Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

Just got back from deployment and I see some missing faces (the usuals) on here:
Jamie J. Skibicki
Tamara Cohen
Jason R O'Dell (I see he got banned)
Renee Lee
Probably missing a few more...

Anyone still talk to the ol' gang?

Re: Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

they're all pretty active on facebook.
not sure if any were banned from here - that you didn't mention as being banned.

Re: Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

John,

(If I'm wrong on any of these, someone please post up)

Skibicki I think got tired of some politics of the board and left on his own. I could be wrong. Great wealth of knowledge he was.

TC got banned during the games last year (not this past year). It may have been a temporary ban (slap on the hand type of thing, I got one also but my posting came back within a week or 3) but it urged her to go on to somewhere that fit her goals more (read SS and pendlay forums).

Jason R O'D got banned at the same time. He was really starting to voice his thoughts against HQ, programming, et al, and dropped a comment that did his own fate in. I read the post when it was still readable and he was tired of it and knew full well what he was doing.

Renee Lee, didn't know her.

Before you ask, C.J. Kim, same fate as Jason but not sure about when his happen.

The forum has REALLY slowed down. The running joke is about how every thread turns into one of 5 topics:
1) Pro football players would beat the snot out of cf'ers at cf.
2) Which strength based program is best.
3) Eat more calories.
4) Mainsite programming is/isn't random.
5) Which ____ is best for cf.

Hope I don't get dinged for this, just passing on some info.

P.S. Thank you for your work overseas.

Re: Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

Jamie reads *** I think and he and Tam are FB, a lot. Especially Tam. For awhile she was on Pendlay's board but now I think she might be over on Rip's as she follows Rip and goes to his seminar (and her gym is Rip approved).

Renee was active till this summer before she disappeared.

I'm guessing the others just moved on as being on the board became less of a priority. Most people pretty much read and post on what they want to know and move on eventually.

The rest of are bored so waste time here.

Re: Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

Hey John, Welcome back and thanks for your service in keeping this great country safe. As far as the old gang, yeah, I too have noticed a drop off over the years of some of the usual crowd. But It's nice to see the newer members (Andrew B. ) are keeping these boards active none the less. I too go to FB for CF but I still lurk and post here from time to time. Life has been keeping me pretty busy and I don't always have time to post as often as I would like to but I still CF regularly and talk about it often to the uninitiated. It's good to see that Sean, Blair and Matt are still here also. Take care fellows and hope to talk to you all again soon.

Re: Returned From Deployment - Where'd People Go?

I'm glad you asked this question...I wonder the same thing often. The ole gang was funny as hell, esp Jamie. I remember all the MEAT FEST babble, and wonder if they still gather for that?

Jay Cohen was another one, I think he organized MEATFEST.

I feel that Katherine D. has dropped off recently as well

...and lastly, I always thought you robbed my name, and forced me to put my middle initial on these boards. I think its funny you live in Corona, CA. as well. Thanks for your service man!
