When AK members become friends to us, what might happen quite often, and those long time members disappear after 2000 or 5000 or more posts apruptly I ask myself: What might have happened to that friend - after you got no answer on pm requests. Two of my friends disappeard this year, that makes me pensive. On the other hand, I have to accept that. We do not know what might have occured in the life of member X and there are so many things that might have ended the forum activity - an accident, sudden poverty, illness, death. There might be of course also the one or other less dramatic reason. Anyway I ask myself "Where is he just now in this moment? Is he at least okay so far?" But I have to accept that I will get no answer. I think some of you made similar experiences. Do you?
