Some days I still think Ethan is a police officer.
In the end, this cannot be proven either way unless he comes out.
However, I'm no longer losing sleep over it. Debating him doesn't make me unsafe regarding police exposure anymore than participating on GC itself does.
And even if he were a police officer, his behavior overall has been good. Better even than that of many "pro" posters. That, not his positions, are what make him not be a troll.
