Indeed it has...but decidedly less so if you choose to deny us your comics insight and wit in the future.

Say it ain't so, Otto.

As you would say: thank you for your comments. You've given me a lot to think about.

Don't go, you turned me onto Saudelli and taught me that I was a jackass. Hate to see you go.

Come off it, he will be back. "otto" made no mention this was permanent.

I think you all are over reacting.

Could it be Otto was injured in a freak fool-sensing apparatus accident which occurred when his device was overloaded?

Happy trails Otto, wherever your travels take you.

I knew something had to be up when he started that thread to wish Happy Holidays to Pat...

I thought that was really weird.

I, too, wonder why he's decided to leave.

My current theory;

Otto was a secondary sock puppet for a then regular poster, but that poster decided he preferred the Otto identity after a while. It turned out to be a safe beard to post thoughts behind and helped deflect the sting of personal attacks. "Otto" is still here, but is now posting under his actual name when he chooses to post.

What's an "Otto"? And didn't he already die in Crisis on Infinite Earths #8?

Wow, that's pretty interesting, and makes it all sond so much more interesting than it usually is. Maybe Frank Darabont will make a movie of it.

Farewell, Otto. Happy trails.

I'm with you JohnE, but I still think it's a "female" thing...something about being unable to resist getting in the last word. Again, I think the last word was spoken LONG ago, especially as far as Otto and Heidi are concerned...

But I'm not Heidi.
