I've been hanging around BFN since 2001, and prior to that a similar forum which closed, and prior to that the various "rec.bicycles" forums on USENET, then mostly the 50+ forum since it started in 2006.
I've watched people come and go, and a few stick around for a longer period of time - not many, but a few. Some folks come in all "gung ho" and contribute a bit and then fade away. Sometimes I wonder if they died or something, and, in one case, they had.
What are you - a "hanger on" or a "pop in and out?" Or something in the middle?
