How do we expect to catch the guy if we cant even spell his frigging name correct? Its been this way for years!

BTW 6'4"-6'6" 140lbs? He definitely needs to bulk.

Shit, he could hide right in front of you.

Hey we are trying to translate a series of curvey lines and dots that can stand for several letters at a time lol it can be spelled either way. I think he did tried to bulk, but did it wrong and thats why he's dying of liver failure!

I think the variation comes from the imprecise transliteration from arabic into the latin alphabet. its the same with chinese
Mao Zedong vs. Mao Tse-tung
The Ch'in dynasty vs. The Qin dynasty
the list goes on...
