Imposter (Re: [FUD] Dodel's VOICE! VOTED Worst OS/2 Website Ever!)
NOTE: it's against my policy to follow up to a troll-initiated thread,
but I thought I should clear up some apparent misunderstanding about the
original poster. He is an imposter. See below...

It probably is TM. I think it's safe to conclude that the original
poster, of this and the other messages in the same vein from today, was
-not- Jeramie Samphere. Consider:
* The originating IP address was totally different from Jeramie's usual
* The user-agent was running on an Intel Mac (Jeramie typically posts from
an OS/2 system).
* There's absolutely no mention of shutting down OS2eCS.org on said
* The subject matter and tone of voice should be a pretty obvious
differentiator. Unfortunate as the recent VOICE-OS2eCS dispute may be,
Jeramie has never posted profanity-laced troll messages. He's also
quite firmly dedicated to advancing OS/2-eComStation, and would hardly
start sending out rants telling everyone to switch to Macs or Linux.
* The poster signed himself as "Jeramie Shmear".
Conclusion: This is a troll. Don't feed it.
This will be my only posting in this thread.
