He was something.
A psych profile on him would be very revealing.I do wonder where he went after that.

I do know that some of that ilk went to an anarchist web board.
(I think it’s been shut down since then.)
Others went to Clown Posse.
And still others went to CU and even DU.

BWHAHA! Murrymom! Wonder where “she’s” at these days?

I can't find it now, but somebody outed another FReeper as MurryMom a few months back. Apparently, he/she/it is still around.

Yes, that is quite true.
I found FR in 99, but didn’t sign up for awhile.
I lurked and read.
And laughed.
Alot.
Then in October 2000 I decided to dive in, got depth charged, had a few torpedo runs done on me.
It was great.

But I will say that having to hand html your posts was a real pain.

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

Don't take it personally. You just inadvertently stumbled onto a memorable time in FR history.

And then it took off from there. Threads like this get started every once in a while.

Look at it this way: your posting is currently the sixth most popular article, and will probably keep going up.

You were sucked in by the immense gravitational tide vortices and were helplessly dragged to the foci of force.
There to orbit endlessly.
Oh wait.. that’s my laundry spinning helplessly.

We abducted you attached to your keyboard, a vicious FReepnapping into the shadowy cyberlands.
(Sounds more likely.)

As I told the last person to accidentally post a nostalgia thread:
“Just roll with it.”
A bunch of FR related humor sprang up due to the posters article.
They did eventually join back in with the rampant galloping goofery.

I remember back when I first joined, it was considered a milestone when you were flamed by Deb. Until then you were simply a n00b and was worth less than worm slime . .

I had a nutcase liberal friend at work who I kept telling to click onto FreeRepublic on his WebTV.

He came in one morning and said, "I finally went to that FreeRepublic.com place".

"Oh really?"

"Yeah.....I talked to someone in a cheerleader's suit named 'Deb'".

And I thought, "Jeeze....when you first strap on a gun, you don't go walking into town looking for the Derango Kid!"

It is mentioned above but the poster with the screen name “deep in the Hurtgen Forest” pretended to be a Special Forces guy on deployment many years ago and got a lot of sympathy for situtational distance etc from various Freepers. Sneakypete and others with SF experience began to doubt his bonafides and some conflict occured as some rose to his defense.

He finally admitted to being a poser and gave a goodbye that was part bittersweet apology and part rationalizing. I think he/they got started carrying out the charade and didn’t expect the sincere fellowship getting to him/them.

Sometimes in referencing that whole chain people will refer to “Deep” or “DTHF” to reference that poster and the whole charade.

Hey Cal. I remember my first conversation with you back in ‘98. You posted a thread about “what’s your favorite” something and I told you who was my favorite freeper instead (Clarity). They we started talking football, you said you were a Cowboy fan and I said I would never post to you again.

Go Green Bay!
