Amongst all of the changes you’ve no doubt noticed here at XBIZ with the recent launch of our latest version, is the disappearance of our friend, Webmaster Rocco.

While I understand that Rocco may still make appearances in our print publications, XBIZ World and XBIZ Video; he will no longer be featured here on the website.

I asked Rocco about his absence and he told me he was feeling vulnerable over his ‘2257 compliance, and was worried about prosecutions during the run up to the U.S. elections; so lying low from now on was how he hoped to cope.

Personally, I think it was more than just that. I’ve watched Rocco’s adventures for years as he struggled to keep pace with a rapidly evolving industry, and sadly I related a little too much to some of his antics. I think it all just got to him – or maybe he just grew up.

Maybe it was the pressure of dwindling returns from escalating investments; maybe he really wasn’t too sure about his paperwork; maybe it was just time for him to move on…

Regardless of where he’s gone or why, Rocco’s daily adventures will be missed.
