Who is Michael Savu?

So, I was browsing the QDB: Top 50 Quotes, and I came across this classic (warning, offensive language!). I wondered then, “Who is Michael Savu? Will his mom ever find the post?”

It’s Christmas 2011. For some reason I ended up on and ended up googling Michael Savu, only to find an epic decade’s worth of fellow nerds.

I think we’ll never know now!

(I also want to know what happened when Pete and Ken met at the beach: )

The days of irc. Heh I first saw this around 2004. I can only imagine that this guy is probably out of college entering the world for the first time. Unlike the rest of us who still seem to still be squatting behind a computer screen wondering “what ever happened to Michael Savu”. I think that says a lot about the real irc community. Maybe it is more a reality check than anything. Even I came here wondering. Perhaps its time for people (myself included) to stop wondering and move on. The internet is full of falsehoods. It is entirely possible this comment was formulated to create curiosity. Maybe its a sick psychological joke created by the real Michael Savu. The world will never know. I suggest people move on and stop wondering. Irc is like everything else on the internet its a waste of time. Think I’ll end with one of the old Cult of the Dead Cow quotes:

“Save yourself! Go outside! DO SOMETHING!”

I think I understand that more now than I ever did before and boy were they right.

Oh man, I remember when I first saw that on Cool people on the internet from back then, when everything was pretty much anonymous.

Visited for years just now i decided to google him and ended up here lol.. vanished without a trace

Still looking for Micheal Savu in 2013.. :p
From to Google to here…

Someone should find him :p Hope he knows that the internet still exists :p

Still wondering whatever happened to Michael Savu. If he was a teenager in May of 2003, then he’s in his 20’s now in 2013. I wish he’d do a slashdot interview or an AMA on reddit. There’s a Michael Savu profile on linkedin, but I’m rather certain it’s not the right one.

nope… in Boerne, texas. Michelle, his relative lives there too. This happened almost 30 yrs ago 😮

Where is someone who can answer the important questions in life? Hopefully 2018 will be the year we learn the truth about Savu.
