    Yeah I think this guy is on account number 25 at least since the Expose a Catfish thread was created. No telling how many before that. :grimace:

    This is just another example of profile discrimination. I have amazing auburn hair, all my own teeth, expressive eyebrows which I can move independently!!! Does anyone catfish me...?? NO!!!
    What do you have to do round here to get noticed??

    Search for the thread titled "Expose the Catfish" and you'll most likely find your answer. :wink:

    Weren’t we just talking about his guy!

    Ha, what’d I tell you? He’s everywhere. :joy:

    Such a creep!!! He added me like the day after I started posting in the forums.

    Idk if he was a catfish but there used to be a guy on here who called his "special" gals petal and flower. He usually only talked basketball with me, but I heard he was a creep and some cam girl blasted him on here once. It was an epic day.
    I miss days like that around here. :cry:

    I now have to go read the entire expose a catfish thread. I remember a few years ago there was one person who used the picture of a fitness model. I think he was lionheart and then had another name too. I do know who the sweatpants guy is.. thought he was a catfish and I wouldn't respond to messages. Glad I got the confirmation now.

    This is just so strange to me. There are so many people on here struggling with insecurities, and body issues and so on that it would seem to me to be a moot point to have to pretend to be someone else to get affections. The only reason I can see to pretend to be someone else here would be if malicious intent. That’s just awful.
