Coincidence that he disappeared with Kristin? ( nm )Continental

I suspect that Kristin's busyIronbutt

Kristin didn't disappear, she changed her name on this group to "free2pedal" when she lost her job. She was working in the IT field, and I would think that her full time job is finding a full time job. It's not easy in today's world, being a single woman, unemployed, looking for work. I would hope that there is some way that we could encourge her in her trials.
I see her posts from time to timeFrith

Grow up you guyssuperdog

Grow up you guys. This is not a troll... I really want to know what hapened to this guy (cyclingforhealth). If you guys know for sure he was a fake let me know.

There is a guy where I work that is seriously overweight and he was looking at buying some sort of bike to ride in addition to lifting weights. His father passed away in November from diabetes complications and he does not want to die young like his father. This is not funny.

I just wanted to know what happened to the guy.
I'm sorry about you're co-worker but...biknben

"Cycling for Health" was a troll. He wasn't even a good one. I only read half the posts he wrote and none were believable. They got increasingly outrageous.
Was the guy a phoney?superdog

Are you saying the guy was phoney and was there no such person? Or are you saying the guy was real but he was just weird?

If so, what RBR member made it all up?
Gregg or Doug Sloansuperdog
Jan 6, 2004 9:01 AM
In order to solve this "mystery" once and for all... why don't we see if Doug or Gregg can find out which IP addresses were used to post the cyclingfohealth posts and see if match up with another RBR member's posting address.
can, but won'tDougSloan

We *can* do that, but so far I've not ever revealed people's IP's or the fact of multiple handles. If someone were being a real pest by that process and that's what it took to out them and get it to stop, I probably would. But, I don't think I should for mere curiosity.

Jan 6, 2004 10:00 AM
I didn't want you to actually reveal any personal or technical info about a poster to us RBR board members. Just wanted to know if the guy was a phoney or not.

It's not that big of a deal, I won't loose any sleep over it.
This is just a guess hereFree2Pedal

I've suspected for some time that the same ugly mug is behind each of these handles:

RadicalRonPruit (and most related aliases)
CyclingforHealth & Wealth
BowWow (really most of the handles that have to do with dogs)
That troll from SanFran who posted on the golf site (forgot his name...nor do I really care to remember it.)

And that all of these belong to a long time and regular poster who has a habit of changing names and who I've bantered with several times. Care to hazzard a guess? (Doug, you can't play.) I also predict that each of the characters I named above will post a response to this message within 2 days. Is this because:

A)I have psychic powers
B)I have a brain cell

?? :-)

you Techies are so perceptive.


Well, you've got one wrongsuperdog
Jan 7, 2004 8:49 PM
I, superdog, have nothing to do with the posters you've listed.

My handle superdog comes from my neighbor's dog Scout pictured below. The handle Scout was already taken so I chose Superdog for obvious reasons.
Maybe he's out riding while we are here typing ( nm )pnitefly
