While I also believe that it is very important that everyone behave in a civil and courteous manner, we should not extend that goal to the hyperbolic extreme that it overshadows our common sense (e.g. the sanctimonius newbie who just had to sign up and post to shake his head at our uncouth ruffianism). There are a lot of strange behavioral traits of this poster that make his legitimacy questionable: 1. He posts the same creepy, exaggerated picture in every thread, regardless of whether it has any relevance. 2. He starts threads with extremely simplistic questions that any legitimate user could have found the answer to by reading this forum for 4-5 minutes (e.g. the Darren's prices thread). 3. Also note the total randomness of his thread topics, which seem to come out of left field when compared to the last. On one hand he's a high school kid who wants to pay only $150 for a suit (the mysuitshop thread), and then he claims he's trying to turn his wardrobe into Saville Row. 4. He only starts threads and runs; he doesn't reply in other threads or respond to replies in his own ones, even to the ones that call into question his legitimacy. 5. The need to keep reminding us of his real name, age, and his alleged autism. Sorry, but I've seen my fair of autistic people posting on the larger message boards I frequent, and none of them writes like an inept idiot in their posts. I'm not claiming to know anything about autism, but my impression is that the behavioral traits associated with it are much more linked to face to face settings rather than detached forms of communication like the internet. I think something clearly is amiss here, which is why Mike C. and others have been suspicious of this guy almost right away after he started posting. His comments may be hostile, but he's a great poster and a forum veteran, and I have to say that I sympathize with him here. I don't mean to be rude now, but even if, by some chance, this guy is legit and not a gimmick account (which I don't think the South Carolina IP answers entirely), I still don't think that gives him carte blanche to act like a bumbling fool and make content-void posts that are akin to spam in their disruptiveness. Would it be all right if one of us started posting in caveman talk or ran our posts through a jive-talk filter? I'm not trying to backseat moderate here, but I think there are pretty understandable reasons why a good deal of members here have found this guy annoying and suspicious, and it would be appreciated if this guy were at the very least asked to take the time and learn the minimal basics of message board use before subjecting us to his posts.
