Not retired, but refreshed!

Was Above Alpha Q Anon?
No, he’s the Deep State.
Who is he?
A poster who hasn’t been posting for some time.
He is/was an American military figure. Some think he died in Afghanistan, some think he has gone underground.
No one is certain, to my knowledge.
I always thought he was the War Nerd, but then the Nerd wrote a book which was nothing like.
Still he could have simply changed styles, and he did disappear at about the same time.
I doubt he was real military. His stuff ranged from fairly well-informed to utterly ridiculous, like Tom Clancy but not nearly so well writtten.
He did say some pretty delusional stuff but I’m no judge of his being a real soldier or not.
Who was the War Nerd?
A military blogger, actually several people
Military is strange. Tom Clancy was an insurance man until he wrote Red October. When Russians asked him how he knew so much about their technology his reply was "I made it all up"
OTOH I read a book "How To Make War" which was a guide to military gaming, and I swear Clancy had lifted terms right from it
And who are the favourite posters NOW?
And another Happy New Year!
And on the First of February a Happy Chinese New Year!
Favourite is too subjective.
Most valuable contributor would be a better question.
Big Brother of Lenin is always good value.
Phyxius, Bowerbird, StillBlue, Derideo_Te, Montegriffo.
Statistikhengst, politicalcenter, LangleyMan among my favourites.
Special mention to Moi621.
Here's to the Aussie Shelas.
So somebody should start a new thread under that name?
Or the thread could be renamed.

I always liked that bit of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
Nobody likes Lindis, it appears.
Jack Hayes, sunsettonmy and bringiton bring out the best in me...
Yes we do. Goes without saying.
That's fine, then.
I'm my favorite poster.
