    Sheesh... I step away for a few minutes to eat dinner and miss all the fun.
    Who went away?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I guess this forum is dying after all.

    Just when Paul is finally getting his post count up to par.

    I don't have time to keep track of all the comings and goings, so never know who's gone missing. Who?

    OK, that tells me who. Why do members let themselves get so out of control to be banned?

    What was the wee one's undoing? A personal swipe? Any other casualties?

    i don’t get it
    here’s a longtime contributor,
    more than twenty years. . .
    who for ever posted quality material
    on wide varieties of subjects
    boats, travel, history, photography, culture, and lack there of
    had a quick wit, was funny, gave as good as he got in debate and discourse
    was valued here
    and had genuine off forum relationships of real value’
    could be counted on to lend a hand or money if need to be. . .

    how’s a guy like that go completely off the rails
    become troll, and an overly vitriolic one at that
    bigoted, sexist, vulgar. . .
    mean

    did we, as a community
    fail him?

    i used to count the man my friend
    he was on the list of forum members i genuinely wanted to meet

    No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
    if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
    is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
    well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
    own were; any man's death diminishes me,
    because I am involved in mankind.
    And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

    Hmm, I noticed a few odd gaps in the Mexico thread. Seems the IWTBNG is gone for now.

    Paul I feel the same way I was one of the last to draw his ire and mostly took his past disputes with others as everyone having little hissy fits.

    I did notice a difference when he moved with the direction and focus of his lens had change to something a bit more creepy IMHO. His skin also seemed too thin out in Thailand. In the end he unfriended me on social media and then became his focus for a brief time. Honestly I hope he can get his Conrad sorted and leave the heart of darkness behind.

    I feel the same way Paul, a sad loss of his own doing, but there was an edge to his posts for a long time before he strayed into I don't know what.

    This, on any thread where any one challenged him.
