Knerd has shown up-glad of that. Kaelin, Snakes, and now Fudy (Judy) now gone missing. Don't recall if any of them ever said nice things about me like Knerd did but they were frequent posters and now MIA - Linda

Not sure about the others but Kaelin still shows up on Facebook every now and then, as recent as yesterday "I think"....guess you could try her their if you are worried about her.

id talk to Kaelin via pm. Justin checked in which he has done before. Still no indication that he is here to stay though. I certainly am not making light of his situation nd the sadness of it. When someone can give information that something broken has been fixed, then I think it safe to say Justin s BACK!! Linda

Linda, I agree with you on the question of the return of Justin.

Great to hear from you TSK. Thought you might be the ext one I would have to report as MIA, but have known that you were here as when I do the puzzles, see your name right up there with the folks on top-Linda

OK, I'm a moron. What is Facebook and how do I get on it? I wanna play!

Pennwoman: I am, of course, sympathetic to Justin's personal situation, and I continue to support this site despite the numerous programming issues which are longstanding. I will believe Justin is "back", however, when I start seeing some of programming problems fixed. I continue to refuse to pay for a platinum upgrade precisely because of how many programming glitches have not been addressed -- not to mention functionality that was lost when the site was made "better" by bringing 2.0 on-line.

Linda, I too think it's strange that all the people who say nice things about you are MIA....hmmmm.

Nope, not all, Chick. Knerd said nice things about me a couple of times in spite of herself and she just took a break. Believe but not sure one of my "fit and quit" things occurred after a direct confrontation with Kaelin. Don't remember Snakes ever giving any opinion about me at all. I notice when people who once were active participants disappear. I have said before that I offend all on a pretty equal basis-believe it was you the first time when I called your posts "fluff"-have reconsidered that stance now. Linda (must say I really do like it when TSK agrees with me as he certainly does not on many things)

I am going to be gone for a few days next week, and may not have an Internet connection. I just wanted to note that before my absence sparks any despair or delight.

Hey, Linda. I'm still here. Glad to be missed. I started working part-time at my local library and one staffer is on vacation this week, so I've been getting some extra hours. Plus, I'm training for a half-marathon so I'm at the gym a lot. AND I had to read all my book club books for my monthly meetings. Busy, busy, but I always check in on Sploofus to see what's up.

Keep rockin', gal!

I plan to got by the Publix grocery store tomorrow around noon. Hopefully, God willing!, I'll be back within the hour. Might actually swing by Whole Foods for a bit, so expect me home by 1:30. Just keeping you posted, in case anyone worries.

That's OK, Linda (aka Mother Hen), you just keep on checkin' up on folks. As you notice, they all sort of like it when someone notices they haven't been visible on Salty Dog for a while.

FYI, as for me, it's cold and windy out and I am not anticipating leaving the house tomorrow.

I'm still waiting on the mother-ship to come get me off this isolated planet so if I disappear....

Linda - I never considered what we had a confrontation - just a misunderstanding - and was very sorry you quit at that time and if I had anything to do with it, I'm doubly sorry.

I'm not here simply because it's not fun for me anymore. After a particularly morose puzzle that came out during the holidays that I personally felt should have been more carefully considered by the editors - ESPECIALLY during the holidays, I simply chose not to participate any longer in trying to keep at the top 20-50...I will tell you that it was difficult, even I didn't realize how addicted I was to getting this done twice a day - I would feel depressed if I missed one...which is silly - so I went cold turkey.

I miss the joy of when I first joined over 2 years ago - and now I'm quite busy helping with the planning of our 30th H.S. Reunion that will be this year (which ironically is how I found sploofus - looking for music of the 70's 2 years ago this month), plus running my business - and I only have time for 1 "extra" activity, and the reunion planning is taking all my time.

I logged in today to do my TQOTD's - I enjoy talking with some of my sploofus friends over on facebook since I am using that to gather my over 850 classmates I graduated with - I won't quit sploofus - and I didn't stop doing WP's because I was caught cheating (addressing another thread - I'm just putting that out there so there is no question)

So that's really it - I still talk to those who are here and some who have gone on FB - no stress, no politics, no infighting, no making people feel stupid for their beliefs - works for me.

Kaelin, I am glad to hear that you are okay and just taking a break. I may not always agree with you but I have a great deal of respect for you. Good luck with the reunion - have fun!

I too am glad to hear from Kaelin. She had said the same thing to me via pm so I knew she was okay. I have still not heard from Snakes but one of her earlier posts hinted strongly that she had had multiple bouts with cancer-so believe it might be "safe" to write her off of the list of "CHEATERS" as that insinuation was drawn from that nasty editor's post. I will NEVER ask about any fellow player in public ever again. Must say though that nary a word nor sign of Justin's presence since his "comeback" post on 1/9-from the "facts' in that Editorial Comment posts might be safe to assume him to be a "CHEATER" -Linda ;(
