Confession: I've been pondering this one myself, no offense f_s. I'm leaning more towards the *cool person* side right now (mostly because the rest of the forum thinks so, and because your posts are fairly articulate as well; you seem to have put a lot of effort into many of them.) However, I have noticed that some of the things that you have said are a bit...odd, and perhaps inconsistent, considering your intelligence.
That being said, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I've come to the conclusion that, even if you really are
a joke character of sorts, that it wouldn't make any damned difference at all, since your posts are so entertaining anyway
. Furthermore, internet personalities aren't really supposed to be an accurate representations of self in the first place (although these fora seem to have bent that rule all out of shape), and if you've managed to hoodwink such an intelligent forum with an amazingly convincing persona, then I must tip my hat off to you for being a great illusionist.
On a side note: One of my friends actually entered a two year long
online relationship with a completely fabricated internet personality and person. In the end, it was discovered that it was actually a girl
that had created the fake (male) persona, and who had been toying with my friend's feelings for sheer amusement. Needless to say, it was twisted beyond belief, and she ended up being hurt for a very long time after that. (This was merely an interesting anecdote, I'm not insinuating anything about you at all here f_s)
