Does anyone know anything about user Edwin Ashworth? A somewhat exigent and at times infuriating stickler for standards, I find myself missing his droll comments. He's been “missing” since July.
It's likely that anyone who knows would say nothing out of a respect for user privacy. Unless we hear from him personally, I think this is the answer to your question.
(From this perspective, when you ask if the two downvotes on the question show lack of concern, actually the opposite might be true.)
