Missing Members

Post by BigAl52 » Sun Mar 29, 2020 10:54 am

Just like to say Thanks Dave for putting this sub forum in here. Its been mentioned by several active members to have a place to allow us to mention several members who havent been on line in quite sometime. Just like to say that I miss Deadwood Dutch, Les and Henry 88. Im sure there are others here who feel the same way.

Agreed, Al. It's also a good place to go for anyone who has been away for a while. Both to see they have been missed, plus "re-introduce" themselves if they want. Dave done good. :)

I knew Deadwood Dutch the best and wondered if anyone ever found out what happened to him. I know that some tried. I mentioned the other day that just out of co-incidence I had just researched his last few posts. Everything seemed fine with him at that time.

I go to quite a few gun shows shows in the area where Dutch lived. I never had his real name but asked some of the vendors that lived in the same area if they knew a man that maybe used the screen name Deadwood Dutch. I was hoping he used that as a nick name or one of the guys there knew him from him being on here or another gun forum. I never got any positive answers from a single guy from the area shows where Dutch was from. I do miss him on here. He was a very nice member.

Maybe Dave will chime in but I think Dave went to the extent of writing him a letter and never heard back.

It not always an issue with the person - people leave forums for a variety of reasons.

Some of you have indicated this is the 'only' forum you are a member of and that's fine but understand there are many gun forums and people will gravitate to where they feel the best 'fit' for their personality, likes/dislikes, beliefs etc.

Some forums offer too little in the way of diversity and some people prefer a larger topic 'base', as well as a larger membership.

Forums are like a 'clubhouse' where people meet to discuss not only the primary, 'base' topics of the forum but other things as well.

Some people build 'relationships' on forums and like to expand them through a common 'core' of communication with a variety of members and a limited content does not allow for this and some get bored and move on.

I have read (several times) on this forum where it has been mentioned 'there are other forums for that' (for certain topics to be posted/discussed) and it's possible some members have taken that suggestion and moved on.

...nice to be missed and remembered fondly though. We should all be so lucky when the time comes. :)
