    Someone will PM him. Head that shit off. Fucking ban his ass. Hitting on talkahuano is reason enough.

    I used to think so too. But that's not how it works, and your own example proves it. The board with 'more freedom' was the one that did hide Storm's actions. They're up in the open now, at this version of the board, not at the old board, although it would have been much more relevant then.

    Real talk, but an online friend who works in Hollywood once lost a fifth of her FB friends 12 years ago just for vauging about the guy in one sentence. One friend straight up told her it's bad for their career to stick around.

    She saw a few of these assholes at some award ceremony pre-shutdown, shortly after his conviction and they all ran away from her like ants :lol:

    .....did I mention she's one of the founders of Time's Up? :diacanu:

    He was always an asshole. At times entertaining, but an asshole. The Randian ultra libertarian schtick was ridiculous, and I'm almost kind of relieved he apparently wasn't serious about that :lol:

    Still shocking. I'm not really suprised (if you had asked me: "which ex poster has turned into a racist alt-right pundit" storm would have been pretty far up my list), but shocked nevertheless. It's really soo pathetic. Is that his actual day job now? The guy has a daughter, for fucks sake... Must be a teenager by now. What does she tell her friends her dad does for a living? Racist asshole troll on the internet? :(

    If I'm a teenager or a child (you guys can't seem to make up your mind), like you and others believe, then I fully expect the staff to reprimand any poster that harasses me. @We Are Borg should be number one on the ban list.

    You expect special treatment that you are not willing to allow for others?

    Nope, I would expect them to ban anyone who harasses anyone under the age of eighteen.

    I don't know. But, the post you quoted upthread (or maybe in another) in which ... someone listed all your faults, that was one of them. You didn't deny any of it. Just complained that someone listed them.

    I didn’t deny it because sometimes it’s better to just shut up and move on. That doesn’t mean I agree with all of it.

    That's the point. This person saw this behavior in you. You do not wish others to be allowed to do the same.

    I'm going to say something that'll probably get a lot of people's panties in a bunch, but Storm's harassing TKO was done with the compliance, if not encouragement, of Tamar Garish.

    Maybe TKO was young and foolish enough to think having him stalking her would make her one of the kewl kids. Maybe she was too scared to object. Maybe she went to Tamar - who was a kind of mentor - and said "Please make him stop!" And Tamar told her to "put on your Big Girl panties and suck it up. This is how we roll here."

    Tamar encouraged sociopathic behavior because it gave her giggle fits. Lord knows the poor woman had an awful life offline, but does that excuse it?

    Also, entirely possible, TKO was young enough to believe he was flirting and liked the attention without knowing the full extent of Storm's ... inexcusable behavior.

    A minor child should have never been allowed to remain a member here. I may be wrong, but something tells me she was 18 when she joined, but just barely. I honestly don't remember.

    IIRC, she was either 17 or 18 when she joined. :shrug:

    What did happen with storm and tko? I vaguely remember creepy comments by a number of posters, but kind of wrote it off as a combination of her being a young girl among a bunch of old men and her being a young girl among a bunch of nerds... But you guys sound like there was way more than that?

    I keep hearing/being reminded of these stories, and I gotta ask....did any woman have a good time with Tamar?

    Okay, did any cisgener woman?
    I know she was kind to Nova.

    I've avoided unloading all these years for Nova's sake, but...goddamn....

    I've long suspected that if you scratch a Randite you'll find a fascist underneath.
    It really is disappointing to find out that someone has lived down to your worst expectations.

    Tamar wanted to be Queen of All She Surveyed, and a forum full of groveling boy-nerds suited her just fine. She'd dog any woman here. Hell, she went after T'Bonz. And only a fool messes with T'Bonz.

    She and I got off to a rocky start and never recovered. Of course, I just put that down to me being very liberal and she ... liked being conservative.

    When I was in Maine, you had the courtesy to decline my offer of having dinner by saying you, regretfully, had other plans. Tamar, as well as I thought I knew her, totally ghosted me until she knew I was back home. :(

    I gotta be honest. I do not understand conservative women. I mean, sure, be religious if that's who you are, but ... anti-social safety net? anti-environment? where are your children supposed to live?

    Yes, I know, this post is going to get me a lot of "bad" smileys. But, for real. I truly do not understand them.
