There is now another topic about Paul's passing, so I will close this topic unless someone has a good reason to keep it open. Two topics concerning the same thing can be confusing.

The other topic is "Paul Petrea - LinC Founder Dead At 52".

Paul, may you find peace on the path that you must follow.  I never did ask him why he moved to Cambodia after so many years building a successful forum?  Does anyone closer to him know?
