what happened to Rothes?

is there a thread explaining why Rothes was banned?

There was a bit of chatter in GM about Rothes being an "extravagant creation" (i think that's a switz quote) from NZ which i assume means New Zealand. I don't see why he should have been banned for being from New Zealand, probably he's a Swiss person living in NZ, who cares, this is cyberspace. I didn't always see eye to eye with Rothes but he was a sincere fan of Patty and the other Swiss players, and he was one of a very few people posting in the Patty forum on a regular basis. Also Rothes had a very unique and creative posting style and use of language, some of his grammatical constructions and the words he made up were absolute diamonds, i wish i could remember them all. Of course Rothes was a bit of a stark raving lunatic as well but then that's par for the course for true Patty fans - it wouldn't surprise me if we all end up in the same mental institution someday (Patty included - can't you just hear her screaming "Disgusting bitch!" at the ward nurse for bringing her the wrong flavored yogurt at breakfast? Or imagine Patty and JR getting into a huge fight over who gets the last chocolate doughnut!) But seriously, it would take nothing short of a literary genius to invent a character like Rothes, so i assume he was authentic.

Rothes good luck, man

i guess he was a geniun then vogus. Rothes was a complete creation of a guy from New Zealand. He's not Swiss, he's not Christian, but yes he is a Patty fan. You may also have seen the posts of posters name 'Pudence' - that was the same guy. I don't quite understand what happened or why someone would put quite so much effort into a character, but i did confront him and he isn't that bad a bloke.

btw i also commented on how well he wrote for as a swiss person considering his first language is actually english but he didn't seem to understand what i was saying - apparently it was just bad typing.

i would post some of 'Pudence' posts for you but unfortunately (well fortunately actually) all of the ones about how supporting black people is immoral and how he would like to finger the "jubjub" of shenay perry have been deleted.

he claims this is not his real personality but how knows what to believe

good lord.

so that is why he got banned, for writing that about Shenay?

but listen, Rothes sometimes posted in German and maybe also, if my memory serves me, Italian, and i doubt that's something you can fake if you are just some random guy from New Zealand. As recently as the "Patty's hardcourt season" thread, he made a post in German, and in general he seemed very knowledgeable about all the Swiss players.

to be honest it's all a bit confusing. i have a decent grasp of german and italian in terms of speaking but i don't know much about grammar, syntax etc. i do know that their are plenty of converters around that could perform that task if your not having an actual conversation.

all i know is he is a poster i used to talk to called "allegra" on msn. i had my doubts about rothes but i never followed them through because as you said he is a knowledgable patty fan and what difference does it really make to me where he lives.

we soughted it out but he was very aggressive initially when i confronted him - saying i was so gullible etc etc - which indicates he thought he had something over us.

rothes didn't get banned for the shenay things - that was 'pudence'. i don't really know what rothes got banned for but it seems like he got bored with the personality and let himself go.

The immediate reason Rothes got banned was sending me a really obnoxious PM. I reported "her", not knowing any of this persona stuff. But from what people insinuated it sounds like the mods were watching The Poster Formerly Known As Rothes for a while before that. I don't really know anything about the persona bit, but Rothes has been gone for a little while.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

Rothes was a fake person? WTF She/he was very convincing tbh and had a lot of friends on this board. Some people have too much time on their hands it seems.
