Who is GWB?Follow

Ya know I'm content with me being me I do not need to create a new identity but I do this about once a year just to stir the mix around a little bit. Generally speaking I'm not one that speaks poorly of many on the forum because a lot of you are good ol' birds. I'm not sure how many remember Duh, Bonk, Jerry Springher or several others but if you remember any of them you will have found the originator of GWB.

Don't take any thing said personal, unless of course you take such things in an anonymous forum that way.

Happy Holidays and I'm glad I could keep the blood going during the slow times of the last week or so.

Give me a break, I'm new. No idea who any of those puppets were. So who are you?

For the love of my sanity, will someone just tell me?

Since the holidays are over and the end of the year awards for 2004 are still months away people will have long forgotten I existed, and I've got fingers pointed in all directions but mine then my mission is complete.


There is only one of them that I admitted to and that was a long time ago... let's see if anyone can remember.

I kind of remember Bonk only because of the "This thread has been bonked!" line, but I couldn't tell you a thing he actually said. The other two are forgotten to me.

Well, I certainly had no idea. The fact you've been able to keep your identity hidden for so long is impressive.

Not too hard to hide an identity when the references are that obscure.

I'll post the name if no one gets it after a few hours. I think the one he admitted to was about 2 years ago? In the mean time I'm going to go enjoy a nice big cocoa and chess game. Have fun!

Oh the fun of the sock puppet identity game has just begun. I'm not just going to out myself, folks have to work at it. If I can maintain my identity then GWB does not die a quick death.

But not everyone gets annoyed by them. Consider it a game of trivial pursuit. Because really it is trivial.

I know who you are:

-Hi I'm actor Troy McClure. You might remember me from such films as "The Erotic Adventures of Hercules" and "Dial 'M' for Murderousness".-

I don't remember Duh, or Jerry Springher, Bonk was memorable because of "This thread has been bonked!".

Maybe which ever of those sock-puppets that are yours was funny, but I find that just as likely as "The Erotic Adventures of Hercules" being a Grammy winner.

Hey, it could happen, I suppose.

No offense though, just sayin' is all.

Dumbass.

The owner is/was somebody like Mren as I recall.

Bonk would say something that consisted of three or four words and then /bonk at the end of the snippet of what he wrote. Duh was the Dumb and Dumber version of Bonk only he said "Duh!" at people to annoy them. Jerry Springer, as I remember, didn't last long since there was another Jerry that popped up only with a slightly different spelling and the lack of discernable differences between them cancelled them out like matter/anti-matter. Nobody could distinguish between them, so what was the point? He died a quiet lonely death.

GWB has been mildly entertaining for me. It would have been funnier though if he remained in character, adopted the same speech mannerisms that our own heroic RL GWB has, but the cursing, steroidal rage-thing kinda turned it into just another button pusher.

You see, people, if you are going to make a troll/sockpuppet you have to spend some time over on TOT. They know how to do it right because trolls/sockpuppets is what that board consists entirely of and is done professionally. They make a puppet-- generally from a current news event or celebrity --and run with it staying completely in character, but saying funny stuff. They leave their main character to do all the political and religious discussion, blah blah blah so that it is understood when they want a serious talk.

I'm sorry to say, but over here it comes off as being amateurish. But then, if you want to run a troll around, why not go over there and take a lesson from people who know how to do it right? It's one of the things I've learned: don't pi$$ and **** where you eat. And take the play to playground. I've got dozens upon dozens of trolls over there, and am a regular poster, but never bring that stuff here. Why? Because this is me. The RL me. I prefer to maintain a separation between what I do over in other places and what I do here. While you may not agree with me-- and that's fine --it still comes off as a little kid playing dress-up in his daddy's clothes. So while sockpuppets don't annoy me, I just shrug and know that there are others who do it soooo much better elsewhere.

Meh.

That is what the original intent was until it appeared Thundra started taking over the forum. GWB was going to be an on and off character, only pulled in when some comedic relief was needed. But, alas that may never come to be at least not as GWB.

There was no rage. If anyone was in fits of rage it was Skeeter. Of course that is how I saw things. I cussed yes, I said some nasty things I would agree but that was to get the attention of the intended "victims". My bad if the perception was totally different.

Duh!! was created first and was a direct off shoot of the forum bimbo and either you or taco arguing with her. I adopted the posting style of another regular and much of the blame was placed on that poster and not I. Duh!! did end his posts or began his posts with Duh!! though. Bonk was created for the sole purpose of annoying people. Jerry Springher and then Jerry Springonher were one and the same, I just forgot the password for the first one. Jerry was created intially for a single post during the original SOC F whatever squabble and Jerry posted a few too many times to truly be memorable.

Oh well.

I pictured GWB originally taking potshots at Smasharoo and his ilk, riling them up by defending your decisions and then defering any other questions to a second puppet named Rumsfeld who would vigorously attack and deny anybody who disagreed.

BTW. The Stay out! thread was started because someone attempted to hack my e-mail account. Perhaps that is when I got a little carried away. Otherwise I probably would have slipped away quietly to post another day less auspiciously.

Whoopidy doo, you lavished us with threads like "is smash a cross dresser?" and "Have you seen this?" and made witty* remarks about some of the forum regulars. How much of this is not doable under your real name? Answer is none, the reason you choose to do it under 'GWB' is because when people shoot you down for being the moron that you are, you can keep that mental ************ of yours going on by saying to yourself "they're only reacting that way because they don't like sock-puppets".

But there's a problem with that theory buddy, you aren't actually funny. I believe I saw "amusing" used. True, you are amusing.
Only because I got to kill some time wondering if you really type that way, or if you made up words and exhumed old thoughts and ideas on purpose.

Thanks for playing, Rob. How 'bout you wait around a month or so then steal that "Rumsfeld" idea? A month should be a good amount of time for any entertaining thing you might have to say to make it's way on to our forum by somebody that isn't too ************ to express his/her ideas under their real account.

Hey, I found a use for Katie, Katie will serve as my example of somebody that posts moronic drivel, but has the guts do claim what ever she does under her own account.

Ok, go ahead and respond with "you shut up, thundra's lackey! your borish and i think we are all in agreeance about that! oohooh, who am i? no body knows! hahahaha, im a jeenius!"

*Yes, I was being sarcastic

No Skeeter. I'll let the cat out of the bag just to tell you that I don't care about what you or thundra or any of the others think about my charade. ;) I created GWB for my own entertainment and it worked. I've never kept my thoughts or opinions to myself, and I'm not the least bit worried. The jabs at Smash, Thundra and you are what I'd make as Stok, just not so vulgar. Perhaps now though, I'll be a little more colorful in my conversations. :)

Have a nice day.

Yes. Stok = bonk = gwb. If you check the old ubb forum at the date I listed above you can find confirmation if you like.

Sockpuppets suck. I give up. Every time I try to do something about them, nothing good comes of it. You win. Post whatever you want. I'm tired of playing board wanna-be cop.

Edit: by the way, I had nothing to do with the e-mail account attempt. Just in case you were wondering.

Never thought it was you. The attempt was very amatuer, I'm certain if you wanted in it would be harder to detect.
