    He will be missed and remembered.
    RIP
    It's almost as if all his overconfident, absolutist assertions were spoonfed to him by a trusted website or subreddit. Sheeple

          My condolences to the family. While I never frequented this forum, what little I saw of La Fayette's posts was enough to make it clear that he's a great poster and a very interesting person to talk to.

          Rest in peace.

            When I posted on the Civ2 forums, La Fayette was always helpful and polite. He added to the forums.


            My condolences to his family.

              Oh tragic day.

              His last post at Apolyton was actually an ominous one on October 6th 2005 in the thread: "New Ancient Empires PBEM created"
              in the Civ2-PBEM forum:

              Win98, but yet...
              ... it crashes.

              La Fayette's last post at CFC was October 5.

              The work he did on elegant solutions to scenarios makes him (along with Xin Yu) one of the foremost CivII problemists.

              http://apolyton.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2712&perpage=30&pagenumber=5

              and many other "Scenarios from the Community" threads in the CivII Strategy forum, mostly from 2002-2004.

              He was indeed the poet of CivII and has been one of the main reasons I have so enjoyed browsing here for five years.

              I miss him already.

                I was in that PBEM with La Fayette back in 2003.
                What a shock.
                My condolences to his family.
                I really don't know what to say.

                  I had corresponded privately with Michel in the summer when he told me of his cancer. I have been praying for him since, but his drop off of the forums in October did not look like a good sign. Several of us had tried to get in touch with him to let him know of our concern. Thank you, ST, for your persistence, and please pass on to Philippe all of our love for him and how much he meant to us all. I was hoping he would be alive to see his name in the Hall of Fame for his accomplishments, not his death.

                          I was fearing the worst, given his absence from these boards.

                          Michel, you will be missed. I learned a lot from your commentary and advice here, and always looked forward to your posts, filled as they were with insight and humour. Rest in peace.

                          ST, please pass on my condolences to Philippe and the rest of his family.

                            Yes, Slow, please pass on our regards to his family. The next time I'm in Liverpool I plan to visit Ivor's grave (if Stu is willing to pass on the location), and I would also like to visit Michel's the next time I am in the area. If Phillipe is willing to pass the location to you, then I shall gladly send a PM so that I can visit his grave the next time I am in that area.
