BWW Color Code Alert System
Posted: 11/26/07 at 11:01pm

Time to bring this baby back... I believe the apology thread falls under the Salmon catagory, but since the last several pages seem to have been deleted (black alert), I can't be sure.

What's the story there?

It might have been the greatest moment in the Board's history. Brendan Stryker was a popular poster because his avatar was totally hot in a corn-fed kinda a way and he was just dumb enough to still be charming.

There was another poster (Beergoggles, was it?) who was 'friends' with him and was told that Brendan was killed in a car accident(tractor accident?). Hideous, right? But the more the story went on, the clearer it became that there was no Brendan Stryker. Someone just found random pics of some random guy on the internet and used them for sock puppetry. The ensuing "memorial" threads were some of the best work on this or any other message board.

Feel free to correct what mistakes I may have made in the story.

Also, did Izzy and her baby die in childbirth? Or was that just my wish in life?

'Brendan' had sent me several PM's describing things he wanted to do to me...

He made everyone's pants get a little tighter around here.

'He made everyone's pants get a little tighter around here.'

True. But when you think about who could have been behind that, it makes me want to take a vow of celibacy.

Izzy's baby definitely survived, even though he was a preemie.

And I believe it was Beergoggles who was crushing hard on Brendan.

A lot of people thought goggles was a sock puppet also. For my part I think he was (is) a genuine poster who got taken in by the Stryker sock.

....but the world goes 'round

Robbie, I prefer to think he looked exactly like his picture, and I'm sticking with that.

Someone now needs to do a Google picture search on him (and maybe N2N) to see who they really are...

Water and vinegar notwithstanding, this thread is getting off topic.

How about a new code for this one? I'm thinking:

I did save the Izzy's Baby page in a document. Tres Cray-cray even in hindsight and distance.

And wow, not even putting up the pretense of being from Ukraine... or Russia.... or just Soviet Russia.

My favorite part of the life of a sock is when the "voice" begins to unravel.

The character that was haphazardly created--usually by someone driven by a lot of OCD and not an ounce of playwriting or character-writing skills--begins to lose the few distinctive characteristics of the initial postings and just starts to sound like the same-old, same-old of the voice of the original sicko poster.

This is usually followed by a full-fledged fuchsia, complete with crimson, jaundice, magenta and, ultimately, nan or blackness.

Angry Deer, Robbie.

It wasn't stupid, it just wanted revenge.
