Well, some people are sick in the head, that's for sure.

 

What made me sit up and take notice about this business with merlin, was the post from "merlins_wife". "She" seemed awfully excited for a "woman" who had just lost her husband. But that wasn't the only thing that caught my attention. It was "her" referring to him as merlin, and not by his "real name". That just struck me as odd.

Yeah ya know..... now that I think about it..... your right.... she did refer to him as "merlin". I mean seriously.... when something tragic happens..... why would she refer to him by his online alias? That doesnt make sense....

 

Now that we all look at all the clues..... its become very obvious we got scammed. Some were overcome with grief and sorrow (regarding the situation) that it really never came to mind....

What a soap opera! This deception won't change how I feel about the Pit and the members I have come to think of as my friends, but I think I will certainly be paying more attention! :P:)

The only thing I ever noticed was the title of the 12:36 post, as aforementioned. I thought...ok, that's odd? But I thought maybe a mod had changed the title and pinned it...rare that someone would lie about something like that...I was like "Oh man, poor guy," and that was basically it...read the posts and felt kinda sad; glad it didn't take over my day though.

Well, I've had time to get to grips with all this stuff since I first read it yesterday morning.

 

I suppose Merlin's had his fun messing about with people's emotions and then trying to get one over on the admins here. I bet he feels real big now.

 

We could waste our time chasing our tails trying to get back at him some way but to be honest we probably all have far better things to do. There are lots of important people that deserve my time and attention - Merlin is not one of them so I don't think I'll be expending anymore of my time on him.

 

The sad thing is that he misses out on being part of an excellent forum. The good thing is that it was an excellent forum before all this happened, it still is today and it still will be tomorrow. There are lots of good people that need help with their computers and lots of good debates to be had in GD. Regardless of what Merlin did / is doing now / is going to do, I'm going to get on with enjoying being a part of The Pit.

He ain't worth the effort to get even with.

 

Its time we move on to more enjoyable and enlightening subjects.

When something tragic happens why would you even go online right when it happens and post the news on some forum?

He was supposedly in the hospital for a bit before he died.....

 

Why would he be online at ALL ?? Wouldn't he be at the hospital with "him" or whatever. And when he dies... why online at all? I woulda figured that it woulda take some time to heal from something so tragic.

 

Kinda sux when all the clues become obviious AFTER we were scammed lol :blank:

Well, I dont think I was scammed..

I never replied to to original post because I didnt believe it was true but it would have been rude to post something like that. Like the part about Merlin being a bomber pilot in Iraq, yeah..hmmm...and you would think that an airplane pilot would learn to wear a seatbelt :P

Well then I was suckered..... I thought he died. I replied once.... things got fishy when there were more threads about him. I never posted in the wife thread.

 

It dawned on me a little too late lol
