I was murdered tonight.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

I should have known better. I stated many times that I would not give up my e-mail address on an internet forum. For good reason. Now my dead body lay on the floor and I have no one to blame but myself.

I started to trust you people-chatted with you in Bok's, you know? And you seemed like a good bunch. I had a sneaking suspicion about a certain anon, but I decided I was just a little "paranoid". So one night, I do not remember which thread, I posted my real addy. Bang. Bang. Big mistake.

Apaarently someone had a problem with me just trying to have a good time. They thought there was something wrong with me hanging out here for good intellectual discourse, debate, humor, and simply to blow off steam. They must have hated me for not having an agenda, for not being mad at SOMEBODY for christ's sake. They must have hated me for the fact I would not declare a religion, or a stance on Y2K, or what political party I came from. I am not sure.

All I know is I now lay here with two bullets in the back of my head.

Is it because I did not have anything to qoutabally quote? Is it because I did not have a favorites section full of TB2K archives? Is it because I refused to learn HTML? I will never know, you see, because now I am dead.

I did not think he could "track" me from an e-mail address. I did not have a lawyer ready to defend me from his peering keyboard. My name is rather common, but somehow he was able to distinguish me from the masses. What can I do now?

Good thing there are internet connections in the afterlife. The fool did not know this. I wil haunt him on this board until his last breath.

FutureShock - I am somewhat (very) confused. What happened?

-- Grace (SincerelyGrace@aol.com), July 10, 2000.

Email me. Please explain what is going on. This kind of casualty we don't need.

-- Oxy (Oxsys@aol.com), July 10, 2000.


Very cryptic my friend,I do not know if we should be concerned or to take it tounge in cheek?Please elaborate,curiosity is killin' this cat.

-- capnfun (capnfun1@excite.com), July 10, 2000.

RIP FS; Long live FS

Condolences from OZ

-- Pieter (zaadz@icisp.net.au), July 10, 2000.


What happened? Am I next? I'm currently on the road with a laptop and no address book, but will contact you when I get back. I wondered myself about a couple of persistent Anons.

Best wishes!

-- Flash (flash@flash.hq), July 10, 2000.

This has obviously been posted by his murderer. FS was shot whilst surfing, he is now slumped over his computer displaying the 404 not found message.

Elementary my dear Watson.

>Good thing there are internet connections in the afterlife

Was Dilbert right? Did you go to a cubicle in the afterlife?

-- (kb8um8@yahoo.com), July 10, 2000.

I am one who is prone to hyperbole, yet you have outshone me with this powerful yet cryptic post. It leaves me wanting. What ARE you refering to FS? Why start a thread and leave people who care about you hanging in the breeze? Please contact one of us from the prayer group privately.

Reach out once more my friend. You have offered this forum the depth and breadth of your character. You share intimate glimpses into your soul through your poetry. You teach spiritually by combining heart & head and then putting fingers to keyboard.

May your difficulties find resolution quickly and painlessly.


-- Bingo1 (howe9@shentel.net), July 10, 2000.

Thanks for your genuine concern. This was a satire in the spirit of Jonathan Swift. I had just finished reading the last post from Netghost, and after several folks over the last month mentioned lawyers and others were worried about IP outings, and the general mindset of some of the posters, I decided to "run out" my dark satire skills.

You must remember this is a scorpio's sens of humor. Traditionally ruled by Pluto, The god of the underworld, it is rather easy for this scorpio to write such a post.

Sorry to those who did not catch it; I did not mean to cause alarm. I myself, upon rereading it though, find it hilarious. See you in Bok's.

-- FutureShock (gray@matter.think), July 10, 2000.

LOLOL FS that was hilarious! And even funnier is that they are taking it seriously hahahahaha.

So who is on the road with a laptop? FLASH did it! Nice touch trying to look surprised there Flash.

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), July 10, 2000.

BTW-This is the phrase thatet me off" from NG:

"I hope you run into these types sometime in your life, and I hope you have the resources and knowlege to stop them... or you won't be here long..."

It was 2 in the morning. I was defenseless against the dark side!

-- FutureShock (gray@matter.think), July 10, 2000.

Certainly glad you enjoyed yourself.

The fact that you suffered theft of your identity and made this known lead me, upon reading this "work", to be quite concerned for your safety. Dark satire is an accurate description.

Thanks for playing. Don't forget your parting gifts.

-- Bingo1 (howe9@shentel.net), July 10, 2000.

OK, so ya got me. Never assume anything. If your mother says she loves you, check it out.

-- Oxy (Oxsys@aol.com), July 10, 2000.


What you and Ghostbuster have experienced is the most frightening thing I have heard since Richard Simmons was stalked by Rosie O'Donnell. I have retained a former CIA operative to review my personal security situation. Options include deep-cover, body armor, armored cars, personal body guards, hi-tech weaponry, and attack-rabbits. But I am resolute. I shall prevail.

-- Lars (lars@indy.net), July 10, 2000.


I wasn't familiar with the Swift connection, but the whole thing sounded kind of metaphorical or symbolic, so I wasn't overly concerned. That being said, I WAS waiting with some anticipation (only a couple of beads of sweat so far, though) for you to pop up on a thread -- somewhere, and felt relieved when you finally did.

You know, FS -- you missed your chance. You could have pulled off a death and spiritual resurrection. You'd be an angelic presence, totally removed from the physical world -- well, except that you could post on a forum.


