1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Obviously I'm late, as I almost never click on the "where's so-and-so" threads. I can only offer belated condolences and regrets to RJ, a wonderful poster and person.

    As for the one who made whatever these comments were, he's demonstrated once again that he's a sick individual. I mean that without any hyperbole whatsoever. A person who can cling to grudges like that and do some of the things he's done is in need of serious psychiatric assistance.

    It's this very type of person that makes me think three times about revealing anything about myself online. I've been stalked before; nowadays, it would be even easier with the proliferation of the internet.

    The terrible thing, though, is that he's probably reading all these comments and feeling gratification.


    + a big F'ing 1

    Sad to hear this had to happen to RJ.

    I totally missed this and obviously feel bad for RJ and wish I knew who the poster was so as to make sure and avoid him but this is one of the reasons I try and not partake in any serious back and forths with people and also why I am extremely hesitant to meet internet people in real life, even those of you that seem "normal".

    Hey RJ let me add another voice to the well wishers. Sad to see you go as RJ snark is the best snark.

    I'll keep my eyes open for some Dunhill corral cufflinks, maybe that will lure you back.

    this incident just proves that a well-dressed piece of shit that can afford to buy the best stuff will always remain, a piece of shit.

    I just visited the FNB site in question, looked around for about 20 minutes, and I must say that you are absolutely correct. I don't think that I'm going out on a limb here by stating that the eponymous site's founder requires a cult of personality.

    Again, to my best knowledge FNB was not the guy who made the thread in question -- he took it down, which was the decent thing to do. I don't frequent his site so I don't know if he banned the sock puppet and its puppeteer. I don't think acidboy, gdl, vox, Manton, Teacher et al are referring to FNB himself. Again, I don't want to encourage more speculation or rubbernecking at this awful trainwreck. If you know, you know, if you don't, please don't throw out names. Just maintain a sense of critical thinking and ask yourself why anyone holding himself out as a sartorial authority or posting a great deal is doing so, what his motivations are, and whether the things he says he's done actually support his implicit claims to being an authority or actually merit the adulation of others.

    Can we have one non-hijack threak? After vox and [​IMG] stood down and played it straight and just after it seemed we had hijacked the thread back from Manton... I don't want to come back.

    I'm not putting the blame on FNB, nor am I speculating/wanting to know who the person was who did this, but the overall culture of that site, from my glances, seems quite spiteful to me.

    For public record, I wasn't. The person we referred to is loooong gone, so most around here don't even know who he is anyway.

    Neither did I except peripherally until Manton kept on flogging me.

    I didn't quite believe it, though, until I saw it myself.

    I only play it straight when veins aren't involved. Bring on the veins and I'll bring on the ghey.

    Manton-on-Vox flogging is as unstraight as it gets.

    "Decent." Yeah.

    You know damned well FNB has not and will never ban or otherwise discipline in any way that psychopath. First, the miscreant is really the heart and soul of FNB's site. The place would collapse without his malice. Second, FNB very evidently enjoys his torments and especially whom the tormentor torments, people whom FNB also personally hates, to a man. FNB will never stop it because he enjoys it.

    I'm not putting the blame on FNB, nor am I speculating/wanting to know who the person was who did this, but the overall culture of that site, from my glances, seems quite spiteful to me.
    You should. He aids, abets and enables all of this trash and has for years.

    For public record, I wasn't. The person we referred to is loooong gone, so most around here don't even know who he is anyway.

    He's long gone from here, but he's quite active over there, where close to all he does is rant about what goes on here.

    Neither did I except peripherally until Manton kept on flogging me.
    You cool it with the self serving lies, I'll stop the flogging. Deal?
