May I wish all of those Fluther members who have passed away, or who have left this site, wherever they might be, a very Merry Christmas, and to say that I miss you all, and that I wish we could all be together again?

Hope to see those who left come back after seeing this.

I agree. I’m sorry that there were such divisive issues in Fluther this year and I wish those who left voluntarily would come back. And I miss those who have died as well very much.

There are members who passed away?

Catnip5's avatar

I also wish you a Merry Christmas!

Mimishu1995's avatar

@janbb I agree. That whole mess was unfortunate and we need to at least let bygone be bygone. After all this is a community right?

Merry Christmas !

@Catnip5 . Yes. Unfortunately, we are all mortal, IRL, and sometimes we lose jellies.

The pattern I see is, we don’t hear from them for a while, and somehow it makes its way to us that the jelly has passed away…

We recently lost ,at least two, very valued jellies…

Merry Christmas to All present and past Fluther members (who left) and hope your lives be filled with joy wherever you are!!

Thank you for the beautiful thought. I do miss some of the folks that left. I’ll keep the lights on in case they do show up. .

As for the ones that passes away, if possible, I’d prefer to stay on the top side of the grass and not join them soon.

I still miss many who have passed away. I still miss every one of the great minds that left. Merry Christmas to all, wishing you peace and joy and light.

I haven’t really been gone for long but I’m here for the time being. Happy Christmas.

LornaLove's avatar

Me too! So many that passed away I think of often. It’s crazy. Other’s that left or were thrown out, I miss too. I miss their input, their differences of opinion. Oh! It made this place ‘buzz’ even if there were never that many members.

Sometimes things happen and they shouldn’t.

A Merry Christmas to you and a great New Year. You ARE MISSED.

Checking in and Merry Christmas & Happy NY to all. Losing Adirondack floored me, the last time I was here is when I’d heard about his death, and I really loved that guy. Anyway, gonna try again.

@KNOWITALL Welcome back!!

KNOWITALL's avatar

Thanks sista!

Kardamom's avatar

Hi @KNOWITALL Glad to see you.

marinelife's avatar

Greetings @KNOWITALL! Good to see you here.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Hey guys, good to see ya’ll still around!!

LornaLove's avatar

Hey! Nice to see you @KNOWITALL

Kardamom's avatar

@KNOWITALL Actually, there’s hardly any of us still around. There was a big kerfuffle, and a lot of the regulars have left. I am in both worlds now. It’s weird, and discomfiting.

I’m afraid things will never be the same.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Change is inevitable…

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Kardamom Well I did hear something about that but maybe this will work out for the best.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^At least we got a jelly back. The pond giveth, and takith….

Hi guys nice to see the site again.

Fortunately, and unfortunately I’m a little “over” debating online

I actually felt i should apologize for being such an angry punk online. I was reading some of my old answers and realized how much of a raging D I was.

I’m still an atheist, but its not something i advertise or even care about anymore.

Just focusing more on my life i guess. I left the navy after ten years and after some struggling, have a decent job and a place with my lovely fiance. We’re getting married in Aug.

I was on another forum known for some crazy conservatives and saw how all these wierdos are still arguing with terrible logic, so i figured “Let me go see how my level headed flutherites are.” lol

Hope you guys had a great holiday.

janbb's avatar

@Blackberry Thanks for the report!

LuckyGuy's avatar

Hi @KNOWITALL It’s great to see your smiling face! :-)

I’m still here.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Good to see ya @LuckyGuy! Good to know some of us are back. Congrats on the marriage @Blackberry, and remember, we don’t have to argue with anyone, it’s always a choice. I’m a christian with many atheist and agnostic friends, LGBTQ friends, etc…. Just because we choose a different path, doesn’t mean we have to knock anyone else’s, just my take. I love to ‘discuss’ important things with intelligent people, that’s one of the reasons I came back here.

marinelife's avatar

@Blackberry Hey, welcome back. Glad to hear your life is going well.

Blackberry's avatar

Thanks guys. Hope you’re all doing well. I’m gonna get back to work haha

Mimishu1995's avatar

It’s good to see old people finally appearing again :)

ManicPixieDreamGirl's avatar

I clicked on this for old time sake and who do I see but @Blackberry?! It is good to read that update, it brought me back and got me thinking of some of the folks around more than ten years ago. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long.

Blackberry's avatar

Yea crazy huh? Sometimes one forgets we’re all people on these here computers :D

Aethelwine's avatar

So good to see you, @Blackberry. You were always one of my favorites. That smile of yours! =)

mazingerz88's avatar

Hello everyone. : )

mazingerz88's avatar

So in 2017 there were divisive issues which had a negative impact on the number of membership here? Would appreciate a bit of news about that. However, why can’t I help thinking it could be something related to politics?

Aethelwine's avatar

^A handful of people left. It wasn’t as big as some want you to think.

Good to see you! :)

Not to worry I am still here.
