    Has Osiris left the room?

    He hasn't posted in the last day. (He's been posting 13 times a day on average.)

    In his latest blog entry, he says: "Douglas Adams said it best .... So long and thanks for all the fish. Be well and take care."

    In his signature, he repeats the Adams remark, and adds: "Don't PM me. I won't reply."

    In his profile, when referring to his blog, he titles it: "Musings of a former LPSG member."

    In his biography, he says: "No longer here."

    I'm often out of the loop, but this seems sudden.

    I didn't know Osiris well, but liked him. Did all the turmoil and commotion on the board drive him off?

    Yes, he's gone. And yes, it's due to the turmoil and commotion of the boards.

    Damn! I hadn't noticed anything.

    Thanks for pointing this out, Rubi. Whatever it's about, I hope he comes back. We need all the heart and brains we can find around here.

    What turmoil are we referring to? I am pretty selective about the threads I read. Did I miss something interesting or was it something unfortunate? Yes, I am often clueless like this.

    His comments on my blog were always so supportive. I hope he comes back but I'm going to miss him.

    Yes Osiris has gone, he sent pm's saying bye bye to some of us, he didn't make a farewell thread because he didn't want to be the subject of loads of gossip. In the pm's he said we were to use the information as we see fit - he simply wasn't finding it any fun any more, and has other forums that require his attention. Nothing complicated.

    Osiris was a nice guy who will be missed, he treated everyone as he wanted to be treated. Let's respect him for what he was and not turn this thread into a post mortem or an attack.

    That's unfortunate. As a relatively new father myself, I enjoyed reading his musings about his family, even if I didn't always agree with him. I wish him the best. I certainly will miss him.

    He didn't mention anything specific, I think he just basically felt as though the board was getting a little too rough and that he wasn't enjoying it anymore. Unfortunately, I've been feeling the same way, but I haven't yet made the decision to leave.

    I admit it's getting harder to post. LPSG doesn't feel as warm and safe as it used to as I feel the trolls and assholes are getting the upper hand. I'm not at the point of leaving yet though the departures of late really do make me sad. Doc, MZ, DJG, Burnsie, Earl, BD (banned yeah, but still...), it's disheartening. If I had just joined and seen the crap going on now I wouldn't begin to post. These last few weeks have been awful and the decline since summer has been precipitous.

    If I owned this board, which I don't, I'd just clean out the assholes using my royal prerogative. We need some stability and direction.
