Missing Persons:

“You never knew exactly how much space you occupied in people’s lives.”
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is The Night
If you've been in SL for a significant length of time, you've probably had this happen. Someone on your friends list is regularly online and you chat with them semi-occasionally. One day, they disappear without warning. A week goes by, then two, then months. Maybe they suddenly died or were imprisoned or had a traumatic break and no longer log in anymore under that name. Who knows. 

The polite thing to do, if they didn't die, would be for them to put a notice in their profile that they are gone for an extended period so their friends won't wonder what happened. Just sayin'.
