Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I'm posting this as sort of electronic "milk carton". A well known member of our community, G2Geek, hasn't been seen on the site in more than 5 weeks. Even for G2 that's a long time. Some kosmail attempts to reach him haven't turned up anything.

Now given what I know of G2 this could be "normal" behavior. But still, it's been a long gap and his comment history before he left gave no indication that he'd be gone for a long time. So while I'm not truly worrying about his state of being I'm somewhat concerned. Call it a 4 on 10 point scale of worry.

If anyone does know how to contact G2 in meatspace I hope you can reach him and let us know he's alright.

Important note

Do not, under any circumstances, try to contact G2Geek in the real world. Unless you know him personally it would be a form of "outing" and against the rules of the site and a violation of the trust G2 puts in all of us. Further, no wild speculating on his state, do not call the emergency people in his area. There is no reason to do this. This is just a friendly (and hopefully very brief) "How ya' doing?" post. Don't make it something it isn't. I and a few others miss G2 and that's all this is and should be.
