Big Joe has passed away - 1 year ago

Postby mrneddles » February 14th 2012, 10:17am

I hear you, but have you seen pictures of him? Sadly, he doesn't look like he can do much else. I give him a pass.

hmm, family or anything else?? I may be stretching here but seriously 28k? I must say the guy is a nice guy no doubt about it, seems he's very genuine as well. That said, anything else perhaps other than watch websites for that much time? Wowza.

What about Troutstroker I think he was pushing well above 32000. Of course most of the posts are the Uber deals he finds and posts links to. I think he actually lives on the Net no actual life beyond that.

The thing about BigJoe is that while it's easy to bemoan his physical problems, age, or whatnot, the fact is that the WG owners and mods really insulted the guy in a way worse than I've ever seen, yet he comes back for more.

He obviously can't give up WG the way the other members there can't - without it, where would people like him find out what $100 Chinese watch looks best with a soiled ball cap?

28k is nothing, compare to this guy on a Rolex forum I once saw. He had over 65,000. But sadly he passed away last yr.
I've never felt like I truly belonged here and I believe it's time I move on.

He probably has more than the 28k listed. Don't forget, over in geekland, the posts on non-watch subjects don't count!!

Ive seen pics of WG like the Chief and George the Informer (very revealing) at WGGT but never BJ. Would like to see what he looks like if you or anyone has his pic.

I don't see the issue. With the availability of the internet on practically every device we own, posting on forums isn't exactly a difficult task nor is it all that mind blowing.
I'm not a big forum user, but I can see how easy this could have happened. Especially with someone who's disabled or retired.

From what I read there he was, like the Big Joe of Rolex forums.
