You're right, he didn't insinuate. He came right out and straight to the point, if he thought you were lazy trash, he called you lazy trash. Just ask Lisa, the victim of his free pancake, 2 year rant over a promotion IHOP was running. Her and every family member of hers paid dearly over a post she made that was not to his liking.
Rest assured, ole Opi is around and reading daily. Even tossing in a post or two under a different name. Although he struggles to disguise his style of writing, he tries. He also attempted the same task on another local message board and had been outted there many times.
When several readers had closed in on his true identity, he could no longer take the heat and headed for the hills. His parting message was amusing, and a great attempt of throwing some off his trail, but too little too late, about 7 or 8 years too late to be exact.
One of his silver headed side kicks always managed to stay silent, while the other could never pass up one of his posts without stroking his ego, and oh how he loved that ego stroked, and what a great job she did of that too.
So, Mike, and others, don't be sad from Opi's absence, it is in name only he is gone.
