Every so often, someone on this board will ask, 'hey, whatever happened to so-and-so, don't hear from him/her anymore". I too wonder what happens to people who have stopped posting. I certainly have lost touch with loads of cyber friends who have disappeared from T2V. Is it from lack of interest, gambling losses, marital discord, Vegas burnout, new chapters in one's life, disenchantment, boredom, geographic changes, death (some of us actually knew a poster named "Andsen", who died), etc? The message board world will always be somewhat of a mystery, as we know fellow posters only via a screen. But, when you no longer hear from someone you have gotten to know over the years, it's like losing an acquaintance.
