[META] What's the deal with "bill bailey?"

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 10, 2013 at 12:14 PM

His posts seem like inane spam, and we constantly waste time getting them closed. Yet his account stays open and nothing ever happens to him. Why not? Is his writing some kind of brilliant satire that I'm missing? Is he our mascot? The secret owner Of PaleoHacks, Inc.?

I thought so too, Axial. Seems like a rather understandable confusion, as this forum works differently than most in this respect

It's kinda surprising that he bothers with coming back since all traces of his posts vanish into the ether each time.

I just didn't realize that they were coming from different accounts each time. I thought it was one troll account that for some reason never got disabled.

And I understand that sounds harsh, but I've seen your youtube videos and seen your posts on here, it may be harsh but it's the truth. You can ignore it for the rest of your life and chase delusions of gradeur till pigs fly or you can own up to it, learn about your body, amd actually change it. You can be a millionaire rockstar on a plane to Japan, but that person will still be you and unless you take care of yourself first, you'll still be the same miserably unhappy fuck, just on a plane instead. Stop spamming, start searching for answers, they're out there I promise.

Do you want to know how you're NOT going to rise up Bill? http://sivers.org/zipit . This is why you're not going to EVER rise up. You tell other people your goals and you reward yourself subconsciously because your brain thinks that these goals are coming/have come true now. This is why YOU WILL NOT RISE UP. Anyone who tells you otherwise is feeding you because they feel sorry for your pathetic ass. If you want something then go get it, DON'T SAY YOU'RE GOING TO GET IT, **FUCKING** GET IT.

Jfc stop being so pathetic and do something with your life. A billion people living on less than a dollar a day, somebody starves to death every 3 seconds, but no, you, somehow you made some sort of 'mistake' and now all is lost. Grow up dude, your pessimistic sorry Guilt tripping sob attitude is about as attractive as a pus filled wound. Trying to drag other people down to your level isn't going to make you feel stronger. Start by taking responsibility for yourself and enjoying your own life while you still have it. ffs.

@CD I see. I thought that I'd seen a lot of posts from the exact same account, but it looks like he's been slightly varying the names.

I posted this some weeks ago - [Meta] Can we disallow posting by unregistered users?

Some people thought it was a good idea; some people thought it would block users from posting.

The accounts he uses are not "the same" account. They are different every time.

Sometimes Paleohacks can be a little boring with all those poop and food questions. Bill Bailey makes it real life-like.

The problem is that he needs help.

Here is another META question for you - how can Paleohacks help Bill Bailey/ Adam Veritas? The guy does not even have money for food. Should we help people like him or should we ban them now and forever?

Is Paleohacks all-inclusive? Does it follow "we do not discriminate anyone" policy? Do we have a mission? Or is it an elite club that only special orthorexic foodies are allowed to join so we can discuss more food and poop questions?

Would would Hunter Gatherers do?

It's him or the next one that will take his place. There's always another one. I'm sorry it annoys you, but there's not much to do about annoying people, except not give them your attention.
