Noticed 2 of the Top10 contributors list have stopped coming.

Nareed, Last Visit: August 19, 2021
GWAE, Last Visit: September 23, 2021

Their accts dont seem to be banned.
Curious what happened after all the effort to make that number of posts here?

I don't remember Nareed posting in about 5 years. I think GWAE quit posting about two or three years ago when there was a pretty big mass exit from the site.

Nareed stormed off in a huff 4 or 5 years ago over some imagined insult never to be seen again.

A friendship between Nareed and I went bad, which I'm sure had a lot to do with it. She is still a member in good standing and the welcome mat is out if she ever chooses to return. As to GWAE, I don't know. He's welcome back anytime too.

Well, there's someone who left (with or without a a solemn oath) and actually stayed gone.

I seem to remember seeing GWAE showing up on the site not all that long ago. I don't think it records a visit once you're gone if you didn't post. Nareed, I don't remember showing up on the site at all for a long time.
Fair is fair, if unprovable claims are insisted to be true, one should be able to use unprovable methods of debunking.

GWAE was one of the protesters who left with the rest of the AP group.

The mechanics behind the Last Visited date may have been updated since your expectations were established.
I thought so too.
I was recently startled.
C'est la vie.
May the cards fall in your favor.

he seemed far from any AP when he first started posting, overvaluing what comps were worth, it seemed to me. It's interesting to think that he left over privacy concerns [which I thought was the big deal that got the APs who left all aflutter].

So maybe he evolved into a smarter gambler, I didn't know. He did have the instincts anyway, with a story how he gamed the system for grocery store offers in his area and 'got them' for hundreds of dollars. He wouldn't say how, but I've met him in person and would be surprised if that story wasn't factual

[oops, edit] ... GWAE, if you're reading this, you need to come back so we can get more of those stories!

As for Nareed, for a brief period we would PM back and forth. Bitter complaint about being trolled all the time by PM. I thought there was a fix for that? In any case, I was one on the ones Nareed decided to block I think, though I never trolled that person. I don't think my general views on things were acceptable, plus I defended Soopoo when those two were going round and round.
The Dice, the cards, they not only have no sense of justice but are seemingly endowed with a sense of cruel irony. This devolves from the 'nature of random'. Ironically, don't you see.
