What happened to Six Point Socket II
« on: April 11, 2021, 05:35 PM »
As per the title - I'm 99% an occasional lurker but used to occasionally log on and look at his projects and tool porn posts. Then see he announced he was leaving... what gives?

I thought of him earlier when fiddling around in the basement.  His home improvement thread is locked and his parting words were sparse.

I can only guess he got tired of  dealing with the current ‘internet culture’.  My basis is that several of my friends are considering the idea of leaving all social media platforms.

Oliver didn't give any details.  I have conversed with him in the past outside the forum, but have not tried after his post.

I would hope that members here would respect his past participation, his quality posts, his enthusiasm and will to make this forum more exciting and better, and also his decision to step away from the forum in addition to the internet.  He was not just leaving us here.

I would also hope that speculation of why he made his decision won't pop up here.  Only he has that answer, and because of my conversations with him away from the forum I know that he is more private than most know.

I hope one day I will read another of his posts in real time.

His presence will be missed, but his participation will not be forgotten.

I look forward to hearing from him again and wish him well until that day arrives.

Pass auf dich auf und wünsche dir alles Gute Oliver

Sad to find out Oliver has said goodbye.

He is in good company, Per Swenson did the same five years ago.
