Apparently, he's retired quite suddenly. Gave up the tools and took off.

Sometimes, people just have had enough. I had no problems with him, so I wish him luck.

Jimbonic Jackboot Juggernaut

A year ago, when I sought to ask ArbCom whether I had been afforded Due Process by Paul Mitchell, Tracy Walker, and the other jackbooted goons from IDCab, it was AGK who proxied my submission to ArbCom.

ArbCom declined to answer the question of whether the RfC was a normative instance of Due Process (and not a routine instance of a Spammish Inquisition). But the episode, while eminently forgettable, as FloNight blithely swept it under the rug, might have been one datum in AGK's decision to abandon the Puerile Pogrom Parade that Wikipedia has since revealed itself to be.

I thought that AGK guy seemed quite a decent character - And even wrote as much last month:
