Yeah, I asked him that, and he said it was his cousin taking the pictures down (immediately after they were posted). Strange.

So, let's say for argument's sake that that WAS his cousin (not his "Friend" like Matt was told). If that's true, then how come all the labels for the pictures read "Gregg" until last night? Then they were changed to Greg with one G.  Could it be that GNT's cousin had spelled his own name wrong?

THEN the pictures were taken down altogether.

Some said "The Master" underneath them (GNT's old nickname for himself), but that was instantly erased too. Since his cousin supposedly had the same name, does that mean that he had the same nickname too?  ;D

When you put all that stuff together and pile on the threats of lawsuits....well, that whole "cousin" theory just doesn't make much sense.

Of course, you could go with the much simpler theory that someone found some pics of GNT, and he's unwilling to cop to that. Instead, in a last desperate effort to "Keep the mystery alive" he invented all these conflicting stories and attempted to edit everything he could on the web, long after the guys had downloaded and saved it all. It could just be a classic case of "Oh what a tangled web we weave..."

I suppose it comes down to which scenario sounds more realistic to you.

I think I have probably leaned more towards the second, because the first one is just too "Magic bullet theory" for me.

But the bottom line? The fun has been had, and I don't think there's much of a mystery anymore. As the title said....it's solved, and we can all move on.

It took GNT's picture to get Apok to post here?

Actually, that's EXACTLY what it took to get me to register.  I like the atmosphere.  I'll definitely make a point out of checking in every day.  Hell, anything to keep me from actually doing my job...

So the guy I saw Friday afternoon next to the tree thingy with the black curly hair is Gregg right?  He just never wanted anyone to know what he looked like right?  This must be something that has carried on from RS and GH because I don't ever remember reading about why anyone cared what he looked like here at JD.  
Is he mad because he didn't like the photo or is he mad because he didn't want anyone to know he was younger than what he lead everyone to believe?

On a totally unrelated note:
It's nice to see you over here Apok....how's the happy couple doing?   :D

The couple is, indeed, happy.  I'm having the best time ever.

Indeed (I meant to say something earlier) - welcome to JD Burn!   ;)  We certainly stop by your neck of the woods enough, so it's nice to see you guys return the favor occasionally (though Bob and Matt stop in from time to time)...  Now go get Tim too!   :-*  Enjoy...

And to stay on topic...

Thoughts?   ::)

... Just to see if he does anything about it over here.

And I think that someone should add the GNT logo to this picture. You know, the same one he has on all of his avatars.

Wow, that was good for a laugh. I'm glad that I caught the original image that Scott posted.  :)

Honestly though, with the non-threatening boyish face and the Aussie accent, I bet he'd get laid pretty easily over here. Maybe even with girls.

You could totally see him blowing the delivery though:

I'd like to take you back to my place for some tasty white-wine spritzers.

Then I'd like to give you a sensual massage while my Star Wars action figures watch.

They are quite voyeuristic. Especially Bossk.

Thoughts?

Just from a graphic design standpoint, that every-first-letter-is-a-bold-cap thing looks bad.

Its ok to bold the first letter of your article (or in this case, post), since its like a substitution for a drop-cap. But every single first letter shouldn't be bolded. Its not good design.

The drop-cap (or bold cap) gives the reader an indication of where to start the article. We don't need instruction on where to start every paragraph.

Nope, I didn't add it over at RS. I know he has power there and will get upset, which might mean a banning for me (Over there).

Actually, I'm going to switch back to my old avatar here.

Hmmm, did I just find that somewhere else?  Who could've put that there, of all places....
