Nothing all that dramatic. Just life changes, more IRL responsibilities, some of my forum friends (eg Teh RJ, GoSurf, et al) going into the hinterlandz. Once you go away for a bit, you come back to find you no longer get the jokes.
It's somewhat like getting rid of your TV... the first week is tough, but six months down the road you find that you no longer wonder much what is happening. A year or more later you find that largely you've forgotten what it was you were thinking about at the time.
In any case, I hope you gents are well! I get PMs from time to time so come back in... most are asking me about manbags lol
OMG my darling! You have returned to me!
