The Lone Ranger and how to start a conspiracy theory


The month we heard we lost Persephone was also the month of the arrival of a new character who we’ll call the Lone Ranger. It turned out he was anything but lone, but we’ll get into that later.

What the infamous Lone Ranger does in the meantime is reawaken a thread that was two months old. Now the Ebola scare was really the rage in the United States that fall. They even sent the American Gestapo after some poor woman in Maine who had returned from Africa because they were afraid she’d infect the whole city of Portland. Anyhow, this clown comes on to tell everyone to be afraid, very afraid. And, yes, he is serious. If you didn’t agree with his warnings that we had to absolutely panic and hide in our bomb shelters (or whatever he was advocating), then you were just sheep. Indeed sheep was his favorite word. I wouldn’t have been surprised if he had a farm of human sheep and he was the wolf.

I should mention I first came across this character when he yelled at some poor kid for asking how it was possible to write on toilet paper. Well, apparently he was a PhD in something. Now apparently, that PhD was in several medical fields. He certainly did have a BS at least and it didn’t stand for Bachelor of Science.

This Lone Ranger gets into it with a more respected member (who actually is taking medicine as his major) about how Ebola is spread in the air, kind of in the same way mosquitoes spread AIDS. Meanwhile, another thread crops up by someone named Tonto (Labor Party) who decides to start a Ebola poll while asking that it doesn’t devolve into the debate going on in the Ebola thread. Strangely enough, Lone Ranger never shows up in that thread. I even give Tonto rep which is something else we can do on LS. Guess what, there will more on him later too.

So this Lone Ranger would be in and out of LS for the next couple months usually causing some sort of havoc on the forum. Meanwhile, the sheep went about their business and, incredibly enough, not a single one of us got infected.

Though I think one member may have come down with mono. I told him he had to stop kissing goats in heat.

That thread is still up. LS isn’t like here where threads from nimrods like the greatest guitarist in his own mind guy stay on the open boards for posterity. Most threads that are considered baiting are pulled before any feelings can get frayed. Of course, writers tend to be a little more serious by nature.

Anyway, the Lone Ranger would disappear for a while, but he left us with a rather enjoyable legacy, something common here but more of a rarity over there.

So until next time, Hiyo, Silver!

Your tale is developing really well, rubber soul! I love the way you have introduced us to a range of characters and personalities. There's plenty of tension, the sense that something worse is to come, but we can't guess where from....

I've spent more time on MB than I ever would have imagined, but I've never read much on the topic of forum life, which is why I find your story so interesting - because on MB we have experienced slightly similar events. We have had our bans, wars, dramas, and also one death in the ranks, but nobody has ever tried to put together an account of events, or even less, to talk about how forum life effects people irl.

Great stuff

When we had Simon Cowell on the forum (did you know he was a fundamentalist?)



Once upon a time, the poetry forums were blessed with the greatest critic in the history of Lucky Strikes. Indeed, he was the Simon Cowell of all poetry critics, though he preferred to be referred to as Jesus. I guess that name was taken, so he went by the name of Oral Falwell instead (again the names were changed toÖ).

Now Lucky Strikes had an unwritten policy that you were supposed to accept critiques no matter how harsh they might be. Of course about half of us wanted to be a bit more encouraging (that too was something not frowned upon) and the other half would be more critical but they would almost always invariably have a kind word at the end.

Not this guy. He would say something along the lines of, ďIíve seen better poems written by my mangy ten year old poodle.Ē Okay, so he didnít say that, but he did belittle the OP a bit then went after the people trying to defend her. Yes, Virginia, this man was a piece of work.

Did I mention he was something of a fundamentalist? Well, he was something of a fundamentalist. Now, to be fair, he didnít try to preach the gospel or demand people have sex with a live chicken while wearing a snake around their necks. He did, however, have his own site and would find clever ways to try to entice people to go to his site. Now, youíre allowed to add your site to your signature; you can even advertise it to a point. What you canít do is mention your link or site in any of your posts. He wasnít the first one to try that stunt and he wouldnít be the last.

One day, and this was after I became a mod, Oral Falwell locked horns with the wrong hombre; our owner, Walt. Now that I remember, our would be evangelist did get into a little proselytizing on somebody's poetry thread. It was enough that somebody (I donít remember who) closed the thread. That was okay, Moral Oral just started a new one. That didnít go well with Walt, who had a habit of going over everyoneís head if he was pissed enough. So, after the fury of Walt, we were without Oralís words of wisdom for a whole month after that. Later on, he would earn another month when he ignored our, ahem, requests that he stop pointing to his signature in his posts. This time, I believe Nick got to do the honors (he was the Senior supervisor by then; me being the junior Super). He hasnít been on the forum too much since then.

