Really weird. Google last cached his profile in November. Check it out before it is gone. Maybe you'll find some clue?
Nah, I don't think the government got him. He's very young, a teenager, and somebody in his family, like a parental character of some sort, probably stopped him.
He said very little about his situation in Egypt, just he was having some kind of problem.
He gave a lot of info about himself in his public postings, so someone who knew him may have realized who "Kalliope" was.
I hope he will resurface somewhere, with a nice interesting spout of words.
I hope you're right. It's not difficult to find a typical story about how horrible atheists are treated in Egypt.
If he were in actual danger it would be from radical Islamists there, not the gov't. But such people wouldn't close his accounts, so family interference makes more sense (perhaps to protect him).
The Egyptian atheist who was imprisoned for his blogging has been released.
It brings up questions of how one protects one's anonymity if that's necessary. Kalliope gave a lot of info about himself in public, so he might make another account and not reveal much this time. I hope so :) he was a bit of a friend and I miss him.
Yep, I suggested to him that he could get out by getting a college scholarship to a less oppressive country, like the U.S..
I wonder how hard it is for gifted students who aren't U.S. citizens to get a scholarship to come here.
Me too - he was the first to respond and welcome me on this site. Very bright young man.
