Merlins Post

Recommended Posts

I sent the list of names, IP addresses, email addresses, and a full account of what he did to the Administrators of every PC Help forum I know of. And let me just say, I know of quite a few of them.

How about posting all that here for us to see as well...?

Seems to me that at this point in time none of the information

gleaned should be in camera.

The fraud was perpetrated on all of us............ :nospys:

 

At least tell all the canadians on site...... :P

In almost 7 years of being an Admin, I have file dozens of complaints about people with IPS's, and very rarely do they ever do anything. They are more interested in their money than your problems. And even if you do mange to get them to cut someone off, they can just call another ISP, or have someone else call for them. So I don't even bother with that anymore.

ISP's don't give a rats behind. They get the check in the mail and that's all they care. Companies have lost their sincerity these days.

People who do not have a life have a bad habit of making one up. And the more they lie, the more they have to lie to maintain the lie. Then one day they tell a lie so big that there is no getting out of it. It's so typical.

did you read that story? the only similarites are the supposed age, death and possibly the "alter-egos". this guy faked his own death, then signed up under different names under what he must of thought were "alter-egos" but in actuallity were very similar, if not exactly the same personality, identified by his serious overuse of the exclamation point.

 

 

 

...wow, i sound like a regular Columbo! :P

Well, some people are sick in the head, that's for sure.

 

What made me sit up and take notice about this business with merlin, was the post from "merlins_wife". "She" seemed awfully excited for a "woman" who had just lost her husband. But that wasn't the only thing that caught my attention. It was "her" referring to him as merlin, and not by his "real name". That just struck me as odd.

Yeah ya know..... now that I think about it..... your right.... she did refer to him as "merlin". I mean seriously.... when something tragic happens..... why would she refer to him by his online alias? That doesnt make sense....

 

Now that we all look at all the clues..... its become very obvious we got scammed. Some were overcome with grief and sorrow (regarding the situation) that it really never came to mind....

What a soap opera! This deception won't change how I feel about the Pit and the members I have come to think of as my friends, but I think I will certainly be paying more attention! :P:)

The only thing I ever noticed was the title of the 12:36 post, as aforementioned. I thought...ok, that's odd? But I thought maybe a mod had changed the title and pinned it...rare that someone would lie about something like that...I was like "Oh man, poor guy," and that was basically it...read the posts and felt kinda sad; glad it didn't take over my day though.

Well, I've had time to get to grips with all this stuff since I first read it yesterday morning.

 

I suppose Merlin's had his fun messing about with people's emotions and then trying to get one over on the admins here. I bet he feels real big now.

 

We could waste our time chasing our tails trying to get back at him some way but to be honest we probably all have far better things to do. There are lots of important people that deserve my time and attention - Merlin is not one of them so I don't think I'll be expending anymore of my time on him.

 

The sad thing is that he misses out on being part of an excellent forum. The good thing is that it was an excellent forum before all this happened, it still is today and it still will be tomorrow. There are lots of good people that need help with their computers and lots of good debates to be had in GD. Regardless of what Merlin did / is doing now / is going to do, I'm going to get on with enjoying being a part of The Pit.

He ain't worth the effort to get even with.

 

Its time we move on to more enjoyable and enlightening subjects.

When something tragic happens why would you even go online right when it happens and post the news on some forum?

He was supposedly in the hospital for a bit before he died.....

 

Why would he be online at ALL ?? Wouldn't he be at the hospital with "him" or whatever. And when he dies... why online at all? I woulda figured that it woulda take some time to heal from something so tragic.

 

Kinda sux when all the clues become obviious AFTER we were scammed lol :blank:

Well, I dont think I was scammed..

I never replied to to original post because I didnt believe it was true but it would have been rude to post something like that. Like the part about Merlin being a bomber pilot in Iraq, yeah..hmmm...and you would think that an airplane pilot would learn to wear a seatbelt :P

Well then I was suckered..... I thought he died. I replied once.... things got fishy when there were more threads about him. I never posted in the wife thread.

 

It dawned on me a little too late lol
