    How do you guys deal with it?
    I believe most of you already know that JamieFord has said goodbye on his profile.
    Yes, I know that`s his desire and I have to respect that...
    But it hurts....he was a smart, funny, always helpful and "if you feel down, i will fix your mood" guy.
    I have never met Jamie in real life, I probably would have never met Jamie in real life, but i feel such a big void in my heart...
    I only hope he will pop in chat sometimes

    You are such a nice guy luka. One more example that true friendships can be built on the internet.

    I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment. You didn't exchange email addy's or anything?

    This is the fucking hotel California. You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Nobody goes away for good, even the people who are supposedly banned for life.

    Well why don't you email or PM him and ask for his private email addy? If you're true friends you'l stay in touch by email :smile:

    Other then that, people come and go....this is true both in real life and on the internet. But I find that all the people who are true friends are the ones I end up staying in touch with.

    Yeh, I miss the dude already. I'm quite shocked by what a big impact it's had on me.

    I'd love to keep in touch with him, but from what I hear, he doesnt want to - he's cancelled his msn and yahoo accounts.:(

    I've had a friend or two leave, people who meant alot to me.

    It hurts a ton, luka. What can you do, you ask? The best thing to do, is take things one day at a time. If they allow for conversation on Yahoo/msn, that's awsome, but if they are making a clean break, sometimes you just have to accept their wishes and remember them as the amazing people they were.

    I do think it shows you can make good mates online - it's real ppl we're interacting with, after all.

    Although it's no consolation, i find it easier to be able to say goodbye, swop contact details etc. It's worse when friends have been banned ,no goodbyes, instant cut offs, it takes a while to get over that.

    I believe that is true.
    And I believe he is really not coming back

    It happens. Sometimes you get used to it, sometimes you don't.

    Many, perhaps most, of the posters who I enjoyed reading the most have left the site or drastically scaled back their contributions. I wouldn't call them friends, simply because I never met them and never went beyond thread interaction and very infrequent PMs with most of them.

    My interest in LPSG waxes and wanes, as interesting (new) people come and go.

    I am fairly sure that a significant number of the membership aren't sure whether they are here or not.
