI daresay the moderators have seen a lot of things behind the scenes that they are too classy to disclose in public. Maybe they'll write tell-all memoirs some day.
Quote from: Maestro267 on February 07, 2023, 07:51:42 AMAfter snyprrr or whoever from back in the day, the most bizarre person I've ever encountered on a forum. And they were here for *years*...I wonder why their English didn't even remotely improve.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 07, 2023, 08:33:43 AMI am pretty certain that deprofundis is dyslexic. It isn't a question of his English, he had difficulty with spelling in his native language.
