It was a FReeper from about 10 years ago who was posing as someone in the military using the nick, Deep In The Hurtgen Forest.

Many years ago, there was a poster on FR who used the screen name "DeepintheHurtgenForest". He was supposedly on active duty but turned out to be a poser. There was another a little later who went by "ClassyGreenEyedBlonde" who, I believe, turned out to be a guy.

I don’t think it was ever determined for certain that ClassyGreenEyedBlonde was a she but s/he he was definitely a phoney.

A+bert! I loved that old coot. He’s the sort of person you keep around to reassure yourself that you are not, in fact, drinking too much.

Ooooh, what about quidnunc? And that lawyer - Jack something, Thompson maybe - who wanted to sue everybody for everything?

Yes, I do remember Ash Alerts. Did JR post a lot more, around that time too?

Remember “Italians” as in “Don’t forget to close your Italians” and all the pages that were huge letters and the piles of cartoons?

I think that SneakyPete or HarpSEAL got suspicious and had some veteran certification outfit check him out, and he was unmasked.

He pennned some sentimental bye-bye opus in which he alleged he fabricated the service record in order to “spreak awareness” of something or other.

He never served in the US military.

OMG, that’s right Judith. It was before John programmed the site to close tags in replies. I remember Laz creating a HTML bomb for us to use when FR was bombarbed with HTML trolling during the March for Justice. Several freepers spent the day using his code.

I remember when FR was still so small that on an average day there would be like...30 threads or less —the ENTIRE day..!

EVERYONE knew one another.

I remember when Drudge was still getting like 100,000 hits per day.

FR grew. When that happened, there were weird waves of people bidding goodbye, “cuz now everything sucks here, and it’s not like before...”.

See, but then they’d keep coming BACK, saying goodbye MORE AND MORE —very annoying.

I remember, “BTTT”..! ;) Ah good times..!

Never protested anything before but screamed my lungs out.

Was I in the Chinese General outfit? I think General Chang might have come to live sometime after that...

No wait, I was interviewed, and later told 5 seconds of it got onto World News with Peter Jennings, or something.

I was jumping around making a ridiculous Chinese accent (this was during the Johnny Huange missles for cash days).

Come to think of it, yes you did.

I had my kids with me. They were confused by the whole thing but for me it was a real catharsis.
