If heard that the name may even a pseudonym and that very less is known about the initiator of bitcoin. Also it seems that he has stopped working on the main client.

When was his last verifiable life sign? Did he ever mentioned or announced his retirement?

I'd say this is substantially different from the "who is" question. – nealmcb Aug 31 '11 at 20:13
It's off topic. This site is about Bitcoin. It doens't need to become fodder for Who-is-Satoshi-Nakamoto trivia. Any biographical information you feel the need to expound on can easily be contained in the other thread. No need to perpetuate this this content of dubious value through the site. – Robert Cartaino Aug 31 '11 at 21:25
@Robert You claimed (probably rightly so IMO) that it was off-topic, yet you closed it as "exact duplicate." It's a pet peeve of mine that far, far too many questions on SE are closed as exact duplicate when they are NOT exact duplicates. – Michael McGowan Aug 31 '11 at 21:59
Michael McGowan: It is off topic, but I was trying to compromise by providing a reference to the other Satoshi thread to provide an outlet for that content (closing as dupe provides a link to that content). But since the other thread has been closed, too, might as well make a clean break of it and close this one as off topic, too. – Robert Cartaino Sep 1 '11 at 13:55
@Robert- I say this is on topic. – ripper234 Sep 3 '11 at 8:28

This was his last post on the Bitcoin Forums, December 12th, 2010. The day after he wrote this to the mailing list. As far as I know he did not (publicly) announce his retirement.
