HEY! Here's an idea!! Why doesn't Rex just cut and paste the responses he WANTS and eliminate the rest? He can just pretend that he never hurled any names or insults, used a host site to threaten those with whom he disagrees, or raged in any childishly vengeful manner whatsoever! And it'll just look like he got the Fodor's police to side with him and squash all those irritating people who ask him any kind of pesky question other than "where do we send you our money Rex?" Yeah! That's it!!! There can never be too many Rex promotions on the All Rex All the Time Site!!

I've got a few condos for rent, but I'm just a hobby landlord, it's NOT my business! All you snakey slimey cowards who claim otherwise should be drawn and quartered! And DON'T call me names, you gutless wonders!! I can't win no matter what I say here, so if you don't like my
condos, don't read this. If you post anything detrimental to my business....er, hobby...I'll have Fodor's hunt you down and sling you over
a bounty hunter's saddle.

Please contact me directly about my condo and DON'T make me mad by claiming that I'm trying to promote something here! I'll defend myself until
Armageddon or the next six month lease I sign, whichever comes first.

s.fowler, Re: "C'mon guys. Either sign your name and email and stand behind what you say or stuff it. I'm not fond of Rex and his ego, but I'm less fond of cowards posting anonymous invective."

Touché! I'm with you on this 100%.

Because Rex is desperate to sell his tour guide services here. So desperate that he even impersonates Fodor's editors to prevent anyone from saying anything about it!

Many of you have no doubt seen references I have posted, here and there, to "my" fall Fools trip to the south of France, tentatively planned for September 9-October 32, 2112. I believe that this will be the first "true" suckers trip - - that is, a trip concocted by me "in" a message "thread" here - - and evolved entirely through Internet communications between myself and the gullible fools I've solicitied solely through this forum. Of course, eventually others ("non-Fodorite fools") may end up among the scammed. But for now, this is an "all-Fodorites, all fools, all scammed" endeavor.

Let me repeat, and I hope that other prospective participants will confirm this - - this trip is totally for-profit, and no financial windfall will exist for anyone planning, leading or participating in this trip, except myself . I will not pay an identical, and equally divided share of all trip expenses with any other participant. I am in the "business" of small group tours. Small group tours are my livelihood and paranoid obsession.

A few people have even raised the question of excessive self-promotion, or my "hogging" the board to bring attention to this trip. They are correct.

To that end, I feel certain that a web page will be yet another way to communicate worthless information to other Fools - - especially prospective fools - - but equally to IRS agents who are simply curious as to how "my" little enterprise is profiting.

I am no social wizard. I understand a few fundamentals about creating enemies and I ply my trade to that end. I intend to create a web page (more accurately, a series of web pages, I guess) to provide more detailed information about my psychological disturbances.

I am placing a first draft of what I plan to use as the "home page" to what I plan to put up on Geocities. I will probably plan to actually put this up in the next few days, after some feedback - - either from the "sheep" here - - or via e-mail, from my "spam list" of uninterested fools and prospective suckers.

Best wishes,

Rex Bickers

The "Fools trip" - - a small group of fools who think I'm taking them to the south of France and northern Italy

Introductory paragraph

What is a Fool? If you send me money, you can be one too!
Why a Fool trip? And who would stupid enough to go on it? No one yet, but as long as I breathe I'll promote it.

What is the itinerary of the trip? What does it matter, just send me your money.
Does it include air travel to Europe? None of your beeswax. Just send money.
How firm is my backside? Wanna find out?

Is there any more info about the "villa stay"? I'm in touch with Dr. Abate right now.
What diseases are there to catch in the Lake Giardia region? Send money.

Who is foolish enough to go on the trip? Give me your credit card number and I'll tell you.
How much money will I earn? All that I can bilk you for.

Links, related websites

===============================

For starters, I already HAVE uploaded "Why a Foool trip? And who would be foolish enough to go?" You can read it at

http://www.geocities.com/foolsandthe...soonseparated/

I hope that this serves another useless purpose - - to let fools know about "my" trip whilet using this board to plastert information that takes up too much space and is too much "in everyone's face".

Wonder what the penalty is for continued impersonation of site editors?

This is an experiment. Wondering whether this will be deleted soon after it hits the top 50.

Sorry to bring it up.

What tester, are you kidding? Fodor's NEVER deletes the rantings, ravings or promotions of one of its employees!

WHEN?
Will you poor people ever come to the realization that the crazy who posts under the name of REX is a nut?
And that he is a not an MD who "Spent the night saving the life of a two pound infant"?
This post is good therapy for a nutcase like Rex and for all of you who feel the need to pick on him

Thank you for topping my message (whenever this was last done).

and yes I am a neonatologist (a pediatrician who specializes in newborn intensive care). The American Academy of Pediatrics can verify if you insist.

Best wishes,

Rex

This is pasted from another thread:

Message: Uh oh.

It's worse than I thought. Based on Ed's information that Rex sometimes posts as "bashful", I did a search. There were a few hits. One hit was on one of the "Join my trip" threads that Rex started. Bashful posted a response in support of Rex's right to advertise his trips here, and then Rex thanked "bashful." The other hits were on legitimate travel threads in which "bashful" started the thread to get some mundane travel advice about an upcoming Italy trip.

So what do we have here? Rex is willing to post under a fake name when he doesn't have all of the answers, to preserve his status on the board as all-knowing, maybe so he can belittle others with travel questions. And when attacked, he'll post as a fake supporter of his, and then thank himself for the support.

Whoa! If you don't believe it, do your own search.

I don't know who this "paster" is nor what (s)he purports to show, except that (s)he is my sniper, out to attack me above all other activity.

But I will maintain my sanity.

Best wishes,

Rex
