    Maybe the duals are smart enough to recognize that their fan club is gone and things here have evolved? Nah, who am I kidding? Still, the number of scum who have either died or run off to TrollKingdom or wherever is encouraging, IMO.

    P.S. Hang around and post more often, willya?

    I would but I forgot my password the last time. I was actually going to start this thread when I caught wind of his... comeuppance.

    Oh, btw, which of your books do you recommend the most? I'm looking for a good read and I'm ashamed to say I haven't read any of your work.

    If you're a West Wing fan, I'll quote C.J. Cregg RE: her role in the Bartlet WH when Danny asks her what she's going to do after Bartlet is out of office: "Don't you think I realize I'm living the first line of my obituary?"

    The first line of my obituary (if I have one) will read "Margaret Wander Bonanno, perhaps best known for her Star Trek novel Strangers from the Sky (1987)..."

    I've written far more than Trek, but that's apparently the only thing I'm known for. These days I can't find an agent, an editor, or even get arrested (I'm considering the last). If you're genuinely curious, skim past the Trek stuff to the Stuff That Doesn't Sell as Well As Trek (because nothing else really does, does it?): https://www.amazon.com/s?k=margaret...x=Margaret Wander,aps,296&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_15

    Thanks for asking. :)

    Who gets harassed here? I don't see it happening but I could be missing it. What kind of harassment are you talking about?

    I don't remember that at all! Oy...

    I was genuinely worried about him losing his mind and doing something stupid. I was keeping an eye on him by other means.

    I don't remember that either. :marathon:

    I never cared for her, and called her a cunt on here on more than one occasion. She'd pull shit like PM'ing private info about posters and then use it for her own enjoyment. I had a FB page, and unless kept it pretty hard to find unless you were already a friend on there, or friend of a friend. So she took time to find it, and then tried to post some of it here. I think she tried to use her illness and health issues as a pity blanket and as an excuse for the crap she pulled.

    She wanted to be the center of any male attraction here, and if she felt that any female took that from her, she would try to make them leave the board.

    I remember you once said I was something like the creepiest creep that ever creeped other than Ted. :elflat: :lol: I don't remember what made you said that, but it was probably something pretty fucked that I posted.

    Damn. I always suspected that (which is why I never, to this day, post private information about my kids or their kids on FB, and blocked her and some of her minions whose RL names I knew - she didn't realize that a little bit of research she provided led me to the RL names of "Scorponok" and "Jamey Whistler").

    Why do people have to be like that? :(

    Strangers is very good. She's a real life pain in the balls but a good writer.

    That explains why she was so quick to White Knight for Ecc about the Meka thing.

    She outed my RL name based on some one-off review I left on Amazon in 2004, before I realized my name was even up there. And then said she was only looking up my Anna Yolei account because she wanted to troll my fanfic :wtf: I actually can't hold her to account on that in any good conscience because I was pulling similar shit in fandom at the time, but if I had any embarrassment about my fanfic, I certainly wouldn't have made it my damn username here of all places :lol:

    Ask @Pylades , it was his project. :borg: it was in 2006 and likely lost the the 2007 board erasure.

    The reason many people forgot is because I didn't feed the trolls and blow up the way 14th Doc did when Jamey trolled his RL name in a sig. And FTR, everyone on staff at the time repped the post. :borg:

    I'm pretty sure I read that book, the one that was printed, not the unaltered one you actually wrote. But I could be wrong here, didn't the printed book have a couple who lived on a kelp farm watch a Vulcan ship crash land and then help out the survivor/survivors or something like that? Oh yeah, the human female entered the crashed ship and realized it was alien?

    I remember some of that, that is one of the instances here I do remember her snooping around online to find out shit about posters on here. From what I also remember, she seemed to target certain posters more than others.

    Gawd, what a memory!
    Strangers from the Sky was all mine. It was Music of the Spheres that was morphed into PROBE, with only 7% of my work surviving. The original is still available for free if you email me: garamet@gmail.com.

    Ah.. got those mixed up.

    So, did I remember the basic premise? I probably read it when it came out in paperback... so roughly 30 some years ago?

    I'm sure Storm's friends hit on her, and he doesn't realize the irony.

    I'm pretty sure I got banned at some point for posting my chocolate starfish.

    :lol: Sorry to laugh, this place was so fucking ridiculous in the past. I hope I wasn't the one to Photoshop that. :unsure:

    She took it hard when the new ownership took over from Lanz and said that mods and admin would be held to a higher standard when it came that kind of bullshit.

    Behind the scenes she was one of the biggest instigators of the attempt to create a rival board (to try and force the new owners to back down) and started making up conspiracy stuff like Elwood was actually still running things behind Lanz and there was some secret cabal. It got pretty weird once Scorps rival board wasn’t getting the exodus hoped for. She was taking Briefing Room info and twisting it to encourage outrage/folks leaving.

    I felt bad for her situation but trying to break the board once it was no longer hers went too far. So she was dropped as an admin. After that she stopped posting except for illness updates.

    It sucks because this place meant a lot to her and I’m sad that she wouldn’t post here during what had to be trying times.

    i was not a bit sorry for her - and im a bleeding heart liberal. i feel sorry for everyone. but she made it difficult for anyone to truly like her. even er sychophants.
