Who is EJ Sunday - Really? new  

Recent suspicions over alter egos and the subsequent posting of 'photographic proof' of users' identity has raised hard questions about the users of TW. Yet one high-ranking TWer has repeatedly refused to disclose his identity - I'm referring, of course, to EJ Sunday.

Normally I would let this pass. Everyone who uses a message board has their right to anonymity. However, those in charge of the running of the board have special responsibility in at least proving they exist. How would you feel, as the honest ad-clicking citizens of TW, to learn that EJ was no more than a ghost user created by Sysiyo, or one among his power-hungry clan, designed to tighten his grip among the elite of the board and turn it into a yeti-themed yaoi site?

Who is the person behind EJ Sunday (the moderator) and EJ TheByRoadGuy? Why doesn't he show his face?

Okay, fair enough: I suggest there may be - without being too insulting, I hope - many good reasons why he doesn't show his face. The TWer is a vain creature and does not want hir ego crushed. Yet there are ways to prove one's identity without posting a photo. (I will accept, for instance, the three typical legal documents: driver's licence/passport/utility bill, etc.)

All we know about him is that he likes football and that awful Barry Manilow song: I have created two-dimensional alter egos with more personality than this.

In addition, in times past, he has told us (in scant detail, admittedly) that he is German and works as a journalist. Still this is very little to go on. Yet on those details I have constructed an identikit photo representation of what I imagine him to look like:



EJ, am I close? I challenge you to post a photo of yourself HOLDING A BOWIE ALBUM.

A very intelligent and charming man, actually new [re: Black Prism]  

He used to have his photo on his profile: isn't it there any more?

I contend that all this post-your-photo-prove-you're-real stuff is nonsense purveyed by skilled-in-Photoshop alter ego creators to create the illusion that an easily faked photo somehow lends credence to an alter.

The only way to prove we're all real is for everyone to post their names and addresses, and then write to everyone else who does the same confirming that they are themselves. Or at least have power of attorney over who they claim to be.

Slan libh,

On the contrary, my leprechaun-humping friend. I'm confident that many of the false alter egos on this site could be weeded-out by this elementary test. I, on the other hand ...



Oh Dara! How I wish it was you in my arms!

Love,

I posted this picture



Of EJ in the , Barry Manilow & me thread.

In reply to:

[Dara] He used to have his photo on his profile: isn't it there any more?


Yes and no. Yes, it's in the EJ Sunday (the moderator) profile, but no, it's not in the EJ TheByRoadGuy profile.

Thread killer new [re: Tristan]  

Ah, phooey. Is that really him??

Apologies for not spotting that. I normally only have chance to read TW late at night and I don't particularly want to be clicking on Barry Manilow threads shortly before I turn in.

It's a strange photo, mind. Almost like a professional shoot for a camp newsreader. And why is the pic in *your* photobucket account? Are you sure that's not you, Mr Tristan, covering for your friend? Tell me, do you have many photographs of Christian in your possession?

Re: Thread killer new [re: Black Prism]  

I've often had the notion that EJ is Tristan's alter ego or vice versa.

There's a picture of EJ/Tristan loading a car with suitcases in somebodies Livejournal, but I can't recall whose.

I also had his address once to which I sent a tape & maltesers & he sent a CD in return.

But are EJ & Tristan the same person??

Kudos to you for not (mis)using the French au contraire, my liver-loving chum.

Thanks for being considered an as good person as Tristan.

And to be honest, the picture in the EJSunday account is a little old. But at the time of registering with TW it was the only pic in digital format I had of myself. I am looking more mature these days as Dara, th0mas, NoGame and Adam will certainly agree.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

The EJ Files new [re: EJ]  

Ture... the guy we met was looking more mature... but who knows, perhaps you paid him for appearing as you alter-ego. And to make it seem more real, you also bought some actress to play his wife. And then you bought tickets for the concert. Also you are on N24 - a channel, featuring not much more than you show and documentaries about battle ships. You probably bought that as well.

Also I never saw you and Tristan at the same time.

What insane plan you must have with this message board if you put that much efford into it?


Come and buy my tanks
