Hot Shots was a true classic! If only they'd parody the LotR films like they did Top Gun, then it would be the Holy Trinity.

I can't help but wonder, given the lack of activity relatively speaking here and it's general decline, I guess Facebook and Twitter might have something to do with this, people don't seem to want to go much on other sites, how long this place will be here for. A year's time fine, but I'm not so sure about two.

It's a different internet world than it was in 2000. Message boards were all the rage from the mid-late 90's to well into the new century. But the development of smartphones, tweets & facebooking take up much more of people's available time nowadays and offer an easy way to connect, which was what message boards did back then.

We've paid up for a bit more. After the last collection plate went around, we should be here for about 8 more years, right?

Yeah but who can afford Charlie Sheen these days? And getting Loyd Bridges to play the Gandalf character is kinda impossible...

Singolo and SSA bullied me off unmercifully. That witch hunt was fun to them and perhaps still would be if people came back to bully.

I was saved from suicide by a miracle of some sort. People found me out in the woods under a tree. I was upset when I woke up in the hospital.. I really wanted to be dead.

Now I just say to myself, "I don't have to do it today, I can do it any day, whenever."..

Hi, The Sherriff!

I posted in the thread you created about this. If you want to discuss it, would you mind sticking to that one thread, instead of posting this in multiple places across the forum? It makes things easier to keep track of.

In regards to what you've said, it's my suggestion that you think a bit more about your situation at the time. The kind of drastic action you're talking about doesn't happen just because of internet messageboard drama. I'm sure there was more to it than that, and it's a little unfair to show up years later and try to blame people here for your suicide attempt. It's important to take responsibility for your own decisions - particularly the critical ones! They're within your power, and nobody else's.

On that note, I find it incredibly difficult to imagine Singollo bullying anyone. He doesn't post here regularly any longer, so he probably won't be here to respond, but in all the years I've been at this board he's been nothing but kind and friendly, one of the nicest people here. I think he was even voted our Friendliest Citizen by the populace once or twice.

Perhaps you misinterpreted the posts? That's easily done, if you're feeling depressed and looking for the negative anyway. Maybe think about what it would mean if you reframed whatever incident you're thinking of in those terms.

Can you say troll? This guy/girl's hardly even posted and is picking on people who never picked on anyone... Are they, in fact, the cyber-bully here?

Do something about Sherriff please, WGW.

May I point out that I have not the slightest idea who The Sherriff is/was and that, if you check out the whole three posts s/he made before today, I have never even posted in the same thread as him/her, let alone bullied him/her.

And thanks Aikanaro []

Uh...you're welcome? []

I tend to assume good faith until I've seen definite proof of trolling, and respond accordingly. I don't see any harm in that approach, even if it's not one that every poster here chooses to take.

To each their own, I guess.

What I find strange is that by the time The Sherriff registered (08 May, 2006), I'm fairly certain Singollo didn't use that screenname any more. He changed to Thingol some time before he stopped posting - I might even be able to work out what time he did so, but I won't spend time on it right now.

So why call him Singollo now? Did The Sherriff know him as Singollo - with The Sherriff using a different name earlier?

Besides, I couldn't see Thingol/Singollo bullying anyone either ...

Possibly ... []

It's possible that The Sheriff posted more than three posts, though. There was a transfer of the site to a different host some years ago, and after that transfer most of the old threads in the Pony became inaccessible for search. Possibly something to do with database indexing.

So there may be posts in the Pony that don't count in the post count and that won't show up in a search. If you know what thread to look for, you would have to look through each page of old threads in the Pony and in the Archives. []

Not worth the bother. []

It looks like it was worth the effort.
I was out of the City for years and want to thank those who climbed the stony slope all the way to the edge of the snow to find sapling tree and then replant it in the court by the fountain.

Agreed, and I like the fact that it continues ticking over, even though the days of heavy traffic may have gone.
