How does one spot such a dumb ass in CPS and is there some sort of BS cyberrepellant I can use to identify and repel those pesky insects?
I also don't like pipe sellers/ re-sellers that lead double cyber lives-I'm talking about the wolves dressed in pipe smoking, sheep's clothing that use CPS as a market for their own ends.

Or how do the admins/mods police the site for such idiots/ scallywags ?

I'm not talking about the flagrant,obvious ones,I mean the more subtle ones that sneak in spinning some kind of believable introductory yarn in order to gain admission,and then are granted it.

How do I report a possible Poser/BS Artist/Seller-Re seller leading the double life ?
Sir, if you posted this gem within 20 posts of joining CPS, then I'm humbled by your craft, please teach me. This stuff is gold. You must have received training somewhere... the old Kerdy?

I am a poser. In real life I am 6'2" tall and have lots of hair and am at the ideal weight. I do not really own a psychopathic dog. I don't really smoke pipes, just ribs, and I have lots and lots of money!

I taught Paul McCartney how to play the base and know where Elvis is hiding. I eat only locally sourced food and so I never have gas.

You guys are all so gullible.

Now, I'm glad that's finally out and off my chest.

Also, Rusty is my SockPuppeh.
Glad you finally came out of the closet. Now would you please go back! We need more Petey stories!

Ok, you guys, this is Peter's wife posting now.

After many, many years of watching me be on the internet having fun posting on forums, my dear 19th century husband has decided to go beyond the basics. (He's just learned to copy and paste most proficiently in the last year or so...we've had computers in the house since 1996). He's following my example by finding some fellowship via a forum suited to his tastes. You gentlemen, for better or worse, are his introduction to this strange new world of potential ax murderers. (Since everyone on the internet is an ax murderer, don't you know? People on the internet are not real people....yes, he has said that to the kids & myself.)

Unlike myself, he has decided to just jump in and post, post, post. I got to know people and the way each individual forum operated - you know? ...the unspoken rules? Peter means well, but you must remember, he is one of those strange rare birds who is unfamiliar with internet culture. Reading your replies made me laugh, because I can see how he comes across. But I assure you that if you treat him like the time traveling newb from the 1890s that he really is, then his posts will make more sense.

Be gentle. (bahahhahhahahhahahhahahhaha!!!)

btw: where's the rofl emoticon??
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life.

Fear God and keep His commandments,for this is the whole duty of man. Ecc.12:13

I get up, walk two steps, fall down and get up again only to repeat the same...if you meet me face down on life's pathway,please help me to get up.

Well said, Mrs. Corncob. Thank you for the explanation and for dragging your hubby into the present, even if it is kicking and screaming.
