Anyone know whatever happened to Cogitoergosometimes?
I thought she was very insightful and helpful in relationships.

There have been a few regulars like Buffy in feminism that have vanished recently. Whatgowaan?

usualsuspect333 Sun 28-Jun-15 12:28:42

Maybe she name changed.

FinallyLearntToBudget Sun 28-Jun-15 12:32:22

Yes - she was a name that really stood out to me when I first joined MN (in 2012).

Optimist1 Sun 28-Jun-15 12:34:43

Agreed, Cogito has left a hole in MN! I wondered about name changing, usual , but can't see any poster exhibiting the same combination of wisdom and kindness that she did. sad

MadeMan Sun 28-Jun-15 13:27:19

Maybe she ran away with the DHL courier.

mrstweefromtweesville Sun 28-Jun-15 13:29:58

Has there been a MN purge?

regretsihaveafew Sun 28-Jun-15 13:37:45

I miss her measured and honest responses full of common sense and logic. I hope she's ok.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 28-Jun-15 13:39:08

She's definitely missed. If she's changed names then I've not recognised her.

BeyonceRiRiMadonnna Sun 28-Jun-15 13:40:54

She did got AWOL for a while but she's definitely back, I've seen her commenting on recent threads

Keepithidden Sun 28-Jun-15 14:31:29

So glad she's back, I always liked to picture her and AnyFucker as the same person, so often saying the same thing, but the method of delivery was completely different!

Great posters and taught me a lot. MN wouldn't be the same without them, like FWR without Buffy...

Optimist1 Sun 28-Jun-15 14:53:20

Sadly I don't think she is back - did an Advanced Search for posts from 1st of June and nothing comes up. There's someone with a similar name but IMHO not the same poster!

Keep - your observations about AF being an alterego are brilliant - the two posters on MN who always hit the nail on the head. (I fantasise that AF is in fact Janet Street-Porter!)

Atenco Sun 28-Jun-15 15:41:32

Another one here missing Cogito and hoping she is ok

brokenhearted55a Sun 28-Jun-15 15:52:08

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

AnyFucker Sun 28-Jun-15 16:07:55

I don't know where she is either. Some people just seem to disappear for reasons of their own. I don't think she has name changed.

AnyFucker Sun 28-Jun-15 16:09:24

Somehow you knew a thread was in "safe" hands when she appeared smile

MadeMan Sun 28-Jun-15 17:41:22

"I fantasise that AF is in fact Janet Street-Porter!"

I fantasise that every person who posts on here is really just the mulitple personas of one single slightly mad brilliant mind, in effect talking to itself.

shirleybasseyslovechild Sun 28-Jun-15 17:47:18

I have never ever noticed any similarity between cogito and AF

Greenrememberedhills Sun 28-Jun-15 17:48:37

I was wondering that, too.

Ouchbloodyouch Sun 28-Jun-15 17:49:29

I hope all is well wherever she may be

MadeMan Sun 28-Jun-15 17:50:56

Used to be another poster called Dahlen who's gone as well. Think they gave decent advice too if I remember rightly.

handfulofcottonbuds Sun 28-Jun-15 17:52:47

So many on here talk a lot of sense and have helped a lot of people, maybe even without realising.

Cog is very respected on here I always thought she was on the payroll grin

Come back Cog.

Anniegetyourgun Sun 28-Jun-15 17:53:40

Or maybe she just got sick of the number of posters who spelled it "Cognito"!

MadeMan Sun 28-Jun-15 17:55:24

Their legends will live on deep within the many stone halls of Mumsnet Towers.

BradleyCooperwillbemine Sun 28-Jun-15 17:57:13

I miss her too. I do hope all is ok with her and would love for her to come back.

Walkacrossthesand Sun 28-Jun-15 17:57:34

'Izzyizin' is another one who suddenly disappeared a year or so back. I guess we'll never know why.
