    Too bad. He is a brilliant scientist (post doc.) who cares passionately about gay rights. He is contentious at times, but his heart is in the right place. (He got me to read The Wife of Bath's Tale). Hopefully he's just swamped with work and will be back someday.

    *Sigh*

    He restores my faith in humanity when all around me I see idiots

    I think he's feeling disengaged with RJ to date

    I speak to him very often. He just went to bed after doing a lot of very complicated math that disproved a particular theory. The day of math "turned his brain to mush" and he retired for the night.

    Apart from that he is doing well.

    Tigertim was always thoughtful and respectful of his opponents. His head was in the clouds alot, but that just made his contributions all the more interesting. I will miss him.

    A RJ contributor that I could learn from, since science (especially physics) is not my speciality. Hopefully he will return one day.

    That may be - but to knock Tim for being old is absurd - before he's even 30.

    It's okay. It would be good if a few RJ'ers left - but not Tim. He was one of the brightest guys I've ever met........he actually changed my mind about important issues - political especially. Hopefully he'll find time to return.

    I don't think Tim ever agreed with me on anything, but he was always respectful, and I liked that about him. As someone said above I thought he had his head in the clouds (no offence Tim).

    I hope he is OK.

    Mike

    By the way, I think he is just hiding.

    He needed a break from RJ... one fight he had in particular was too contentious.

    It's a good reminder to keep it civil. Now we have to wait for such a wonderful guy to start posting again!

    I wasn't always bright enough to completely follow what he was saying sometimes, but I enjoyed reading it anyway.

    Tim is a great guy, and has had a lot of great contributions of substance to add to the forums. We need guys that can post some thoughtful comments and elevate the discussions.

    If that's being a "boring old guy", I wish we had more boring old guys on here.

    Well that is unfortunate. He certainly added something to this site.
    I hope he considers a return much like ZDrew.

    He is also sick with a cold at the moment. Unfortunately this is not a problem he can solve with advanced mathematics.

    But it could eventually be solved by science if the latest news is anything to go by. Just imagine all those cold "remedies" that would become obsolete.

    Think about all the jobs that will be lost. It is said that vitamin C will cure colds and flue, many infections in fact. The question is, why is it not used?
