Looking through the Nemesis and Beagle Betrayal posts, one cannot help but draw a parallel. On the surface, the two look like completely separate issues involving very different people. In reality, you get a sense of deja vu when you read the Nemesis Saga, it reminds you so much of a similar situation involving the lead character in Beagle Betrayal.
Mr Beagle was well known for going round the fora setting up accounts under various user names, nothing unusual about that, however, in this case, he did so with the full knowledge and blessing of Site Team. Once he had been somehow discredited under a certain user name, he would be born again under a different one. The Regulars would spot this almost immediately, his posting style is not hard to spot and he wasn’t even trying to hide his identity. In some cases, he himself would privately communicate the fact to a number of people. However, not many would approach site team to ask them whether this was Mr Born Again, so they kind of covered their tracks with the change of username.
While setting up accounts under various usernames is rather common in the foral world, having such accounts deleted is not. You may want to ask the admins to remove some of your posts for personal reasons, but not your entire account. Mr Beagle makes a habit of asking for his accounts to be removed to stop people who know him under his various usernames, trying to connect the dots.
The Beagles seem to think that, by allowing people in under a different name, no-one will know who those “newbies really are. That simply isn’t the case, they are rather easy to spot.
The Beagles have a strange sense of loyalty. As shown on previous posts, when they decide to put someone on a very high pedestal, they stick to their decision even when the evidence that they’ve made a mistake is overwhelming, as was the case first with Mr Beagle, and later with their Nemesis.
Mr Beagle has fallen out with all those who trusted him, he’s lost all his friends in the foral world due to his behaviour. This include the Beagles themselves who, at one point, were prepared to let the whole site go to the dogs, quite literally, for the sake of sticking up for him. The Mass Cull of 2014 was largely aimed at those who had expressed their objections to Mr Beagle’s position within the Kingdom of Beagleland. Amongst the victims of the cull were some of those who had been involved in the development of the site from the start. But the cull was the end rather than the beginning, there is a long list of people who left the site, one way or other, because of Mr Beagle. Some joined the Ban Club and others went down the bugger off route, either way, the site had a lot of its blood drained as a result of Mr Beagle’s actions over the years.
The Beagles appeared to have finally seen the blinding light but it took a number of years for it to dawn on them, despite the number of people providing them with evidence that they were wrong and all the complaints submitted to them, officially or unofficially, by a number of well-known members. They either ignored it all, or those who made noise, were shown the door.
We are now seeing the very same thing happening again: those who have made the point of showing Nemesis wrong and arguing against his elevated position in the Kingdom of Beagleland, have also been relegated to the Ban Club. The site owners themselves are very reluctant to step in and correct what he has said and one has to wonder why that is. They don’t hesitate to step in when other prolific posters and regulars such as Openlaw say something they don’t agree with, yet they treat Nemesis with a lot of respect and allow him to roam free and advise everyone who has received a court claim, despite all the cases where his intervention has resulted in a potential risk or even a negative outcome to the poster.
