What becomes of old 'friends'..

For those interested in what happens to Apollo denial personalities...

Fattydash/DrTea/Patrick1000/dastardly/etc, etc has now finished his run at Abovetopsecret.com, where he posted as 'decisively'.  After 1200-ish posts and 17 different threads, all pretty much repeating the junk he brought up here and elsewhere, he has finally been banned.  I'm not sure what caused the banning in the end.. (- probably NASA - we all know how they control everything...)  I wonder where he will turn up next, although I'd have to say once you have been rejected at the ATS 'Skunkworks', there's not much between you and the gutter of complete Internet obscurity and irrelevance...

On the topic of persons no longer banging their drum, does anyone know for sure what became of IDW?

Feel free to add other names you have encountered and now think "Wonder what happened to..."

(Er, that's if this is OK with you LO - not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this, or even if it IS appropriate at all - so feel free to relocate or delete..!  If it is OK, can I suggest an expansion - would it be worthwhile perhaps to name names, ie list off all the known pseudonyms of our favorite sockpuppets, so those encountering them in the future might have a reference?)

YouTube.  Or maybe Spurstalk.

Sounds like YouTube to me.  Let them wallow around there with the "kute kitteh" videos.

Maybe, although it might feed the paranoia.  "The pro-NASA shills maintain a list of everyone who's ever spoken out against Apollo, and they track them across the internet."

I encountered Rodin on this very board and have fond memories of his bizarre rantings.  He's still up to his tricks at DavidIcke.com and is past 15,000 posts - he sees Jewish/Zion conspiracies in everything, and is so extreme in his beliefs I'd say he's a master troll - nobody could believe the stuff he comes out with e.g. the Zapruder footage clearly shows Jackie shooting JFK, McDonalds food contains human flesh, the absence of conspiracy indicates conspiracy....

One thing I've learned about cranks is that I should never underestimate their ability to believe truly weird stuff. I often have the very same thought; "this guy must know he's wrong, nobody could believe this crap, he's gotta be a deliberate troll" but then they say and do things that indicate they really are genuinely and honestly deluded. For example, one of the few things that will consistently get them angry is to call them a liar - even though they do it constantly to us.

It must be like that strange condition called anosognosia, where someone can have a paralyzing stroke and be utterly unaware that one of their arms is paralyzed. It's not denial; they really are incapable of understanding that they're impaired.

Laurel:
Anosognosia can accompany mental health issues as well. This might (emphasis on "might") explain some of what Ka9q is describing.
