ah human nature....

Whole Foods Executive Used Alias
Using the pseudonym Rahodeb — a variation of Deborah, his wife’s name — Mr. Mackey typed out more than 1,100 entries on Yahoo Finance’s bulletin board over a seven-year period, championing his company’s stock and occasionally blasting a rival, Wild Oats Markets. The story was first disclosed on The Wall Street Journal’s Web site last night.

Responding to a posting on March 28, 2006, Rahodeb wrote: “OATS has lost their way and no longer has a sense of mission or even a well-thought-out theory of the business. They lack a viable business model that they can replicate. They are floundering around hoping to find a viable strategy that may stop their erosion. Problem is that they lack the time and the capital now.”

"“I like Mackey’s haircut. I think he looks cute!” Rahodeb wrote on April 28, 2000."

"..In comparison, Mackey looks like a model for Brooks Brothers!”

He's not the first, of course. A journalist for a political magazine got caught praising his own logic on these message boards.

We should do that here, only be open about it.

Weeks logic and wit again impresses me. What a guy. Reading Weeks' stuff is the number one reason I visit WW.

This was on NPR yesterday while I was driving home - apparently when he signed off the message board for good, he gave props to two other posters that had figured out who he was.

On a related note, Whole Foods has some great stuff, but their prices are ridiculously out of line for most items.

I try not to praise MSFT that much myself, and any "Ballmer" reference is removed from my profile but you never know. Some people are clever and might figure it out.

Not recommending the Zunes MP3 player was wise, too. That would have been a real give away.

I lurk at WebmasterWorld solely for the pleasure of reading posts by httpwebwitch. I'm such a fan, I have modeled my own alias (and life) after his. What a swell guy, handsome, intelligent, well-mannered, and very popular with the ladies, so I hear.
