Sometimes, the anonymity of places like this, allow us to make a quick comment that hurts someone else's feelings.  Sometimes they just get bored.  Sometimes, alas, they go to flippin burgers in the sky. Gawd forbid they should all of a sudden get champagne tastes and decide it's haute cuisine from here on in.
 
There used to be a gal from NJ, I think, who was the undisputed Hamburger Maven.........Ellen something.... I remember a series of sort of "snippy" comments and all of a sudden she was gone.....too bad
 
Ort was another that I enjoyed reading his posts and his signature greetings and sign-offs.
 
I have only met one roadfooder......alas no longer physically with us.......but I do feel a sense of kinship with many over their love of food.  And I definitely enjoy almost all the posts..acerbic or not

I-95 still posts (not prolifically like he used to) but still posts and had recently logged in when I created the list.
 
I know there are many that I didnt name that should have been on the list, but I did a quick glance at the members list and looked for last login dates of 1 year+ or frequent posters that just vanished.
 
So to those I did not list, I do apologize, I did not have the time to do an extensive search.

I've been busy with a variety of things, but maybe I should revisit Theedge.  I'll be heading out to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for a ski trip the end of next month, looking forward to some good eats again.  You can also friend me on the FB - www.facebook.com/mowercounty

Just thought I'd put my two cents in....
 
It's upsetting and sad when a former Roadfooder passes away. I do find it personally upsetting when it's someone I have known and have  met, like Padre Rick. As far as others  (who are alive and well)  are concerned I really never gave it much thought. People move on, are busy, and have other things going on in their lives....I actually got in touch with Desert Dog when I was in Phoenix last spring, he's been very busy with his own career, unfortunately we couldn't meet up because our schedules were conflicting.
 
I am on facebook, but I don't post much and am very shy about posting food photos there....So my trip reports  will continue to be here on Roadfood.

I have no shyness about posting food on Facebook and Twitter. In fact I just posted a photo of Bolivian saltenas and empanadas from a Falls Church, VA restaurant. What the problem is, is I now use my iPhone mostly for photos and it is extremely easy to post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instragram, Flickr and other photo sharing sites. It is difficult, comparatively, to post a photo here because it becomes a two step procedure and there is no automatic selecting of photos to add into a post. I can have a taken photo posted to Facebook or Twitter in less than a minute after taking it. With more social interaction going on with smartphones, traditional browser based message boards get skipped over.

The Pursuing Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches was a group I set up in a mere 5 minutes on Facebook and Anthony Bourdain jumped in as a member almost immediately. It has over a thousand members for one singular sandwich found mainly in the Midwest. I sometimes wonder if that many different people have viewed the Pork Tenderloin message thread that I have religiously helped cultivate here in Roadfood.com for several years.
 
In answer to Joe, the reason many message forums don't have the ability to upload directly is twofold. First, most use off the shelf software developed by others. Most all use BBC code of embedding photos by URL reference as each uploaded photo somewhere has a URL page. Secondly, unless the service invested in its own network and servers, they don't have the capacity to store the numerous photos so do so by the URL referencing. There are some boards that do have direct upload to the Forum but it is still a two-step process of upload and then reference into your message. And then all the popular smartphone apps only give you the ability to upload to the popular photo housing services directly from a camera app. The Photo app on the iPhone only directly uploads to Twitter and Facebook for instance. You generally can't do it directly to forums using browser software apps like Safari on the iPhone. The smartphone camera apps are sophisticated enough to be good enough for online posting. That's why I use my iPhone now maybe 90% of the time unless I am doing serious photography work. Right now I am on a trip to Washington. DC and didn't bother to bring any of my digital cameras.

I'm with you on this. I started a photo bucket account...er I think...to post photos here..It was a pain so I stopped...I have completely lost track of it.. Posting to FB is so easy.

The reason for my infrequent appearances in the last three or four years is because spouse and I decided to try to get healthier. We didn't go on any kind of regimented diet or join a gym - just cut back on soda and alcohol, ate larger amounts of vegetables and smaller amounts of meats, fried foods and snacks -common sense stuff.

Along the way, we have lost about 75 pounds and as our tastes changed, our interest in Roadfood waned. The prospect of a massive steak or deep fried hot dog has less appeal to us than the doctors at our check-ups saying, "Just keep doing what you're doing."

We still don't eat at chains and support local restaurants if their menu items fit into our eating plan. We are really enjoying retirement with lots of new interests and projects but pursuing many of the classic Roadfood offerings has slipped way down on our To Do list.

I have been wondering about a poster we met a few times here at local Pittsburgh get togethers, GeoNit.  Haven't seen any sign of him in a while and he hasn't logged in since June of 2011.  George is a really nice man and hopefully eveyrthing is ok, but I fear the worst.

Congrats on the weight loss. I often wonder if someone/some place would come up with a menu of items that were healthier and still satisfying like Roadfood. Right now, it isn't the same eating a protein burger at In 'n' Out. Most places have as a "healthy" thing a pice of chicken breast and a salad or two. If a place could come up with a healthy Double Double though, that would be great!

When I first found Roadfood I weighed about 240.  I did the Atkins thing and dropped about 50.  I have retained that weight for about 12 years.  I have not used any diet for years.  For some mysterious reason, my appetite has dramatically reduced?  Why?  I have no idea.  I use to be able to consume appetizers, large steak, baked potato, salad, several wines and dessert.  Now I cannot consume a fourth of that.  My desire for fat food is still the same, just nowhere as much.

Well into almost the middle of my seventh decade on this earth(63), I find my tastebuds still crave the delights but my stomach wants to limit the amount.  More often than not, on an outing, I'll have 2-3 appetizers and that's it - despite our original intention to eat out was often dessert since many desserts are hard to make for just 2 people. ( I have been a cook and still do).  I also will be more likely to have 4-5 small meals/snacks a day at home rather than a "Big Dinner" - and almost never have a Big Breakfast AND a Big Lunch on the same day.

Maybe Roadfood is doomed to our advanced ages! I'm 66 and in the past year, I eat very little. I bought some of those half bagels and I have a half of a half for breakfast with a dab of butter. 6 months ago I could go to our local bagel place and eat a whole garlic bagel with double jalapeno cream cheese. Now I can't eat cream cheese. I haven't eaten out in a Roadfood in a place in a year. Just something plain for me, a plain steak works fine, otherwise I eat strawberries or blueberries

Kland........not sure why..........but until recently, I had never gotten into Smoothies.  Take those 2 berries, add  banana.some milk and vanilla I/C.....dash of Vanilla.............and some ice cubes if you're daring! All Squashed up in a blender, topped with a bit of nutmeg, it's wonderful!  And if you are so inclined and the hour of the day is right, A healthy dose of Calico Jack Rum helps as well

I still am able to go out but have been dropping weight. I am below 200 for the first time in 25 years. Stllll go to pal's shanty, Cameo Cafe and other places ( a new favorite is the mekong Cafe, a Cambodian slice of heaven. )Blood sugar down, taste up. Have been eating a lot of unfired seafood. Miss old friends here but I've friended so many on Facebook. Still search the site 4 the new, still use it when i travel but have found a few other sites. will be heading to Hells canyon this summer so any info on lewiston,Idaho and clarkston Washington places would be helpful. found a couple spots that look promising.
