    Note: The poster this relates to hasn't logged in here for close to a decade, and his name is well known already (revealed by himself in posting his work here) so this isn't revealing anything knew other than how far he's fallen down the rabbit hole. To stay within the rules however references to his name have been replaced in this quoted version of the article.

    Read this when it was first published in 2019. I was appalled when I saw that it was all true.

    We should have known something was amiss back when he was openly soliciting explicit photos from underage posters. :(

    Fuck. That’s sad. :(

    I feel bad for the guy.

    Also puts some of the ‘harmless trolling’ on here in a different light.

    He's not the only one of WF's so-called libertarians who are in the tank for Trump on Facebook (and Twitter). :jayzus:

    This is both surprising, and at the same time, not at all. Like, on the one hand, I would have figured him to be the last person to actually believe their own trolling, but on the other hand, as someone with an active published persona outside the board who got sucked into Trumpitude, doesn't surprise me at all that he'd go further than that.

    Being reminded of the often-proven fact that trolling is often what someone really thinks that they feel comfortable saying in anonymity.

    Interesting.

    Also, you missed one name replacement in the article. As if we couldn't figure it out anyway. Better break out the banhammer. :bergman::storm:

    I read this a couple weeks ago and I couldn't even believe it. Thought about posting it here but thought I'd fall afoul of the personal info rule.

    Pretty sad all around.

    according to the dates in the article, he was full-bore at least as early as 2014 so Trump didn't flip him, he completed him.

    Also, far be it from me to say "I told you so" on Chup's behalf because fuck him, but he called this place out on its disgusting double standards back in 2006. Thread's probably lost to time now, but he seemed to call out the board for laughing at Tasvir, then punishing @Lt. Mewa for defending himself against that chump.

    As far as I'm concerned, the whole staff except @Aurora was in on it. They couldn't not know with as hard as they defended him. :borg:
