    I know we've discussed this before, but I noticed something that got me to thinking about this topic again...

    Do you ever wonder what happens to members who stop posting here on AtoZ? I do...are they still teachers? Did something happen that made them stop visiting? Is everything ok in their lives?

    I know I personally have a group of about 10 or so members that I'm friends with, and I would know what is going on with them via facebook or email or phone calls or whatever. For example, if mmswm or smalltowngal or any of the AfterPartiers just dropped off AtoZ, I'd likely know what was going on with them. But others...are they ok? Do they just lurk and never post?

    Who are some members that you knew once, but they are gone now? I remember...

    Mable and her changing avatars
    MasterPre-K just because her name always stood out to me for some reason
    Malcolm because he always had something kinda controversial to say
    Mrs. R-didn't she have the funny picture of her son with a big smile?
    wldywall and all her job drama
    halpey-the best male kindergarten teacher!

    Any others you remember?

    I've missed INteacher. I know her daughter had some medical issues. The last I heard everything was ok. She just might be busy with that and teaching and everything.

    Major is probably off jeepin it somewhere.

    Tiffany~I've missed 'seeing' her too!

    It always makes me leery when regular posters don't post for awhile. Even though I wasn't here when Ellen was here, I'm worried that something like that might have happened.

    I was looking through some OLD posts and saw a member that get apparently got banned. I was wondering why, so I started looking through her old posts. She was hardly controversial, so I kind of wonder what happened... Hmm...

    I remember her. I didn't realize that she had gotten banned. I thought that she just didn't like us anymore. :lol:

    Haha! I just noticed her one day. Under her username was the words "Banned", so of course I instantly got super curious.

    But yeah, inquiring minds want to know! :D

    I've frequently wondered about Miss Frizzle. She wasn't a huge poster, but lurked and would post from time to time, then all of a sudden she just stopped posting.

    I'm guessing Major has stopped subbing after last year. It sounded like he was doing it for fun until his wife retired. Perhaps she did so. He and I didn't always see eye to eye, but I respected the heck out of him and would love to see him roll in again.

    I figured Major was down here in Florida for the winter, living the beach life. Though it's pretty hot now and about time to head back to CO...

    I've always wondered about MasterPre-K. I always enjoyed her posts.

    Didn't know SuburbanGal got banned! Now I'm all curious :lol:

    Possible her controversial posts were 'moderated'. :whistle: The banned members I can recall have been quite controversial and inappropriate.

    I know that there have been times when I've just disappeared. Not that I stopped teaching, just too busy to stop in.

    I keep in touch with TeachOntheBeach on FB but I don't think she posts here anymore at all. I have wondered about Missy99 a lot, she taught near me, I don't know what happened to her. Anyone know about lemonhead?

    halpey is on facebook. He has a fan page for his blog. LOVE him. Funny story recently about torn pants. I should tell him to stop in!

    There was one girl who dated pro hockey players...I think was from Canada? I mostly remember a conversation about bikini waxes, lol!

    I think she's given up teaching in LI. She's wanting to move to FL. I have her as a friend on facebook and she posts often there.

    lemonhead is still teaching up near me. She doesn't post often on facebook, but she's on there.

    That's one way to put it!

    Well obviously, only someone *beyond beautiful* can date hockey players.

    I know one reason that people have disappeared from this forum. It's because they feel left out of the main loop. When they post, no none responds, but they do see them responding to the "regulars" and their "friends." They don't feel to be noticed or recognized by others, so they either quit posting altogether, or they are reluctant to try anymore.

    Well, that's...sad? It's funny how an online forum can really mirror school/student situations. I know I've had times where I've felt like no one was responding to me too. Good reminder to help everyone feel welcome.
