Default Posters I miss

Some old threads getting bumped today. Always reminds me of the many posters no longer here that I enjoyed - not saying all are good people or posters (several of the bumped threads are from Sean Archer, who is a horrible human being*, even if his posts were sometimes interesting and I didn't mind him posting here), but many interesting viewpoints and thought-provoking discussions. A couple that I was reminded of today (realize that some may still post in threads I don't participate in or under names I don't recognize):

DJZ: http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...er.php?u=15359
Anitha Desai: http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...er.php?u=18356
Hero3128 (who I hope is happily married to a young EE woman that he sent away for): http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...er.php?u=38263


Not sure I have a point to starting a thread, but I do think this is a pretty interesting little corner of the internet and there's a lot of interesting people participating here, so makes me smile when I'm reminded of all the interesting people I've come across here. That is all.



*technically at least

I remember Hero.

He was pretty funny. Anitha posted a lot in the H&F section.

SA was before my time. Seemed like an oddball.

He was doing trips to Eastern Europe to meet potential mail-order brides*, IIRC. Some AO discussions of this, which were pretty interesting. Not saying he got me to actually consider it, but I can def see the draw.

*There's probably a PC term I don't know for this, apologies.

Complete slime ball, horrible person, altho not as bad as SA IMO. Not as interesting either and good riddance IMO.

Although my current gf was asking about actuaries and why we have such bad reps for people skills, and I did discuss with her the idea of getting caught jerking off on a school bus, so thanks anny for that story

Yeah the Canadians love to bump on 4th July.
Wouldn't be able to pollute if Tom would listen to me.
