1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Do you think this forum is a filter for liars? I do not think so. So who could be a liar here? Who is a redneck worker (or farmer), is short and bald, wears leather pants, elastic ties on Sunday and eat all days at Popeys? but Claims to have millions, to eat in best restaurants in the world, to be attractive and intelligent, to wear the best bespoke suits of the world... Who is like that [​IMG] But claimes to be like that [​IMG]

    I don't own leather pants, and I have never, ever, eaten at Popeyes.

    I don't think that it matters much. This is the internet - we are all frauds on one level or another, simply because we realize that nobody can see us. There is no body language here, no facial expression. How would we know if someone was joking or serious if they didn't indicate one way or another? Many people aren't very good at expressing themselves online, because most of their communication in real life is non verbal. In that sense - do any of us really "know" each other anyways?

    How can we prove that you are really who YOU say you are?

    Not that I'm doubting you Ernest. I have very little doubt of your authenticity. BUT how do I REALLY know? It's quite possible that everyone who has "met" you are actually people who are either "in" on the joke, or you yourself posting under another name. I don't know any of them either. It is impossible to prove, and therefore not worth wasting your time and energy worrying about.

    If someone claims to be a high roller in life... so what? If the information he is posting here is accurate, and he engages in worthwhile conversations and brings up valid points - who cares if he's really a poor college student somewhere. Half the fun of being online is that you can be anything you want.

    Speaking of which... I found this amusing, but J mentioned the other day that perhaps many of you folks assume that he's asian. I found that hilarious. I don't know why. He's actually Julius Erving... aka Dr. J. Black guy, played basketball, in the 70's had a huge afro. See picture. [​IMG]

    I agree but trying to prove that people are lying when they don't seem to be really aware of what they are talking = a pleasure

    Exemple = a guy who claims to make not realistic things like making millions while he spends half of his life on a forum talking about clothes and wears a $200 watch.

    Ernest, have you never read a newspaper or seen television? First of all, millionaires generally can't dress themselves. The fact that they own cheaply made (if not just downright inexpensive) stuff is HIGHLY feasible. I have run into Bill Gates on a few occasions, and let me tell you - he is NOT concerned with his dress. I'm talking dirty grey sweats here. I've seen him wear dockers slacks and a $20 wrinkled shirt. He is the worlds wealthiest man (by far) and he also has plenty of free time on his hands should he so desire it. I believe he maintains quite a few hobbies to busy himself, one of which is browsing numerous forums and blogs. This I have heard from the man himself.
