What do you mean “lost a member to death?

Big88's avatar

I don’t know how big the membership is or how long Fluther has been around but I’m sure it has unless you mean while typing or something.

For the sake of sounding silly, do you care to explain? Death is very serious as we all know. If it was a friend or family member I’m sorry…

hamburgerman's avatar

Exactly my point sccrowell, AGREED!

I think hes just asking if anyone who was a member on fluther has died.

Where did my prior answer go? It wasn’t bad.

cornman's avatar

Say for instance, one of us died, how would we ever know?
Just wondering if anyone has had any Fluther friend pass away.

I just had emergency surgery on Monday because my heart rate dropped down below 30 beats per minute. Now I am the proud owner of a pacemaker and no one noticed my absence from Fluther for two days.

Back at home after two nights in the hospital.

Glad you made it.

@srmorgan How frightening! I’m so glad you’re ok now.
@cornman You’re scaring me. I remember the suicide thread you posted. Is there something hidden in your reason for asking this?

@cornman – that last one’s an interesting question… Not, I suppose.

@srmorgen – glad you made it. Don’t worry as to the absence though, I wouldn’t notice anyone being absent for two days ;-)

This is a very weird thread. It would be hard to tell if anyone died, I mean, how do we tell the difference between someone who is away seeing grandma, got bored of Fluthering, or actually passed away?

I’m guessing if someone does know someone who was a Fluther member before their death, they might not be enthusiastic to talk about it.

Who knows.

Is anybody missing? Should we take roll call?

johnpowell’s been kinda scarce larely too.

sable's avatar

Yoo-hoo! Where are you?

jrpowell's avatar

I am alive… And I can’t be the only person to leave directions for my family to follow if I die. I have a list of people/sites to notify.

And weird, I was talking to someone the other night about this.

I’ve been away at times for days, weeks. No-one notices, no-one cares. That’s fine. The clown is always the loneliest and saddest. However, if I die, you’ll be able to know you are really contacting me by the secret word “Rosemary.” Anything else is a hoax.

peedub's avatar

@Zen Would I need to chant the word 3 times? I like ‘Rosemary,’ what is the provenance of your afterlife calling card? Is it your real name?

Are you a sad clown? Vincente Fernandez puts it, a Triste Payaso

@peedub If you go to a medium and try to talk to me, the code word is: Rosemary. No need to chant.
