    We have no way of knowing more than hi IP address and email. Someone with skill could prob get info with his IP.

    He joined in 2006. His last post was 2013, but he logged on in March 2014 the last time.

    No, that is not true. No one is required to enter their actual name when registering; we don't even vet e-mail addresses for registrations (at least not until the last month). We only know real names if someone puts that in one of their posts, or sends it via a PM to an administrator or moderator.

    I thought I saw the same thing you did. I don't post much just read mostly.

    Yeah, I just went back through his posts for the last three years and couldn't find what I was looking for. I really like FO so I would definitely remember him making this comment. He stuck around for a bit and didn't appear to be leaving so at the time I didn't think to follow up on it or want to pry into his affairs. I was definitely bothered by his comment.

    He is a fantastic contributor to this community.

    Some of you may be thinking of this from his profile info:

    It was in the body of a post where I saw 1998.

    If I recall, he was mad over the 'suicide' thread and the mods at the time not allowing it to be discussed. Times have changed with assisted suicide legal in Canada and some States.

    I searched his latest posts and it looks like the next-to-last thread he participated in was indeed about suicide - he thought that some people seemed to be conflating end-of-life care with suicide, and he was worried that vulnerable members might confuse the two issues. There was another thread he posted on a day later about a second-grader pushed to the side in a classroom photo, but it looks like the suicide thread upset him a great deal. Not sure if that's why he quit posting, but the timeline ends in mid-June 2013.

    No the administrators don't know anyone's real identity unless they choose to share it. I do know that FO was very private but there was a member (I forget who) who visited him in real life when they went down to the keys.

    I remember who that was. Maybe they could update us if they know anything. (Not gonna name drop, but if that person should feel compelled to reach out to him, that'd be great. Otherwise, gotta be content respecting both their privacy, I reckon.)
