Doubtful.

People have other things they become interested in and just don't have time for prior activities.

Don't know. Why don't you try it and see if we miss you.

Who knows. People come and go on the forum and leaving can be for any number of reasons.

I sometimes give myself a timeout from this place but I don't care enough about people in here to worry whether or not they'll miss me.

Is this about anyone in particular? I didn't think anybody ever left here.

If I donít post for like a day, I start to get texts and phone calls and emails from all of my loyal peeps wondering where their beloved Great One is. They need me.
Heavy is the head...... you can believe that.

With the high post count you got I'm surprised the site doesn't shut down when you're busy.

many here in this section are either self employed or retired. The self employed go in spurts of when they have to work hard and when they can screw off. For me, that occurs multiple times per day based upon when the phone is going crazy. this board is my sanity check when its crazy busy. Reviewing a few threads here gives me perspective.
