Well different strokes for different folks. I didn't care for his setup (if you are referring to his website) as it did honestly look like a geocities blog. As for the girls, good on him, but I'd take women that don't dunlap. That's my take on things.
If he comes back with a more professional website and continues to offer decent products, then I don't see why he couldn't succeed. He has already established a reputation amongst many of you of having good products (and that of ignoring emails) so people know the name and that can easily work in his favor.
