Here we are in a new thread! Woohoo!

Anyway, The White Hand has been given a timeout for language. He edits every other post - why he didn't bother to edit that one escapes me.

All the abusive talk in the Pony didn't help his case much either. The Argument Clinic makes a funny sketch, but no one wants to go there when they want to talk politics.

He'll be reinstated at my whim. Gnite!

Ah, I see our benevolent Overlord has taken action. Shame it was necessary.

Such is life, as one infamous bush ranger famously said.

Well, checked my junk mail bin and noticed that my warning email to The White Hand has been bounced due to unknown user on the email address.

I'm sure he is aware of the reason for his time-out, but without a way to communicate, I'm not sure if he'll be back. He never answered (or read) his PMs anyway, but a valid email address is a requirement.

Hmm...

Don't worry... he'll just register a new name to another disposable email when he wants to come and play again. []

Dependant on his settings for PM's, he may be able to read them via email notification without actually accessing his PM's on site. I know that I can do that, but am not sure if changes to the board have since altered this. If this is the case, the email may have been deleted in a fit of temper over the disciplinary action. It's all speculation, really. []

In any case, I think we carry on just fine and dandy no matter what happens. You never know, other's may get a word in edgewise on some threads. One thing is for sure, the entertainment that is MT will continue unabated for this citizen. []

I've asked it before, and I'll ask it again:

Is The White Hand mental?? []

(Maybe I've asked that of his sockpuppets/predecessors/previous incarnations, I can't recall...)

Depends, Silm.

Online behaviour is frequently quite different to "in real life" behaviour. What we see on the boards may not reflect more broadly on the entirety of an individual. I'll hang up my psychological hat now before I really bore us all to tears. []

The funny thing is that I do know one or two people in RL that could be like Wiki or his reincarnations. One in particular springs to mind someone known to one and all in a pub I go to as the Barrister. I'm not quite sure what the difference is, but it is there. Perhaps it is just that Wiki rarely seems to relax. We can't tell if he is just having a big game or he means it! In the Barrister's case if he goes on one of his rants, people just laugh and ignore him and he tend to smile too.

This could be grossly misinformed and purely rampant speculation, but that only heightens the fun factor.

I do believe our pale appendage has returned. []

I'm not sure who you are referring to actually, Elora, but it is possible that Wiki has just been out-Wikied! []

Yes, and apparently by a non-Wiki. Now that's a novelty. MT must be getting famous if it already attracts two of the kind at once.

If nothing else, it helps to place others in a more proper perspective.

"If you think I'm bat sh!t..."

And then there is always the entertainment value.

Dependant on perspective, owning up to that could constitute:

That's why he presents a problem pi. If he were nothing but a troll he'd be banned straight away... no problem. The problem, if it can be termed as such, is that he offers good things, so what choice is there but to give him some rope. Sadly in the end he generally ends up lynching himself. That latest fella don't seem like our boy to me tho', he went on the offensive too quickly. With "He Who Must Not Be Named Despite His Multitude Of Names" there is usually a build up.

Well said, Mad. [] I don't think anyone denies that WiKi has a lot to offer in the lit fora, up until the point where he starts having a go even at those who are agreeing with him. []

If I may play armchair psychologist for a moment (because who doesn't love doing that! [] ), there's no way that these two screennames are the same person.

It's the difference between psychopathy and psychosis. Psychopathy is narcissism, impulse control issues, inability to handle dissent, all that jazz. WiKi, in other words. This guy is more of the "aliens are intercepting my brainwaves" type, which implies psychotic break. If true, we should feel sorry for him because he is ill rather than just constitutionally a vicious jerk-off.

Or, I'm still of the opinion that it could be a troll. Wetty, we've talked about this... [] [] []

ETA: It worries me slightly that our newest unhinged denizen spends his free time making weaponry. []

Well said Athene, from one Psych to another. It is for that reason that I have believed Wiki was not the same individual as White Hand. They display inherently different online pathology... Unless they are the same individual who has Dissociative Disorder..... Hmmm mm, now there's an interesting theory... []
