I never ever visit the white board
Thu Sep 21, 2017 2:46am

I know that those 3 used to frequent it, but it's not the same as having them here, Aurora because she is (or used to be) full of surprise positions, and the other 2 because they're so crazy.

Knowing that some drop by now and then, and why others don't, is not consolation for missing having the gang together on CPD, and previous boards.

Yes, we lost Len many years ago of mysterious causes. Last I heard from him he didn't know what the underlying cause of his illness was. I find it strange that, as prolific a commentator, writer, activist he was, I couldn't find any of his stuff after he died and I'm very good at searches. Anyway, I just miss it. I really miss the Donk I knew back then. He was the first person that ever spoke to me online without calling me "webby" as an insult because my browser was a WebTV.

I've lost so many people in real life, not just to death, but to living our lives in different directions also that it sucks to look back and count heads. Very glad to have been a part of the experience though.

          But I can't remember the guy's name right now. It was an interesting name. 10 +- letters. Everyone with sense really liked him. Well read and thoughtful. He frequented R&E more than here. Damn. Maybe ... more

                      Nothing is staged. If you don't like it, watch staged reality TV, and if and when you come out to climb a 14er, you can begin with Capitol, like the seven people killed on it this season, who didn't... more

                        Anyone who wants to go out in the wilderness to experience, explore, or "conquer" it shouldn't think it's a good thing to destroy it by leaving their CRAP behind as if anyone else might want to see... more

                      Shouldn't be saying anything. Ya see, there was this guy named Albert Einstein. Turns out, there really IS a top velocity. Everyone but, apparently, YOU, knows this. That's why most of your posts get ... more
