He posted regularly here till Apr 1, 2010 and was last logged on 16 days later. We exchanged a few e-mails upto that point But I haven't heard back from since. Has anyone been in contacts with him since then?

Stephen Turner's email address of record (for the Ed forum) has been unreachable for more than a year. That is the extent of my knowledge and I know of no one who has provided anything recent on his status. Stephen's sudden withdrawal, along with Maurice Phillips going silent on October 16, 2010, influenced me to thinking about proposing a buddy system among active participants on this forum. We should consider grouping in threes and checking in with each other a couple of time per week. A telephone call would be initiated to whoever misses an email check in. Just a stab at paranoid hand holding, but it would not seem to take much effort, especially amongst a community as small as this one.

I am glad you brought this up, Len, because it will make it less likely that you will attempt to tear my posted concerns about these two forum and CT community contributors, to shreds.

The history of the edits of that page show the content of it has been reduced more than ten percent since then:

BTW, Len, I've been meaning to ask you to post your guess of how Anthony A. Lapham could have been so well acquainted with Henry R. Breck to choose Breck to be the godfather of his son, Nicholas, and for Breck to choose Lapham as the best man in his 1973 marriage to Tex McCrary's niece.:

The very best men: four who dared : the early years of the CIA - Page 91

"The Brits were the most bloodthirsty of all," said Henry Breck, Groton '54, a CIA case officer in India in the 1960s. "Of course, if you're in a real war you must fight hard — and the upper classes fight the hardest. They have the most to lose."

If it's the same address I have it was from his employer, so I assume he no longer works there and around same time simply decided to stop posting here just like John G. did around the same time.

Doesn't make much sense to me but you could try to set such a system up.

Remember that joke about the survey asking people "What's worse ignorance or apathy?" to which someone responded

"I don't know or care!"

WTF does this have to do with Steve's disappearance? Why do so frequently bring up completely irrelevant points on threads, do you think we are all obliged to share your obsessions? Did you forget that one of the rules you are supposed to enforce is

"(vi) Make sure your postings are relevant to the thread. Please start another thread if your comments do not belong to any existing threads".

Oh yeah I almost forgot you seem to think that do to your incredibly 'valuable' and 'under-appreciated' contributions to this forum you are exempt from following them even as you enforce them against others.

I moved this thread from JFK Debate because the opening post in the thread has nothing specific to do with JFK Debate.

William Plumlee has not posted since April 20th 2010.

Although,not related to Stephen Turner,it is another member that stopped posting in 2010.But then again he was born on January 2, 1909.Probably went to his 1001st birthday party.

Not being sarcastic,just adding a bit of levity.As well as pointing out the fact another member stopped posting in 2010.

You’re a funny guy Tom,

You did not you see fit to move a thread about RFK Jr. and the “Anyone know what is up with Nathaniel Heidenheimer?” thread has been on the JFK Assassination Forum for nearly a month but it never occurred to you (or any of the other Mods.) to move it for being off topic. But after just over 24 hours you decided to move this one and didn’t even leave a redirect thread as is customary when threads are moved even though there was little difference between the two threads except that Steve was one of the original moderators and is now an administrator while Nate is an ordinary member. What makes your decision even curiouser is that initially it seems not to have occurred to you that this thread was "off topic" you even said “I am glad you brought this up, Len”. But low and behold only 48 minutes after I pointed out yet another case of your hypocrisy in enforcing rules you don’t follow yourself it suddenly came you that this thread had to be moved, thus you demonstrate once again you want the rest of us to do as you say not do as you do. And speaking of being ‘off topic’ part of your previous post had phuk all to do with the topic of this thread

Let me get this straight, a thread about a book about JFK’s nephew - on topic; a thread about Obama’s decision to kill members of AQ with a drone – on topic; a thread about the ‘disappearance’ of an ordinary member – on topic but a thread about the disappearance (over 2 years) of one of the forum’s administrators – OFF topic. Please explain how that is justified. And explain how the thread is any more on topic here? Most of Steve’s posts were in the JFK section.

Oh and speaking of your double standard you have yet to justify criticizing David H. and editing one of his posts for questioning my motives and then less than 24 hours later doing THE EXACT SAME THING. Still not satisfied you once again questioned the motives of your critics (in the RFK jr.thread) but deleted the post when Daniel pointed out you violation of the rules. How can you continue as a moderator if you repeatedly flaunt the rules?
