    I got like 10 myspace e-mails asking what had happened to Benson.

    It was news to me, so I searched for his profile here and it's been removed - - even the comments he posted in all the forum threads. icon_confused.gif

    strange....icon_question.gif

    Hope he's doing ok.

    Is he the one that decided to take a break when he reached Post #1000? Somebody just announced that.

    Yes he is Caslon4000. New job responsibilities, plus he felt he was spending too much time on RJ.

    He made an announcement last week about taking some time off. He said he'll be back.

    I'm just wondering why anyone would have to make an "announcement" that they'd leave a bulletin board site like this.

    Why not just take a break, but leave your profile up?

    If someone sends you an RJ email, you'd get notified to your regular email address, after all. Some of us have taken breaks from checking in here when other things are going on, and don't feel the necessity of making an "announcement."

    No criticism of DjBens77 intended. I am just wondering why the drama. Seriously.

    It might be a way to make themselves accountable to their decision - if they don't tell anyone, no one will know if they break their resolution and start posting again after one day. But if they make it public, they're "forced," in a way, to stick to it.

    He didn't "make an announcement." He just said he was gonna bail for awhile cause he was busy with other stuff...sheesh.

    besides...I made him post that. I told him if he didn't I'd turn the hose on him again. He's been tied up in my basement ever since.

    what is the big deal?

    No big deal, tommy. Sorry if that bothered you, really.

    Just commenting that if everyone posted here when they got busy with other stuff, we'd have a whole raft of forum posts. Since others don't do it, I wondered why we heard about his taking time off; that's all.

    I dont find it that odd for a frequent participator to say that he is dropping out for good or for a while. Although our relationships are long distance, we still know each other on here. Some we know better than others. Some we enjoy more than others. But over time, we still form bonds and telerelate. If one of the frequent participators were to disappear unannounced, I am sure people would notice, ask what happened, and, those most bonded to him, miss the guy.

    According to tommy, he is bonded to a chair in the basement, I hope he is having fun. I don't know what kind of host tommy is.

    Well, I did hear something about "DJBens77" from the other tenents, but I'm not one to divulge rumors.

    My roommate had mentioned news about him before he went to work two weeks ago.

    I just met DjBens77 last thrursday night - we were supposed to hang out on the 4th, but my nap took too long and I forgot. Jerry told me his real name, but I don't know if it's a first or last.

    Knocking on his door seems tempting - but perhaps not.
