    Marakh, this particular individual was/is a blight on the Forum, and assumed a variety of identities, even using different Internet addresses, in an attempt to elude the vigilance of the Founders.

    This individual even bragged about their ability to do so.

    So we should give special thanks to Clutch, Cronie, Spez and JamVan for their ongoing efforts to make GMHockey a quality forum.

    And to our Members, because even if we disagree over hockey matters--and heck, that's half the fun--we look out for each other, so thanks to everyone.
    :n:

    Now when does this next season start, already??

    If I actually knew him personally, first I would question my entire life, then probably kill myself.

    1000 posts and 2000 PMs is where you're at. And never underestimate this sim for getting posts by the...hundreds.

    How do you find out your number of PM's?

    Dave, Notch4077 joined before FireOnIce. Both were active at the same time. Yes, it is possible with two PCs, but this was before Notch's first account was deleted and the subsequent new accounts with variations on the original name. Although both Notch and FOI got into "discussions" their approaches were different. Notch tended to be the antagonizer, the one who would hurl the initial volley, while FOI tended to over-react at someone's criticism, and was especially fond of playing the "rookie card". I definitely saw differences in the "personalities" of the two posters.

    Or are you suggesting that a person with two PCs and suffering from schizophrenia was involved?

    Now try this one on for size. Do we really know that N4L is the old Neely4Life? What if it's really Notch4077? It wouldn't be difficult to imitate N4L's particular style for a few posts. A few here had already done that in the past when poking fun.

    Truth is, we don't know and we all have our reasons for assuming one way (that Notch/FOI were one and the same) or the other (that they were two different individuals).

    Of course there is a third possibility: schizophrenia and three PCs.

    I talked with both a fair amount, and they never seemed like the same person Shrug

    Some of us have a lot of history with N4L. If he is not him, we'll tell very quickly Smile

    Just fooling around. Sounds ike I exasperated DTR, though.

    Hey, Dave, why so glum? At least with N4L being 82 you're no-longer the "old guy".

    Don't know that proverb, but I wonder if you found theRussian Proverbs Wiki topic? The accents (which don't belong) are selling you out Smile
