    This is when you wish the mods would join the discussion...Sometimes I wonder what they think!

    On a related note -
    My understanding is that there is a lawyer involved, and I keep wondering what kind of lawyer would let his client continue to engage in this behavior - which is really professional & social suicide. I guess a client who is off the chain and having an ongoing public meltdown is lucrative - all those billable hours cleaning up the mess / threatening to sue people, but I sure couldn't do that job and sleep at night. To a degree it seems like enabling / encouraging the train wreck meltdown behavior??? I guess that's why I am not a lawyer ;p.

    You get banned when you call the Mods really ugly names to their 'faces' in PMs. That's an invitation to get booted. That was Thomas' downfall. Don't cry for Thomas- he asked for it. And then turned around and got kicked off The Mane Street, too. The common denominator? Thomas.

    County died- I don't recall him being banned?

    Ambrey was harmless but failed to comprehend her own inability to comprehend. That'll do you in after you drive an entire board to distraction and repeatedly drag threads into waitbutwhataboutme moments. I can think of a few posters now doing a jam up interpretative Ambrey dance. Jam Up.

    The best are those who vanish on the tail of a single, long, tail bone and then resurface sometime later under a new name. It's too simple, really, how adventurous they become in padronizing the establishment, jumping on the bandwagon with a new, high performance name.

    Was Mildot from Connecticut?? If so, I'm much more concerned in retrospect. I imagined him out west somewhere with no neighbors for 100 miles.

    Katarine, I do believe, you are spot on... lol.

    Don't think County got banned, sadly died, on Thanksgiving or something? Holiday season, IIRC, sad really.

    And Ambrey, yes, agree on driving COTH to distraction.... She posted Way. Too Much. How did anyone have that many hours in the day?

    I know one poster, who seems to be a very nice woman, who told me she stayed off of coth for 6 months when Thomas1 chewed her out. She said she cried,and her husband finally said not to let someone on the internet bully her. And she lived pretty near where Thomas1 lives. Yet when he was banned, that poster actually took up for Thomas1. Which makes her a very nice, but sensitive, person.

    i think katarine was pretty spot on on her assessment of the bannings of some cothers.

    I know that when you do cross some of the coth favorites, even when you are correct, you get flamed. but eventually, people find out that you do know what you are talking about. I've seem a good number of bannings since I joined coth. I think most of them were justified, although I think Ambrey was pushed into getting banned, based upon what I read on TOB.

    I'm not an internet expert, not even a little bit, so people tell me they can create an alter when banned, by using a different computer and therefore having a different IP address? But as they say, a leopard cannot change his spots, corny phrase, but a poster cannot change his/her manner and phrases and wording and way of posting...
    THIS. Forensic Linguistics. There was just a big old scandal at the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Orleans, because prosecutors were going online and commenting about ongoing cases. One of there targets hired a forensic linguistics expert (and former FBI agent) who was able to determine the identities of the posters.

    Yes, I did not remember the NO case, but I now remember reading it in the NYTimes. I was a prosecutor for over 28 yrs, but did not have time for the internet, much less commenting on cases. Besides, we did everything out in the open, on camera, in Atlanta.

    When, oh I forget the name, cabsllero? was it? Was posting on a thread I asked someone if that was mildot. Apparently it was as cabsllero, if I got that right, was banned.

    It's hard not to slip up when you are an alter. But alters are allowed as long as you aren't banned. Which makes the secret santa threads fun, and the helping out of people on off topic a good thing if you want to be anonymous.

    No, I believe he was from Ohio. That guy was a freakshow. In both his incarnations.

    I obviously have not been paying attention that much, because while I remember Colin very well, I have no idea who Mildot is. Will have to search for their name.

    And IIRC, was all the Aefvue Farms stuff about Erin's departure? I never quite got that or the "friends /w Barka" references.

    Barka is unrelated to banning. That's someone's alter (I think at one point I knew but now I forget, Coreene?!) I lot of people found it hilariously funny. Lots of jokes in slang talk, referring to boobs as "peaches." It was one of those "humor" alters like Aunt Ester's purse etc.

    IIRC Aefvue was a bunch of people all in on some inside joke where they took roles on a farm and then added that to their user names. I no longer have any recollection of why or when.

    Thank you for dragging my city/state's corrupt politics into this.
    My favorite story that's come up recently (ya know, besides our most recent ex-mayor being charged with 21 counts of bribery, extortion, etc.):

    The husband of an at the time a candidate for the NO City Council seat, who is an assistant city attorney, dropped a loose marijuana joint. It just fell out of his pocket. Like.. What? I still can't get over this. He claims it was "for a client".

    I guess stupidity really ain't rare.

    Didn't Paris Hilton try a similar line a few years ago? The drugs were in her "friend's purse," which she had picked up "by mistake."

    yep, and I wouldn't count County amongst the trolls. Maybe he was an opinionated annoying "I'm always right" kind of poster, but I don't think he ever intended to be a "troll" and somehow I think his IQ was far superior to one of an average troll.

    It's some loooooooongtime poster. I knew at some point. Wait, not Coreene, she's Aunt Ester. It's the poster with a couple of pinto horses. I am totally blanking on her name. I am bad with names tonight?!
