    I disappeared for 5 or 6 years at one point. AK was in my bookmarks but I found it too daunting of a task to jump back in.

    Stuff just happens for no reason sometimes

    Ken did not post for a very long time, James. I fear that he will never return.

    Same here.

    Once Ken made a post where he didn't like that his post had been edited which could explain his absence.

    There have been too many occasions where forum members have been nasty and posts have been edited by our dedicated moderators who keep AK a nice place.:)

    Tapehead47 has been missing since August, 2017. I always enjoyed his posts.

    Wiggy ran afoul of the mods about four years ago and left by mutual agreement. I miss him.

    Very surprised to hear that.

    Another former prominent member Arkay hasn't been around in a while.

    I am sorry to tell you that Arkay will never return, as he wrote to me in a private message back then.

    Damn, all these long timers missing makes me wonder - Why would ANYONE allow themselves to feel slighted so badly that they leave?

    I've simply never had an experience that bad here.

    Thanks Chris for informing me about Ken. Arkay as well. I still wish Pandovski was around. Such a cutup.

    Pandovski. Right. He was so damned cool.

    I won't tell you more on theses cases in public, so - pm sent.

    I've never had a sour experience with anyone on AK.

    I drifted off in 2011 because I am not all that involved with audio equipment, having purchased everything I own in the early/mid 70's and never upgraded from that point . You can only say so much about "old stuff" before sounding boring

    At that time, many of the threads were dealing with modern equipment and music that I have no connection with.

    After a year away I forgot about AK.

    When I returned last year, I once again, found some old friends and just started back up as though 6 years were just yesterday.

    This is the mark of an exceptional community and I am very comfortable here now.

    I do too. He's a local, but about an hour away. He's been over here and I've been over there. I spoke with him briefly about using some pics for Kegger's memorial, but not since.

    Perhaps I'll look him up this summer and pay him a visit; I always enjoyed his company.
