True, but that's because it reflects our collective knowledge of the matter.

On the other hand, though:

cyn's failure to follow up is the "deafening silence" to which I was specifically referring.

I'm sure cyn can speak for herself, but given the lack of additional information (which is Hal's choice), did you expect her to issue a periodic statement to that effect? smirk

Periodic? Not at all, but considering that she's been in contact with Hal, even a "No further information" response to one of Jon's posts, as opposed to ominous silence, would have been considerate. wink

As one who doesn't have any information about Hal, I took this question at face value: I don't have any information about Hal (nor do I know anyone else here who does), and am thus disqualified from answering. I'm guessing you took it to mean, "can anybody who might reasonably be conjectured to have information about Hal, if any is available, let us know that they don't have such information if indeed they don't?"

Pursuant to that interpretation, since I number myself among those "who might reasonably be conjectured to have information about Hal, if any is available"—having undertaken to maintain contact between this motley crew and him on a previous occasion or two—I should be judged to have been as inconsiderate as cyn.

Therefore, my apologies! wink

I must confess, though, that this whole line of reasoning strikes me as unduly dependent upon the assumption that others share your particular sensibilities as respects reading between the lines. Perhaps an explicit question directed to cyn—she is, after all, in the thread—would have been more straightforward?

Excellent! Professor Irwin Corey couldn't have said it better.



(Considered together with alternaut's last post, your blather suggests that cyn is no longer paying attention.)

I did a Google search and came up with this reference to Hal dated April 26, 2013 (look at the Reviews/Comments tab). Is this the same Hal? Is his real name Evan François? I googled Evan François and came up with this obituary. The man died before Hal's last post at FTM but I seem to recall that Hal had mentioned that his father had died and didn't want any expressions of condolence.

Been there, done that. And yes, E.F. sure looks like 'our' Hal. Assuming it's him, he has been slow and picky in returning his attention to his previous haunts (as per Google). Bottom line, though, he knows where to find this forum, and he will visit if he feels like it. Or not, as the case may be. Meanwhile, he's missed.

I actually had cause to respond to Hal's comment about Cookie, and I mentioned that he's missed...no details; we'll see...

At Hal's request, I'm forwarding his best wishes to the entire FTM crew.

I'm happy to report that he sounds like he's in far better spirits than he was in when we last heard from him. smile

Thanks for posting that, Artie. I miss him but I'm happy that he's alive and well.
