I sent her a birthday wish on Facebook and she "liked" it, so she's still around. Her house phone works, but nobody ever answers. So she's okay, but I don't know any more than that.

i've been reading on here in the leader's group and elsewhere that this kind of thing happens a lot. where members and leaders just stop logging in and no one knows what happened. unfortunately there isn't much that can be done. she's still a member of this team and has an active account on SparkPeople .. it's up to her whether she chooses to login and post or not.

So she was just removed w/no notice to the group that people had lost touch w/her?

"Ironically", reading way back when this group lost a lot of core people it was not Courtney jumping down people's throats criticizing what was written so I guess Courtney formed all these rules & hired an "enforcer"?

Anyway--all that is the past & I'm sorry to hear no one has had any contact w/her.

As I wrote I haven't had much interaction w/this group (though do miss the "old timers" & welcome the newcomers) so hope the group "tone" & dynamics has become much more positive to be a safe & friendly & helpful place for all.

All my best to you & all the other members...

Ironically enough Courtney is the one who suggested most (if not all) of the "rules" and such. She had me post them on the team to help enforce them.

According to SparkPeople Support she has not logged into her account for a number of months and she was removed as Team Leader but remains a Team Member.

She hasn't actively used her Facebook account since July 9 (one status update). Apparently her birthday was July 6. Last post before that was June 4. And before that was January 16. In between there were a few random LIKES of things but they could easily be autoposts or triggered from another site.

If memory serves she was freshly out of inpatient psych treatment and was dealing with a new regime of medications and lots of family drama as usual. I think she had hand surgery in Dec or Jan that she was recovering from as well.

Larissa (Diane) on here has mentioned she's tried calling Courtney but her phone went out of service awhile back. She hasn't responded to messages, mails, or topics on here nor on Facebook nor personal email messages since January I believe. I think I did get a text response the afternoon of the Boston Marathon bombing that said she was OK. I know I sent a message to ask but maybe I never got a response. When was the NYC/Mass superstorm and all the flooding? maybe that's the last time I heard from her via text.

That's the most I know.

I basically "dropped out" of this group after being active when it seemed to be a lot of rule-making (don't write about this or that) & nitpicking & "know-it-alls" who complained about the same thing over & over but when the whole group joined in offering legitimate, helpful suggestions each one was shot down--"Already tried that & it didn't work." OR "That's a stupid idea." You get the feel of it--negative, belligerent & consumed w/self rather than helping others.

However, Courtney was one who always reached out to others in a friendly, empathetic way so what happened to her as a team leader here?

I'm looking through the topics, but don't see one that addresses that.

I know she had a lot of stress in her life (Don't we all?) so perhaps she had to quit, but I would appreciate being told where to go to find out info. about her departure.

I will miss her a lot...
