Kimkins – Admin Gary

It is clear to me that there are many Sock Puppets on Kimkins, and probably the most obvious of them is Lasttime4me, or Gary as his assumed name is. Some “facts” taken from his posts:

Added, as this kept on bugging me last night:

Just fyi… Gary aka Lasttime4me was part of the June biggest loser challenge and I remember him from when he first started. He got kinda grumpy and rude with me when I made a .10 mistake on his losses at that time… so I tend to believe that he’s really a person… or at least he was back in June. (and not the nicest person either unfortunately. )
(I’m not trying to bash him or anything… I just actually believe him to be real based on our emails and PM’s at that time.)

I was in a challenge with Gary too. I don’t believe he is a sockpuppet. He was very active in our group to be kimmer.

Deni – Thanks for stopping by, I am honored. I’m a great fan of yours.
Sorry, call me skeptical, but an email conversation doesn’t convince me that he is not a sock puppet.

Christy – I hear you, and I have read his posts in the challenges. I still believe that Kimmer created him to keep challenges moving and people motivated as she stayed in the Cafe when posting under her own name.
And when it comes to posting frequency, Kimmer was known for making a lot of posts on LCF. Not all of them are in the “Ask Kimmer” thread. She used to dominate the main lobby and would easily write 10 – 20 posts at a time.

wtg! Your Gary investigation has won you a spot in our blogroll.You can thank us by sending us some steaks.

LOL! For those that don’t know, “y.y.Incorporated” is Kimkins Exhausted: http://yustyucky.wordpress.com/

Well, since Heidi was quite busy in June cashing her money… I find it hard to believe that she had time to make up this “extra person” at that time. I also don’t think it would have been necessary at the time. Stuff inside in June was CRAZY busy… my volunteer hours at that time were through the roof unfortunately. Still kicking myself over that… I actually felt “sorry” for her. (puking smiley here).
Anyway… I just wanted to let you know what I knew about the situation.
I think we need to be careful with making assumptions about everyone now a days… doubting and wondering who everyone really is all the time is not healthy for us. :) But, believe me… I understand! My only concern is that our own paranoia could turn off people still on the fence.
(i.e.- if Gary is real.. and someone knows him.. they would see this type of post and blow off the rest of what you have to say because obviously [to them] we’re “grasping at straws”) And frankly.. we don’t need to grasp at straws!
What Kimmer/Heidi has done is already wrong…. the hard, awful truth is out there.

anyway.. I hope I’m not “stepping on any toes” here. You don’t even have to post this…sadly I still feel a sense of responsibility in all of this, and I know from experience that when people post assumptions as if they were hard fast truth… it backfires on the very people we want to save and protect. :(

Deni – Of course I will post your comment. I appreciate all input and I really hope you are right that Gary is a real person. It has bothered me greatly what Kimmer has done to the online community; now I don’t trust anybody I “meet” online anymore.
But why would not Gary post B&A pictures? He clearly is very supportive of kimkins and has no problem adding other graphics and seems very computer literate.
If someone can convince me that Gary is an actual person, I’ll be more than happy to remove my post.

Looks like you have done a lot of research into this. Could you check Kimmers posts from that time frame and see if any match Gary’s since the PI said she was using a laptop and not using 2 different computers? if neither of them have a post time stamped at the same time for that period of time then you could use that also a possible reason to believe they are the same.

deni if you have those emails check them against Kimmers email IPs from that time frame if they match there is proof positive Gary is Kimmer.

2big – The last time I could access kimkins was at the time she did the deposition and “Gary” did post during that time period. However, Becky has said that Brandon often posts as Kimmer and he might be responsible for a lot of “Gary’s” posts as well. Most of them don’t say much anyway; just a KUTGW to a previous poster.
