Where are these old faithfuls?
« on: April 05, 2020, 03:30:15 pm »
So I was reading through a few old posts thisw eekend and it's sad to see how many of the "old" members that always posted here, have become either lurkers or just quietly faded away.

@Kerritz
@volroom
@Road Hog
@Draad
@Ratt
@Poffmuis (emigrated)
@BlueBull2007 (here now and then)
@Difflock
@Draadwerk
@Lord Knormoer

Plenty of others too.  Emigration and economic hard times have certainly taken their toll.  Maybe too much forum bickering and bitchiness?  I don't know but I miss some of the guys.

Dis seker maar die verloop van die lewe en 'n forum, selfs 'n vriendekring maak ook maar so.  Maar hier is 'n hele klomp manne wat sommer so stilstil weggeraak het.

He stripped his moer completely with Kilroy and a few other guys a while back.  I didn't blame him but I miss his intelligence and wide range of interests here.  Especially his SADF input.

Left of his own volition I understand, but the forum suffered a loss with the departure of Veldtbrand.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

Me too. He has a way with words which is sorely missed.

Most of those mentioned were intelligent people who contributed sense to the forum. I suppose it got tiring all the time to search for sensible threads to participate in. As its going at the moment.
