Didn't Fetal Attraction settle there when s/he left GS, too?


Yeah, that was another poster there.




I always suspected she was a gay man. ;)

:lol:

PS - I DIDN'T POST THERE. :lol:

All this nostalgia prompted me to pay a visit to GS. It looks like Joesitz is gone. No more malapropisms and deliriously pompous declarations like "Nothing can tarnish the grandeur of her persona." :wuzrobbed

Yeah, he only posts every once in a while now. He hasn't been around in a few months. Other classic GS posters such as RealtorGal and Rgirl have also left.

Remember the "Uncensored Board"? I think it was started by some who were banned by other boards for being a bit risque.

Oh yeah, that was one of the other ones. But I steered clear of that board because of all the female/gay male crowd fawning over the male skaters :wideeyes::slinkaway I couldn't stomach it.

I remember one poster was named "buttcheesesoup" if that tells you anything.

I am almost certain that buttcheesesoup was a girl, and that she posts here under a different user name...but then many years have passed since I viewed that board so I could be completely wrong! :lol:

(my bold) :yikes: :slinkaway

I don't mean to offend but anyone that can dream up that name is a little...quirky. :saint:

I occasionally lurk on GS but won't join because I know I would get banned, probably for repeatedly mocking Joesitz, the self-appointed Dick Button of that board.

I don't even lurk at GS any more. There's rarely anything new there that wasn't here first, and I forgot my password, anyway.

*shrug* I always spent most of my time there, and still do to some extent- I'm still overall more comfortable there- but I have to say in the past couple of years I haven't posted/lurked this much on FSU in a long time-probably ever.

ETA: I will say that one thing that has changed is that it seems to have grown more international over a short period of time. I used to remember when the board demographic was strongly North American. Many of the most active posters are now no longer from North America. And maybe as a side consequence, the Asada/Kim fanwars are a little more active.

It was pretty raw but eventually people got tired of it since it just sort of petered out. ;)
No pun intended??:lol:

KWAN!! YU-NA!! MAO!! YAGUDIN!! PLUSHENKO!!

(just trying on the fanaticism to see if it fits. It doesn't. I'm too aware that all these skaters, magnificent though they may be, are just human and all must occasionally snort while laughing. )

I think I'm done lurking there, too. I see that it's the new home of the crazy Johnny-bot that made the old IN board an unpleasant place to be.

I go there sometimes but don't post much. It's a nice enough board and I even like Joesitz. :) I'm pretty comfortable here (now) but I do get smacked down occasionally.

Pun absolutely intended. ;)

Yeah, well that's happened to me there plenty of times :P

But over 11K posts over there vs. less than 2,000 here...despite having been there only two years longer- I think that speaks for itself. ;)

Don't know how to answer that. It was the Uncensored Board (actually I think it was one board that morphed into another board) and sex and skaters and their goods were the main topics. It was pretty raw but eventually people got tired of it since it just sort of petered out. ;) I remember one poster was named "buttcheesesoup" if that tells you anything. Can't find any trace of it now by googling it.

Wow, okay, yeah, I had nothing do with that, obviously :rofl: However, I have to say that it sounds fairly entertaining for at least a skim or something ;)

Katia, the "Brave Young Widow" :saint:

It's a slow week at work so you made me go dig rssif archives for fun and nostalgia....

Click this link if you can handle a blast of Ann Lewis nastiness from the past (if you are the least bit sensitive you've been warned...):

:eek: :rofl: :scream:


There was a lot of squabbling and infighting on all those boards that led to bannings and blockings and member restrictions, which basically killed them all off. Every board had at least one mole who would copy and paste and mail, so it didn't do a whole lot of good to try to limit access, and then the people who were let in would start fighting each other.

I think I got banned at PITI, mainly because I was never banned at FSW in spite of all but insisting that Adrian slap me with the RED SCREEN OF DEATH. :lol: This convinced TwizzlePeach that I was somehow involved in some sort of bizarre relationship with Adrian :lol: and we got into it, mostly on Free Skate World.

I finally asked someone why Adrian never banned me; turns out it was because I never joined MKF :lol:.

Ah, the good old days. What was that board for Pasha fans? Figure Skating Galaxy? Bwahahaha.
OMG I remember that!

And you being in a bizarre relationship with Adrian? :rofl:

I was a member of MKF AND FSW and was not banned by either. :D This was probably because I spent almost all of my time at Laurie's Yagudin discussion board which didn't really have a foot in any of those wars. Although it had an awkward truce (I guess that's what I'd call it) between another board headed by some lady whose name I completely forget...The AYDG was a really nice group of people though. AY just retired and then I moved on.


If memory serves, Sharpie didn't create FSU. Brad Miller, Tara Lipinski's webmaster once-upon-a-time, did after Adrian banned him at FSW. Eventually Sharpie took over FSU when Brad got bored with it, or something like that. It existed for awhile as a Euro-centric ice dancing site, I think. Then FSW changed and died causing FSU to change and flourish.

NJL (...I think Sharpie & Co have done fairly well with it since...;)...)
OMG I remember the time when Sharpie and Co were super-excited to have Gwendal Peizerat say something about porny and innit and put it up on the home page. :lol: It was definitely a Euro-centric ice dance site, and then i$kater took over FSW and a bunch of posters fled here. :P
