IIRC, he was sent on vacation a long time ago, and just never came back.

I get into funks where I've got nothing to say, looking in but not posting. But two years would be a long stretch.

He just kept posting articles like some kind of news feed and it annoyed some people.

Started posting what some members apparently considered click bait thread starters. And many of those were about things like solar energy, Elon Musk and Tesla. In my observation, those went over like lead balloons for many replying. Iirc had some back and forth with some members that didn't particularly like his posts or thoughts. Then for whatever reason he got sent on vacation, which of his own choice apparently he made permanent. That's my take.

I did appreciate most of his posts/replies however unfortunate about his "clickbait" type posting. He was a valuable member of the forum so he will be missed, however I have always been very appreciative of the BITOG community and forum moderators since this place has been well maintained compared to other forums that I have been a member of.
