It's fairly simple dude. He says he's vanished because there hasn't been any confirmed sightings in 8 years.
So Batman was out there in the shadows... just hiding not doing anything? What's the point of that?
If he was taking down criminals, then there were sightings, and he hadn't vanished. Why? Because Bats doesn't kill, so those criminals would still be around to tell (guess who?) the police about what happened.
Trav isn't trolling. He's being logical. You guys want an active Batman AND to have Batman "vanish" "from the eyes." Impossible.
