Okay, it's time.

Election season causes the forum to hemorrhage members

I joined after the '04
quit for the '08 season but came back
quit for the '12 seasons and didn't come back until after '16

Why be here at all? Because FB is endless blather of gossip and 99% fake news. Twitter is a SJW vs trump flamewar. Polarization is everywhere, but here, people actually post the truth, and hey, go where everyone knows your name.

We're becoming like Napoleon's Army. I miss a lot of people.
GEEZER
CHRISISALL
CANTTAKESKY
FREMDFIRMA
ANTHONYT
RIONAEIRE
KWICKO
STORYMARK
JONGSSTRAW
NEWOLDBROWNCOAT
MAL4PREZ
And sure,
PIRATENEWS
:)
I think I'll miss you least of all, WHOZIT.
(oh wait, there was KANEMAN)
I tease but serious, y'all come back now, y'hear?

Add some names...

Everyone loves a whozit.

Future Mrs Fillion, HKCavalier, OldEnglandDry, DeadLockVictim, TheSomnambulist, BDN, AntiMason, MincingBeast & How canya forget simple named folk like Casual, Citizen, Hero? Rap is still here, and the Mite, Riverlove. River 6213 and other Rivers? Oppyh, Wulfenstar, Kirkules, Leeloo some #. Shadow Cpt. Out to the black, Anonymouse, RiverDancer, PhoenixRose, BlueSunCompanyMan, Skywalken, Yinyang, Pizmo, Jameron,

Putting all these people together leads to a bloodbath, you sure about this?

How about a shout out to our favorite sockpuppets? Rue, she a sockpuppet? Tempted to say TheRightStuff. The classic ShadowFLy. & Tag, by extension. Was Spelling Fairy ever an actual thing?

A lot of people quit rwed without quitting fireflyfans.

Edit: Any of these left?

Everyone leaves once in a while, and then they come back.

I was just snarking WHOZIT with an Earth Girls Are Easy reference to a Wizard of Oz reference. Wiploc is Jim Carrey, and that's waht Geena Davis says to him.

I'd like to see some of these people back.

o2tb was, um, yeah. that. right. what G said.

Geezer, CTS, CIA, Kwicko, Riona, SM, HK, Anthony, Frem, NOB, etc. all solid regular posters that made this forum alive.

I learned a lot from PN, Antimason,

I don't remember everyone, and some yes but not so clearly. I know MB was one of the lurk and snark members. I remember his comment, when PN said, as usual "Jews Jews Jews!" Mince said "Gay Marry Me, Pirate News." Oh, and his pirate sockpuppets.

BSCM I think probably belongs in the first category, along with PR SW YY Pizmo, but a lot of stuff is jumbled in my head, like people who had the same avatar or just memory loss due to too much 5-htp.

All recorded back there, 50,000 people. We could pull em all back in.

I remember Shadowfly, and all that came with that. I don't know who was forsaken. I think they were users cursed by TRS, who was CIA, and they adopted the banner but I wasn't among them.

I'm going to second that Spelling Fairy was Kwicko.

Looks like you were still here in March 2012 when I tried logging in for the 10th Anniversary, but could not find the site for a few months - I had conjured it was gone. I lost a few years after that, assuming FFF.net was still vanished. Not sure when I found it was back/still up.

I left in 2013 after a couple of people were very rude to me about my sisters death which had just happened. Having spent a couple years in treatment, a year in treatment denial, 11 days locked in a hospital, 70 hours standing arguing in front of a death panel which argued that because my sister was born physically disabled she didn't have a high enough quality of live, even though she was a senior director at a VA hospital, as in veterans, not virginia, and then two weeks by her deathbed, I wasn't in great shape, and the usual trolls tore into me, and I left.

Election season is always hell here, it's over, let's move on and deal with other topics than variations on hate.

I know that a lot of the regular crew left after a fairly major fight, and I sort of know why, so it's not likely they're coming back. Some might.

It wasn't here at that time, at least according to the internet at that time. Or the ISP I was on (not my own).

There was a fight in 2015? What about?

Circular firing squad.

Started in '13, continued into '14 but by '15 the damage was done. You were there, you just didn't see it, because you were off on the right.

This happens in any revolutionary group: Someone among us is not a true rebel, because they disagree on some issue (everyone gang up.) Yay. We expelled that phoney, Everyone here is a hero, except for that one of us who is not a true revolutionary... repeat.

While the right attacked the left, the left attacked the center, and pretty much hollowed out the middle of the rwed spectrum. From March of '13 through the end of '14, one person after another became the target of pointless personal attacks.

All that was left at the end was people on the right who were always a target, so it was never personal, and people on the left who were never a target.

I don't remember anything between 2012 to 2017. Here or in the Real real world.
