Edit (06-12-2018): So this user has been a problem in the past and discussing them has spanned several years and several threads, so I've decided to merge them all here and give a little bit of background, so people can hopefully avoid this person if they come across them.

if the conversation seems confusing, take a look at the dates, since this thread is now a compilation of several other threads, some of which are from the private staff area. i've responded to this whole situation in a post at the end of this thread that you can find here:

https://squattheplanet.com/threads/user-its-me-ryan-aka-ryan-nash-for-staff-harassment.35236/page-2#post-256081


----------------------------------

so 'crkt' aka ryan nash, tried to friend me on facebook today, and i noticed that he was living in new orleans now (it was on his FB profile). today i noticed the account @Its Me Ryan and checked his details, and yeah, it's definitely him ([email protected]).

so, my beef with ryan is getting pretty old now, and goes back to before widerstand tried to fuck me over back in 2010. i've banned ryan several times for posting outright lies about me supposedly beating my girlfriend and other such nonsense.

of course it's not too difficult to ban him, but it's also not too difficult to create another account at a different ip address, so on one hand maybe it's not worth the effort.

but on the other hand, i'm considering posting something about him in the shady people area, because he's outright lied about a bunch of things throughout the time i knew him, and also disclosed a lot of things to some of my friends that i told him in confidence. this makes me think that i should warn people about possibly staying with him, since he's sketch as fuck, and really shouldn't be trusted.

on top of this he claims to be an experienced train rider, but every piece of info i ever got from him was highly suspect, and never seemed to be right. also, the few times we traveled together, all he did was constantly complain about everything the whole time, like he'd never had to walk 5 miles before... maybe that's irrelevant, but these are all just things i'm remembering about him.

but again, maybe i'm letting my personal feelings get in the way of making a rational judgement. what do you think?

I deleted myself
When I run into people like that I just find my way away from them.

I wouldn't friend him, pay attention to him or think about him.

People like that have a screw loose and are probably doing that shit to other people, so if you stay off his radar he can go disrupt somebody else's life.

No easy answer, but fuck that guy.

This is a tough one. I don't think the things you listed (lying about riding experience, divulging secrets, complaining a lot) would merit a Shady People thread. It definitely makes him a shitty person but it's not on par with someone stealing your gear and throwing you off a train. I don't know the whole story though so I would say if you think he poses a serious risk to other travelers, you should take action. If it's just an issue of personal beef, let it slide.

It sounds like he has already shown you his true character. Unless he sent you an email along with that friend request, in which he is apologising and saying how he was an ass-hole and has changed yadda yadda, I'd ignore him. And even then I'd be sceptical.

As far as STP is concerned I think the over all thing here is to minimise any issues the public will witness, because really what would be the point. I don't think you would stand to gain anything if a bitch fest started, but you could lose face.

I'd say best practice is to just ignore the FB request, not deny it so he always sees it as pending. Just encase he's a lose canon and uses you denying him as a reason to act out again.

I'd also sit on his new account and watch it closely and the second he gets out of hand ban him then. As far as the untrustworthy thing, now seems like a bad time. I mean why wait until he signs up to start shit. Maybe wait to see how he acts on here and if he starts shit then ban him and write the report.

Again I'm always from the school of though where avoiding unnecessary scenes is a good thing. It feels like one of those situations where there is nothing to gain and only something to lose, so in short not worth it.

PS: I get the 5 mile thing

yeah, you're all right. just ignoring it is probably the best way to go. i'm glad i took a minute to post this instead of staying all worked up and causing an unnecessary shit storm, since like ya'll said, there's really not much to gain from it.

i definitely agree that sometimes it's far more effective to ignore someone than it is to call someone out on their shit. when this stuff comes up i just get a little riled, ya know?

well i appreciate folks talking me off that ledge :p

@Staff just a little background here, i've known ryan for like... almost 18 years. we used to be friends up until around 2008 or so, where i'm fairly convinced he lost his fucking mind at some point and i stopped associating myself with him, especially after he accused me of being abusive to my gf (he barely met her more than a few times after we broke up) and a bunch of other bizarre shit that came out of left field and wasn't really triggered by anything i did (that im aware of). it's weird, he just went fucking nuts in the span of like a year or so, i dunno if he's skitzo or what.

but a while back he created that account after i banned his first account @iamcrkt when he went on a tirade about what a horrible person i am (again, just kinda making stuff up out of thin air). so anyways, i let it slide since i just didn't want to deal with it and he said he was sorry for all the things he posted earlier (now that i think about it i think i made a post in this section debating whether i should put him in the untrustworthy) and claimed he just wanted to help travelers now (he lives in nola now apparently).

anyways, my point is that staff should keep an eye out from this guy cause he seriously has a screw loose and since i gave him a warning for that thread, i wouldn't be surprised if he blew the fuck up.

i got the same impression when i went through his past posts. im not sure if its him or another user (i couldnt find the post but i just skimmed his history so maybe i missed it) where they made a pretty similar comment something along the lines of "dont come to my city and fuck it up or ill fuck you up" and it was about nola.

but yea i had my eye on that comment. usually when somebody has no profile filled out, and no avatar picture and has been a member for 4 years i try to keep a eye on when the crazy is about to come out. sounds like it might be soon with this dude.

Hi! My name is Ryan. I was banned from this site previously because Matt Derrick decided he didn't enjoy being called out as being a sexual predator. Guess what y'all? HE'S A SEXUAL PREDATOR.

He tried to convince a 16 year old girl to run away from home TO HAVE SEX WITH HER. Guess what? That 16 year old girl was another user posing as a 16 year old girl.

Matt Derrick is a sexual predator and should be treated as such. I'm sure this will result in my being banned once again but I don't really care.

Also, if you come to NOLA just to drink and fuck shit up then I'll make your visit a living hell.

Yeesh. Sounds like an asshole. I guess we can consider the hornet's nest officially kicked.

Oh here we go again. First of all, you're stirring up a shit pot that's over a decade old. One that we've all been over and know that your accusations are baseless. Veeeery few people on here are going to have a clue as to what you're talking nor are they going to have the insight to know how drastically unstable and emotionally underdeveloped you are.

Get over it already. We don't need to rehash this all over again.

Yikes. Definitely sounds like a wingnut to me and looks like he should be banned again.

That said, I think we should have @Matt Derrick issue the ban and post the Den of the Banned thread with an explanation as to his history with this person. Normally I'd say the staff involved in a conflict should stay out of it to avoid accusations of bias but in this case where there's a lot of history to the issue and dozens of people who can vouch for Matt, I think it's OK.
