    who is cincinnatus

    Hello ppls,

    thought i would create a thread about who is cincinnatus. This way we dont block up the mt buller champs thread speculating.

    by doc:
    Conspiracy theory: cincinnatus = arosar

    Any other possibilities?
    by arosar:

    Nope . . . not me.

    I have a theory though. Note the posting style, the subject (ie. by-laws), and the labouring on meaning.

    It certainly has a lot of the hallmarks of past Cordover campaigns. I don't know if it's him but the temptation to check out the IPs and find out is close to getting the better of me.

    If anyone has any other suspects feel free to send me a PM.

    My hunch is that Cincinattus is an employee of Cordover.

    The GURU has always been open with his identity and stands by his opinion even if he gets stoned from all sides. And he has never posted a carping thread (except perhaps in retaliation to fg7's serves). The cin. posts are not the GURU's style.

    And my money is not on the medal manager.

    In fact I am guessing ....is that really the time? I must get some sleep.

    I have a definite view based on content and style of the posts...I think Cin. is >>>>


    But send you a PM re suspect? First I would like you to say whether unmasking CL was a good thing for the board. After all; that action of the unmaskers has led to CL disappearing from view. A good thing or a bad thing?

    unmasking cincy is a good idea cause of the claims he is making. A person with nothing to hide hides nothing. So if this person is on the level, he shouldnt hide behind anonymity.

    I actually think Paul is close if not correct. I've had a PM suggesting that cincinnatus could be an employee or associate of CG and I think this fits. A particular name has been suggested but I am reluctant to state it here.

    Scratch Cordover as a suspect.

    jammo has also been named as a suspect but I don't believe it for a moment; jammo knows the by-laws much, much better than this charlie.

    I'm not convinced that CL was conclusively unmasked but clearly the trail was getting hot.

    As for cincinnatus, unless he's going to start posting something other than rubbish then he is thoroughly dispensable. OTOH, if he's going to start posting sensibly ...

    did anyone seriously suggest that jammo could be cinny. I would be highly surprised if Jammo was cinny. Apart from what Kevin has said about Jammo's knowledge of the by laws, but also Jammo from my reading of his post on here, has never been backward in being forward in giving his opinion and putting his name to his posts. I think that if jammo was to be critical and post here about by law matters, he would use his own name.

    I completely agree with you man....Cinn should post more sensibly. Like stop harpin' on about esoteric nonsense that no one can understand. Best to talk in lingo that the commoner can get see. So he should bang out phrases like 'conflict of interest', 'lifeless joint' , 'prohibitively expensive'. I mean, who gets by-laws?

    I agree with gg's comments re Jammo. Furthermore I don't think Jammo has a motive, whereas [insert name here] most certainly does.
