    So I was cleaning out my PMs earlier and I came across a couple of names I haven't seen in a while. The biggest one was 'thinking of you.' Anyone know what happened to her? Who else is missing in action around here?

    His screen name is now Mike Flynn. He's still active.

    How about:
    moley
    Angus
    Jason Braatz (he's a moderator and has posted about twice in over a year)
    Dave Costelo
    Uforia (Mrs. Embellisher)

    Not quite. He left TB because he felt the internet (and TB in particular) were starting to take control of his life. So he stepped back. Nothing like "just a couple posts" to draw you back into "posting all the time."

    That's what I got from talking to him too. He said this -

    "I've been spending alot more time playing my bass, writing music, and wrestiling with web programming and computer crap. Hopefully I will even get a life at some point."

    However, the previous poster was also correct. He really didn't like being forced to reveal where he worked in his sig. The straw that broke the camel's back was when he had several posts edited, which IMO, weren't out of line. Sounds like he's doing well though.
