Nobody remembers exactly how he spelled his original attempt at an internet brand. It was something like "VannerShortGuy". VannerShortGuy got bullied and banned, so he became ManlytearsUK. ManlytearsUK got bullied and banned so he became Britbong. Britbong got bullied and banned so he became BritbongReturns.
As BritbongReturns, he rode the wave of Charlie Winsmore's success to his biggest following yet, (which still fell far short of a silver youtube play button). He had a network and influential friends, but retained all the behavioral problems that plagued him before, so Britbongreturns went the way of the previous brands.
Since his influential friends couldn't help him get un-banned, he made them his enemies out of frustration and rage.

He'll tell you the plan now is to follow the rules so that MRBTFO doesn't get banned all the time like all the others. It might even work, if he could manage it, but his own psychology won't allow it. Besides, for someone who developed a following based on breaking all the rules, being a good boy will only lead to his audience moving on to someone else.
TrustedFlagger quit taking requests for help over twitter as it became overwhelming, but that doesn't mean MRBTFO is safe. He was getting banned long before the Youtube Heros program existed.
Rolling fast upon middle age, with no means to support himself in sight, and his social anxiety worse than ever before, the future might not be kind to MRBTFO. I expect there might be a few more re-brands before he gives up for good though.
I'm not immune to the Sisyphus-like cruelty of Britbong's fate. His only means of socialization or earning a few pennies is by streaming, which he's cursed to spend his life building up, only to have it cruelly taken away from him time and time again.
As I understand it, the behaviors which brought this fate to Britbong were not any choice he made, but some sort of accident of birth. Doctors don't know what caused his condition, nor how to treat it, which makes his pain even more cruel.
One thing is for certain though, Britbong was BTFO before, and will be BTFO again, probably until he dies, making MRBTFO probably his best choice for a screen name yet. Deserved or not, getting BTFO is his fate.
