Sadly his employers got wind of the information he was providing here, and, although well-intentioned, he felt it best to stop posting in case his employers were not impressed.
I am pretty sure that, had he been forced to provide his real name when registering, not only would this forum have been less well informed, but he would now be unemployed.
