What happened to Muppet?

THere was a guy here called Muppet who had turned this forum into a personal blog. I come here after a few months and see that he is gone.

Where is he?

{In the unlikely event this is a kosher query}

He now posts under his own name. I leave finding out which one to you...

Hidden under a new alias - sort of.

He was arrested for aiding and abetting an unnamed terrorist organisation operating in the Catskills, he subsequently shaved off his moustache and grew a beard to retain some anonymity.

Pointing him out in the street is discouraged, he may not be dangerous but if encountered in a bookshop he will keep you talking for some time whilst he steals your table and makes notes in his Diary of a Terrorist which is cleverly concealed within a Fantasy novel of some indeterminate nature.

"He met Chuck Norris."

Dam it. You beat me. The person next door goes by the name Muppet Norris.

So Muppet married Chuck Norris?

Oh, Mark, you're such a kidder.

"Mark Warner" (not his real name, go look at "www.SoulsOfGlass.com" if you're curious) used to be "muppet" (with a lower-case 'm'). I suppose he still is, though he rarely uses that name anymore.

His saga on the ?off board is long and long-winded. From average joe, to Moderator, to JHC (he changed his name), to being forbidden to change his name, to the dancing bananas, to being demoted from Moderator, to medical problems, to buying his child-hood home (which happens to be built out of logs, how cool is that?).

Oh, and I left out the Crazy Asian Lady at Starbucks entirely.

He's one of the people who make ?off what it is today. You'll have to decide what that is. It's colorful, in any event. I've been hugely entertained, from time to time.

Allan, holy God you are the biggest loser on the planet.

Do you wear flannel shirts? I bet you wear flannel shirts.

Also, what's with the sudden rash of imposters?

OP: why do you care what happened to him?

Imposters? On ?Off? You don't say so!

Just to emphasise, imposters will be deleted, this will affect your karma.

What if it's *really* funny?

I thought you gave up on being a moderator. Man, I must be really behind here.

He did but then he felt all vindicated when my moderatorship was revoked.

Several seismic shifts have taken place since then. Offers of women of easy virtue were not, sadly, involved.

By seismic shifts he means muppet's not a moderator anymore, and so he can safely feel as though he's not a prat by being included in any club to which I have a membership.

I also get to feel self righteous at undeleting posts where I appear in a less than angelic light.

Self righteous you have in excess Simon. Self righteous bends the floor under the bed you rest in at night. Self righteous swirls around you like a bad smell.
