Just a thought, but maybe this is his way of telling you he's ready for toilet training and no longer wants to wear nappies? My 2yr old daughter was doing the same thing, so we decided to start her on the potty and she's taken to it like a pro smile
Let us know how you go,

As for night (he still wears nappies), he is old enough to understand instructions now, so before I leave his room each night we go through a sort of check list. I say Robert remember you must stay in, and he says "Bed" and leave your and he says "nappy on", not sure if this will work for everone but it sure works for me, he hasn't taken his nappy off since we started this. I no longer use pins!

I have just had the exactly the same thing with my daughter Kate who is 22 months. I had big poos everywhere but the nappy.
She is also stuborn and very busy and wouldn't go on the potty or even sit on it long enough! In the end I resorted to nickers so it felt uncomfortable. After three days, today we did one poo, three wees (in the potty) and two accidents so we are finally getting there!
otherwise i tend to agree with the others maybe he wants outta them.

day time became a full on crash course of toilet training (for him and me!!) it worked pretty quickly and i believe this was because i talked with my husband and we laid down some rules (for ourselves) first. NO negativity no matter what! we never used any words like "bad, naughty, wrong, mistake". when he did have an accident we just put on a silly face and said "oh dear! we have an oopsy " or somehting ridiculous like that then enlisted our son's help cleaning up. (they soon get sick of housework too). and when he did go it was OVER THE TOP magnified exagerated praise like he'd won a gold medal at the olympics.
It takes some energy but look at it this way - a lot of energy now for a short period or a little energy for a long time.
anyway - just another suggestion - you never know it might work for you as well.
