This is a question Social Media Meltdowns

Ever said something you've regretted on the internet? Seen somebody make an arse of themselves? Know somebody who posts first and asks questions later? Dob them in to us, the internet police. (We last did this five years ago before Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook really took off, so now's the time for an update)

Thanks to Benny Blanco from the Bronx for the suggestion

I remember that...
back in 2005. And he appeared on many many different forums. There was a huge trail. I remember spending a few bored afternoons following all kinds of trails after this guy.

Ultimately it was clear he was just yet another Internet fantasist combined with some level of mental illness and paranoia.

Aha - one of the links I stashed at the time is still live:

"John Gobin Shaw" - which now means the conspiracy trail also leads here too...

NOW I know why I recognise that...
...I'm on that thread. Woo! Part of internet folk law. "psychotouristupdate" I've just found my old account buried in my mailbox...

That guy was seriously entertaining :D

Edit: Eeek!! He is still out there. A web search on his email address shows up a 2013 post on a TEFL forum...
