Did MSNdude Get Fired?

MSN Butterfly ManWe all know MSN Search is now Windows Live Search, but does that mean lose our MSN representative in the forums? MSNdude, who patrols the Microsoft Search forum at WebmasterWorld has not posted a reply or thread since October 17th.

The last post was in a thread named Does msnbot obey meta tag noindex? but nothing since.

Was he fired? Is he sick? I hope all is well. We do miss you, just as much as we miss GoogleGuy.

Yea, I know your alive, you have a blog at mattcutts.com/blog that is active. GoogleGuy on the other hand, well - I think an SEO insulted him or her and had a nervous breakdown or something... Those are the rumors... ;-)

The very active & helpful msndude was Greg H. He said msndude is a rotating title/responsibility. Maybe it got passed on to a less attentive MSN employee. Hope not, Greg is a good guy.
