    A search of her post history suggests she hasn't posted since May....sometimes members here take a break.

    I sent her a PM sometime during the summer to ask if everything was OK and she never responded.

    Oh no! Czacza, I'm not sure when you pull up history if you can see what was talked about---did she say she was taking a break??!! I hope that's what is going on!

    If she is who I think she is, we're also friends on facebook and she is fine.

    You can see post history of any member...I think a few of later threads got heated. I can understand the need for breaks...took one recently...some come back, others don't....

    We are friends on Facebook. She is fine. She got raked over the coals in a thread. I've known her for long enough here to know that she is a gentle soul who would not intend to hurt someone...but everyone needs a break now and then.

    Actually, after I posted that I realized that I hadn't seen her on FB lately so I checked, and she must have unfriended me. That's ok, we didn't interact a lot, and sometimes you realize you don't know someone as well as you'd like to stay friends. But it does make me wonder...JustMe, if you see this, we miss you.

    It's a shame that someone could feel so hurt or insulted by the forums that he/she would choose not to participate. That's the exact opposite of why the forums were created. Let's all be careful not to alienate anyone; nobody's individual opinion is worth doing that. If you hate what someone posts, just ignore it.

    Daisy...couldn't agree more.... but some people state their opinion on something & some others try to "change" your mind & it gets pretty hurtful, just because a person doesn't agree with you doesn't mean you shouldn't respect that decision. I know I've taken breaks from here because of that very reason. It is a shame that some people just can't be respectful that we all may be in education, but we simply don't believe everything the same...

    I understand having a strong opinion, and supporting it with evidence and examples. I do not understand attacking another person because of their opinion, which I what I see more and more of here, sadly. I am never offended when someone is passionate about a topic and speaks strongly about it, as long as it is in a respectful way.

    True, Diznee and MissCelia. There is no need to try and change anyone's opinion. Take what you can use and leave the rest. There is sure to be someone else who finds use in it. This is not a debate site.

    We had been friends on Facebook as well, but I don't see her on my friends list anymore so I guess she removed herself from Facebook.

    I'm not trying to defend anyone who posts unkind messages, but this is an anonymous forum. I don't see the need for people to get all bent out of shape when someone posts something you don't like. Like other posters have said, just ignore the nasty posts.

    I also PM'd her when she disappeared and never heard back. Now hearing all this makes me worry a bit - although many of you obviously know her far, far better than I ever did. All I know is that I appreciated her contributions here. I hope she's all right.

    Correct, I just went to look and she is also not on my friend's list anymore- this must have been fairly recent. I looked on Pinterest and while she is still there, the link to her FB says page not found.

    I think some people take things too personally. I'm not saying this is why certain people have left but sometimes it's easy to forget that we don't really "know" each other.

    I think the opposite is also true but that's a discussion for another thread. Hope JustMe is doing well.

    Cutnglue is doing well. She is managing a facility that teaches skills and job training to adults with disabilities.

    There are several users that I have wondered what happened to. I read the archives from time to time and this forum seemed to have a different vibe back then. There were definitely some awesome posters from that "era".

    Like Master Pre-K seemed so hilarious! Sadly he was before my time.

    Just happened to stumble back on this thread...turns out I am still friends with JustMe, I just couldn't find her the other day. We don't interact a lot, but she looks to be doing well!

    The one that I always think of is blindteacher. He was always so kind to everyone. I just wonder. After Ellen, you just wonder...

    Alice was fine last time I checked. She and I exchanged a few emails outside of the forums. I doubt she'll be back.


    She doesn't.
