He's been lurking but not posting. Vitus is silent. Rodred disappeared. Others seem to have disappeared or muted a bit.

It's like a weird pre-storm sensation here lately -- quiet with no birds chirping, barely a refreshing breeze. We're about to get pummeled.

Duffy has apparently been changing his username and going through deleting all his posts from the forum. Not sure why, but it has been suggested he had some sort of issue outside the forum or with another poster that has basically made him quit and get rid of anything he wrote.

Seems far-fetched. What would that scenario look like?

You know, there is an actual poster called duffman. I haven't seen him on here in a long time.

Pure speculation on my part. But if I had to make a guess, it probably has something to do with his last exchange with Dave Lusan. It did get pretty fugly!

I have no idea what the situation is. I just hope all is well with Duffy. For all I disagreed with him on and for all he seemed over the top about and at times out of line, internet characters are weird & I'm sure he's a good dude in real life. It's not quite the same around here without his certain Duffy spice.

There have been a couple of good south swells lately hitting SoCal, maybe he's out at Lowers catching waves instead of spending time online.

I was finally finished grieving the loss of The Forge. I then head to 'Merica for a couple of weeks of vacation. Arrive home, and note the LR room has a major piece of furniture missing. To be honest, I often came here just to read Duffy's latest observations about things in the world and found that 99% of them were spot on. I don't have 1st Amendment rights, (I'll get them back in 82 working days) so I could often count on Duffy to post replies to people on here that were nearly identical to what I was thinking. I just had to wait a bit for him to get his button pushed sometimes.

Like the rest, I wish him well. IMHO, Duffy really was the centerpiece of the LR. I agree with Midwest...this place is not the same without Duffy.

Duffy, I hope you are okay bro!

Whilst i agree with the sentiments about duffy

Art franke was a legend and the forum survived his, and BK (the first times) loss

It will survive others

Though i think its a shame as he was often funny

I do find it odd that the first thread about this subject was deleted by Dan. It was the thread where it was discussed what legitimate reasons there would be for Dan to delete a persons user history. That does give me pause and hope all is well.

Speaking of which, did we lose the advanced search function that allowed you to search for all posts by a specific user?

Half the reason I came to this site was to see what Duffy said. I have a friend who has never been to the site but will text and ask if there are any new Duffy stories. I'll screenshot a page and send to her for laughs. I echo the sentiments that I hope all is well!

And there you have it. If I were a betting man, I'd bet that our beloved Duffy stepped over Dan's line, whatever that is. I'd also bet that it is Dan deleting Duffy's posts, not the Duffy.

Dan doesn't delete threads and users like that, and there have been many posters who crossed way more lines than Duffy. Duffy was just a dabbler compared to some of the idiots we've had here over the years.

Well, look in your crystal ball then and tell us why Dan deleted the first thread we had on this topic? It appears there's a bit more to Duffy's disappearance than Duffy simply taking a break.

Nah, I'm not seeing it. After however many years here (going back pre-Duffy), I'd say the likelihood of Duffy trying to pull a more elaborate 'Hey look ~ I went away, do you miss me yet?' gambit is easily greater than Dan going that far out of his way to conduct some sort of vendetta-purge. Duffy's clearly been an attention whore as far back as he's been here, while Dan has been awfully laissez-faire about a lot of past user transgressions (as Slowguy noted).
