    devoted to the question, in fact.

    Haven't heard an answer, personally. Somebody said they had an email address and were gonna try contacting that way, but I don't know if it was successful or not.

    May want to do a text search for comments/diaries with his username to find out for sure how the inquiries panned-out.

      This time I got G2geek: Why the two-month absence? by cotterperson.

      Several comments in there and a link to a thread in this 12/27 Midday open diary.

      koNko had known G2 had an asian client, thought he might be on a trip and was going to PM on the 28th.

      Nothing else.

      When Kos changed the TTFN and GBCW rules, I suggested if folks are going to be absent for awhile and don't want to do a diary, the profile on their home page could be edited to explain whatever they want known.

      I would prefer admin check his personal email. Others may know the reason and concern.

      •  Now that I recall (3+ / 0-)

        A couple of diaries were posted and later deleted after suggestions to do so in order to avoid the potential repeat of an incident involving the uninvited visit by concerned Kossacks to a long-absent user they were worried about. It didn't end well, apparently.

        So those diaries wouldn't show up. But the other instances you list are indeed familiar to me.

        I don't know what else to say, aside from the fact that admin will likely be reluctant if not completely opposed to any sort of attempt at contact. It's just not somewhere they want to go.

        Users make their own decisions regarding their participation here, though I recognize that people get concerned about the well-being of others with whom they've come to know and interact with regularly.

          visit and would not have considered going to that extent unless someone had already been in contact enough. In which case they would have had a phone number.

          Hopefully one of these days we will have a surprise return.

            of the incident as a result of the inquiries about G2Geek, so you now know about as much as I do. Probably better that way. ;)

            In any case, you're not alone in hoping for his well-being and eventual return. :)
