Can't get you on the board to talk about sports or the election, but you just can't resist having a new poster to harass, huh?
Seriously, fuck off.
Since this is a topic, I'll give my two cents on it. As one who's posted on this board and various predecessors for 15+ years, and as one who has gotten to know 20+ posters on a personal level, I find all of this disappointing, but it is what it is. One poster, or perhaps a couple of posters, has made it his pathetic effort to torment people just for shits and giggles, attacking them personally (and not just in things he posted, but also in things he did off the board) and essentially being the sickest of fucks. I give Sean credit for kicking him off the board (and at least some of his aliases), but there's zero question that he remains on the board as a frequent, active poster. So yeah, I've decided that I really am pretty sick of dealing with it. Moreover, his bullshit has caused a number of excellent posters to similarly depart, so the good has stopped outweighing the bad.
So yeah, are there posters that are probably legit that I don't and won't trust unless and until I have some basis to believe they are who they say they are (or more specifically aren't someone else). Is that fair? Probably not, but it is also it what it is. Some of you don't care if some or all of these posters are Sloshy, and that's great for you...but the problem I have is that other than the posters I know, I don't trust anyone on here, and that's no fun for me and probably no fun for the rest of you...hence my significant decrease in posting.
But hey, at least Dale Berra's Nose is happy. Amirite?
So "Gideon," unless Sean tells me not to, I will probably wander in from time to time and will post whatever the fuck I want to. If you don't like it, ignore me or go ride your motorcycle through the Indonesian jungles while doing pushups (by the way, I was intrigued to find that someone who's never heard of Kim Kardashian can quote Alanis Morisette lyrics...intriguing to say the least).
And speaking of Sean, thanks again for all you've done to keep this board going the last 8 years. It's sincerely appreciated.
