    I hate to bring up another board, but I was just cruising through the PD..........I keep seeing this Miguel dude come up. He doesn't really post anything, just....."Patience....2002"....and then maybe a question mark.

    He seems to always post around the same time as Fernando, who always posts with just a question mark.

    Has anyone ever thought that this is just the same person? (similar style of posts, Mexican theme)

    I keep thinking....and I am kind of embarrased to say this.........I keep thinking its the Ace of Bass, Mr. Michael Anthony.....

    I was just wondering if anyone else has ever gotten this vibe about these 2 characters at the PD.

    It's threads like this that prove we need information now more than ever.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    I don't post over there, and I rarely read anything over there if it isn't linked to from here, but here's my take on those two:

    Fernando is some guy with too much time on his hands and no creativity. Thousands of posts of basically nothing. Just another example of the barrel of monkies that is PD.

    Miguel is someone that saw Fernando, thought it was cool, and decided to mimic him. Monkey see, monkey do.

    I've always wondered about them 2 myself. In the back of my mind, something tells me that Fernando is someone in the VH camp. Not because of the answers he gives but the questions he replies to. His brief answers are usually to questions/comments about what and when the band may do in the future.

    On the other hand, I may be off my rocker.

    One thing this past two years has taught us is that VH fans are desperate for news, and vague suggestions are often over-analyzed and given far too much weight.

    Sorry, but neither of these characters seem legit. There's power to be found in mystery, and people abuse that sometimes. It'd be a very simple matter for the mods at the PD to confirm or deny if either is possibly someone connected to VH. You can make a reasonable assumption that it's not a band member if the IP that is posting the messages isn't in California. You can also make a reasonable assumption that the person posting is just out to fuck with people if their IP doesn't trace back to where they claim to be from. It would take only moments to do.

    Ask yourself why they haven't done this. The reasonable answer is that they have, and just don't want to spoil the mystery by saying it's someone fucking with the fans. They're using it as a draw, and knowingly letting their users labor under the false assumption that it may be someone in the band. Saying 'we don't know' is bullshit, and disrespectful.

    Then again, what else could one expect from the Pleasure Dome?

    Fernando is a complete waste of bandwidth. Nothing but a VH apologist with a short list of moronic cliches which he recycles over and over.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he is in the VH camp. There's surely got to be a group of kiss-ass toadies telling the VH brothers that they're handling things just right

    Jimmy, you think that Ferblando is Mike?

    Hmmm... I've always thought he was Glenn.

    Quite similar posting style, and all.

    My first post! Hopefully I'm welcome here...

    I remember Brad saying once or twice that neither of these folks is affiliated with the band in any way. Good news, I think... I would hate to think that a band member is spending his time making 15,000 posts instead of making music!

    I thought it was pretty funny a few days ago when I saw him post his usual "?" in a thread and somebody quoted him and said "Yes, Fernando - what is your question?" [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    sorry - :cheap entertainment:

    Fernando with 15,000 posts of "????" is not a member a VH. Talk about wasting time on the internet.
