Anyone Seen Or Chatted With Geezer?

Sun Nov 10, 2013 12:11 am

Has anyone seen or chatted with member Geezer lately?? I never interacted with him very much but I always enjoyed seeing his perspective on things.He was one of our older members so I have an idea he has gotten sick or passed on to that great Anet in the sky. I am just curious to know. PS I tried member search and no luck there.

I know his e-mail as well as his full name.

I'll send him an e-mail reminding him of this thread.

Coincidentally, I was thinking about Charlie (Charley?) only a few days ago.

I'll have to send him an "instant" to see how he's doing. He is quite opinionated. I hope he didn't get banned. Regards...jack

I asked this question in a thread a few weeks back, superfly said he was alive and well but wasn't posting here.

He is fine and doing well. He rather finds it amusing (and a bit irritating) that people seek him to find out if he´s dead. He is going through a period of "self banishment" and has discovered other sites related to his varied interests where he is active on the forums. The one he mentioned was about photography.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Geezer's real name is Charlie/Charley.

Well, I don't see why. He was a rather...controversial...member. It's only normal for people to notice his absence.

Yes, and he appreciates it. However some have been rather forward in asking for the reason of his absence. It´s gotta be kind of bothersome to have to say: "No, I´m not dead"

It's better than someone else saying 'Yes, he is dead'!!

Well. True. But as others have said, he is a colorful character. I´m also not his spokesman. My suggestion is just that anybody contacting him skirt around that question.

Unless my personal data protection assistant has sent me a fake reply from his NSA office, he was alive and well about twelve hours ago.  

Like you did, I really liked his stories of the old days!

I always enjoyed readings his posts as if they were full of sexual innuendo. If you "know" what I "mean".
