I was just thinking about how traffic has dropped off on this website. The nice thing about it is that it forms a tighter bunch. The downside is the lessened interactions.

I was just thinking about people who don't post anymore that I miss.

TNS, Kelleye (Did I spell that right?)

I know there are others. Who else?

Vegan Joe, wherever you are, you will always have a special place in my heart.

Been wondering what happened to Clueless Git and Happy Hippy. Lots of older post I have looked through have members who stopped posting years ago. Makes me wonder if there's a more hip forum they went to or something. Not that this one isn't hip, but I suppose an ideal hip forum for me would be a little darker, but not crazy dark like when I tried to hang out on an ALF forum years ago.

I figured as much. What about his other incarnations? Don't you miss them too?

I thought I saw a recent post by him.

There used to be a person who had a praying mantis as her avatar. I think it was Ama-something-or-other.

If you want some real blasts from the past, try the old MIA thread:

Chelsea aka animallover7249 I miss beachbnny posting regularly, she's a sweetie.

I have some of the people who used to post here on my FB account, but I do miss them posting on VB.


And Tame.

There were some folks that used to hang out in the compost heap, Kenickie, Savannah and some others who's names I don't recall. It's been pretty quiet in that forum recently.

I think some people may just be enjoying their summer outside.

Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.

Errm... Tame is one of the reasons I became disenchanted with Veggieboards. His attitude and approach to discussion was often inflammatory and caused a lot of discomfort. There were Tame supporters and Tame opponents. I tried hard to sit on the fence, but wound up not wanting to deal with the drama and silently backed away from the website.

I remember hearing that in a Chicago meetup that he was extremely personable and nice to be around. I just wish that was the case on the forums.

Oh, so many have come and gone, but some stand out from my time on VB: Soilman, Tame, ebola (a.k.a. Gnome Chomsky), bethanie, Loki, that German lady whose name eludes me at the moment and others.

I don't think Savannah is gone for good, but who knows ...

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

I know he caused a lot of trouble, but sometimes his posts were really smart and made me laugh. I know what you mean though.

Yes, BC is one that I miss too. Poppy, I saw her recently and I don't know who Tori is.

I haven't seen suicideblonde on here for a while. I think the software switch and diminished slut thread threw her off.
Treehugger hasn't posted much lately but I don't think she's gone forever.

And I thought Kellye was an androgyne who was born female?

don't take my life away, don't take my life away.

I'm pretty sure s/he mentioned being an androgyne at some point. Maybe I just assumed the female part.
