^^^ This sounds a mess.
^^^ I think I know who you are talking about too,
but that was someone else.
Or maybe.. Wait.. I think he did. However, I doubt the guy I'm talking about would ever show his face again.
Does no one remember anything? Like a thread?
^ Try 'Achilles'.
I used to be an invincible warrior until I took an arrow to the heel.
^^^That tool is not 14.88 to 16.30! (See World Penis Size Map) Thus, not Andreus.
I can't for the life of me remember his name, but I remember the fall out when he was outted as a sock puppet. There was something in JUB back in those days that made it so vicious when someone everyone drooled over was found to be a fake.
This whole Andreus story reminds me of another forum I was a member of and a poster who was a lovely kid. He was diagnosed with cancer and died and the forum went into a bloody meltdown. About 2 weeks after he died his cousin joined the forum and told us all these wonderful stories about how much the forum had meant to the kid, and out of nowhere he disappeared, only to return a month or so later a fucked up scrambled egg after spending the time in "gay conversion therapy".
Long story short, turned out the original poster had never existed. Both were characters in this persons mind. He had a wonderful time building up one to die and then creating the new character to see what was going on.
Reading this thread, the similarities are mind blowing.
Mmmm this DOES sound like a syndrome. At least no money changed hands
(though I've heard a rumour that a venerable Canadian was commissioning a Californian to do something "artistic"
Personally I'm suspicious of any picture where the person isn't holding a sign with their e-mail address or username or something. At the very least I always assume it's possibly not really them. But if the person is remarkably goodlooking and trying to get a lot of attention and flirtation over a net forum? Instant suspicion.
Back in the day it was a common occurrence, good looking, somewhat troubled newbie enters the gates of JUB, everyone swoons and puts on their White Knight out fit, ready to save the poor tortured sex god. Said Sex God manages to piss someone off who goes on a hunt for clues that would make Miss Marple look like an amateur, and discovers it's a sock puppet. JUB's own Miss Marple drops the bomb, and all hell breaks loose.
I've been burnt several times on this forum, once by someone I really came to care for. We used to chat on MSN daily. After a while you become sort of immune to it and you allow yourself to be jaded. I take people on here now at face value. You are who you say you are and if you're not it's no skin off my nose, you're just words on a screen.
There are several people here who I really care about, that I've chatted too for years, and if they turned out to be a sock puppet I'd castrate them, but they're all older members who've been around for years.
I recently said to someone that there was something missing in JUB, comparing it to the way it was when I was overly active. I think it's the fact that the trust a lot of us had in the people here has been abused so many times over the years. There's only so many times you can allow yourself to fall victim to a fraud before you start assuming everyone is a fake account.
I don't know Telly.
gmoney is a real, live breathing person. He lives in Atlanta and I've had my cock in his mouth.
Elvin is real. Met him at a couple JUB meets and went out with he and gmoney a couple times.
Stacy is real. I met her in St Louis. She's quite a charming lady She was there when someone desecrated the Pope.
Anyone remember jwest? Now that was a handsome man, too.
Someone desecrated the pope? Why do all the fun things happen when I'm half a world away.
I have to come to Atlanta one of these days. You're one of the JUBBERS I've been wanting to meet for years.
Marvelous! We do need to start having more JUB meets again. I really enjoy interacting with posters in person.
It was horrifying (to me). At dinner, someone placed a name tag on a portrait of the Pope that said HI MY NAME IS: It stuck really well and they couldn't get it to peel off of the frame.
awesome, I'd have been horrified and amused at the same time.
I somehow missed that thing about the Pope, but I heard that somebody did "something" to the picture (which was, as I recall, behind one end of a long table, near Stacy and a couple others), now about five years later I find out what they did...

