What about HairyFairy? Was there a name change or something I missed?

And I haven't seen Aimee around much, although she apparently has been posting...

I saw Aimee post on her birthday (she's my sister's age, and I didn't realize that *grin*)

I haven't seen HairyFairy in a while either. I've been wondering how she is. And wonder how long her hair has grown since she shaved it off! [Big Grin]

I used to PM her. She was cool. I think she got tied up with school to begin with. I don't know about now. We were bothing stressing our way through the last semester.
Hey you guys! I'm here!!!!! I'm sorry I haven't been around in a while- I had to take a brief hiatus since I had waaaay too much going on in my life for a while (between school, my volunteer work, breaking up with my boyfriend of 3 years and starting a new job!) I've missed everyone! I will be around much more often now- pinky swear! [Smile]

I've been in contact with tagurit. She left for reasons she's opted not to share publicly, but it's not any kind of personal crisis we should worry about or anything like that.

Thanks for that update Nonny! I was thinking of tag recently because she's the one who conviced me that I should try making jam.

Also, I realized recently that I hadn't seen resident_deity in a while.

I noticed. I was reading some of the old posts in "We've Got Mail" a while back, came upon one of yours, checked your recent posts and saw that you hadn't posted in ages. Welcome back!

Kate sporks has not posted since August 16, 2004 - almost exactly a year ago. I had to go to the archives to find her last post, but I can't find the thread where she said she was leaving.

I seem to remember she stated that she was NOT pulling a number 6, just going to stop being a regular poster. She didn't want people to wonder what happened to her or beg her to come back, so she made a thread explaining why she wasn't going to post on a regular basis anymore. I am fairly certain she said she would still lurk and post on occasion, which she did.

If I remember correctly, Kate Sporks came very close to rule sixing herself. She said she was fed up with how snopesters behaved during a certain event on the board, and she was fed up of people asking her personal questions. I think that if she stopped there, she would have rule-sixed herself. But, she did explicitly say that she isn't invoking rule six and prevented herself from being rule-sixed.
