I take xmiles at face value, and am happy to do so. In a way aren't we all fakes when we post on forums like these.
Does anyone really believe I loved Bruce Forsyth?
Well me for one.
But thanks for exemplifying the point I’ve been trying to make to the mystic one for weeks.
Although I suspect he’ll dig out a back page article from the Tasmanian Herald proving you are in fact the love child of Brucie and Anna Pavlova.
No we are not all fakes, many people post as they really are.
I'm not saying they give all their personal details about themselves out but they are pretty honest in what they post.
The big difference between fake accounts and Wanderlust is that they 'are' fake, they can and do take opposing views of what they believe in the real world and argue black is white if they have a mind to.
With Wanderlust he's genuine but got caught in telling a lie - a big fat juicy one!
That's not being fake, that's being untruthful - being down right and deliberately deceitful - who cares if he just simply said 'I got that one wrong' or similar right from the start?
He's been banging on daily for the last four years against something he in fact voted for in real life!
He's trying to make out that's normal on the internet - it isn't.
If he had just said exactly what he did on ww - namely he felt he was misled about voting for Brexit, then that would have been that but he's one of those who can't admit to being wrong - even on the internet.
He's dug a hole for himself, not because he was trying to pull the wool over peoples eyes like fake accounts do, but because of how he is and how he wants to be perceived to be by a bunch of strangers on an obscure internet forum.
He's not playing games like the fake accounts do, he's trying to hide what he really did.
Who even gives a fuck other than himself???

Point is, it doesn’t matter if someone has multiple internet personas or indeed what they write is gospel- as long as it is entertaining, informative or thought-provoking.
Telling a far fetched fairy story is one thing deliberately telling outright lies is completely a different thing and pointing this out is most definitely "entertaining, informative" and even "thought-provoking"!
Certainly keeping me "entertained"!
