    It's occured to me that I've been here quite a while and in that time posters have come and gone. It's becoming a genrational thing but also some have sadly passed on since 2008 and my enrolment.

    Outside of RHP we are probably quite different, maybe. I know I am. But within these walls , within these ranks and files, we share a time bound experience. Good or bad.

    Peace and best wishes to you all.

    "Outside of RHP we are probably quite different, maybe. I know I am. But within these walls..." divegeester, my friend, there may be some site members who portray personas different from themselves; however, should we ever meet in person you would discover yours truly to be exactly the same as him you knew only more so in the best sense of the phrase. Many dozens of phone conversations since July, 2007, with people whom you know by their RHP Nicknames attest to this reality.

    The posters you THINK have come and gone, might very well still be here. You may not know them now by their new appearance.

    I agree it is always sad when someone actually passes especially if you shared a lot with that person.

    I am not use to sentimental posts from you. I am not saying that is a bad thing! 😉

    New technology truly is astonishing — they must have invented cut & paste for the human voice.

    Perhaps time fades your memory, my friend. The MODS didn't like DRAMA!!! 😉

    One of several great Who pieces. I wonder why Roger Daltrey hasn't done anything about his claim "I hope I die before I get old" because he's about 70.

    There is something that has earned the name "online disinhibition effect." In the off-line world, we learn certain motivations to contain our feelings and to temper the way we express them. Some of those motivations are lacking online. For example, we are anonymous, most of us, our reputation is masked by screen names, and we don't work with or share a neighborhood with one another. We don't express ourselves except in writing, which can make for stronger language, and we don't get feedback immediately, or we can ignore it. Also, we are free to state our firm political, religious, etc. positions without any real consequence.

    I do believe you are much the same person off-line, because you present an even-temperedness online. You take some pretty heavy negativity quite well.

    The 'off-line-world inhibition effect' has its drawbacks too.