But Iím sure heís out there somewhere doing his best imitation of a firey evangelist who thinks heís the greatest thing since John the Baptist.

So until next time, a clip from Oral Falwellís favorite showÖ



And, no, Tinky Winky is not gay. That would be Tipsy.

Demigod and The Day I Became a Mod (and my mini-stroke)



Once upon a time, there was a pleasant character by the name of Demigod. He wasn’t a god, of course, but he did seem to know everything about publishing. No, he did, just ask him. I met him in a thread where he was spewing venom at our Captain Ron. It was there where I learned Maćka had a bit of temper. Now her profanity tinged defense of Captain Ron was pulled, and I wouldn’t see it again until I had access to the pulled threads as a mod. Anyway, I knew then that Demigod was, shall we say, not right in the head.

Flash forward to November when he was at it again. This time the target was one of my friends who had recently made mod. One thing lead to another and Demigod called him a bully. Now I was in the position of defending someone though I’m slightly more diplomatic than Maćka was. Nevertheless, my post was pulled along with a couple others.

So imagine my surprise when I got a PM from Dorothy asking if I might want to become a mod. Moi?, I thought in my best Miss Piggy voice. I thought very hard about this and, about thirty seconds later, I said, “Yes”.

Now I had only been a member for about three and half months at this point. You’re supposed to be a member for at least six months before you’re asked to join staff. And it turns out I wasn’t supposed to have been asked at all; Dorothy went over all the administrators’ heads, something she would be known to do quite often, to my chagrin in the end.

In my case, it would work out but it could have been a total disaster. I mean I could have been a serial killer. Fortunately the only thing I ever killed in my life was a box of Cheerios. I’m still hiding out from the cereal police.

Now I had access to all sorts of Reported Posts and Staff Records. I got all the dirt on Demigod over both incidents. Incidentally, when we had to deal with a third incident, a couple of us began doing some sleuthing, and it was discovered that he wasn’t some smart mouthed kid like we got often, but some old codger who was trying to drum up business for his scam publishing site. We’ll get into that episode later.

Meanwhile, I was impressing everyone as we dealt with a character who was bumping all his creative threads after about eight years or something. Walt finally said the Hell with it and banned the moron. Of course, I was learning the whole time about moving threads, pulling threads, editing threads, you know, all the exciting parts of being a mod. I couldn’t ban spammers yet though. One of the supervisors, Nick (actually he was still a Global then), lived for that sort of stuff, kind of like one of those diabolical characters you might see in movies.

So I was getting comfortable in my new role, and I was now a little over a month into it when I suddenly couldn’t see. No, I mean everything was moving all around. Now, I had an embolism about a year earlier so I sensed I might have been in trouble. I managed to get upstairs ,and it wasn’t long before I was in the hospital. I apparently had a mini-stroke and was going to be in the hospital for ten to twenty again. Great, so much for being a mod.

Actually, it wouldn’t be that bad. I only suffered a little numbness in the end and I could move everything fine. And the hospital had internet access so I could check up on what was going on at LS. I guess that really impressed the powers that be, because I would find myself on the ladder you want to be on. Of course the ladder you don’t want to be on is the one where you end up getting banned but that’s another story.

So I was home in about three days (my doctor approved my parole) and I would be back to doing my thing at LS just as the adventures really began.

The Adventures of the Canadian Sock Puppets Part One





Just before my ill-timed mini stroke, there was a discussion about a relatively new member who Iíll call Calamity Vixen. You see, this Vixen was causing a bit of a ruckus on the forum by getting especially testy when she would be challenged about the art of haikus. Apparently this Calamity Vixen was the greatest haiku writer in the history of the world. The Japanese would bow in her presence while she was eating potato chips.

She was something of a topic for most of my first month as a moderator. This was before my mini-stroke when discussions actually started. There was talk of maybe giving her a warning. She was certainly receiving some direct PMís from some high up staff members. Now to be fair, we didnít know it was a Ďsheí at this point, though she would later make a big deal about it as she would announce more than once, ďWell, Iím a womanÖĒ

Well, Global Nick was checking something out of curiosity, and guess what he found? No, he didnít find a toy in his Cracker Jack box.

What he did find was that Calamity was sharing an IP with five other users. There were two that had joined right after Christmas and were pumping each other up in a poetry thread.

