Ryan Postlethwaite is a full-time chav and part-time Wikipedia admin. He's earned "most hated status" from the Wikipedia Review, not for outrageous acts of admin abuse, but for daring to prove that you can edit TOW and still have a life. Sadly as Wikipedia is a forsaken land ruled by aspies and bitter retirees, being anything remotely close to an alpha male makes you a celebrity. Thus a uniquely unqualified twenty-something alcoholic became an admin with ease.
To this day, Ryan still has groupies such as Sceptre fawning on his talk page and bitches like Phaedriel and Persian Poet Gal begging for a barnstar. It is also rumored that he is the on-again, off-again boytoy of the notorious cougar and fellow mod Alison.
Although he is quick to deny editing under the influence, Ryan is actually Wikipedia's equivalent of the drunken live-in boyfriend your mom had when you were growing up. As a result Ryan's incessant (only when he's pissed) abuse towards other Wikipedians, his user page has been vandalized innumerable times.
