    Remembering those players who were highly regarded and otherwise notable. Their names disappear from the roles after being inactive for a few months.

    Luck - He passed recently, was respected by all, well remembered

    Grampy Bobby - One of the most prominent members in the forums. He was highly regarded by many. He started numerous entertaining threads that were thought provoking. He was a moralist. He also irked numerous members; however, those who he annoyed were often annoying themselves. No one was ever forced to read a forum posting. He has been deeply missed for more than a year.

    Thank you for this thread. I didn't know Luck, never played him. I knew Grampy Bobby a little by reading his posts, he was very clear about what his opinions were.
    I miss him as I do with other players who stood out.

    I can see how there have been sincere attachments formed in these Forums and I am encouraged.
    I sometimes regret that I have come to it so late in the day.
    I am sorry for the loss of any valuable contributor to RHP.

    Mike Lomax (mikelom) who died 4 years ago. A decent, gentle man who didn't deserve the bad things that life handed to him at the end.

    I agree Bob, Mike, & luck were gentlemen in ever sense of the word.

    I feel fortunate to have known them.

    I remember him he was massive on this forum the last time I was a regular here. He was a bit marmite but I love marmite and he very open emotionally speaking. But love him or loathe him he brought a definite buzz to this forum. I didn’t realise he had passed I assumed he had found something less stressful to occupy his time.

    He did not find it stressful, actually he enjoyed the banter.

    Yes, I second Mike and Bobby. I corresponded with Bobby apart from the forums.

    I did not know Luck.

    Luck and I played many game on here. He was always a gentleman win or lose. Quick to give a complement and a very modest fellow. He didn't speak much in the forums.
    I chatted with him a fair amount during games.

    I think the mods are just slower to act over the weekend.

    As for the forum, I think we all recognize a sad chap seeking attention when we see one.

    There have been alerts put in. I think the moderation is a little slower on the weekends.

    EDIT: I see goad already beat me to it.
