Lost SH friends?

Over the last several months I've noticed friends being dropped from my list, and not by my own actions.

When I've re-friended a good number of people, they have expressed the same dismay.

Have you noticed the same thing?

Does anyone have a clue why it happens?
You!

    Good post my friend. You're not alone here. I've had like 20 or more of my own friends drop off of my friend's list too. When I come across them then I'll refriend them too but i don't know why they even got dropped from my list in the first place. I even had one friend ask me flat out why I took her off of my friends list and I told her that I didn't do that at all. We refriended each other right after that. There's some very peculiar things going on with this site here.

    I found out one person was DA'D and their last login was early in June. Sometimes people move or lose interest in the site.

    Yes I've noticed it too. It's on an ongoing basis. At first I used to think I was blocked, but that wasn't the case.

    Several months ago, yes but it has stopped now. Many of them have been banned which is sad. I miss them.

    No idea as to why that happens! Maybe it's something in the site.or maybe it's just a way of saying," So long!" Nothing to lose any sleep over.

    This has been going on for years. There seems to be a glitch in SodaHead's programming. What you describe happened to me at least a dozen times.

    Great post. I think some of this is due to computer glitches like I'm having. =)

    I haven't looked but I noticed that when I go to my friends list to catch up and say hi to those I haven't chatted with for some time, I can only click to several pages and then when I click to get to the rest it won't go forward any more. Is that a glitch? has anyone else had this happen too?

    Make sure they've actually blocked you before you block them - might just be one of these "dropped off" ones that everyone is noticing. To tell if they've blocked you - click on "reply" to one of their comments. The reply space will appear, then quickly disappear.
    If it doesn't block you from replying, ask the person why they dropped you. Chances are that they did not.

    Many "friends" have "left the building", probably disillusioned with the futility of the hours wasted here.

    I've personally unfriended quite a few who deny Principle and moved to the grey middle. Many of the ABO crowd fit that picture.

    Maybe they have secret software that ditches friends once it realizes you are actually making a real friend on here! Wouldn't surprise me, seems the site thrives on hate instead of the true exchange of opinions.

    I'm good and hot on this wonderful Sunday! But it is actually starting to cool off a bit thanks to a storm close by. How's it going for the bman? I see you are still here on SH!! I have been keeping a low profile as of late! Still have to check under my car for any surprises! LOL!

    I've been doing o.k myself. Been trying to keep busy and actually succeeding from time to time. Yep, I'm still around. I don't come on quite as often as I used to do but I'm still here just the same. I hear what you're saying about checking under your car too. I've not done that yet but I'm gonna have to start getting in the habit of doing it. :-)

    Pretty much how I deal with it myself. Someone told me it can happen when eith party makes a simplebchange to their home page. Just a glitch sometimes, I guess.

    As far as I heard, several SH users had to give up for lack of time (work, studies, etc.), out of disappointment (some were looking for bf's or gf's, or became bored), or simply because they changed activities.

    Furthermore, several people and friends were absent for a certain time - for family matters, in hospital, abroad - some passed away, and some were "removed".

    On my side, some of my friends and acquaintances disappeared. Some came back with the same identity, after a trip or a hospitalisation, others had given up, mostly for lack of time. And there are many fora there ...

    Whatever the reasons, anonymity and privacy need to be respected.

    It's just a euphemism for "You've been blocked" ! LOL
