Good call Jim, thats another thread started and promoted by a Hoco-clone. There are several people who magically appeared, made one of their first posts some sort of reasonable sounding attack on the SWR analysis, which ***** jumped on like the last chopper out of 'Nam, participated in heavily, quoted like mad all over the other ER boards, and then the OP disappeared after a while, never posting here or anywhere else again.
Theres at least one more monster thread of the same pedigree. Maybe two.
When I pointed out the unlikelihood of someone appearing with an SWR agenda that then vanishes after the 'monster thread' runs its course, and the attention ***** pays to these threads, and the probability that it was ***** in disguise, they stopped happening for a couple of months. When I brought up that fact, suddenly our buddy Tony appears with his annuities morphing into an anti SWR thread...a day later. Of course, we can only find duplicate IP addresses from Dory's end, and by examining the clock values in the IP headers I can determine if two packets with different IP addresses come from the same physical machine...but if old Hoco-loco has access to two machines or a more anonymous collection like a library or internet cafe...well then we cant tell.
Or can we?
If you waste the time to look at the list of logged on users, you can see ***** and JWR1945 appear, do some reading or posting, then one or both disappears and "tony2002" shows up just a few moments later. When he's done and disappears, ***** or JWR1945 frequently re-appear within a few moments.
Fortunately we were created with simple basic intellect that tells any reasonable person that a new user wont become passionately inflamed about SWR's that has never participated before in an ER discussion, and then vanishes and never re-appear. The same intellect looks at the timing of the incidents as described above and sees that more than coincidence is involved.
*****, you sound disappointed and dejected. May I suggest that you stop hurting yourself and spend your time either in your own little paid-for corner of cyberspace over at NFB or revel in the beatings you're getting over at the retire early home page?
Anyone who doubts for a moment that ***** is a troll, take 5 minutes to look at the retire early homepage's "hocomania" board, where *****'s past and current discharges are well chronicled by people who have dealt with him for years. Its all there in great detail spread across years. The self contradictions, the avoidance, the creating of dissension between members, the bogus claims, his emails to people like Bernstein and Burns asking them to come to the board and deny Intercst's SWR claims because he's receiving death threats from Intercst. Its an amazing array of *****-hooery Instead of feeling insulted or not participating, he capers about in the threads, seemingly filled with joy.
Its as it should be...a troll enjoying the full attention of a board community.
What reasonably non-troll would do that?
I think the worst part about this troll isnt its antics, its when it creates these new users and makes us question the validity of new people.
And sure *****, go ahead and whine away that theres no 'proof' of your duplicity.
We're not stupid. We know.
