I could never figure out if Popeye was a lefty pretending to be on the right, or just really that radical.
I used to come to LNF just to see what Popeye was going off about on that day, and it always made me laugh.
He would go on and on, even if no one was debating him

My favorite exchange with him was when I said that Rabbit was a Libertarian and not a Democrat
He went off on me calling me everything in the book

Good times

Feel free to tell your favorite Popeye story

I remember the time he thought I was a hacker.

That was great.

He was so incensed at me...

Here is what happened.

He posted something that I knew was copied from a website. But there was no link or quotation. It was passed off as his own thoughts on the matter.

So I copied the words myself and googled them and found the website in short order. Then I made my own post and linked everyone to the website he had initially used.

So that made me a hacker, in his eyes. He assumed I had his computer on some sort of remote viewer, or perhaps could access his browsing history.

And I never could convince him otherwise.

Another thing He would do is, find some article He liked, and even if it had nothing to do with the thread topic, He would paste it anyway

He many times would start a thread, that nobody would respond to, and keep adding stuff. Almost like He was arguing with someone that wasnt there

It was funny Cheesy

A character but not a thoughtful one.

I hope he's ok though.

I think it would be rather obvious if he did.

Only because I kept pointing out his absurdity, stupidity,  lack of education, bigotry, nastiness and banality.

Apart from that we got on just fine.

A couple of civil and even good humoured PMs.
