Are you suggesting he is a Trust Fund Wikipedian? (Trust Fund Hippie ... Trustifarian ... Trustipedia ..?)
I suppose that is a new stereotype. Some how, I doubt it but I might be wrong. Seem a nice boy but not that well heeled.
Again, this is another case of where there really ought to be some reality checks built into their system. Is it an NPO or not? Is he a volunteer or not? (The answer is no, twice. He is a playing in an online game).
Legally, if this "Royal Navy Officer" is working 8 hours a day, and his record is up there for the whole world to see, then he is hardly "seeking and available for work".
They are encouraging each other that there is some overbearing importance to all this frenetic activity, it is obviously dangerously addictive to certain types of characters, what is the duty of care of the leadership to ensure individuals do not self-harm on the basis of their addiction?
If Richard's life was to be turned upside down because he was exposed, would the foundation care ... would "teh community" care ... would they help and support him like a proper family might? Of course not. Would God Jimbo ($75,000 a night) bail him out?
The whole of Richard's years worth of investment is just another revision in the history of the Piss Pee-dia to be oversighted if something goes wrong at the click of a button.
Terrible. The problem with these cults is, they hook people in with all the apparent trappings ... a facade of fraternal love, family, community etc ... but behind it all is nothing. Nothing.
A few make the bucks and get laid. All the rest slave.
We need a disclosure from the arbitrator himself and a comment from the leadership.
I'm the first to criticise an Arb when needed, but so far this one has done nothing (arbitration wise) to be criticised for.
I think the interview could have said a lot more, perhapa he did, he says he said more, and it was cut. I can beleive that happens. At the end of the day, the media will present the story it wants to, regardless of what is said. I think criticising him for spending 8 hours a day on his computer is unfair. He can hardly traul the streets all day looking for work, in fact he's more likely to find it on his computer than knocking on doors. It can't be much fun being unemployed at his age, he's obviously not stupid, in fact I should think it's bloody awful - probably a good thing for his mind that he has Wikipedia and the Navy Reserves to take his mind off it. He's obviously in the navy and has a photo to prove it. He's not very old and if a few years ago he advanced himself from reservist to officer for the sake of impressing girls and his ego - well he's certainly not the first kid to do that and won't be the last - I certainly told a few "exagerations" at 18 and 19 to make myself more alluring to the opposite sex and I expect most people here did too.
