    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Now you're talking to us! That's a good thing. :D

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Ah, yes, but a different message is received "member has to clear room in mailbox" or something like that. This was "does not wish to receive or is unable".

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Alas, that doesn't mean to me it was HER intent. The same bounceback message occurs when a poster who is no longer permitted to access the site is getting a message, too....IOW, they CAN'T get the message, because they no longer are authorized to view it. So....it isn't clear at all. :(

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    I only wish I was getting it done. But haven't heard anything yet so..... Not sure where(if anywhere) we can go from here :(

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    I remember that, and appreciate seeing the notice. Great loss, to be sure. Mostly, though, I think that family members might not even know to contact the sites that their family frequents, and probably DON'T think to clue us/them in. After all, to people who do not use online forums and haven't benefited from friendships found in this venue....would they even think of it? My own dear husband, knowing the sites I frequent, would probably NOT think to notify anyone here if I suddenly fell ill.....had a serious injury....or heaven forbid died....he'd be too busy attending to the home front. IF, however, someone FROM one of those sites were to call or email (that's where the safety email might be handy: a spouse, or SO!), then a very simple fix could be found, he'd say what was going on, how long it might be (or that it'd never be again) and that would be that. My hubby has known me to use online forums for more than 20 years, and STILL I doubt he'd think of contacting them in such an event.

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Was thinking that when someone goes missing like this, maybe members can ask Admin to send an email to the address on file (we all have one on our profiles, when we join) to verify that the member is simply taking a break....and even that the email address is still working. If it bounces back, well....we know at least that the member is not reachable. Alternatively, perhaps we could have some kind of 'safety' in the form of an email address or two that can be submitted (along with our registration stuff? Or through our profile, so we can amend it at any time if necessary?) so that members who want to reach us privately can have a way to do so. Admin gets a member's request for private contact....they send email to MIA member with name of requestor....MIA member then can choose to respond back on the site (if possible) or to the email the other member provided...something. I belong to a website where some years back we put a 'safety' in place with phone numbers: the administration/mods had the numbers, and if someone who was a regular poster suddenly went MIA for long enough to worry us, a phone call could be made by one of them. Totally voluntary, and to my knowledge I don't think it's been acted upon, but it was a bit of peace of mind for those of us who kept in pretty regular contact. Just ideas, anyway.

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    That's always been the trouble where we only can contact each other via PMs: when the PM feature is disabled....meaning they cannot get an email that tells them they have a PM saying someone is concerned about them....and we literally don't know if someone is alive or dead. And given upheavals in people's lives, the chaos that can erupt without notice....it'd be good to have a "safety" in place, y'know?

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    So maybe the question to ask is "if anyone knows RK in real life....or has contact info that would be helpful....maybe PM one of us with it?"

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Last activity showing on her profile was early September. But no posts showing for August, which is really REALLY weird for her. The thing about online forums is that sometimes we don't know if something truly awful happened....we don't have contact info outside of the website, so we don't know if they are sick...injured....dead. We worry!

    Red Kryptonite...? Where are ya?

    Seems your profile isn't letting me send you any PMs; did you turn off the setting? If you're still checking in, could you let us know you're alive? When active members disappear it makes us worried that something happened to you! Are you ok?

    Misheard Lyrics

    Listening to Adele sing "I Set Fire to the Rain"......and trying to figure out why she's then saying "I watched it burn....down your face". Hmmm. A little graphic for the AM drive. Listened again. More carefully. "Watched it pour....as I touched your face". Decidedly better.

    what is your favorite tv series?

    There's a Netflix Original series, "Orange is the New Black", based on a novel by the same name. Not sure how they took an average-length work of fiction and turned it into multiple seasons, lol, but I liked Season one quite a bit. Season two....not as much. But still watched it :). Only turn it on if you're ok with SERIOUS profanity and very graphic sexual scenes. NOT for the faint of heart. House of Cards is on my Waiting list. When I get to it! Criminal Minds is somewhere around 75% realistic, I think, based on what I've learned from those I know who are "in the know" on forensics, criminal profiling, etc. And the fact that the actor portraying Derrick Morgan is 100% Chick Magnet Eye Candy doesn't hurt, either

    Chain-Letter for Women ONLY!

    See, now, I thought this thread was going to be about that obnoxious and annoying irritant known as the Email Chain Letter that finds its way to my inbox four or five times a year. You know the ones: Send a recipe to the person next on the list, bump up your name, blah blah blah....and by the end of the week you'll have a bazillion tried-and-true great recipes!! Yeah...except I got exactly ONE, from the person who sent me the chain letter. Don't do that anymore. How about Send this to 16 people in the next hour or your favorite sweater will shrink in the wash, your dog will run away, and tonight's roast will burn (ok, that one I made up--sorta). But really, the "do this or you will have dire consequences" ones....NEVER do those. Somehow I've survived all the punishing plagues, too. Go figure. Then there's the Send this to 50 of your closest friends (seriously?? I don't KNOW that many people, LOL) and a great joy will come your way. Ok. Sure. Like maybe one of these people I barely know will give me a winning lottery ticket? :D I think I get so few of them now because I've stopped responding

    what is your favorite tv series?

    I only watch Netflix. Once you've experienced the sheer joy of watching two episodes of a favorite program back-to-back without a SINGLE commercial interruption, you'll never go back! :) For network series, it's Criminal Minds....I'm on my second run-through. And Grey's. Repeating that one, too. Witches of East End...only two seasons available, and almost done with Season 2. Spooky soap :D I like watching Julia Ormond try to cover her very British accent with an American one...NOT very convincing, she slips more often than she gets it right

    Misheard Lyrics

    Shared this thread with my son; he was DYING over the one I found funniest, too: 'See that girl, Watch that scene, Dig it, the Dancin' Queen' will NEVER sound the same to us, LOL..."watch her scream"...too funny. Anyway, he gave me the one he always got screwed up on and then he found the (completely unintelligible words) online for Nirvana's Smells like Teen Spirit. What he HEARD (and me, too!!!) was "Here we are now, in containers....Avocado....a potato!" ok. ACTUAL lyrics : "Here we are now, entertain us....I feel stupid....and contagious" :D
