I was moved to complain about Bigbadwolf to the administrator of the SE26 forum when, using an ingenious graphic, he accused me of being a w**ker (begins with 'w', rhymes with 'banker'.) I've got hardened to him now.

BBW did offend some of us on various webs, I never replied to any of his taunting messages. He will only stay if he gets somebody to reply to him, he glories in getting back at anyone who shows that they have been insulted.
He is still in many places but uses other names there. He has a certain format using a template to his messages that stick out a mile.

My guess is that Se23.com's Brian is only part caricature. His persona is basically a self-accentuated voice of his disdain for the state of current society, aswell as his right-wing politics. He does, however, realise the attention such a voice will attract in an otherwise passive environment, and subsequently plays on that.


I believe there is an appropriate expression involving kettles and pots. This is a very good analysis of BBW if anybody was interested.

Brian not real? I don't believe it. If he is a caricature, it doesn't go far enough.

I wonder what it must be like to be a real person and have your existence questioned by an online community. It's like Sartre for the 21st century. I was once accused of being a plant on another board. That was odd enough. Brian - come defend yourself! (Your silence is lending credence to the conspiracy.)

Interesting about BBW's reference to Brian not drinking coffee. I see him as more of a tea drinker, but can imagine him making the odd cup of instant, whilst deploring the modern habit of spending an executive's ransome on a middle-class-professional wifi-accessible skinny cappucino.

Brian?

I have just noticed this post. Sorry been busy.
I did notice the title before but as BBW involved I assumed it refered to The Film and not me. Not being a great fan of the film ( as I believe peoples
beliefs should not be ridiculed ) . Also what would have happened if a film of the same type had been made about Mohammed.

I won't bother to read the possible rantings of BBW on another forum as I would imagine it would be offensive and or rubbish. Coping with one forum is quite enough thanks.

I am always amused at the number of people who think I am very right wing. I talk to a great many people and my views are often well to the left of their's.
I do tend to sometimes play devil's advocate , but I am sure I am not the only one.

I am surprised and thank you for your interest and I wish you all a very happy Easter Holiday

I am a member of the sydenham forum where this BBW posts. He is rather tiresome. But you've got to feel sorry for him. I get the feeling he is very lonely and therfore desperate for attention. Problem is if you give him any he just gets worse. I guess at school he was one of the kids we would now call Special Needs. Most deffinately on the Autistic spectrum. They make for interesting friends usually - but sadly in his case not for long, thats why he has to move on all the time.

He's not autistic, he's a very naughty boy

Brian,

I tip my hat in your direction for your thoughtful response.

Over the years, bigbadwolf has posted passionately on a number of local forums including this one.

Local forum for local people, eh Tubbs!


I wonder what is driving the motivation for bigbadwolf proposing another fairy tale over at the other forum?

Dear Cellar Door
Just noticed your post. Too be honest no idea who BBW is so no idea if I have met him under his christian name before. Your guess good as mine.
As I said I have not read the items on the other site and cannot be bothered so to do.

Hi Brian,

The only nugget of information from over there that sticks in my mind is that bigbadwolf would appear to still monitor this site. Although, I don't think they have posted on here since 2009.

I think that bigbadwolf may be one of those that have their posts explicitly approved or pre-moderated by this forum's owner before they are visible to other users.

Everything in pre-moderation, I suppose.

Didn't BBW huff and puff and blow Piglet's house down?

That was exactly my concern - but she's pals with the RSPCA so I'm sure they will re-house her!

I saw the 'Lisa' post too ... about the young, funny, Rugby playing chap her brother met.
