DELETE FUCKING EVERYTHING!

Reddit justice strikes again. I just found this event unfolding and I thought I’d share the lulz. To provide some context, apparently some guy called [Name Redacted]1 has created some fake online personas, one of which is called Grandpa Wiggly which has a very popular Facebook profile among other things. This fake persona is then trying to drive traffic to his site by posting fictional stories. He then decided to utilize reddit at some point, by posting IAMAs and so on, and eventually he decided to claim that his actual self online is really the grandson of this Grandpa Wiggly.

And then the shit hit the fan.

What happened then was nothing but hilarious. Literaly within minutes, if not seconds, of damning evidence being posted into reddit, exposing the fraud of Wiggly, the evidence in question was removed from the internets. Comments started being deleted. Accounts were closed. Profiles were made private. Photos removed. It became so bad that those who found the evidence had to take screenshots of everything because they knew it was going to be immediately removed. I’ve never seen such an excellent sample of DELETE FUCKING EVERYTHING before, but it was truly awesome. Especially the detective work and the comments of some of the redditors were especially lol-worthy, particularly because Grandpa Wiggly and wordsauce had gone into full blown crisis control mode and were denying the universe.

This kind of thing makes me look inadequate really.

So remember, don’t try to scam people online, and especially not redditors.  Don’t mess with the internets yo. Its serious business!

  1. The person in question has contacted me privately after a year or so after this entry was posted and has addressed my main concerns of his act. Mainly that he was trying to pass a fake persona as real for nebulous reasons. Given this change of attitude and a more mature outlook, I have agreed to remove his IRL name so as to avoid spilling over into his AFK life. []

  1. The inaccuracies in your article should be pointed out. There is no evidence that I tried to scam and/or solicit anything from anybody. I made all of 20 bucks — not even enough to pay for hosting — from the website, a website I started at the behest of the Reddit community. Furthermore, it wasn't crack internet detectives that outed me, it was one guy from my past who doesn't like me. He pointed at me and said my name, from there everything was easy. I didn't bother deleting anything, just made my profiles private for the time being. Who has the time to police their various internet profiles deleting comments from people who don't know how to spell?

    Grandpa Wiggly isn't a troll, he's a novelty account, plain and simple, a fictional character with one purpose: to entertain. The real trolls here are the ones who tried to cut me down and make me look like some mayonnaise profiting monster. All they had to do was say Grandpa Wiggly wasn't real, but instead they decided to exacerbate the situation by making up baseless accusations, citing no proof whatsoever, all so they could incite anger. That's the definition of a true troll right there.

    1. Shut the hell up. You are a fraud through and through, their is even screenshots of you trying to deny all this crap and their is plenty of evidence of you deleting your posts, plenty, and everyone saw them. Quit trying to deny it, you got caught, accept it fuckface.

    2. Dude, you were obviously not running Wiggly as a novelty account, the fact that you tried to pass yourself as his grandson is proof of this. This is further shown by your denial when it became known following by you DELETING FUCKING EVERYTHING that would add more evidence to the case.

      If Wiggly was a just to entertain, you'd have no issues coming clear once you were called on it, but you didn't. You panicked and tried to cover your tracks…badly.

      1. FWIW their is no evidence wiggles scammed for money that was all made up. i still can't beleive people fell for a pix of robert duvall. i knew he was trolling down the river

  2. You'd think a self proclaimed anarchist would applaud chaos & disorder & condemn the udder lack of authority. Guess your just a fuckin phony too. Amirite???

  3. Completely unrelated to this post: What do you think of Ian m banks’ Culture?
