    Hi All

    As a member of the ASF community since 2005 it often intrigues me to see the development of new personalities and new faces on this site. In a similar way, I sometimes reflect on what has happened to people that frequently posted but are no longer heard from.

    For example Bobby - a frequent poster in 2005 and 2006. He/she mysteriously dissappeared after posting his 1000 post (the last log in date was 4 October 2007). Where is Bobby? Is Bobby OK? Why does someone not "touchbase" after such an involvement in a website? If you jump on the members list you will see pages and pages of people who are "fly-by-nighters". But what of those who invest a real connection with ASF.

    I can't help but feel sad that there are people "out there", whose family and friends will never know how much I think of their loved one if something tragic happened.

    If someone from the ASF community was to pass away tonight, who would notice? Who would care? I find that sad.

    Duckman

    I always wondered what happened to Chicken.

    He helped me make a lot of money with his "enthusiastic" stock research

    Where are you Dweke2000?

    Re: ASF Members -Where Are They Now?

    Often wondered that myself. Chicken and Ghosta were AGM thread regulars and they convinced me to examine AGM in detail. AGM did well for me during this last year so I can probably blame them for a tax problem. Where are they?, maybe the earnt the wrath of the mods?. (They both tried hard enough).

    Yep, Chicken's the first one that came to mind for me too.

    And who was it that had the bus? What happened to them?

    LOL The Analyst - How funny was that dude!!

    How about him telling his whole life story on some thread and people were trying to get him to stop.

    I think Richkid or Joe stepped in and told him to quit it in the end.

    I remember Julia was involved as well - do you remember, Julia

    That was a very, very funny thread.

    SAM..It's under Julia's thread of ''German Shephard Needs A Home" ... if you bring up the link and let our members read it, I just read it again Joe was getting a bit mad with THE analyst and from memory, banned him for a while;)

    Yes - I think Joe had more emails with Chicken than any of us. I remember he was very keen on Bemax!!! (and I distinctly remember $1 being mentioned.)

    Also The Analyst was an old favourite. Bullmarket also had a checkered history.

    Hi Sam,
    Goodness, until Duckman started this thread (and thank you Duckman, you have echoed my own thoughts here) I'd completely forgotten The Analyst.

    Yes, I remember the whole dog saga very well. Thank heavens a good home was found for the dog before anyone related to The Analyst might have taken it! As I recall that time, The Analyst thought one of his family members might like to have the dog, and then he rambled off into an extraordinary description of his mother's problems and suggested I should phone her and try to sort things out!!! Quite sad, really.

    Duckman, you mentioned Bobby. I noticed he hadn't been posting for quite a while, and contacted him via email. Everything was OK. He just seemed to have lost interest in the market and was focusing on prospecting in inland Australia.

    I do rather miss Realist for his dogmatic fundamentalist views.
    Tech/A: wasn't there a bet going over a year between you and Realist?
    I think not long before he stopped posting, he'd resigned from his job and was going overseas. Might be reasonable to assume he's found a whole new life. It would be interesting to know, though, if he is still holding Westfield, Fosters, etc.

    The other person who is notably absent is Kris/Stop the Clock. While we had a raging bullmarket he almost daily trumpeted his successful investment in Super (against all advice about committing funds to Super at his young age).
    I guess with the downturn he's feeling a bit disappointed and reluctant to be exposed to "I told you so" from the forum?

    And then there was Bullmarket! How he drove us all nuts! But now that he is gone, just once in a very rare while, I rather miss him! How perverse.

    Anyway, Duckman, thank you for the thread. I think many of us regard ASF as 'our community'. Thank you, Joe. It would be good to think we would make an attempt to check up on long term members who abruptly disappear.

    What about CanOz? Haven't heard from him in awhile, although I did notice him on the forums a couple of months ago. But he used to post everyday.

    It's funny how this site & it's members seem to grow on you, never had that with any other forum or site. Sign of a well run forum imo, well done Joe & mods.

    Hi Julia,

    You are spot on with Bullmarket - it is strange how infuriating a poster can make you feel, yet miss them when they are gone. Maybe it has something to do with balance within the universe. There must be "evil" for "good" to exist....something like that!!

    G'day Nomores

    You got your Hawks right for the weekend? I'm about to do my picks.

    I miss Pacer and his ramblings. Some classic posts on the SLA thread for instance.
