Does anyone remember the foreign guy's name back in 2008/2009 who used to post crazy ideas, that people just laughed about ?? You could never take this guy seriously,although he took himself seriously. I can't remember his name. [Maybe it began with a P ???] I think he was from costa rica, or some spanish speaking country.
Yes, there are several people who have left LP. Some I miss and others whose leaving was a good thing.
The reason some have left, I believe, is due to the attacks they have suffered at the hands of the narrow minded. When a hypothesis was advanced in the hopes of inaugurating an in depth discussion, these people were attacked viscously. So they left after a few months and I really don't blame them. But I still miss them.
