Yes, and Clinton’s a liar defended him right down the wire even though the evidenced piled up right before her eyes. Even when the verdict was in she refused to admit she was wrong.

All along you thought I was a balding 53 year old dude with a growing waistline, when I was really a smoking hot 25 year old nympho chick.

Sorry I’ve let you down...

You knew you'd arrived when you were laughing yourself silly from one of A+Bert's drunken private mail diatribes. Replying in any way, shape or manner goaded him to new heights of vitriol.

Lots of fun on long winter nights back then... sigh.

O.P.H. was a backbiting gossip and a double-crosser at every turn. There were few redeeming qualities that he brought. He ended up a hardcore antifreeper.

Come to think of it, the antifreeping and clown posse-ing is pretty much extinct, isn't it?

This has to be the worst hijacking of a thread I have ever seen. A quest for movie recommendations goes off topic at post 3 and goes on for another 250 posts of nostalgia, never to go back on topic again.

Thanks I was looking for info on this battle and it got sidetracked by a few A** holes

Hi, amom. I never got contributions for anything (I wouldn’t know a good box of cigars from a bad one). Another freeper sent a box of cigars to me for the person posing as military/DITHF. At the time I stupidly didn’t mind giving out my address to someone I didn’t know on the internet.

I had corresponded in email with what I thought were several different wives (different email accounts) of the “group” of active duty guys claiming to post under the DITHF name from active duty overseas. I thought they were legitimate but was duped. I forwarded the cigars to a stateside post office box one of the “wives” gave me via email. That’s as far as it went.

And, yes, Sneakypete outed the guy—vaguely remember several members of a military group were making sure the guy was held accountable. I told one of the guys in the group investigating everything I knew, giving him the post office box address and email addresses. I think the perp was former reserves or some such. The group did not share the results of their findings with me.

Sneakypete and I used to get into it on those threads! But we ended up email buddies after a time.

Can’t believe this has been over a decade!

Thanks for sending the thread, basil. Lots of old memories! =]

“Okay, who here remembers DITHF?”

Yup. I’ve been lurking on this thread off and on since last night. Wow, it brings back memories.

Anyone heard from Nita Nuprez, who changed her name to Nita Nupress? I think she needs to go back to her original screen nom de plume in “honor” of the current Pres__ent.

Hi back atcha!! I love this thread. Take away all those past years and it sure would have been dull. Best thing to have found FR, for all the reasons you can think of, but also for all the interesting contacts, too!

I’m fine. Still kicking. And kicking high — with this new knee! Because of it I was able to attend the Freep at the WH press dinner last month.

And how are you?

I want to add another name from the past who is sorely missed. YaYa123. What a great gal she was.

Charles..
Sorry about teh threadjacking.
But many of us have.. uh.. memories of a certain poster.
Be glad you didn’t find a way to have moose biting sisters in there with cheese beebers and stuned Unnngh live mice.
A long time ago on a thread far far away there was a poster named Deep in the Hurtgen Forest.
He posed as a past/present military insider during the Clinton years.
Eventually he was caught out there.
Wish I had a link to his grandstanding opus, it was a classic if memory serves.

As for the Hurtgen offensive, there are online resources available, but try to stay away from Wikipedia.
You’ll likely read there about how Germany was defeated by Snoopy’s buddy Woodstock.
