    sorry for bringing up old wounds, with context yes it seems like someone was an arsehole to you which seemed par for the course with old ETS. If the above is you, I’ll check out some of your books on kindle!


    FWIW, when TR first showed up as an anonymous pern on this board, the Admins didn’t believe it was him, either (especially since he was asking people to write hate mail to John Malm). It’s totally valid for Admins to question user identity until further verification, and the same goes for online accusers; that being said, that does not = automatically discounting a victim’s accusation.

    But, yeah, it was always easy to catfish, still is. Probably why so many don’t fully “trust” online communication. Rightfully so.

    There are some tweets going around that Cory Booker sexually assaulted a man in a bathroom stall in 2014. Anyone else hear about this?

    Never heard that one.

    But I hate the stuff about Keith Ellison. His ex appears to have a valid domestic assault complaint, complete with videos, photos, and medical reports. Yet, even N.O.W. backed off from demanding an investigation. I don’t like hypocrisy. Like Hillary Clinton stating the other day, in an interview, that Bill shouldn’t have resigned because Monica was 22 and it was a consensual relationship, then Hillary sites Trump and multiple accusations as being some kind of valid counterpoint. Except Monica was an INTERN and Bill was THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, which is like the DEFINITIVE form of lack of ability to have a truly consensual relationship and, therefore, sexual harassment. And there is still a woman who insists that she was raped by Bill Clinton. Then Hillary’s Twitter feed is full of Kavanaugh.

    I GET that Hillary can’t manage to throw Bill under the bus and she’s stood by him since his first Presidential campaign, calling Bill’s accusers names etc. But at this point, now that we KNOW the truth, and Bill was found guilty of perjury, Hillary would be FAR better off answering that question in a more honest-yet-evasive way, e.g. “Look, we are talking about my husband and I can’t be objective, here; so, I’m going to pass on that question.” Instead, she answers in a way that makes her look like she dove off the #TimesUp bus head-first at 80mph, and now needs to STFU.

    i think any progressive movement is hard to address deal with when looking backward especially when dealing qith civil rights we would hope as a species we have become more civilized although there are time when i wonder thier are people alive today that couldn't drink from the same water fountain or eat at the same lunch counter in some instances kind of need to be grandfathered in. it's more of an issue did thier actions change. did they admit they fucked up and changed their behavior. if we go far enough back you will find most people have done stupid things they regret. so in some cases like Cosby they did not case is still not clear i will be glad when quantum computing has been around for a while and humans not longer have the burden of binary thought. was reading a biography of zeppelin and the shit they did and page with today's me too movement would have definitely be frowned upon. i guess judge all think in what you believe is the best context and perspective. try not to morally judge or place yourself above other and we can always do better. in 90% of our actions.

    Heh, I remember that. It wasn't really that we didn't believe it was Trent, so much as we discovered who it was later on, and that our first reaction to those initial posts was to edit them and remove personally identifying information. A few posts later, and I decided to look into who this troublemaker was, and saw they had IP addresses in New Orleans and Los Angeles. It very quickly became a poorly kept secret, but it wasn't really public knowledge until one of our regulars published a story mentioning that in May. Ironically, I can't find the original public article, instead I'm seeing a lot of Consequence of Sound and Alternative Nation, as well as Spin. Great. (Yes, I'm still sore over that public disclosure.)

    This was the original blog post that got picked up by everyone and Quantum550's mom. Notice the ETS user isn't identified as the author anymore.

    Hey, wasn't he also in a Music thread - I think Quake or something - (before the Malm hate mail requests) calling Chris Vrenna "The Musical Janitor?" ("That is what is called a 'rip-off'). I seem to remember that and the "Lab Coat" explanation thing happening before the Malm thing, at which time nobody knew who "he" really was. I just remember that it was funny going back to those threads AFTER everybody knew who he was, with you guys going something like "hey, leave Chris Vrenna alone," heh, because of course the first instinct is to think this is a total troll. But, yeah, I don't blame you for being disappointed that his ID was outed; it was much more fun for, like, what, 15 years?, he could hang out here totally anonymously except for us knowing who he was. You all - and we all - honored that anonymity.

    That's a good example where "anonymous" means comfort and safety for someone, rather than being constantly harassed (like in the "other" forum - cough).

    "Hmmm....what could I do that would be so outrageous, so out of character that it would generate 5 pages of search results?

    I know!!! I'll be nice!"

    The man's a genius. No, seriously.

    I think this user is saying that Reznor purposely told someone to put his penis in their mouth in order to generate publicity. But he did that as under the guise of anonymity so we know that’s not true. The ets user who ousted him is the one who generated the story.

    we’re off topic now.

    They say the trolls always win and this proves it:

    He's obviously a mere shell of the freak he used to be.

    If we ignore the drift, then it won’t really be drift, right? (High-five)

    Doesn't take a thermometer to know that my blood is 212F right now.

    Dr. Ford continues to receive threats in wake of Kavanaugh allegations

    She's had to move four times, hire private security, and has been unable to return to work. But no, ask me, I fucking dare you, ask me why women don't come forward.
