It is with sadness that we share a story aired on NPR’s All Things Considered last week. In it, a fondly-remembered and much-missed member of the forums named Robespierre is memorialized by the long-time Fodorites who knew him well. The piece is part of a larger series called the “Obituary Project,” and you can listen to it here.
The travelers in our forums comment on the piece, and remember Robespierre, on this thread.
Robespierre’s contributions will be missed. This is a powerful reminder that despite the geographical distances between us, real and lasting human connections can be forged in an online community.
