My take? It's all real. It is not performance art, calculated griefing or forum gaming.
He says he speaks some English, but struggles with it. He says he tried to get a job at Linden Lab, but felt he was discriminated against when he was turned down. He says he has serious mental health issues. He says he really believes he is posting as a concerned activist working on a good cause. He says it really does bother him when he is mocked and teased, but he feels he is sacrificing himself for the greater good. (All of this is information that can be obtained from his public posting and not new information from a private conversation.)
One woman's opinion.
His contact information is freely given, publicly posted and easily accessed. I will not, however, post it here.
He said he would "salute" me on the forums and invited me to speak with him again.
ETA: Wasted gave me permission to post about him and our conversation.
ETA2: Congratulations to Wasted who has recently obtained a job at a petrol refinery.
ETA3: I think this is my Wasted "salute." ;)
Wasted said on gV...
"I can report any crime next to me, If I was living in Washingtong (USA) , I would call the police every day to complain about secondlife."
