Anyone else notice our farewell to Adirondackwannabe disappeared?

Asked by Cruiser (40421points) January 19th, 2016

It hurts enough to lose a stalwart Jelly and only seemingly rubs salt in the wounds when our Meta heartfelt farewell suddenly disappears as well. Sigh…Can anyone shed some light on this turn of events??

I believe this thread should shed some light on the matter.

@dxs Not sure yet how that thread answers my question as to why the Bob/Adirondackwannabe farewell disappeared.

Soubresaut's avatar

I believe it was because the contents of his obituary were included in the post.

But reading @dxs‘s link, the farewell may very well return

I suspect @dxs is right. There was personal info in the obituary. Hopefully the thread will return in an edited form. I sincerely hope so. I think Mr A would find it somewhat hilarious that his farewell thread was modded!

Oops, I had meant to link to a specific post on the thread, this one

I flagged it. The obit was causing some troubles so I need to get it out of sight for a while. Now I’m waiting for the mods to decide its fate.

@Mimishu1995, if you just take out the personal information I’m sure it will be fine.

[Mod says] It will definitely return. We’re trying to find out what Adirondackwannabe would have wanted us to do.

A link to the obit instead of a copy/paste would be ok, wouldn’t it? Keep the question, just edit the details? Or no obit at all? We can still have a farewell without an obit that contains personal information.

The way I understand this, Mimi flagged her own post. Thanks for the thread @dxs

Well. I am totally bummed out now. I am going to bed.

Sleep well @Adirondackwannabe.

Just strip out the part that was copy and pasted from the local papers obituary and call it a day.

Part of me thinks it would mean more if we focused on what the deceased meant to Fluther and the users here. Like a ∞ K party.

Oh damn! I’ve been here and gone a lot. When did we lose Adi?
Broken heart now.
Gawd. I knew something was missing lately, I couldn’t put my finger on it.
Death taking so many wonderful people lately. I can’t face more grief.
I will miss his humor.

I noiticed it right away, and I knew why from the other question/discussion about it. I felt like why don’t they just take out the personal details and put it back up, so we can go back to memorializing him?

Mimishu1995's avatar

The thread is back. All of you who want to pay respect can go back now.

It was removed at the request of the OP for editing, and has returned.

In reality, it just shifted to another discussion that was a great tribute to @Adirondackwannabe all on its own.