And then guess who else was sharing the IP? Yep, the Lone Ranger and his kemosabe, Tonto (Labor Party). The nitwit that started all the uproar in the Ebola thread was possibly a sock puppet and maybe even the ringleader so to speak, assuming a one person gang can have a ringleader.



And by chance, the Lone Ranger happened to be popping in after a long absence. Amazingly enough he didnít cause any problems. I guess he was tired of herding sheep. Meanwhile, Walt was doing some sleuthing of his own and found the IP emanating from a certain town in Canada. We would later discover that the Lone Ranger, in particular, was also using the IP at the local college. More sleuthing from several staff, including myself, kept finding more and more coincidences and we all came to the same conclusion.

We were being invaded by sock puppets



Walt wrote the six puppets to explain how six people from the same IP could possibly be on the same forum. He worded it in a non accusatory way which was the way we always handled things. Well, only one of the puppets answered. It was from the Lone Ranger, who proceeded to more or less throw his entire family under the bus, referring to them as his Ďidiot cousins.í It was vintage Lone Ranger to be sure. He called his kemosabe, Tonto, brain dead. That wasnít nice. He then pretty much blamed Russia in the end, mentioning that two of his Ďcousinsí returned to Russia.

Things died down for about a week, which also happened to coincide with my brief hospital stay. But right after I returned, we were dealing with yet another new obnoxious member, this one weíll call Tennis Shoe. She had written me a couple times, first about not being able to put something in her signature (you need to have ten posts before you can do that), and later, she was complaining that two of her poems had been pulled (it turned out she had posted more than the twenty-four hour allotment allows). Meanwhile, she was causing havoc while pumping up Calamity Jane in her haiku threads.

And I discovered something interesting. I was responsible for the introduce yourself board and I was able to see IP addresses on boards I had permissions in.

Her IP matched the Lone Rangerís. Did we have a new sock puppet?




And it didnít end there. Another member, this one we knew was a woman because she was calling herself Linda 747, showed up in my board using the same college IP. We had another sock puppet.



Well, that was enough damning evidence for Supervisor Pete who banned the lot of them. He probably wasnít supposed to, as I would find out later when I became a Supervisor and banned an obnoxious kid who attacked now Supervisor Nick (he had previously clipped someone who had been attacking me when I was still a global- in the end we both got chewed out by administration).

So we were done with the Canadian Sock Puppet caper. Walt made an announcement in the open boards so people didnít think we were in the process of some purge. Of course, this puppet would keep coming back as I had predicted, and it would be close to a year before Walt blocked her IP making it almost impossible to pop back up on the forum (though she could now be masking her IPs- they still talk about suspicious characters in the backroom).

For now though, all was right with the world as the Canadian sock puppets were now banned to another land called Muppetville or something like that.

So, goodbye for now as the adventures have finally begun. See you next installment

When they set up Demigod.



The sock puppet saga was over for now and we had to set our sights on another problem child, this one being Demigod. Now you may remember Demigod from the previous summer when he was calling Captain Ron a troll and Maćka got in some trouble (she got a warning though it was never documented- something we do now). Well, Demigod returned in all of his glory. He was now telling everyone how to publish their works. You see, he knew more about publishing than anyone else. To say he was thin skinned would have been an understatement, and he was baiting and trolling with the best of them. But he was really best at flaming and thatís what we were looking at.

Everybody was curious as to who this character was, in particular me and now Global Captain Ron for obvious reasons. A couple of us went back to our sleuthing and discovered he was basically a failed entrepreneur who even had some complaints against him. He was also an old man with a few screws loose it appeared.

Demigod would occasionally wander into the writing discussions with his bizarre opinions and would get personal whenever someone challenged him. It wasnít like it is here at MB, where people realize there are a bunch of Don Rickles impersonators here and they should be taken in the spirit of fun. Demigod was very serious, of course, and we were becoming serious too in the Modís Cave.


One night, while I was asleep, Walt decided he was going to challenge him on one of his theories. I wish I could remember what the discussion was about, but that damn Alzheimerís. Anyway, Walt made his challenge and Demigod responded in his usual manner. This time he attacked the owner. Now, there is a policy at Lucky Strikes where you attack any staffer at your own peril. Well, of course that was all Bill needed, and he banned Demigod for attacking not only a staff member, but the owner. Yep, Demigod certainly had his marbles together.

Of course, it was all set up. I donít know this for a fact, but an administrator, much less the owner, more of less went into a thread to bait a member, albiet one that deserved it as richly as Demigod did. It didnít really matter though. We were all glad to simply be rid of him.

It was pretty peaceful for a little while after that. There werenít any sock puppets (that we knew of) to be concerned with, and now a belligerent old man was out of our hair. Of course itís never over for a mod and certainly not for the higher ups.

