It has recently come to our attention that long time poster Idealist707 passed away in Stockholm, Sweden on June 10, 2013. Our heartfelt condolences go out to all his family and friends. To those of you who knew him from and from outside this blog, you know he was an outspoken and colorful character who added much flavor to the conversations here. As a tribute to him and his contributions, this thread has been established for you to share in not just in his loss, but share in your memories of him, for no one is truly gone so long as they live in our memories.
Rest in peace, Idealist707.
This blog is richer for having known you and poorer in your absence.
(Of note, thank you to poster Malisha who informed us of this sad news and to poster Darren Smith for suggesting a memorial thread.)
