Missing person?

I know it's tempting fate, but whatever happened to thisoldman? Remember him? I used to really enjoy his posts!  Grin

Re: Missing person?

and "pierre_pierre" disappeared on 26/09/2012 without any hint of going  Undecided
I suspect "WildRose52" was abducted by aliens, or was assimilated by a conspiracy theory cult  Shocked

Re: Missing person?

I asked about tom a while back and got a few negative replies. Sure he was full of conspiracy theories but he seemed a decent enough person other than that.

Re: Missing person?

I was thinking the other day of posting a topic on a very similar note.
One never knows what has happened to such people as pierre_pierre, thisoldman, et al. and due to data protection PN staff can't even divulge if they passed away.
Whether you liked or hated their posts they contributed in many ways to the forums and helped make it an interesting, if sometimes frustrating place, to hang out.
All we can do is hope that they are OK and living their lives as peacefully and enjoyably as one can.
This is probably a stupid idea but I was wondering if an option could be set where, should a member become desceased, he/she has given permission in advance for the fourm to be informed. That way we could all pay our respects rather than simply speculate where they are.

or in the case of WildRose52 speculate what planet she was on - when she was still here !  Shocked

Re: Missing person?

Does any one know why they stopped the milk cartons with missing persons on them? I always thought that was a brilliantly clever way of getting word out to millions of people.

Re: Missing person?

What happened to JoJo too? - She used to post regularly here and in the broadband forum but I've not seen her for ages.
According to her profile she was last online on the 26th of last month but hasn't posted since 30/12/12 (according to the show last posts link / search).
Seems like they're dropping like flies around here..

Re: Missing person?

It's widespread in the USA but it never really took off here. They did trial it years ago and every now and then I'd see a milk carton with it but it wasn't exactly common.. well not round my way anyway.
