Throughout the place known as h2g2, amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday researchers who are trying to say hello to each other, you will find what can only be described as the "remains" of a researcher. The signs are subtle to the untrained eye, but they are there. For example, you could one day be absent-mindedly be looking through the back pages of The Post, and suddenly find an article that catches your attention. You wonder who was the genius who wrote the article.
But when you click on his/her name you find the horrifying remains of who they were: An endless list of "no posting" messages where they have subscribed to forums which have now moved on from the conversations that they once posted; The out of date material on their page relating to Bill Clinton, or similar - or even worse nothing but a "Good bye" message.
This is a sad reminder of what our pages may look like some day, when we grow weary of the hustle and bustle of h2g2. These "carcases" will be our lasting tribute to ourselves. So before you leave don't forget to clear up your mess, and lock the door - because you don't know what nosey researcher will come along in the distant future in the vein hope that you will respond.
