There is/was a blogger, Ross Fountain, of Unenlightened Commentary. Ross is/was well known in the blogging fraternity, particularly by people at OoL and other places. One of the good guys, so to speak.
I just received an email and shall run it as is:
I’m emailing you because I recently discovered my late brother, Ross, kept a blog, and I saw that you had commented on some of his posts
I had no idea he had been keeping it until after his death, but I couldn’t help thinking about how to let people know that he won’t be posting anymore.
Ross died three weeks ago in a freak accident, which we are still struggling to come to terms with. I don’t know what you can do, or even how often you read his blog, but I had to let someone know.
The name was given.
If it is as stated, then I’m appalled. As I’ve been ill myself [still am] and therefore not up with blogging/tweeting in the past two weeks, apart from the occasional post, perhaps this has already been dealt with.
This makes the third blogger/tweeter who was close to many lost in the past month and I’m starting to wonder about it.
