I didn't see my personal favorite:
RTFT - Read The (Fine) Thread.
There's another meaning to RKBA....this is a group, similar to the viking kitties. They come in and pave over the dead troll, on dead troll threads. They are also responsible for the original UNDEAD THREAD THREAD and those that have followed.
Excellent, thanks for the information.
I would like to add the following for next years edition.
Mediacrat - Leftwing editorialists who pose as neutral journalists. They are anti America and especially Anti Bush.
Should by synonymous with:
Soccer, you missed what was, IMO, the absolute funniest thread ever.
My neighbor's dog brought home a human skull, what
Mark is my brother. Believe me, he did plenty.
The new FR lexicon and a demonstration of a ping in one!
That was a funny thread. :-)
Since I found this site (can't even remember now how I did, think I searched for conservative websites and got lucky),
-Got chastised, deservedly so, for being a newbie and posting threads inanely. After about three silly "vanities", I got myself in check....:)
-Discovered a place where even when fellow FReepers may disagree with my opinions, I can speak my mind, and express my thoughts That's invaluable to me.
- Found the fine folks at the "Canteen", 68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub and Co., who are the heart and soul of this board. They have always been welcoming and supportive.
-Lost my dear daddy. This place was a sanctuary for me during his last days, and Trussell and her prayer warriors helped me get through the worst time of my life.
-I met the love of my life on this website.
-I lost the love of my life during my time here. But realized that life goes on.
-Have had some great "girl talks", lots of encouragement, and sharing.
-And most importantly, became a Grandma! My little Ava Malia is the light of my life, and becoming more beautiful everyday.
God Bless all my FReeper FRiends!
I was the 4th but someone broke the chain.
I'm glad it was a false alarm. With that being the case, that was one of the funniest threads ever! I'm crying over here!
(Can I borrow your towel for a moment?)
Ahh, yes ... the old 'Ash Alert'! Another disruptor of the time was Schopenhauer. Fondly referred to as Schope the Dope or Schope on a Rope. He was a real piece of work, but provided hours of entertainment.
No way would I do that to her. Her post was reasonable and she got hammered for it. I just was proud to have found it, and I wanted to show that anyone who doubted the way she described it that she was absolutely right. Back into the void of lore it goes.
Am I logged on????
Isn't the Tourist Guy part of Freeper lore?
Re BiBi: THUD!
Give me the history/lore on him.
Hence the new tagline....grin
Frankly, the way you've handled the whole thing gives me a lot more respect for you. Thanks for making everyone's day, Brytani.
My neighbor's dog brought home a human skull, what - Title of an 'interesting' thread posted by jilley. see: My neighbor's dog brought home a human skull, what Note: She hasn't posted since (at least not as jilley) (Jet Jaguar)
Mediacrat - Leftwing editorialists who pose as neutral journalists. They are anti America and especially Anti Bush. (EQAndyBuzz)
Excellent lexicon reference guide!
"Threadjackal" is a term that has a history in some "thrilling threads of yesteryear." "Threadjacking" can also be a useful term.
Add to FMCDH - BITS (Blood in the Streets)
Some freeper would always have this at the end of his posts.
I wish the old "Wheel of Eschoir" pictures were about.
threadjacking (threadjackal) - when a thread's subject is completely changed from the original post's intent. As in: starting with an article/post on birth control and ending up with a thorough discussion of zebras. Those who engage (intentional or not) in such behavior may be accused of being a "threadjackal".
Got it (added in with FMCDH).
Tourist Guy (aka tourist of death) - after September 11, a picture was prolifically passed around the interenet (an emails) of a male tourist (a Hungarian man named Péter Guzli) posing atop the World Trade Center just as one of the planes was about to hit it. The picture turned out to be a photoshopped fake. Since, the male tourist has been seen in any number of settings (he's everywhere). See also: Wikipedia - Tourist guy.
The post got pulled!!!!! can you mail me the URL, I searched but wasn't able to find it....
It's fully how the story took on a life of its own...everything from a wife who said...oh my husbands on a plane being hijacked but I'm taking a shower to a wife who was scared her husband was on the way home cause her husband was on the way home etc...
I gotta admit I was a bit ticked off that day, but like you said, gotta have thick skin to be on FR all the years I have.
How's the world treating you?
I'm lost. My cell phone stopped working.
Got another order for software from Finley Fire.
Outside of that not much happening.
I'm happy to be remembered so fondly by you. I'm greatful to have been helpful to you when you needed it.
Hugs and blessings
So dang unfair!! It's been pulled!
Some freeper would always have this at the end of his posts.
That's freeper "nothingnew"
Here is one of the original threads about Tourist Guy
Also wondering if there had been discussed having a Wall of Honor or a Memorial "Wall" for FReepers who have gone to that big FReeper world in the sky. Would hate to see people like Barbara Olson and others not get mentioned.
I shoud also say that some on the Hobbit Hole Dwellers are the ones funding a supply drive for our men and women (Hobbit Hole Knives). The work they have done has been INCREDIBLE.
Well, I think we mostly just got to talking amongst ourselves and haven't shut up yet, but thank you for mentioning the HH knife project Alkhin, thanks to winmag's unending dedication, we've now shipped over 1600 knives. :~)
I wanted to add - LOOKS EXCELLENT - am glad for the chance to walk down memory lane. I actually began with FR back in 1998 under a different nick, but there was some kind of technological blowout that I ended up having to choose a different username (this one). GREAT JOB!!
You're welcome :D! I tend to think the HHD posters have had some immortal threads as well.
hey, that is one fine work! Thanks for bringing it all together for us.
