I remember well the thread about Akita, specially this part:
"I must recognize that I did not read the note, "just clicking a flower away" "
I wonder, if it was the only time that the image was removed by just clicking a flower, a pet, .... away. I wrote a letter to Akita, he didn't answer. I was very sad as he was a nice gentle guy.
I think that one has a right to tell about the reasons of leaving the site, temporary or not. Then we know at least he/she is well and there is no worry that for instance is ill. It also happens. And there is no embarassment when after some time he/she wants to return.
