Default Did something happen to conky?

I hope this isn't insensitive, but does any one know if conky really died? His last post was the 17, and it has been updated recently that he or she has passed away from cancer.

Does anyone know conky personally?

Because if they have really passed away, that would be really sad.

It seems fake... someone comes on to edit a random post of his and just writes that? I'm not sure who would do something like that... but it still does seem fake.

Considering the last post made by Conky was 2 days prior to the edit, I'm inclined to believe it was done by a friend or family member who had access to the computer with the account on it, and that it is true.

I can't fault the friend/family member for letting us know in that manner as it's a difficult time for all, but inserting the comment as an edit of an old(er) post had the effect of it not coming up on our radar.

I didn't know Conky, but if any friends and/or family members are current HWC members, please pass on my condolences.

I don't think someone would really joke about this. Maybe a member of his family wrote that on the forum.

My condolences

We're looking into it but at this time I will err on the side of belief and offer my condolences.
