listen mate, the guy is not closing his account... and as har-tru has already stated, he should probably retire from this forum and start afresh at another message board... everyone is feeling some heavy second hand embarrassment for him... so you should probably ban him or something for his own sake out of pity... many posters (aka me) will not let him forget this and stop him from moving on...
People have done worse and are still posting on this board.
Look at the George W. Hitler who once was banned for having god knows how many double accounts. The guy actually held conversations between himself and his double accounts. Now, after years passed and a name change, Action Jackson is a moderator on GM.
There is no amount of embarrassment that someone can have on this board and not survive it as long as the person had the cojones or is simply too arrogant to let it bother him/her.
