    Whatever Happened to......

    Notice how some people are quite active here on Cyburbia for a while and then mysteriously disappear? Some can be accounted for (e.g. DecaturHawk succumbed to the Dark Side so he has no time to post), others you just wonder about. Like, whatever happend to El Feo? or Jeff? Maybe Starrdarcy will stage a triumphant return?

The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Ironically, during that huuuge 10 minute absence, I was preparing a response to one of his posts!

    I, too, miss ablarc. Despite being a bit hard on the job responsibilities of planners, I found his essays and ruminations very insightful.

    He's probably got a crap-load of work since where he lives is getting all those new Buffalo transplants.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Hi - I have been over busy with thankless tasks for the man - in fact I was the man for an extended period, even made an application to be the man permanently but missed out to a more experienced, skilled and qualified candidate. Darn objective selection criteria!

    I will try to be more attentive and thanks Gedunker for thinking of me.

    I know I'm one who tends to come and go for somewhat long periods of time. It usually depends on the threads -- if they interest me, I'll stay for awhile; if not, I'm gone pretty quick.

    Would it do any good if I rang up the powers that be and said that I was the illegitimate yankee love-child of the person the objective selection criteria chose who is looking to legitimize his existence through a loud public media campaign that aims to embarrass his employer and community until they select rem as their new and rightful "The Man"?

    Stop by as you have time. I'll keep the lights on.

    And I think he left and asked to get banned... or something like that...

    Jeff does come around here from time to time though...

    Methinks that Starrdarcy did try to come back, with a different handle. He had an interesting way of presenting his posts.

    You just can't control these folks who create these fake cities.
