Lost PostersBack to Forum
Anonymous10 Oct 2012
Whilst on another thread, and having linked it to one I started a couple of years ago re W Istanbul, I re-read it and was quite sad to realise the number of formerly regular and prolific posters we have lost in the intervening time period:
To name but a few.
Wherever you are, and whatever the reason for your leaving, this Forum is so much poorer without you!

Simon, add to the list Flying Chinaman, despite a brief hello about 4 weeks ago.
We have spoken and I have spoken with others. BT indicated changes a foot with the Forum, but there is only ‘hot air’ so far on the matter from BT.
Similar comments to yours were made last week on another thread and I contacted some on the above missing list to see if they would consider a “dramatic reappearance”.
The ones I contacted were pleased to hear but stated that they will only return to a secure sight, as BT indicated would happen in NF. I know this Forum is owned by BT and they did ask some months ago for views on NF, which does not appear to be going anywhere.
I agree with your comments, this is a “homely” place and it would be very nice to see posters return.
Also add Jonathan Cohen, although he does appear from time to time.
The only alternative is a much smaller break away Forum (interestingly a domain name has been purchased for this already) but whether this would work in the format discussed is another matter.10 Oct 2012
HonestCrew posted a reply to my recent Aer Lingus review. That said, he’s not in the forum as much as in the past.
I agree with Simon, in that the forum is much poorer for the loss of these former regulars.10 Oct 2012

Indeed, the forum is a much poorer place without its regulars. I remember the heady days of only 18 months ago, with our trip to the BA Waterside facility.
Martyn – do pass on my best to all those you are still in touch with.10 Oct 2012
It’s all very well lamenting the loss of these stellar posters, and I agree that we miss their contributions, but saying that the forum is a much poorer place without them makes me feel less than stellar myself!10 Oct 2012
It is nice to be mentioned and to be missed so i just wanted to let you all know that i am alive and well although not travelling as much as I used to which is good and bad.
Sadly the economic climate meant that i have had to close my company down, albeit in an orderly fashion and return to paid employment.
Fortunately I got myself a great job which those of you i am in contact with privately will hear about shortly as it is not appropriate for me to publish those details here.
i have not been posting much as i have been busy sorting things out but also there have not been any topics on which I wanted to comment or felt I could add value to but I am still keeping an eye and will continue posting from time to time.
I would be delighted tobe involved with any smaller group that is formed if I were to be invited or asked to be involved.
Take care and safe travels.