But for now there was peace in the valley even as I was being pestered by a member about discouraging fly by nighters with my Ďmeaningful postsí caution. Of course that would pale compared to what was about to happen next.

In the meantime, we will say goodbye to Demigod, Bye, old fart!

The Saga of Veronica, Misty, and Dimitri


During the first month I was a mod, LS got an injection of another impressive group, possibly the most impressive since the group I came along with (we were all mods by now). Two of the newbies were young women in their twenties, and both had cheerful personas. They were the kind of girls you probably wanted to take home to meet your parents (unless you were a lesbian who hadnít come out yet- then I guess that could have been a little awkward).

Enter Dimitri. You remember him, right? He was the character who had been stalking Maćka. Well, the good news was now Maćka was safe. I guess you can guess the reason.

And indeed, Dimitri was making virtual advances at the girls, first at Misty, probably the more active poster of the two. Then he began paying attention to the other girl, Veronica. This was a little scarier since Dimitri was maybe within a hundred miles of Veronica. At least Misty and Maćka were safely overseas.

I began to notice when Dimitri asked Veronica if she would be his Valentine (it was around Valentineís day). I got into the fray mentioning that Dimitri wasnít my type. Veronica sent me a thank you letter and we discussed Dimitri for a little bit. It turned out Dimitri was also posting creepy messages on her visitor page asking if he were her pet rabbit (Veronica always talked about her pet rabbit) would he pet her. Maćka would tell me later that he acted like he had a Ďdate rape faceí. He was creeping her out too.

It got quiet for a couple weeks which was good as I was also involved with Mistyís comic project (as was Maćka, Veronica, and about a dozen guys but not Dimitri).

Now I should mention that Misty had a lot of suitors from the get go. A super, Bo Peep, even started a thread in the Modís Cave with a thread titled, ĎIím In Love with Misty.í Of course it was done in jest and he is still with us (in other words, his wife didnít murder him). We seriously were considering Misty as a potential mod; she was that impressive.

That came crashing down along with the Comic project when I received a PM from Misty. Now Dimitri was targeting her.

Actually, I need to backtrack a little. Some creepazoid signed on for the first time in a couple years and instantly friended Misty. She was of course a bit, well, freaked. I told her to reject the friendship request and he probably wouldnít be back anyway- he wasnít.

I would be the go to mod with Dimitri as well. This time, he posted on Mistyís visitors page with Mendelssohnís Wedding March with a note that said hint, hint. Yeah, I got the hint all right. I had enough of Dimitri and, this time, I reported his ass.

And everyone from Walt on down was pretty creeped out and rather pissed. I also mentioned his various advances at Maćka and Veronica. We also had to wonder if Dimitri had approached any other women that we didnít know about. Walt would write all three of them. The responses varied from Maćka stating she was fine to Misty being pretty well freaked out. Veronica was pretty well even keeled though siding with Misty, but she kept the evidence for Walt to take a look at.

At this point, I was thinking Dimitri was pretty much screwed. I didnít know what was going on as they would take it to the backroom. It would be awhile before I knew what they had decided on. All I did know was that he wasnít banned or even given a time out. Maybe he got off with a warning. I do know he disappeared for awhile for no apparent reason so maybe somebody did get to him. One thing was for sure; he wouldnít bother Misty or Veronica again when he did return. Heíd flirt with Maćka a little but even there, he kind of backed off. Iím sure he may have feared me a little.

But heíd still PM me asking if Iíd want to write a book with him and odd things like that. I do think he wanted to be liked and I was kind of glad he hadnít been banned after all. When I did become a Super, I would discover that it was decided Dimitri was just a really screwed up kid. Walt did have a man to man talk with him and that was why he disappeared for a while. Like I said, it worked. Dimitri would still make some pretty weird threads and posts but they were all harmless. He even had a drawing of his published in one of LSí newsletters that nobody reads (something that always frustrated Dorothy- like just about everything else).

Eventually, Dimitri would disappear for good. No one knows why he left. Maybe something happened to him or maybe he did something for real. Maybe he wanted to do something else with his life. I can only hope it was the latter.

Actually, weíre all kind of gone now. Misty left the forum not long after the Dimitri incident. I still talk to her on Facebook; sheís doing great. Veronica would go on staff for a while but she too would be sporadic at best as real life took over. Maćka now has one foot in the door and may be about to leave permanently. I talk to her on Facebook too.

And now Iím gone too but weíll go through that later.

In the meantime, a picture of our three girls.



