do you think that you are approaching this without bias? i don't mean to come across strongly, but you seem to be dead set that he didn't cheat and are emotionally driven by it, and being emotionally driven can cause the biggest biases, so it's important to not get as heated as you're getting.

I don't have any strong opinion on whether he cheated or not. There have been convincing technical arguments for both sides. However, the circustantional evidence - i.e. his last post and his channel going down - have been interpreted in a strongly one-sided way. So I just provided an alternate interpretation based on my personal experience. Truth be told, your reasoning is definitely plausible and has precedents, but I've seen enough to know that my alternative is just as plausible.

But the true irony here is that those that call out my responses fail to realize that they've been given some of their own medicine, and by doing that they're calling out themselves.

But none of this matters in the long run. Perikles' channel is deleted, and he said he's okay with his scores removed. I might find that a negative outcome, but I have no issue with you or anyone else who approached the whole thing reasonably. I do, however, have issue with stuff like the post I linked above. Even if you turn out to be right, it still should not be acceptable to forget basic human decency. And while I may not be a saint myself, well, you know what they say - mote in my eye, beam in your own.

fair enough lol

No matter what you believe, you will always be able to arrange even the most nugatory details into a coherent tessellation. You can argue with the actual demeanour or its polar opposite and it still fits perfectly. That's not to say some of it couldn't be veracious all along, but that is really more happenstance than keen profiling.


This is a totally normal reply that someone being accused of cheating would say. It doesn't sound like weird copypasta written by a sociopath at all.

That settles it then. He didn't want to meet some dude in real life just because they live in the same country, so you could magically "prove he's legit", therefore he's guilty! When did we become Twin Galaxies? Meeting in real life doesn't mean anything. In fact, posts like these are creepy and weird. You share a mutual interest in a video game genre, and that's it. Why would he meet you in real life over this? It's such a shame he decided not to do this, can't imagine why. I'll lose sleep over this sad outcome.

Real talk though can someone explain to me why perikles writes like that, it has always been a bit spooky.
