Beware The Fake Archives Guy
Here's the story on Archives Guy here on Thrasher's Wheat.
There are actually 2 of them. One is bogus. H/She signs in lower case with an unregistered Google ID "-archives guy".
The real, deal Archives Guy posts with a registered Google ID that links to his profile.
We make every attempt to delete the fake AG posts as soon as they are spotted. If you see any, you can always flag for deletion (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Believe us when we say this problem is a source of unrelenting frustration that someone is getting their kicks out of being an impostor. In addition, they often make totally inappropriate/distasteful comments.
Furthermore, fake AG puts at risk this whole relationship of sharing important Archives info with fans who are looking at coughing up some serious $$$'s. It has not gone unnoticed that a great deal of adjustments are due to fans response on this blog, elsewhere on Rust and around the 'nets.
Beware the fake AG. Do not engage or feed the troll.
Also, it is encouraged that a profile ID account be established for posting comments. Here's how to establish a Google Accounts. This will give you a valid signature for posts. This will better enable us to sort the wheat from the chaff.
If you're still curious about all this you can read the comments policy for Thrasher's Wheat.
UPDATE: We have reason to believe that the Fake Archives Guy may be operating out of the Steve Hoffman Forum as a home base. An alert has been sent to Steve Hoffman and we understand that a TOS violation is in process to suspend the account.
