    I too cannot see anything important on his FB page (since i went too far left I suppose) but still :(



    Also...did this thread just help me put together a Facebook name with a WF name? Hmmm.

    I never saw eye to eye with the listkeeper and wasn't in the circle to get the FB invite but this is always pretty shitty news. RIP man.

    Do we know how he went out? Old age, the big C, car accident, the 'rona?

    fuck... he'd just crossed through my mind the other day.

    Bit of both, he was a twat, but of a good sort. Saddened to hear of his passing.

    I remember that Uncle Albert's nickname for him was "Nazi file clerk", and I was always jealous I didn't think of it.

    That insult wouldn't work today.
    Today's fascist kiddies don't want to be file clerks, they all want to drop the zyklon-b right into the showers.

    To be honest, BearTM was a bit of a grump, but he was never a big asshole. Back in the IRC chatroom days, he'd kick me a lot for fun, but I probably deserved it. It is a terrible shame that he passed, and I hope his family is doing OK.

    He'll be back after the election is settled, how ever long that takes, either to gloat if His Boy Donnie "wins," or to pretend he never supported Donnie in the first place.

    Remember how the Usual Suspects behaved post-Iraq? Same Shit, Different Decade.

    Was he actually a bear? In the large dangerous animal sense? Or the hairy, chubby gay man sense?

    Or did he just have a burning desire to trademark either of the above? Or both?

    The answers to these things will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

    He (or maybe Tamar) posted a photo here once. Big guy. Looked a little like John C. Reilly.

    There was a picture here with me, Bear, and Muad at a Civil War reenactment a while ago. Should I be worried? :unsure:

    No need. I found the thread and the link goes to a picture of Kirk about to blast that Gorn with his home made bamboo cannon for some reason. Curse Lifted! :yes2: Although now I kinda know how my sister felt when I taped over part of her band recital with the Phoebe Cates boob scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. :(

    IIRC, the FB group was created shortly before Anc bought the board. I think I asked Bear about it once but he said something about being a preacher and avoiding the place for his mental health.

    I...have thoughts on that, but since he wasn't a Sokar-level cunt, I'll bite my tongue on that.

    The old days are a mixed bag for me being neither white or male, but I do miss a lotta folks. People like @MoulinRouge @Linda R. @MiniBorg and @KamelReds among others.
