Carbface has also disappeared, and seems to have been replaced with fitfat. My hypothesis is that dl has become an older and fatter place in the last few years, and now casts a kinder eye on doughiness (provided it's in white men).

Caneface appears with far less frequency.

This article reminded me of your thread, OP. [quote]The Fading Sounds of Analog Technology [quote]I%E2%80%99ve always loved the musical %E2%80%9CCompany,%E2%80%9D a Broadway show by Stephen Sondheim that opened in 1970. It was about a 35-year-old Manhattan guy, still unmarried even though all of his best friends are married couples. The set, the tone and the score were all ultra-chic, ultra-modern, ultra-urban. So urban and modern, in fact, that the first thing you hear as the show begins is a busy signal %E2%80%94 in its day, the ultimate technological symbol of a fast-paced, full-up lifestyle. After a few repetitions of that insistent, one-note beep, the overture begins building off of its rhythm. The busy signal became a musical theme for the entire opening number. But when I went to see the revival of the show in 2006, the busy signal was gone. Mr. Sondheim later told me that nobody knows what it is anymore.
