Welcome to the forum.

Re: Welcome Aboard, Michael Harold

Seems like Editor Bob's user doesn't exist anymore.
Would it be a voluntary or an involuntary flounce?

Semi-standard flounce, they quit without telling anybody and then come back as a new user.

Correct Editor Bob is no longer on the list of EF admins.

Which explains why ennui asked "what is the process to delete me as a user" but does not explain FMF's reply to contact the said nonexistent Editor Bob?

Editor Bob was online yesterday, the account was deleted later during the day, I guess he did not appreciate you posting his photo & name on the forum.

Is he still able to post in EF considering his circumstances?

Bit of a dick move, but hardly invasion of privacy when the person has their picture up on the companies website.

His name and photo were on the local website. The local is the owner of this website.

True, upon the realisation that having your name and picture in the public domain could be used exactly so.

It's all pretty having a webpage full of smiling team members until someone "shock horror" looks at the page!

It is not the same. Being a part of work team professional presentation (in a brochure or online) and being flamed by angry online people who were mostly wrong about the accusations (they had their own ideas how admin should work)..aren't the same things. I can only ask the community to treat admin in a civil, respectful and supportive way. They are making our place better. We all are. Members have it all in their own hands, pretty much.

And before anyone starts with - "but money...clicks". Yeah. No.

However a clear breach of forum rules & protocol, from a long term member who should have known better.

You may find there are several users here on EF whose identities can be traced purely on account of what they say about themselves . Maybe they do that knowingly or maybe they are not aware of how obvious it is .

But that’s not the same as assuming you have their permission to post their picture here without asking .
