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.

Very nice, and sure gave me some food for thought, and a walk down memory lane.

Since I found this site (can't even remember now how I did, think I searched for conservative websites and got lucky),

I:

-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!

Lisa

Great job. With even "FReep" posted in its proper form, as a verb, and not as a noun as is known to (all too often) occur and irritate the heck out of me.

One note: in the Hillary list, you forgot PIAPS. And, no, I'm not volunteering to update.

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.

RKBA - 1. Right To Keep and Bear Arms 2. Road Killed Beeber Association - They come in and pave over the dead troll, on dead troll threads. Pictures of a paver/steamroller are often used. They are also responsible for the original Undead Thread (see Lore). (nopardons)

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)

"Threadjackal" is a term that has a history in some "thrilling threads of yesteryear." "Threadjacking" can also be a useful term.

How's this:

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".

Never mind, I got it:

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.

Thanks!!!

Not sure if it has been mentioned or it is relevant, but would personally like to see some mention of the FReeper Hobbit Hole, which was started by FReepers who loved Tolkien and were sick of the lefties using LOTR to claim that there should be no such thing as war and that Tolkien would have wanted the West to lay down and die in the face of its enemies. (am I correct in this Hair?)

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.
