    I think he's pulling our collective legs. One of the posts, that of 12/12, was partially lifted from another blog.

    Why do people troll? Same reason. Attention-getting.

    I used to be that man but thankfully much better these last few years I still get these odd periods where I falter usually alcohol related lows

    Does the offer of cheering me up still stand? I'd hate to miss an opportunity like that

    The cheering is always available. I know, because I often falter too. Not from alcohol, for I am a non-drinker. Although hopefully I never become as isolated as Harlan in the blog link I posted.

    Thanks thats good to hear. I'm alot better now so probably won't need the cheering up after all. I had my xmas party last friday and drank enough to kill a man. Plus got dumped by a girl I was seeing the same night so all in all a night to forget. I have joined the pioneers now so I'll take care of the pennies and maybe the pounds will take care of themselves;-) Kill 2 birds with 1 stone as they say! Thanks again

    Your Friday night sounds like a prescription for disaster . It's good to know that you survived that. I never have been much of one for drinking, and I think drinking combined with the medication I'm using could very well kill me, so I don't think I'm going to start!

    We're still here to cheer you up if you need it, though .

    He also claims to be in IT, yet can write on his blog, "I now seem to be getting quite a few comments in what I originally assumed would be a fairly private journal."

    This has to be a stunt of some kind.

    He does seem quite erudite for someone who claims to have zero relationship skills.

    That could be me. I have near-zero relationship skills. Most of the Clydesdale forum can attest to that. :-)

    Fake or not, I wouldn't want to assume anything about this guy. It would be very lousy to taunt him, in case there is some issue there.
