Unfortunately, we have to de-mod Skeptic Bob. We felt like we knocked it out of the park when he accepted a mod position but he has been absent for nearly 3 months now. I know that I'm not alone in the hope that he is well and real life has taken up his time. DP would definitely be a better place if he were here.

I hope Bob is reading. Before Bob was appointed a MOD he gave me some sage advice regarding something I wrote here that could possibly come back to harm a family member.
I am grateful for his wisdom.

I hope so as will. This is the downside of social media. We need, not rules, but maybe conventions of courtesy. Let someone know if you've been gone for a while, that you're okay. Hopefully he's not here because of positive changes in his RL.

Too bad. The forum needs good people to be mods, and he was a good dude.

Yeah, he was always an easy guy to get along with.

Yes, this. Bob was a great guy. I was thrilled when he was named a mod; I am seriously upset and concerned by his disappearance. I want him back, safely. I'm honestly frightened. He was a terrific poster, and would have been a terrific mod. I am scared for him. :(

Unfortunate for all of us, I was looking forward to seeing Skeptic Bob as a moderator. Hope all is well wherever he is.

A lot of the nicer folks have dropped off due to the tone of the forum. I understand your fear, but there's a reasonable, non-terrible explanation for his absence.

I've been thinking there's been lots of natural disasters as of late, lots of people around the country losing their homes due to fires flooding etc... We could have lost members due to that and there will be no way for us to know of that until they come back and tell us.

We do hope Skeptic Bob the retired Army warrant officer is well and that he has a continued command over his present situation and circumstance. Could also be Skeptic Bob might have his own way of saying thx but no thx. I have no clue of course so I'm just saying. SB has pretty much been an occasional poster besides.

Perhaps I could also suggest sending the batted ball spinning back into the crowd behind the plate isn't exactly knocking it out of the park either. (We just might have to start a missing mods office eh. Methinks that's two of 'em now.) Mod is an often thankless job to include being overworked and underpaid (or not paid) so some of us thank all the mods everywhere, wherever they went overnight or end up going to.
