Since everyone seems to have their own theory on _why's disappearance, I figured I may as well add mine to the pile.
While I doubt the authenticity of the "whoiswhytheluckystiff" blog site, I think that the current plethora of recent stories on the death of online anonymity may have played a role. While _why may not have yet been outed, he may have thought it prudent to terminate his online identity before it could be traced by to his real life person.
Wherever he's gone, though, I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of people who appreciate all his contributions to the Ruby world.
Thank you, _why!
