Folks:

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I share this news that our long-time friend "Neil" here on AzB has passed on:

Many folks here know Neil, have probably had lots of in-depth discussions (or arguments) with him, but irrespective of which side of the aisle you were on with respect to Neil, you have to acknowledge that he was a man of conviction. He stuck to his guns, and was always willing to explain why.

We will miss Neil, and this place has lost an avid contributor.

RIP, my friend.

One of the good guys!

Kinda checking who we have lost while I have been away. Surprised to find Neil on the list. Neil contributed a lot with his what would you do threads and in discussions. Neil was a fairly rare fellow, you could discuss something with him. If you disagreed you would be met with logical support for his position and a willingness to discuss things until we either agreed or agreed to disagree. Sometimes we discussed things for days with never a harsh word. I don't need to tell anyone how rare that is.

I am left feeling blindsided and genuinely saddened. Rest in peace.

Neil definitely was a force here. As Hu is doing, I am checking in occasionally and sad to hear this.
