Over the last two years, Russell's alleged postings on the fan site have grown more infrequent. It is unclear whether the Army became aware of Russell's participation on the site, or if he simply lost interest.
In August 2012, a month before the Daily Caller story, a message appeared on the site that said KeithOlbermann.org was being discontinued, but the site is still up and running. Russell, however, no longer seems to be posting there, at least not under the moniker of 'Michael' or 'Lazarus.' In his brief conversation with U.S. News, Russell said he has "decided to be no longer active on the site."
Some of the users 'Michael' attacked still remain, including the user 'Michael' wrote had a "syphilitic, blackened EVIL brain." That user, who did not respond to request for comment, did write a response to 'Michael' online: "I would think that as a mental health professional you should try a little of your own medicine."
