He felt rejected and hurt that he wasn't the first person on this forum that I wanted to meet in real life.

So he took off, dejected.

Maybe it's just the avatar. Looks like the rest of his profile is still there. He could have quit. Maybe.

Well, either he's just taking a break, he quit, or he got banned. I think you'd know if he was banned (something would have happened). But I can't figure why his avatar would just disappear either, unless it's a technical glitch.
I don't know...

Noticed the deleted post. Wasn't sure what it was. I try avoid that kind of stuff. Arguing with people about what they believe/don't believe. Mainly because it's pointless. I don't really feel a need to convince people about things.

If it's permanent, it's another nail in the coffin.

Yes, it would seem pissing off or banning the few remaining members is counter productive to making WB great again.

Yup. I visit for two people: Cityboy and brianpatrick.

But Cityboy doesn't get into emotionally unstable heated debates with people anymore, which was the draw for me. All he wants to do these days is prosthelytize his supernatural beliefs. Boring.

And if brianpatrick's gone now, there's little reason for me to visit anymore.

Aw, poor baby. Why don't you widen your horizons and engage with others? Takes all sorts to make a world, y'know.

It is not clear whether he left or got banned.

No it isn't. Maybe you should ask.

He's probably the best editor on this forum, but he would get personal if you didn't go along with his SJW nonsense. I've seen him get unnecessarily shitty with people who are no longer here. Anyway, I think CrowdGather's justing waiting for the domain to expire; there's no way this forum is profitable for them.

Let's not go the down the root of negativity.
I am sure there is a perfect explanation somewhere.

I'm going to go over to the fiction thread and try to find some actionable feedback for the latest story; that's what I'm going to do. If you'll wanna yammer about non-writing all day, that's up to you. But if you really wanna pretend to give a shit about saving a writing forum, that's a good place to start.

What's SJW?

You're right about the forum. One day all this will be but history. Then we can all console ourselves with the memory of these happy exchanges. Ah, I'm feeling nostalgic already.

Perhaps because he doesn't want to be infamous .. but it's too late. Maybe heard Demi Lovato's song about heart attacks.

Maybe BP doesn't want you to think of him as a doll or be lumped in with the rest of the plastic robotic crowd of people. Maybe he decided he has a better life without WB
Maybe someone stopped paying him and he's got to go work somewhere else.

He kept mentioning crowd funders and people accusing crowd funders to post here. Maybe this maybe that maybe this forum does nothing but show itself as an example for psychological research of bored humans who feel the need to keep coming back.

The fact that you all care so much is only vaguely interesting. This forum is dead and everyday is a funeral.

Im sure he'll be back with or without a new avatar
You guys here have a great life now.
