Thank you!

As long as subsequent posts are prefaced with something morbidly clever like:

"...Hey folks, it's me, Eric from the grave!
I registered for a service that determines if my online presence halted for an extended period of time.
If y'all are getting this update, I hope the software picked an interesting topic, like custom bicycles!..."

I haven't seen Black Mirror so I have no idea what the program is about , but I had seen a few references to the program in the replies in the article I posted ......

I may catch up with it online and see how they deal with it .

I saw a similar story on a drama for channel 4 called black mirror. It did'nt have a happy ending. It was an interesting concept but a little weird though.

I know of at least one former poster here, who has died, and his posts still remain.
His profile is still 'up', and there he is, whenever old threads get 'bumped', he re-appears, smiling out of the thread.

So in a sense, I suspect that whether you sign-up for this App', or not,
-much of what you've already said on-line, will circulate,

going round and round, in 'cyber-space', forever.

I quite like that......

Strangely, I think I may find it a comfort. I miss some people so much. Of course I would know they were dead but not unlike looking at photos.

Another thing to worry about on a dating site. Is it a fake profile or a dead profile.

Never mind the dead, I have just tried to start a new thread but appear not to be able to. When one is banned from such activity is one notified or have I done something else wrong?

Afraid not Notts! You'll have to email a moderator to find out why that privilege has been taken away from you.
