As for Kawai Jones, may I speculate?

His first name is James. So he used Kawai James for many years.
His surname is Jones. So he has decided to become Kawai Jones.

So his full name is James Jones.

Was our favorite PW member formerly a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers?
Did he play basketball for the Miami Heat some years ago?
Is he now playing baseball for the Texas Rangers?
Was he the author of the acclaimed novel From Here to Eternity?

James participates on this forum only during working hours (maybe it’s part of his job duties?). It’s suspicious that his name was changed at the beginning of the weekend. I still believe his account may have been hacked. And James will realize that only when he starts work on Monday morning.

I still think it's a joke. I found the post I mentioned above, by the way. Wouldn't it be highly improbable for user ppiioottrr to call James "Kawai Jones" and, just shortly later, for James being hacked and having his user name changed to... well, "Kawai Jones"?

Glad it gave you a chuckle 😁

Just looked that up. Good word: fruminous...

Who could that apply to recently?

I guess James is busy with the presentation of the VPC2, so Jones took its place on the forum.

Yes, I was surprised... I would bet the VPC2 would inaugurate the GrandFeel III.
