Re: Vanishing Participants and Users of catâ??s paw

I'm one of the 'vanishing transients, and I use my own  name, and I have been around the TS for so long that it is probably time to reincarnate.  The reason is that this forum is so predictable.  Since Pedro introduced me to the site much the same subjects keep being recycled endlessly.  It is so sterotyped that if one sees the name you can almost always anticipate what is to be read.  Sorry, but there are more important things  in life. I will keep dipping in from time to time but without much hope
