I'm sad to see he is gone and curious to know what the circumstances of his leaving are. He is one reason I have stayed and I know he helped talk senseiman into sticking around.

This seems to have all happened during my last brief banning. I know CC1 was banned and then unbanned... but I was certain he was staying. What happened?

I was wondering if that wasn't why Glenn and others seem to have left or become less active also. I know it's hard to stay interested with so much negativity around, but this really is all sooo depressing...:(

a lot of old faces have left, and seem to have been replaced by fresh, obnoxious ones...

And I think we all already know the reason except for one person ...
Yeah, it's just unfortunate to surrender to unfairness that way I think is what everyone is saying...on the other hand if you don't want to be here it is an individual decision and there is only so much hassle one person should have to take ! ☝

He checks in on occasion, but doesn't post.

At the end of the day, its only a forum, life changes, so do people, who knows what the reasons are for CC1's percieved abscence, My gut feeling is he'll be back, or is lurking.

Impressive though that so many people think of a community of friends rather then just a place on the net, dispite all the problems, that has to be saying something is right about this place.

Good ol days !

I think the chat room had a lot to do with making JREF more then just an internet site. Many of the old time members spent a lot of hours in chat getting to really know each other and becoming close friends. Getting to know the person behind the "user name" makes the Forum more interesting I think.

I hadn't noticed that Glenn is missing. Glenn where are you?

And Tsuyoiko has been rather quiet... she's still around but not as much.

I miss you two.

In the words of Rochester van Jones, "Oh, boss, come now!"

He finally got tired of riding the yo-yo.

I've been on hiatus too. I've recently gotten a full-time job, and I still haven't adjusted to my new schedule. I haven't worked full-time in 9 years. Maybe I'll get it worked out eventually and be able to spend more time doing the things I used to enjoy, such as the forum.

There are other reasons why I haven't been as gung ho about the forum as I once was, but I'll let you draw your own conclusions...

I got some interesting 411 by pm. It seems a shame to lose people, especially intelligent people of quality, and some of the other characters that just add spice.

What is 411 ?

If there another forum where CCI (besides his own :p) and the others are hanging out, could someone please send me the address ?? 🙏 😊

411 = information. Shorthand slang. I have heard other forums mentioned, but have not found any. I don't think it is good netiquette to use one forum to pull members to another...
