    The meanings of some of the words we use to describe ourselves and what we are doing on this news blog have changed over the years, just as, for example, the words we use to describe what a returning soldier goes through have changed. What we used to call "shell shock" after WW2 became 'battle fatigue' after the Viet-Nam conflict. From there we called it "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD" after soldiers began being exposed to a new substance used during wars, depleted uranium. (cont)

    After 9/11 until shortly after the War on Iraq began in 2003, most of us called places like this one here "news chatrooms", because that's what the were. We called ourselves all sorts of names, but mostly just our chosen screennames or usernames. Mine was 'Philipedouglas' from 1995-2005, then Philipe 12, and now, 'Philip'.
    If we were trying to be funny in order to make a point, we might call ourselves a funny name, and "pose" as a charachter like 'Sherrif Bob 9/11', who was actually 'Mr. Triglyceride', an ardent Bush supporter. His arch enemy was 'Ahkmed the Terror Guy', a charachter I invented shortly after Bin Laden became a prominant figure in the world in 1998. He and I had some of the funniest goll darned "arguements"...Sherrif Bob 911 built "Dog City" where he would throw other chatters into jail, mostly female democrat "partisan gossips" we called "micros" because virtually all of their messeages were short little outbursts. Today, 'micros' are called "microbloggers". My charachter Ahkmed trained a big housefly, froze it, and attached a wooden match to it's back using thread. The housefly flew into the Dog City Bank Towers and caught them on fire. Sherrif Bob 911 called-out the 'bucket brigade', his online friends who would join-in the fun.

    It was all good-natured ribbing that started getting ugly when the "highjackers" started showing up. (cont)

    "Highjackers" were people who would steal the personal usernames of others and pose as them. Then, they would 'lurk' around until that person posted something that exposed their personal lifestyle, and would vulgarly and seditiously attack that persons charachter. The chatroom that was once a friendly place got turned into the online version of a food fight.

    Mr. Tri and myself both chipped-in and hired this college kid to find out exactly who were the ones doing it, and what else they were doing online. Mr. Triglyceride lives in London, and he and I have been doing this together for almost 10 years. Following is a brief description of what we have found. And I won't be posting anyones screen names...just some general info some of you might find interesting. he he (cont)

    The Internet Anti-Bullying Website. You continually make derogatory statements against other posters. It has also come to our attention that you have also obtained certain individual phone numbers & stalked those individuals. That sir is breaking the law

    @Michael Fury (wink) Thanks for posting http://michaelfury.wordpress.com/2010/06/23/by-their-fruits/..for as you know, it is by these peoples "fruits" that they shall be found out about.

    And before I begin to let it rain here, I'd like to tell you the story of the AOL deluge. The first "partisan gossip" that Mr. Tri and I exposed for all to see was this little rich old lady living in an assisted living center in Boston who was membername 'Martha Vineyard'. The center is a plush and luxurious place that included internet access in each condo. But this old lady was using hers for all sorts of stuff, including hijacking our personal s/n's and making it rather difficult for either of us to get our words out. We posted an exact copy/paste of one of her online lovemaking sessions she had been having not only with some of the Dudes, but with a couple of the dudettes. The assisted living center took away her PC and internet access privledges, and if not for her wealth, she may have very well gone to prison for the other things she had been doing for years...financial things.

    Rather than apologizing and moving on, she sued AOL, who was forced to shut the entire chatroom community down.

    The laws have changed since then. Internet service providers cannot be held liable for anything their members post online anymore. You could try sueing me, but it would cost you a lot of time and money, and then you would have to prove actual damages were done. Good luck with that one.

    Martha Vineyard, R.I.P. She passed away a few years ago, bitter to the very end.

    Now, back to what's been going on around here. (cont)
