    You didn't specify to what you are responding. You have always thought he was interesting and intelligent or always thought he sounds like my dad? :)

    Thanks for a good laugh!

    I completely agree. I actually quite value his opinion and insight.

    I thought I saw him reply to something a couple days ago.

    I figured as much, but I did enjoy some laughter at the ambiguity.

    Seriously, I hope all is well with him whatever is distracting him for the time being.

    Do you suppose this is the reason I couldn't understand a word from the guy I was going to offer to try to pull out of the ditch a while ago?

    If you don't have something civil to offer, it might be a good idea to offer nothing. BFF has been with us a very long time and while each of us has debated with him at some point, he's a great person and I hope we see him back soon.

    Last time he posted was a week ago, on a Sunday afternoon. Something is wrong.

    I Googled his farm name and see an address/phone number... I hope that one of his longtime pals here will give him or his wife a call soon and let him know we are thinking of him and hoping that he is alright.

    (Because I don't really "know" him all that well, I didn't want to creep them out by calling him, myself.)

    I wouldn't jump the gun so fast. It's only been a week. Give the guy some privacy.

    As I mentioned in my post, I would not call him because I don't really "know" him. (That would be a job for one of his pals to do at their discretion of course.)

    Ha ha! One week to a normal poster = a month Bear-time. He is the most prolific poster on the board (what, about 10-20 posts a day?)

    I knew you wouldn't call him, I just didn't want anyone else to get the idea to. :)

    I see nothing wrong with someone calling. It only takes minutes for something bad to happen. Checking in is what homesteaders and neighbors do. It would hurt nothing and no one.

    Well, maybe, HT should have a special alert pop-up for members who haven't checked in within the past week.

    Given the number of registered members compared with the number of people we actually see post, I would imagine that could be one very busy pop-up box! :)

    More compelling evidence that the forum moderators are not neutral.

    It's not a neutrality issue, personal attacks violate HT rules. If you can find something in the rules about allowing personal attacks of specific members, I'll be glad to reverse my position.

    I don't know if our software does such a thing but I can check. It always concerns me when consistent members don't follow their usual pattern.
