Re: [at-l] I'm confused...
>BTW RnR and Wingfoot are not the same person as someone suggested.
This is a pretty definite statement offered without any explanation.
Have you met RnR personally? Have you heard of him prior to his
fairly recent appearance on this list? If he has posted to ATML, has
he posted anywhere else? Have you seen him or heard of him hiking a
trail? I'm really curious about the existence of this person. Anyone
I recently did a dejanews search to see if this person posts to
Usenet and found no hits. Wingfoot _does_ post to alt.rec.hiking,
rec.outdoors.camping, rec.backcountry and several others. Rather he
used to post to those areas but tapered off in the late '90's. This
doesn't mean much except that if I found posts from RnR I would more
likely believe he's a different individual, especially if he was
posting to the same newsgroups. Of course I know that the lack of
posts proves nothing.
What got my interest up is an eerie recognition of language that I
remember from long conversations with Dan Bruce in '97, '98
timeframe. Of course this is also possibly a coincidence.
btw, I'm not against anonymity on the 'net. I think this feature is
very useful for those who wish to experiment with "different" online
personalities. We, as readers, need to recognize this from time to
time. We might not be all that we seem to be.
