Rumor: Rob Chesnut MIA? (file under brain drain)

Brain_drainUPDATE: Heard from Rob this evening. He is just on sabbatical this summer and will a) be at eBay Live and b) back in the Fall (phew!)

So file this one under “Brain recharge vs. drain”

Original post follows:

There’s a rumor circulating in the eBay community that Rob
Chesnut has left/is leaving eBay.  If true, it would be a major bummer as Rob+team have seriously cranked up the efforts to thwart the bad guys on eBay and it seems to be having some impact.

Can anyone confirm/deny this one?  I wonder where a guru of online fraud would go… hmmm.
