I am sad to announce that Lenny Poryles, known here as LEP, passed away yesterday. He was an active and wise poster here in ET's prime and a regular attender at meet-ups.
His last diary is here.
Index of Frank's Diaries
To his family, sympathy. To Lenny, peace. Dors en paix.
My contacts with Lenny have unfortunately remained limited to a few brief meetings during ET-meet ups in Paris. Even on these occasions his bluff spirit and joie de vivre were immediately recognizable. His witty sense of humour and humility he plied online always seemed to mask his professionalism and vast knowledge about the world. ET on its heyday was rated highly for its intellectual capacity and diversity - yet to me Lenny was one of those who contributed heavily to the most crucial of elements: a warm and empathic community. He's part of the reason why I am still around.
My thoughts to his family and close friends, I'll mourn this loss with them - and I'll cherish the days when our lives crossed.
Condolences to his family.

you are the media you consume.
Such a warm kind heart and a passion for life.
My condolences to his family.

Condolences to his family for their loss.
