I seem to recall a post Linda From Maine made a while back saying she had soured on all the negativity floating around the site, and had decided to back off a bit. Perhaps she was just responding to someone else who had grown tired. Her last post seems to have been on November 11, 2021.

Her contributions were always positive, and well-reasoned. I hope she is still with us.

I agree. Always enjoyed her contributions as they were on target and enriching. Hope all is well.

Oh my, I hope she returns. She has always been so helpful, I agree with the other replies too, she is missed.
Yes there can be some rude and ugly guys here but this anywhere. Some forums are far worse from what I am told.
I really hate to see good members pushed away by a few goons.

Thank for the replies.

Hmm, Veterans’ Day - hope she didn’t get shanghaied at the Legion. She is/was a sailor.
Isn’t she admin/moderator for one of the sub-forums? Post-processing, maybe?

Good catch. I'm relatively new here, but Linda, you're a force for good! Wishing you a bright and delightful 2022, and hope to see you here again.

She retired from UHH. Not sure if she'll come back. I agree with all who miss her contributions.

So sad indeed. Thank you for the reply. She was so helpful to me and so many others and her positive knowledge and attitude is sadly missed.
I wish she would come back and maybe she will.
God bless you Linda and happy trails this new year.
Bruce.

Linda spent some rime in the Attic—-a very negative experience for anyone.

That would do it, but knowing Linda, I’d be surprised she’d go there - just looked at the last 10 pages of her posts, and zero are in the attic.

A couple of reasons. One is that an innocent topic can start in Chit-Chat and be dragged into the Attic by some jerk who couldn't resist politicizing the discussion.

Also, she might have tried to engage in some serious political discussion with some of the Attic folks. That, from my own experience, is a demoralizing and depressing endeavor.

Yes, it seems even the most innocuous topic in chat chat can be politicized, and that often results in the topic originator being censured by admin even though they’re not guilty. You’d think we all would have had enough of politics in our daily lives without polluting a photography forum.

While in the Attic, Linda expressed her views reasonably and clearly, in no uncertain terms. I cannot speak for her, but I don’t believe she visited solely by accident. Yes, it is too often a demoralizing read, and a negative reflection of many members of this forum. She was always polite.

On purpose!?!? She must have lost a bet. Or a triple dog dare.