O.K., then! Stacy is Confirmed as REAL, too!!
And, NO!, Darlin', I never had any doubts about that!
As for Andreus, it would seem to be the general consensus that he was a Fake.
However, I'm still not buying into that. Well ... at least not Completely.
"Sixth" made a good point about the last name thing with Mitri. However, I've already said I never knew of last names until BostonPirate brought it up. As strong as a Character that Andreus was, perhaps he convinced his younger brother to keep up the Thanos name to protect their Real identity here in The States?
All right! I'll admit I'm quite biased when it comes to this topic! I truly Enjoyed, and still Cherish, my interactions with the Persona of Dreu! We didn't always agree! "He" pissed me off a Lot of times! And, yet, we managed to continue our interaction through respect for each others' views. And, those discussions, and sharing of "personal stuff", extended beyond the confines of this site, JUB!
As I've already said, Andreus was Real to ME! And, IF "He" was a Creation of a Brilliant "Puppeteer", I was still interacting with an Amazing Individual!
Whoever "He" may have been, or not, I'm still quite Grateful for the Experience!
All the more reasons to ... no matter what ...
WISDOM is the Knowledge you've gained ... After you could have used it! _Me
next you are going to tell me that dreams don't exist,
that they are figments of the imagination ...............
awed by the power of words
Thankfully this is 2012 and not 1995 for those of you like me who are old enough to remember being on the net in its primitive days... where having a scanner was like owning your own tuxedo and so pics were sparse and frequently stolen/re-used by others.
If any question ever *seriously* came up it's not like this isn't a day and age where any of us couldn't just up and make a youtube or something saying "oh hi my name is x from such and such forum" lol. I've never been seriously witch hunted anywhere as a fake but if I were that's what I'd probably do.

Depends, is my wish your command Chaz?
THREAD OF THE YEAR!. Really though all this drama. I'm flabbergasted. This thread is mystery novel. James Patterson couldn't have wrote it better himself. All we need is that final clue.
The only thing I remember of Andreus is that I would avoid him because he seemed to have some bully tendencies but I don't remember any of this shit, of him dying or a brother or any of that.
<i think the strangest part is that a newbie would want to know about dude and seems to have some inside knowledge about him too.>
This is what struck me as strange as soon as this Thread was started! I think someone is trying to recreate the same conflict as it existed many years ago. DONT FEED THE IDIOT
Or move the Thread to Gay Stories where it belongs!
yeah Enchanted and Sex kitten,
how did you find out the name Andreus in the first place ?
And Bostonpirate, why do you simply disappeared ?
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
I got compared with Andreus by few members,than I had a pm conversation about it with some member.That's how I got interested in all this
And,no.I'm not Andreus.I posted a pic with a paper in my hands,to prove the handsome guy from the photos is me

I certainly remember Samurai/Misfit.
It was interesting that this avatar was smart enough to simply self-delete in order to prevent banning and an inability to return as yet another persona.
He's not the one that Stacy is referring to though. His name escapes me at the moment.
Who am I? ...I hope I'm not real.

Andreus left some words behind on a blog:
Oddly enough, the blog really never told the reader much more about him than was known from this site.WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 02, 2006
It seems that, as I have such a big fresh mouth, I would not have been able to resist this endeavor sooner.
If that comment makes any sense, we will get along just fine.
Being a gay Muslim is a rough road to tread. Rather than accept the limitations that either group has been forced to accept in our era, I have chosen the much harder path; to forge my own road as a unique creature. I have come to terms with my sexual identity as well as my spiritual identity, and I have done it by seeking only the most pragmatic of solutions. As I gained courage and strength from being a muslim in a christian world, instead of letting the dogma guide me, I chose to borrow that strength to find and forge my own view of enlightenment. A path that assumed that God knew best when he created me Gay. Any divine force that can create a universe, certainly knows how to get such a minor part of it as Andreus Thanos exactly the way he intended.
I am half Greek and half Persian, but my mother's side of the family emigrated to Croatia from the Persian lands centuries ago. I had the good fortune of being born in America, the place that they chose to build a life in together. Their relationship with each other as well as mine with them has never been anything less than intense and challenging. With so many cultural currents pulling in so many directions, we were almost doomed from the start as a functional family unit. But thats a story for later. For now, just understand that I've travelled the world with my family as a child and young man, and now as a young man on my own, trying to find my place in it.
The choices I have made have at times been as extreme as my heritage. I have no shame for doing whatever I have had to do to survive. I am an evolving creature with every passing day, so dont be suprised when I occasionally take a hard turn into uncharted territory. just buckle in, and you are welcome along. As long as we greet every life as sacred and every human being entitled to kindness, you are welcome.
This blog is where I want to continue my exploration of being a young gay man in search of love, fun, sexual expression, and acceptance while being a young Muslim man in search of his soul.
Its hard to figure out where the gay part meets with the Muslim part, and I have never faltered in the exploration.
Yeah... thats what we'll call it.
Exploration of my parts.
Of course, I've always needed a helping hand for for such undertakings.
what do you say?
are you up to it?

I don't know.
