All of a sudden Fluther doesn't feel the same?

Asked by TheOnlyException (2182points) May 31st, 2010

Just came on to realise that SophieF (Dibley) has been banned. And it seems someone else I thought was rather nice on here JeffVader has also gone too (whenever I click on his icon from old questions it tells me not found)

I am quite upset by this and have seen questions regarding SophieF’s removal from the site but that is not what I am interested in.

Are there certain members of this site that really make you want to come on here?
also if ANYONE knows where JeffVader went would be appreciated, found a strange cachified version of his profile to jog anyones memory

its just bummed me out a little is all..

JeffVader is still a member. The last date he was on the site was May 24th, which was only last Monday. Send him a PM to get in touch with him.

I don’t personally miss either of the people you mentioned.

This site has many wonderful contributers, and they all make me want to come back.

People come, people go, such is the Internet. Most of the people I want to keep in touch with I have other means of communication with them besides here, so’s all good for me.

Yes, there are members i like to see when i am on here.
I won’t name names though, as that would make them shy maybe, and i’ll obviously forget persons.
But you can check my Fluther to get an idea.

This latest has served to remind me that I should establish alternate ways of contacting people that I want to stay in touch with.

[mod says] Most of these cases are people voluntarily disabling their accounts, rather than being suspended or banned. Also, many of these people return with aliases, eventually.

Please see this thread about Sophief.

I don’t see much point on getting too attached to specific users. It’s nice to see recognizable names, but I love seeing a regular influx of new users as well, except for the repeat questions, but that’s par for the course.

It’s a revolving door here always will be. And IMO some good new blood as of late.

This feeling happens to all of us. What you’ll find is that Fluther will go in and out for you, a big part of your life at times and forgotten at others. It’s the couple scores of consistently awesome members that will draw you back in after a vacation :)

There are people I like to bug when I am here:)

@marinelife- Really? When I look for JeffVader I get the picture of Ben and the “Oh, no. We couldn’t find /users/JeffVader/” message. How are you getting his user page?

augustlan's avatar

JeffVader did leave the site voluntarily. If anyone would like to get in touch with him, shoot me a PM with your email address. I’d be happy to pass it along.

If I were to wake up and find Jeruba’s account gone – that would be the end for me.

* sigh *

It still bothers me that someone can be removed “for the good of the site”; it’s vague and open to abuse. Meh, there’s nothing I can do about it…

zenele's avatar

It’s a private, exclusive club. And that’s the way it should be.

There are social Wal-Marts out there.

Don’t have anything against either of them! They are human beings with problems like all the rest of us. Tolerance is a “passing fancy” now days!

Aethelwine's avatar

I felt the same as you @TheOnlyException when evelynspetzebra and TheCompassionateHeretic disappeared from Fluther.

Life goes on.

TheOnlyException's avatar

@jonsblond I suppose, still a little sad though :(

BoBo1946's avatar

did not feel sad about what happened to Dibley…and Jeff left because of what happened to Dibley! Just did not see where she deserved to “canned!” But, that was from my prespective…as I did not read all her comments. Bottomline, we move on…everyone has to walk their own walk!

BoBo1946's avatar

Excuse my poor proofreading…should read, to be “canned!” First mistake I’ve made this year!

zenele's avatar

@BoBo1946 Make that two: prespective

BoBo1946's avatar

lmao…removed by Fluther! oh me…well, two!

zenele's avatar

@BoBo1946 Make that three: now days!

Don’t make me go through everything you’ve written.

;-)

BoBo1946's avatar

@zenele lmao….well, you would get lots of lurves!!!!!!!!!!!!

augustlan's avatar

Jeff did not leave because of the dibley/sophief situation.

BoBo1946's avatar

@augustlan oh, must have gotten some bad info!

TheOnlyException's avatar

@augustlan thanks for the confirmation.
