I'm posting this here, because this was one of his favorite haunts.

niner went from being one of the most prolific contributors, member and moderator, to non-existent.  Does anyone know what happened?  I for one, miss his knowledge sharing, informative posts and sense of humor.

He is just taking a break and doing fine. He might return in the near future.

Hey Mind, thanks for posting that.  Any on-line forum is only as good as its members and contributors; niner made this a much better place. I look forward to his return.

I've been tempted to post this same question myself.  Glad to hear that he's doing fine.  Was beginning to wonder if he'd met with foul play.   :|?

Thanks for posting this APBT -- I was wondering the same, and even sent him a pm to check what's up. He didn't respond so deepened intrigue. Niner's thousands of posts are consistently solid, well-grounded and researched, and he's friendly, a chemist who refreshingly doesn't take his atoms too seriously.

This forum is definitely less vibrant and alive without N's writing. I'm happy to hear he'll be back, and hasn't yet given up on the lifespan extension quest -- this bizarre virtual windmill tilting toward infinity.

I would be surprised if he returns. A lot of good posters have left probably for similar reasons and I suspect hangs out somewhere else. Quite a few of us have had unnecessary run ins a couple of years ago: there were wholesale deletions of many useful posts from excellent contributors which were deemed to have strayed too far off-topic. As you can imagine it angered people to see their work spontaneously deleted, without warning or apology, the ensuing conflicts I suspect steered them out of the community to less draconian forums. Respectful moderation is fine, but it was overly-authoritative.  The community is much the poorer and when considering the aspiration of the site, it is quite remarkable that conditions developed to the point where such knowledgeable folk felt compelled to leave. There were and are a broad range of very bright people here, some difficult, but you want to keep them here bouncing ideas of each other, that requires a congenial firmness, which was very much lacking. Things appear to have changed, but unfortunately rather late.

 

 

There was I believe a c60 private user group possibly yahoo someone posted a while back. It was posted on the c60 forum, if anyone cares to provide a link that would be great. I never got round to try and join, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is there.

Unfortunately, I suspect what happened to him happened to many posters. The quality of the forum has gone way downhill. We have users that are allowed to post runaway nonsense that is unsupported, and in many cases, completely wrong. That tends to drive people like him away imo (and myself)

I don't know.  There are still plenty of worthwhile discussions.  You just have to separate the wheat from the chaff.  And niner was pretty good about avoiding the chaff.

the forum has gone downhill for many reasons. i dont want to compile a list now of all the wrong doings by the moderators involved with the forum right now, but a lot of problems with bad management occur here. i filed a lot of complains and mods do not acknowledge any of them. not even sure if their PM works or if they are even coming here at all.

i personally moved to reddit nootropics for better discussions. its always active, with hundreds of contributors. maybe take a look at them and figure out why its such an active community in comparison to this one? another reason out of many is the harsh treatment of new comers. they prevent you from contributing or posting anything for extended periods of time and i noticed anyone with 3-4 posts, just stops coming. i addressed this issue with the mods who never responded, probably left themselves or just dont care about this forum at all. another issue is the voting system. its suppose to be a forum of discussion and not popularity contest giving stars or voting down and abusing people based on their opinions. maybe use facebook to like or dislike posts, this is a nootropic community just sharing their opinions on various issues.

anyway, i can keep going and going but i wish some more responsible intelligent mods are put in control here

I agree, he was always very positive about the community, the quality has dropped off, but its never been a more interesting time to experiment, which is all the more a shame he isn't here to contribute.

its likely he probably got one of those bad batches of supplements that i, once a while, manage to find articles on and distribute around for your viewing pleasure. it happens to the best of us. just a bad batch of a supplement. we all go around trying to get healthy and long living and we end up with someone's messy business plan model stuck down our throat. oh well, what to do but move on and buy the next most promising, best reviewed on amazon and the next door guy's blog supplement and try to be healthier and stronger than ever before!!!
