that I have locked a thread, and it's on the thread you mentioned because it's not acceptable forum etiquette to ask why someone hasn't appeared for a while.

There could be many reasons, and the person concerned may not want some of them to be discussed in public. The whole idea behind having forum usernames is that it guarantees anonymity, and it's essential that people can come and go as they see fit, without having it discussed in a forum thread.
