What a horrible loss.
I'm glad I had the pleasure to meet him in Monnickendam.
I remember him fondly.

What a shock, I'm speechless.

Abraham was one of Subsim's most defining characters. This is truly a loss for all of us...

Hard to believe something like this could have happened to him, I mean that's just an amazing mess to be in. By being a witness in something like that, it sounds to me like he really put his life on the line. I truly hope the people that did this are brought to justice.

I had the fortune of becoming a pretty good friend with Abraham and was wondering this last year why he hadn't spoken much with me.We had talked about the Lord and I know for a fact he believed in Jesus and the Resurection and had spoken some of wanting his mom, I think, to know JC.

anyways I know in my heart he would not commit suicide and has been given a white robe and told to rest a while.

Rest in Peace my brother in Christ...see you soon.

Psalms 59

[1] Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
[2] Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
[3] For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
[4] They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold.
[5] Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
[6] They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
[7] Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
[8] But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
[9] Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.
[10] The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
[11] Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
[12] For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
[13] Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
[14] And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
[15] Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
[16] But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
[17] Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.

Reading back on some posts....this was classic as it gets I think...


I plan to write a book in 2007.

"Words And Opinions. How to moderate in the times of the internet. A quickguided tour by A. B. Raham"

And I'll write an essay, reviewing it

That will be my second book...

How about: "FATAL ATTRACTION - An in-depth study of the diverging and converging opinions of Skybird & Abraham on the forums"
I'll write the book - and plug it shamelessly on the Subsim forums - and you can write the introduction (which should not beat the book in size!).

Four key witnesses dead!!

The plot certainly thickens
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

I had never been directly involved with Abraham on Subsim but I have read many of his posts and he was a very balanced poster/moderator. The likes of which shall be missed here.
