    I'm so sorry to hear this. I also can't think of any interactions with him, but I still respected him.

    Board Manager here. We had a little bit of trouble here. I've soft-deleted the trouble - meanwhile the warning to RandyS stands.

    Don't come into a memorial thread and lay a poop bomb. The Romulan will not react kindly to this.

    No need to comment on this. That's polite-ese for just read my post and don't comment on it, but do carry on with commenting on Locutus of Bored.

    Or else.


    Carry on.

    I think it's safe to say that @Locutus of Bored was (and still is, if you go back and read his posts) literally one in a million. He had the power to teach, to inform, to influence, to change minds, and it was always evident that he posted with the intent of helping to make the world, by way of this board, better. As is well known, his intellect was exceptional, and his wit sharp.

    I am very sad that he is now no longer among us. I wish I could have known him in person.

    Go boldly beyond the final frontier, Patrick. Some day, I will follow.

    So sorry to hear of this. RIP Locutus. You leave this board a better place for having been here and I'll join the chorus of those who'll miss reading your posts.

    Rest in Peace. Heard the news a few weeks ago (thanks to some people on FB). He seemed like a good guy.

    Although I haven't been here in quite a while, Locutus of Bored is a name I remember with fondness and respect from my active days. His was a good and kind soul, and often rather witty too. My condolences to his family and friends.

    what horrible news! :weep:

    Locutus was one of the very few people you can disagree with and who wouldn't take it personally but stay matter-of-fact and try to see the other person's points. Sounds pretty crazy but quarrelling with him was fun because he was intelligent and witty (and sometimes annoying) and managed to see the person behind the posts and PMs, not just words on a screen.

    I knew a few people like that, on my old site. It was fun, discussing assorted issues with them.

    May he R.I.P.

    One of us has gone to the other side.

    May he find solace in the next life.

    I was never really engaged much on the forums, but I hope that he is remembered for the good he did here for years to come.
