I've got a facebook account. Right now I don't really do anything with it, but I have toyed with the idea of crafting a fake persona through Facebook and other websites. A sort of better me, if you understand. A me that (modestly enough) posts udates about the chartiable activities he participates in, rescues cats from trees, and is generally nice. This chap would then show up on the first page of search engines results.

And, yes, I suppose it can be tough for newbies to feel like insiders, but I've never kept up with the local gossip either.

And for the record, Keys, I think of you as a regular - I'm even coming up with a psych profile for you concerning what it means to be fdsaf3 instead of asdfa3.

EDIT: Also for the record, I have only met 3 people here face to face. Doesn't stop me from giving the rest of them shit on a near daily basis.

Wow...I've been here 10 years and I don't know what any of that means.

The Women's Circle, basically, but, on the other hand, most things that happen pass me by these days. For instance, there appears to be some kind of treasure hunt going on that has caused an unprecedented mass influx of new registrations, but exactly what it is I'm not sure. Seems to be causing quite a stir, though.

LOL, that was a joke obviously...but I just put 2 and 2 together. Or rather, something that was common knowledge to me and something weird SBX said a week or two ago. If they want to keep it secret, whatever, but congrats to both of you.

On the callous side, I feel, making jokes like that. Consider those board members that would be in-laws of Sinistrum.

I can't think of anyone more deserving in the one case, or more capable of handling him in the other. But fortunately, it seems they have been spared that much.

Um, people. Definitely NOT B and Sini. Definitely not. LOL

fdsaf3, sorry I made you feel like an outsider! I felt the same way too, at one point. To make you feel more welcome, do we have a nick for you? Cause I had to c&p your name, and that's just not cool!

I've suspected Sini and Gonzo had a secret relationship for years. This all but confirms it.

Heh. Nope. But thanks for playing.

Back to the moral narsicism thing, I can think of no greater illustration of it than the South Park episode involving the hybrids and the smug cloud.

I like it a lot, yes and no, I'm not on fb. Or rather, I once had to make a profile to see a friend's pics but after that haven't visited once. I think I even forgot the password... pretty sure I didn't use a variationof my "usual" one either.

I'm not complaining or anything, just pointing out that with respect to the references to "old guard", new members such as myself could have a pretty different view of how this community functions.

I also just want to say before someone gets frustrated with me that I understand the nature of privacy and am not saying all information about people's romantic lives should be gossiped about here for all to see.
well... some of them you just can't help but notice if you're on the non-wot at all - there was an actual proposal on the non board a while ago... very hard to miss. Others are a bit more low-key, and some you really might not know unless you want to read through the last decade's worth of archives or happen to meet people in person.

I'm gonna just assume that its Firseal and Birgitte that are now a couple...until proven otherwise.
Dav, you don't know because you don't keep up on FB. Slacker.

I've been reading it sorta phonetically as Fud-Saf-Three, if that's any help.
