He doesn't come around much any more. He spends his time on another Forum.


The other topic turned nasty when someone got a little peeved at the manner and timing of his departure. He'* still a member here, and surfs regularly, but doesn't post. Try PM'ing him or use the email link in his profile.

Hey......I'm here.
Thanks for asking about me.
I have seen this issue discussed recently, and thought I'd pop in and let everyone know what'* going on.
As stated, I am still a member here an do surf the lounge regularly.
I know there has been some issues regarding my no longer posting here, and figured I'd clear things up.

Tallbump Writes:

I am aware that there have been a few inquiries as to my whereabouts lately. As stated, I am still a member of the BC and do check up on posts. I would like to clarify that myself and my family are eternally grateful what for the BC did for us. Please know that not a day goes by that I don't think about how touched we are by the generous outreach of the BC community. Also, please know that I have struggled considerably with my "non-active" status here on the BC. I respect that different people are going to have different opinions on my reasons and my timing for this happening. Please know that I have my own personal reasons for this choice that have not been influenced in anyway by any current or former members. For sometime, months before the PIF occurred, I made some observations as to the attitudes of certain individuals here on the BC that I felt were inappropriate. I discussed these concerns with several different individuals and unfortunately nothing came of it. Since that time I have become quite involved as an admin on another forum and it has consumed a lot of my time. Many of you are familiar faces there and we are very glad to have you. If you're not part of that forum, feel free to join. If not, that'* fine too. Please know that despite anything that you MAY have heard to the contrary, I have no ill feelings towards the BC as a whole, although I still have my personal feelings regarding the way that those previously mentioned individuals handle themselves publicly and privately. I would be willing to discuss this matter professionally with anyone who would like to know more. Also, I would like to express my gratitude for everyone'* wondering where and how I have been. For those that are genuinely concerned, my family and I are doing quite well. We have settled in to our new apartment and we love it there. There are still some ongoing issues with the former landlord to be worked out, but nothing major. We are still driving the Celebrity and it is running fine and the brakes are holding up great. Also, we reached our hours for Habitat that makes us eligible to begin working on our own house, now we are just awaiting to begin the process of choosing our location and getting to work. Thanks again for everyone'* past help and continued concern. Again, I would be happy to talk with anyone on any issues they may have, either through PM or email, or of course, all are welcome over on the other forum.


for my thoughts on this matter, as well as an update to my family'* situation.
I chose to create a separate link as do have to much respect for the BC to tie up too much of it'* space on this matter.
Thanks again for everyone'* support and well wishes.

No sweat, bud. Two of the attitudes you're talking about were banned for those very reasons. It'* all good. It'* our fault we let it go as long as we did.

No space problems here. I inserted your link content instead. Text doesn't really take up bandwidth or space.


Hang in there. Post up some pics of the new place when you get a chance.

Nice to see you checking in over here bud!

Glad to see some mature explanation of your absence here without any tension beginning. I hate to see the community broken up the way it has been lately and off color comments beginning for little or no reason...