Okay, so itís not them, but they were three women, right?

Misty and the Comic Book Project (and my first trip up as a mod)


I mentioned the recent wave of new blood on the forum, two of whom would soon make staff. As it turned out, the leader of the bunch, Misty, would not be one of the two. It wasnít because we didnít try; she was on both mine and Bo Beepís wish list for mod. Basically, it would be Dimitri and something else I wonít disclose here for the sake of Mistyís privacy (and, no, she didnít do anything wrong if youíre curious).

Misty was, and is, extremely talented. She is not only a talented writer, she is also an excellent artist. Lucky Strikes has a thread for art, much like the one we have here. Misty posted some caricatures of some of our avatars. We were pretty impressed and, pretty quickly, there was talk about setting up a group for a comic project. We would create strips based on the members on the forum. Half of us would be artists and the other half would write. I joined the writers because I canít even draw a circle. As a matter of fact, Maćka and I wrote the one and only script before the project shut down due to lack of interest. Walt set up a private forum for us so we could hash out our art and scripts. He even created a thread that he misnamed. Well, smart me was given moderating powers and I figured Iíd change the name to what the project was actually called. That didnít sit well with Walt and boy would I feel his wrath. It was at the point where I considered leaving the forum entirely (it wouldnít be the last time I felt that way). I also unknowingly postponed my promotion to Global by about two weeks.

I didnít formally quit. I did take a short time out while apologizing to Walt. He sort of apologized back and everything was fine with the world. We got back to working on the comic project.

Only the momentum seemed to be wearing off. The Dimitri incident happened around this time, and there was something else going on with Misty. As the leader and main artist of our motley group, she wasnít there to apply the finishing touches to our first comic. We had a couple drafts but it never got beyond that. Veronica would try to get something together, but everyone had pretty much lost interest. Eventually, Walt buried the forum in an archive that weíll never see. I guess itís Lucky Strikesí version of a black hole.

But we gave it the old school try. Iíd post Mistyís original title drawing which included the avatars involved in the project but Iíd probably be giving too many hints away as to what forum Iím actually talking about.

So Iíll post Mistyís drawings of herself and Veronica instead.

If you recreate an MB version of this on a different platform down the line, be sure to hook us up with a link.

Note to Frown (hope you see this-this is an edit)- Thanks.


I become a Global Moderator anyway.


Things were pretty well back to normal after the brief run in with Walt. We were still working on the comic project and I was busy writing the first script for the strip.

Meanwhile, there were changes afloat among the staff. Global Nick was now Supervisor Nick. Pete had also returned as Supervisor and he assigned me to a new forum. Mick’s promotion ,meanwhile, had left a vacancy in the global ranks.

It would be Nick who would be PMing me. First, he wanted to know if I’d take over the Spin the Bottle challenge temporarily as Captain Ron was stepping down due to real life issues. That temporary gig would prove to be permanent and I would very quickly put my own stamp on the challenge. More on that later.

It couldn’t have been much more than a week when Nick PMed me again. This time it was an offer to move up to Global. Now I would have powers to move posts and threads all over the forums. I’m not sure how it works here at MB, but at LS, forum mods are assigned specific boards and only have moderating powers within those boards. The globals still have their boards but they can also step in on other boards when necessary.

Of course I said yes and now I could go into a new board previously unavailable to me. Not that I missed much. Only one person, another global- Connie, ever used it and that was either to talk about her personal goings on or to get an administrator to issue an award for her poetry challenge. I liked Connie. We became friends, and I still will talk to her occasionally on Facebook. She’s pretty frustrated with LS as of late too.

I did have access to a new toy though. It was the Mod’s Control Panel where you could check IP addresses (Nick used it to nail the Canadian Sock Puppets), as well as a few other things. I would use it a lot as sock puppets were pretty much as normal as washing Batlord’s socks. Okay, maybe a little more normal than that. Anyway, it was something else to try to learn and, if nothing else, I’m an insatiable learner.

I mentioned Captain Ron had to leave us. He found a new job that would take up most of his time so he couldn’t really mod anymore. So, basically, I replaced Captain Ron twice. He would come back as a mentor some months later, but even now, he can’t devote the time he once was able to. He almost certainly would have made Supervisor, and I may have never gotten to that level.

In any event, I was now a Global and had new powers. I would be nailing some sock puppets of my own and, when I did make Super, Nick and I would be obsessed with gathering evidence for the Canadian Sock Puppets that would keep returning. That girl must have loved LS for some perverted reason.

And I was going to use my powers for good (as was that evil?).

MUAHAHAHA!








MUAHAHAHA!
