After seeing this guy pop up multiple times over the past few months (including once or twice on KF), I decided he deserves his very own thread.
Meet John Alexander Gallin. John is an autistic, 35-year-old Red Cross volunteer living in London, Ontario, who has made a name for himself within the furry fandom for both his bizarre fetishes and his countless, incoherent attempts to roleplay with anyone he finds. John appears to have a transformation (TF) fetish, and has somehow combined that with an extreme hyperfixation for the Red Cross and charity work.
The result is one of the weirdest kinks I've ever seen:
Any mention of John or his various usernames often leads to countless furries corroborating that John has randomly contacted them in attempts to ERP with them. John appears to have been personally mass-messaging hundreds, if not thousands of random accounts, all of which either lead to him attempting his bizzare RPs or asking people to "join a charity".
As can be seen both above and below, conversations with John range from talking about his various fetishes, to incoherent rambling, to link-spamming NGO websites. John claims that he has "devoted himself entirely to charity" for his "entire adult life", and seems determined to convince others to do the same; when people brush off his ERPs, he usually resorts to asking them to join random charity organizations.
When asking random furries to drop everything and join a charity organization doesn't work, John also likes to ask people to, of all things, play chess. In fact, he is by far the most active member on "charitychess.com", having played nearly 450 games in the last month alone.
If that still doesn't work, John might inexplicably ask people to vote for conservative politicians.
And if that doesn't work, John might call you a faggot and tell you to kill yourself.
Unfortunately for John, he also likes to prompt ERPs with underage furries. And given he's not exactly discreet with his usual DMs, he doesn't even try to be subtle about grooming minors, leading to multiple callout threads (archive).
John's FurAffinity page (archive), which has recently been banned, is mostly filled with terribly-drawn art. According to others, the less shitty pieces have been requested from various artists who received no payment for their work. His Reddit page is filled almost completely with links to various charities posted on unrelated subs, which has also gotten him suspended from the platform. In fact, John has been banned from every major furry website I can find proof of his activity on, most likely due to complaints from his constant DMs and apparent pedophilia.
John makes no attempt to hide his real identity, using his real name for many of his accounts and posting pictures of himself. His own claims about himself are contradictory, ranging from claiming to be a "janitor and garbageman for charity" to owning a "very small charity empire". His LinkedIn page credits him for working at a variety of different organizations for multiple decades, all of which are given extremely vague descriptions.
Unfortunately, John's frequent spergouts are mostly reserved for private DMs, meaning they're harder to dig up outside of others sharing them. He remains active to this day on often-deleted alt accounts, still messaging random furries about charity ERP.
