    Been that way for a few days now. I was live on the site when he posted his "Account Closed" profile status and then fell silent.

    As I said elsewhere, I'm hoping he only decided to take a break/leave and not anything more serious. :oops:

    And if anyone does know anything more - with respect to confidentiality and all - information would be appreciated. I know that goes for more than just me.

    I miss his messages. I didn't always appreciate them at the time, took them for granted. I feel bad about it now.

    heard lucky pulled out of town. a real shame. think he has sensitive feelings and may have gotten them hurt. wish he would reconsider because i think he got a lot out of being here and also offered much in the way of behavior and civility.

    I did not know him well but he was not someone I wished would leave. There are a few of those but I appreciated him. Wish he would come back.

    As much as I have always thought highly of Sir Richard, one does not usually post such profile status, unless they are attention seeking, so I can't help but wonder. In the many years I have been part of this board, I too have had times where I was angry, butt hurt and/or otherwise disillusioned with things, I just quit posting and/or logging in. A couple of such times, I initially never intended on returning. I have seen many people come and go in the last five years. I will say that if he doesn't come back, then it is a sad day for SF indeed.

    Yes, I have a location...:D
    Lucky bailed because of harrassment and bullying by one particular member on here...and apparently his lady friend has also been on the receiving end of the same...all this is to the best of my understanding...
    Why he did not just use the block/ignore features on here...which work very well...as was suggested to him on a number of different occasions, is beyond me...

    Maybe the bully should be banned.

    Maybe Lucky was being dramatic....

    People can go to Rob themselves if they are being harrassed. There are usually messages involved either here or in chat that can be read by others and can and should be reported if inappropriate. There are virtually no secrets on here anyway....
    We help each other out on here if one of us is being harrassed we're really not going to tolerate it....right??

    I can understand if something causing him distress him wanting to leave and be away from that.
    I think the ignore is a great feature. Block those you don't like.
    We love lucky here! I was very sad about him leaving. He's been a wonderful friend too me over the years.

    I agree, I love and use the ignore button.
    I can understand if he wants to leave as well, I'm just looking at the situation from all angles, Lucky wasn't the only one involved. ... obviously.

    Lucky is my internet Grampa ! And like all of you,I miss him greatly,I miss his messages to me everyday...Yes he was bullied as he says,I also don't understand why he would let it get to the point where it would make him leave ,I wont name anyone as you and him both know what went on!..I think it was very childish ,BOTH of you being attention seekers!!....Its sad because Lucky is 81 yrs old and really is a harmless guy.I have a hard time wondering how people let the internet get the best of them!..This type of harassment is also abuse!..He is a lonely man with nothing to do with his time except post greeting to his friends here..I do chat with him on email and am trying to get him to come back.The only way I feel this can be fixed is for a certain member to bury his hatchet for Lucky and for Lucky to bury his hatchet and try to be civil to each other.It takes a bigger man to do this rather then trying to be the bully!!

    The problem with that is that the person (jerk) harrassing him doesn't think he has done anything remotely wrong...as we have both witnessed...:confused::confused:

    Wish I knew what everyone was talking about. Or maybe I don't. I like being oblivious to drama.

    I think this is a situation that could have been avoid if people showed a little more sensitivity.
