I pulled up her profile and checked her posting history: last post was January 5. Hope everything's OK. It's worrisome when someone who posts regularly suddenly stops with no explanation.

Indeed it is. Over the past year I've sent direct messages to two Retirement Forum regulars who hadn't been heard from for several months; both responded that they were O.K. and thanked me for caring. Both are back on a fairly regular basis.

One whom I didn't try to contact is Caladium, once a real regular in the Retirement Forum whose last post was over a year and a half ago on May 6, 2014. She did announce in that post "I'm taking a break for a few days or maybe longer, but not to worry, I'll be back." She went on to explain that she had let something someone wrote get under her skin.

She had said she'd been in the hospital. We're having a wicked cold spell up north and that could really compound the effects of any illness. If anyone reaches her let us know if she's alright.

On another note, I can't believe I've been on CD this many years and have just now noticed next to the thread names on the main page in Retirement the orange envelope icons, some with white arrows and others with padlocks on them, once in a while a blue envelope. Whatever do these mean??

I can answer only about the padlocks, which mean that the thread has been locked.

I think the ones with arrows means you have posted in that thread.

Of course you can, but you can't add any new posts. On City-Data, "locked" means we can still read the thread, but it is closed to any new input.
