i skimmed through that, but missed ... some, aparenttly.
Damn... so what I thought and suspected was pretty dead on then.
That's rather vindictive and petty. But I also remember Lanz taking some time off and she mucked the board up with some shit she decided to pull.
I know she had lots of health issues, but that doesn't excuse what she did and tried to do to posters.
I see how it is...”nah we are just work friends.”
It should be noted that there was a reason she felt the board was hers, in the early years she probably put in as much time as anyone making sure the board ran. She was always on so always moderating. She was pretty much the face of the admin. Maybe not T’Bonz level but pretty close.
While she wasn’t perfect and things didn’t end well she was a pivotal figure for the first decade.
Has anyone ever met Cassandra/Aurora IRL?
She was always one of the more mysterious characters here.
El Chup had some strange obsession with her in the early days IIRC.
Oh wait! I remember this one! She had a knack for showing up in places all over the world right before something huge happened there. Did I get it right?
I don't even remember her being on staff until Elwood took over the board. She might have been, I just don't recall.
You got it exactly right. A handful of fans said they'd wished mine had been the story instead of "Carbon Creek" or even First Contact.
Ah, if only, if only...
You’re book was supposed to be Carbon Creek or First Contact?
I struggle with this a lot, as technical admin it was sort of impossible to not know people outside of the board. I’ve worked with a fair number of the owners in that capacity, but I’ve also met a number of people from the board or worked with them in a professional capacity, I still count many of them as friends.
What I can say is that for the duration that I was a staff member, I wouldn’t say that any of the owners were racist in any way. Wordforge has always struggled though in balancing free speech vs decency, often times with free speech prevailing over decency. But I think we have to be careful viewing Wordforge of the past through the current cultural lens, at the time it was not the case that what you allowed is what you endorsed, so to apply that retroactively is unfair.
I was messaging her about this thread, and that mics up with her recollection as well.
I don’t know why, but for some reason in my mind he is a young, wealthy fella from Sweden.
No, the novels are completely separate from the movie/TV franchise. In fact, until the day he died GR claimed they weren't "canon" (despite getting a chunk of the revenue from them - probably more than the writers).
I just got fan mail saying "your story was better." That and a Metrocard will get you on the subway in NY.
It wasn't even great porn. Definitely not HD...
I knew she thought the board was hers.
But it's mine.
80% of the funny in this joint?
*Points at self with thumbs*
The other 20%?
10 is Fisherman's Worf, and Matt.
10 is divvied up to self-ownage by various goofballs.
Lighten the fuck up.
Tamar always creeped me out with her constant and not so subtle reminders that she knew all sorts of people’s personal information and liked holding it over our heads
Take it back, I'm not funny. 100% of my posts are 110% serious.
I guess I wasn't a bright enough pip on her radar screen to warrant that kind of attention. Just another list I'm not on...
I've had this one for *checks watch* nearly two years now. Given it was a name change inspired by a show that went off the rails Roseanne season 9 style, I considered changing it back to Anna. Maybe I'll go by Anna X next time to troll the anti-black folks here.
So I guess the thing is to necro all the old racism from this guy because "woot" check out what we used to do. Wasn't it a hoot when we used to be all racist and shit.
So way back when WF actually embraced stormfront trolling? Glad you cleaned that shit up, kinduv. Hi @Marso and @TheLonelySquire .
I guess boredom works for getting rid of the bigger trolls in the stormfront category.
only goes back to 2009 as far as I can tell and he was less productive in the latter years. Didn't read every post but nothing really outragous (to this degree) in the threads he started during that time
So i missed a lot of drama during the last decade...
I feel the same way. Not that I missed the drama with stormfront people elsewhere.
I made a list!
What are you on about?
Oh, is it a "caption this", contest?
"The conviction of James Fields is a tragedy of justice!".
"Murdering a holocaust survivor is poetic justice! It's karma!".
"White women who sleep with black men are coal burners!".
“Should you find yourself in a nice shopping mall, high-end store, and you see a black person, kinda mosey over to the security guard and say, ‘I think I saw that lady put something in her purse.'”
Oh, that's our Storm, hohoho!!
I haven't heard this one before. What does that even mean "coal burners"?
It's new to me too.
I just went through the hatewatch articles linked in the op.
