    Does anybody live near him or know him well enough personally to call him?

    I've been debating whether to post this, but it appears there are quite a few concerned parties who should know: On 8/27 Steve's phone number (at least the number I have) was out of service, and no one answered the door at his residence or responded to my note, although everything looks normal and inhabited from the exterior.

    If anyone has productive information, or a logical reason to remove this post, please email me.

    I hope we hear from him soon... I miss his advice and humor. I'm really getting concerned.

    Bugs has been at this longer than any of us. He's a good guy who cares about carnivorous plants and carnivorous plant growers. I don't know what's happened to him, but if he owes plants to people, I can't imagine that he's going to try to sneak off without paying for them. Give me a break - he'll practically force you to tell him your mailing address if you let on that you don't have his dwarf T-form D. dichotoma.
    For those of you worried about your plants; Bugs will keep them alive until they can be shipped to you. For those of you worried about him; I'm worried too, but it's not polite to start rumors about him flaking out on trades just because there's been unexpected trouble. It's obviously something beyond him simply dropping the ball, so have some compassion. I think we should just agree that his presence is missed and needed and leave things at that.

    Good post Seedjar, well articulated and VERY good advice.

    I haven't had the chance to actually speak with him but we've PMed back and forth a bunch and he is quite a character, I really do miss his presence here and the longer he is incommunicado the more worried I get- Forbes' post there kinda gave the the bad kind of goosebumps, let's hope that whatever the problem, Bugweed is too busy beating it SILLY to get back here at the moment. That's what I'm stickin with.

    I want to give everyone an update on Steve (Bugweed) and to help quell the rumors and conjecture. Steve is physically fine. There is no medical issue. I am not at liberty to go into details but, he is going through a bit of a rough time and some possible major life changes. He is focusing his energy on that at the moment. He appreicates everyones concern and I have expressed that to him. He also wishes to have his privacy at this time. I will let you know if I hear anything else. Hold good thoughts for Steve.
