Re: RAZD
xong, I am just so, so sorry to hear that. My heart goes out to you, your family and all RAZD's loved ones.

There will be more to say as and when the tribute thread gets promoted, but for now I'll just say that RAZD was the best of us here at EvC. He will be missed enormously.

Re: RAZD
My sympathy also to RAZD's family
I learnt a lot from him, especially his Correlation's thread, as I journeyed out of YEC.
He will be missed.

Re: RAZD
I learned a lot from reading his posts. He was clearly smart and very able to organize complex things.

He was astonishingly patient. He must have been very nice to know in real life.

We will miss him a lot.

I am very sorry.

This is awful.
I have a fear of deaths happening between May 20 and June 5, especially to animals. Seems like a lifelong pattern in my experience. 2020 has been dreadful this June.

I am sorry RAZD will not get to see the 2020 election and the coronavirus play out to the conclusion. His time stopped too soon.

Re: RAZD
Surprising, I thought he was gonna pull through for longer. Damn it all to hell!

His most terrific words of wisdom here inspire me to no end. A truly wonderful man. I am honored to have shared the world with him for a moment.

Best wishes R.A.Z.D! My stein is raised high in your name! Prost!

Re: RAZD
I am really sorry to hear this!!!!! I am pretty sure your brother was the best educated and smartest person I have met on the web. I learned a lot from him. His influence here will continue on.

Re: RAZD
NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! He's come so far, we are not ready to lose him. Please keep us informed, Xong, and if he is coherent enough please let him know we are thinking fondly of him and if he needs anything not to hesitate to ask.

Best wishes, RAZD

***Edit to add****

I just read further and see that RAZD, our eminent scholar, has passed on. I mourn for his family and I mourn for EvC who I know is so heavy of heart right now.

Re: RAZD
I was just wondering where Raz was these days. I have just found this.

Oh shit....

He was sorta kinda my EvC Nemesis for a brief period and drove me mad at times. But I massively enjoyed our extensive arguments.

I am genuinely gutted by this news.

Re: RAZD
Please, Straggler, leave a few words in the Memoriam thread In Memoriam: RAZD.

I am antifa.
