Knowledge is power.
The saying " Out of sight is out of mind " is also still valid.
We usually forget someone who is not in touch with us.Many once-good relationships get lost due to lack of frequent contact. Unused iron tool gets rusted and may become useless too.
Not long ago, when some active forum members used to be absent, other members used to feel concerned and forum posts used to be raised on that matter.But slowly that sentiment also has come down-naturally so.
Hence I concur with the author and say that it is imperative to be 'present' and active to show others that we are 'live and kicking' and avoid getting forgotten. The world- virtual and real- is so crowded that if one is lagging, absent or inactive, they will be pushed behind by the ever surging crowd.

Even this challenging situation would ease
While being a member of ISC, has been our passion and sustenance of the same has been our hobbies. We contribute regularly in the different forums where we are rewarded points for our contributions. Absence from this site would affect our points earnings. However, the points can be compensated with a little extra labour with the maintenance of positivity.
But sometimes we may require some breaks also. We have to plan our breaks in such a way that our progress will not get hampered. Sometimes our circumstances force us to go for a pause. That we can't avoid. Once we restart working we should see how best we can compensate for the time lost and how we will cope with the backlog of the work so that we will get on to our normal position.
