Sebastian was a Swedish Wings fan who called it as he saw it. The problem was that he saw it through the eyes of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. The glass was not only half-empty, it was ready to fall off the table, shatter into a million pieces, and would probably cut one of the Wings and lacerate something that would keep them out 3-5 months.
I'm sad that I missed the saga of Mindfly. I keep seeing his name everywhere but I have no idea who he is.
He had a subtle sense of humour, but often it didn't go over well. He wasn't politically correct, nor did he respect some things that most people respect even if they don't participate, like religion. He could go off base and off target, but he never meant it badly.
I got to know him because he sent me a PM once to make sure I had not taken a barb the wrong way. I had laughed hysterically. I'm one of those people who will look at the humour and laugh, even if I am the butt of the joke. He had thought so when he typed it, but wanted to make sure.
We became friends. He knew his humour wasn't always well-received.
He would get so much crap from people. When he made a prediction, people would tell him to get off the boards or shut up or whatever. He always took it in stride. It was part of the game to him.
I'm a hamster buff, and Mindfly was like having a hamster. You put him in the ball and let him run around and laugh when he runs into something, and laugh harder when he keeps banging into the same thing over and over again. Then you give him some treats and pet him.
He will be missed, in his own way.
