It's been some time now since we've seen Lou posting. He appears to be MIA. I normally would not reach out in such a way, but as Roger put it, "Lou is one of the most prolific posters on the forum", and he is missed. I'm quite sure others have noticed as well. I am really really hoping Lou is okay in his life, and no serious drama has come upon him. While we can sometimes disagree on forum discussions, I kinda doubt Lou would run with his tail between his legs as a result. The "Lou" I know has a lot thicker skin. So lets hope Lou is okay, and not sick or injured. I've received negative ratings, myself, and can't say I enjoy getting them, but as we all know it is the nature of our reputation system. We're not all going to agree 100 percent of the time. Personally, I have never liked reputation systems on forums, as they can sometimes create bad feelings. I am really hoping this is not the case with Lou. As I said, the Lou I know has a lot thicker skin than that. Sadly, this is all too common on the Internet. We just have no way of knowing what's happened. So I would like to encourage other regular members to post something in this thread in support of one of Vegan Forum's most prolific posters, Lou. His thoughtful responses and kind words are missed. @Lou We miss our resident roadrunner.
