My best guess: he gave up the persona after being outed as Martin Peck.

This was my news of it:

Hello, illustre group of recipients. I made a bit of research
into the matter, wanting to figure out which e-mail exchange
made "coderman" think I belong into a list of troublemakers
even if I do my best to always discuss rationally - and how
such a list would come about with so many respected names
along mine. Well, I was successful. Here is what I found.


Mr coderman admits to go by the real name "Martin R. Peck".
He caused some confusion by promoting a fake NSA program that
didn't actually exist. On the Whonix forum he "anonymously"
reported his own news, introducing himself as follows:

> Martin R. Peck, software engineer, has created this BigSun automated
redaction system, which he has offered to provide to the NSA.

At the same time I had been having an exchange with him
where I had openly dared to doubt the safety of the debian
binary distribution system - a threat that he tried to
downplay by comparing it with much less likely threats.


We didn't actually arrive at any inflammatory tones, he
just disappeared after his identity had been lifted and
his argumentation started to look suspicious more than anything.

Disappearing was a smart move, as I had indeed forgotten
entirely about him. Probably so have you.

What do I gather from this? Keeping my hands off of debian
or any of its derivates has been a good choice. Same goes
for fedora. Everybody get your gentoo skills back in shape,
or help Guix/Nix get ready for prime time.