You know, B.B. King (the blues singer) did a song called, "Nobody Loves Me But My Mother, and She May Be Jivin' Me Too."

-- eve (eve_rebekah@yahoo.com), July 10, 2000.

Thanks for your genuine concern.

You did raise our hopes for a while only to dash them to the ground, if indeed you are still alive (and I'm not sure).

No we weren't concerned, just bored to death. What is Bok's anyway some sort of cyber or funny farm.

-- richard (richard.dale@onion.com), July 10, 2000.

richard, boks is where the internets biggest losers go. The people who frequent there have absoluely no life so they sit at their computer and type stupid stuff to people they will never know. They don't talk about anything important or informative so you couldn't classify what they do as "networking". They are just silly people who must be very physically ugly and can't get out of the house. Here is a partial list of some of the dumb ugly people who frequent there.

Anita - Flash - Oxy - Flint - Bingo - Futurecrap - Cherri - Consumer - eve sometimes - cin - monkey spanker - hawk sometimes? - Pat - and maybe the rest will be brave (or stupid) enough to tell you their names.

-- (Bill G@tes is.king), July 10, 2000.

I finally made someone's list!!!!

-- Bingo1 (howe9@shentel.net), July 10, 2000.

Don't worry, FS.

We'll get the bum the did this to you. We'll drag him in front of the judge. He'll be tried by a jury of his peers. He'll get what every murderer gets! About two more minutes in the clink than most hocky players get in the penalty box!

Watch six and keep your...

-- FutureShock (gray@matter.think), July 10, 2000.


I got to boc's every night, rain or shine. I can count on one hand how many times I've been there, I regret to say that being on the west coast, by the time it is time to get on there, most have left :o)

I have to write myself a note to remember to go earlier because I enjoy chatting there. Sadly the few times I have been there LL was there acting as she normally does. THAT is why I think she's back, if she ever left.

FS I thought you had been exposed as the secret emailer about NG and had you isp # taced down and your personal identity given out. I certainly hope I was wrong.

-- Cherri (sams@brigadoon.com), July 10, 2000.

Is this the time for someone to put another link to Bok's in the thread? So we can go see all the other dumb, ugly people? Or do we leave the link off the thread so the smart people can't find the place??

Wow I am impressed, I was mentioned.? Hey FS, I'll 2nd that emotion, if nobody told ya today they luv ya, well first FS, now me :-0

BTW, FS, good thing i havent checked in awhile, i'd of bought that hook line and sinker!!!!!

My dear, you are tooooo intellectual for me at times :-(

and dear billy boy i think that was his name, I did disclose my name you just werent in Bok's the nite i did......tee hee.

----tee hee snicker, sumer aka consumer aka, you'll never know.

-- consumer (shh@aol.com), July 10, 2000.

Good grief crew, you couldn't even recognize FS's post as satire? No wonder ya got 10 cases 'o beans left....

Here, let me give you a reason not to fear. Some people already KNOW who you guys are, fake emails and all (I won't go into this, but suffice it to say if you posted at TB2000 last year, there's way more than a "good" chance that you're known. Yet....you live! I live! lol....

-- FactFinder (FactFinder@bzn.com), July 10, 2000.

Factfinder please...go into it. I'm curious as to what that means. =)

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), July 10, 2000.

And by the way, who is the bigger loser...the ones who chat in Bok's, or the ones who sit in there for HOURS and lurk just to get everyone's name and see how much of nothing they talk about. DUH

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), July 10, 2000.


All is well. I was having fun with the paranoia of some in the last month.

Factfinder: Thank you. Thank you. Someone got my sense of humor.

I guess since some folks knew I had my identity stolen last year this may have been a little over the edge-but it is nice to know these folks care-this goes for gates, too. As long as I am FutureCrap to this person at least I am on their scorecard. The highest insult is indifference LOL

-- FutureShock (gray@matter.think), July 10, 2000.


With my tounge in my cheek,seemingly firmly applied,

I swallowed it whole and the good capn died.

Now I sit at my celestial computer,post haste resurrection,

I can track them ALL with my cosmic cable connection.

: ) Good'ern.

-- capnfun (capnfun1@excite.com), July 11, 2000.

I thought popping my "chat" cherrie was fun!

Everyone here is looking for something.

Its all fun. 909something.... forgot my number? I am findable. If anyone wanted to look....


Bingo and Regrets were not ignoring you, they were just getting off on each other and enjoying anyone watching. It wasn't private just exclusive. Snobs.

-- chat (yeepie@ok.com), July 11, 2000.


I know better. No one will kill your spirit and you know it too. :-)


No, I don't post at Boks chatroom, too fast for my contemplative mind. I bet Monkey Spanker really enjoys it though, because he can spank himself even faster as he posts rapid insults and then rewards "himself". LOL!!

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), July 11, 2000.


I thought the post most likely was satire, however I felt it best to inquire, just in case.

Oh, and I don't have (and never did have) 10 cases of beans, but I do have a few cases of canned chicken left, in case your interested! I'm certainly sick of chicken, but my dog's think they are just yummy!!!

-- Grace (SincerleyGrace@aol.com), July 11, 2000.

Damn, In case *you are* interested!

-- Grace (SincerelyGrace@aol.com), July 11, 2000.

hat yeepie:

It was 9090!

CapnFun-good one.
