    As I explained to your buddy a week or so ago, that person is not and has not been a member here on this forum. You guys are either looking in the wrong place, or this is growing to become some lame pun.

    Well I just joined here a while ago so I don’t know who this buddy of mine is that you are referring too.... hooksguru claimed to be a writer/editor for you over on the steam forums... if he isn’t who he claims to be then this would be a first I’m hearing about it.

    This seems so random that I researched the guy. He indeed has claimed to be part of Guru3d on steam forums. Which is just wrong thing to do.

    Yeah, "...we reported them at GURU3D at the time of the new Tesla's model's release..."

    from your first link.

    Also from second link claims to "have an evaluation copy for GURU3D/NeoGAF..."

    so let me get this straight after reviewing his posts: the guy is a pathological liar who represents himself as an editor here to garner respect/internet points, has a super autistic & shallowly over-curated steam profile where he attempts to present himself as professional (except it just comes across as empty posturing)...& he has now ninja vanished after, in all probability, discontinuing his antipsychotic meds?

    thats procreating awesome. welcome to the forums.

    This is why you should take your antipsychotic medication everday, else you start seeing triple strawberry hookers.

    Heh, someone has linked this thread in his profile page comments.

    Maybe he realised about two months ago that someone might actually check if he is part of Guru3D and he'd better disappear quietly before being called out.

    He was mentioned on a podcast where he was warning people who invited him on not to go ahead with it
    He listed many affiliations then deleted it
    There is a thread on Steam on Doom forums where the exchange gets heated and the excuse he gave why he did not appear on the show was because he felt that he did not think the Podcaster was professional because he had a hotmail for his contact
