I.. am Ikey

Post by m.keane » Fri Sep 09, 2011 5:21 pm

Bout time I revealed my identity.
I am Ikey Doherty; I'm guessing some of you realised that already.
I had no choice but to mess up my employment with Linux MInt as I was
being extorted by my ex gf/landlord. I owe it here to say a massive apology
to Clemenet Lefebvre. Nobody else would give someone such a fine chance as he did,
yet I Had no choice but to **** up my job to protect Linux Mint from a parasitical person.

I hope you can all understand my decision, I'm sorry for all that I've put you through.

Kind Regards,
Ikey Doherty

I felt there must be some underlying reason for what happened. The way you departed was completely uncharacteristic for you. Welcome back Ikey.

Much empathy sir!! I once got 'stalked'. Took me 3 years and 4 identity changes to break free! :(

Take a vow of celebacy for a while, and come back to those who care. Welcome back.

Whether or not you "work for Mint," you are a big part of it! Your contributions to the distro and to its community (here on the forums and elsewhere) is a big part of the reason for Mint's success, and for the success of it's users.

Welcome back! And thanks for all you've done already, and I know you'll continue to do for as long as you're able. It's an honor just to know you'll read this!

As someone new to Linux and LMDE. I often refer to your old theads and posts to help me out when I get in trouble (often) :lol:

I just today followed your tutorial in adding Emerald to my LMDE install.
Thanks for that.
Looking forward to more. :wink:

Its my main distro. I am new to Linux, but tried a lot of differnt distros. Always come back to LMDE. It was a little bit of a stuggle at first, but with all the help from the folks on this forum. I feel quite comfortable with it now. Running one partition tracking "testing" and another tracking "SID". Needless to say I learn a lot tracking SID. :lol:

although we have never crossed paths, i have seen your contribution to the forums scattered across the boards,

Welcome Home

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

To be honest, I didn't realise this before reading this topic. It's not until now that I see nearly half of m.keane's 23 posts contains the word 'Ikey'.
But now I'm restarting the X server to get a Wine program working. Bye.

Welcome back Ikey. I could easily go into allot on the subject of parasites, but I'll just say be careful they usually live in the environment you are drawn to, so re-infection by a mutated and therefore not easily recognizable replica is possible.

Again - good to see you.
