As you know, I track the search marketing forums, including many of the official search engine forums, to find the latest breaking news and issues that are important to the community. I pay particular close attention to what the official search engine representatives say in these forums.

It appears that Brett Yount, the community lead at the Bing Forums and Program Manager of Bing Webmaster Center, has gone missing in action. His last post was 20 days ago, on January 7th in a Bing Community thread.

I know he may have recently said things he probably shouldn't have. Did that lead to him being fired or replaced? I don't know. I certainly hope not. Brett was a ray of sun for people like me, who like to see search reps who are honest, forthcoming and simply good people.

Brett - we miss you - please come back. There are tons of webmasters who need your help and guidance in the Bing forum.

Forum discussion at Bing Community.

Update: Bing Tweeted:

Brett’s taking some personal time off. Unrelated to forums, for the record ^az
