Hi everyone.

AARoads most prolific poster kphoger has not posted since the early part of September.  I reached out in November through PM but received no response.  I understand people can take breaks from the forum, but I just wanted to know if anyone knows him and if he is OK.

Thanks.

He's taken long breaks from the forum (and probably the Internet in general) before, so I'm guessing he's just doing that and will resurface later. I hope he's doing well and enjoying himself too.

I think this question has been asked before, though a search isn't helping me find it, and I recall the answer then being much the same as what Scott5114 says.

In my mind he's taken a break from the forum to go on a quest to rocket up the "lowest route you haven't been on" leaderboard.

I think I'm going to imagine anyone who takes a break from the forum to be doing this from now on.

This isn't out of the ordinary. kphoger was absent from the forum for at least the first few months of 2014.

kphoger routinely disappears for months at a time from the forum.

In fact, we've already had a thread about kphoger during this absence, back in October:

He’s disappeared for long stretches numerous times in the past.  He even forgot his login information one time.

A far-fetched but possible conspiracy is that he secretly has two accounts, and hasn't logged into his "main" one since September. He could be posting among us as we speak and we don't know it.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

He used a kphoger2 account he created to let the mods know that he forgot his password to his real account.  The dude doesn’t strike me as someone who would go all Marf Sock Puppet.

Yup, this normal for him. He volunteers a lot of his time and periodically takes breaks from the forum.

He made a dummy alternate in order to build an alibi and draw attention away from his real alternate.

Or, are we all FritzOwl?

FritzOwl is away too….

Considering I saw what the host website Fritz was originally housing his images on entailed I just assumed there some sort of mad scientist dynamic there.

I believe we can look to The Walrus for the explanation:  "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together."

I can only assume that this means that not only that we are all FritzOwl, but FritzOwl is all of us.  Maybe this also applies to kphoger?

Goo goo g'joob.

Or maybe we all are Devo.  I dunno ...

The good news when he comes back is he'll see how genuinely missed he is.

Users take long breaks from the forum sometimes. And sometimes they don't come back. That's normal.

You wanted a break?  Revisionist history?
