It's pretty ironic that you need us to summarize the events of the past 6 months, you being the Summarizer and all.

Also, welcome back! But man, the brain slugs are sooooo last year.

It is my thirst for summarisation that leads me to make such a request? Also, I changed my pic back to the slugs before I posted this so that people would be all "just like old times!" I thought you of all people would appreciate the trip down memory lane, Joe.

I think gryff is looking for information about a bit further back than that.

Actually, it's times like this that my poor memory really becomes apparent to me. I really have no idea what's happened in the past six months. Try as I might, I can barely remember anything further back than the beginning of July. And I don't just mean stuff that's happened on the forum, I mean anything in my entire life.

*thinks*

oh wait I just remembered I took a trip to San Fransisco; don't remember exactly when that was, but I remember some giant trees.

*wanders off, lost in thought*

let's see, keiffer's gone now. dan too. oh yeah and ally.

Notice the titles of the forum? jeph keeps screwing around with that.

my other joke was something about how joe can't stop living in the past because that would mean acknowledging how old he is but at this point that just kind of seems like shooting fish in a barrel.

summary:
-harry has become more awesome
-mr. hocking has become more old and crotchety
-people actually did show up to tronnocon
-there are a lot of new posters that make a lot of lame threads

i am not as good at summarizing as you, gryff.

wow great summary tommy. I didn't know several of those things (who the hell is jen? and damn, I did not know that about kieffer's brother) but bear in mind that I also didn't realize for like 3 months that jon and rachel were dating.

oh yeah gryff, obsessions and pen are dating.

that sounds a bit like cheating.

Well I don't have a secretary to remind me, so what the fuck else am I supposed to do?

there is a real jen somewhere and the photos posted in that account really were photos of her. it just turned out someone had been stealing them and pretending to be her.
there is probably more to it but i have been out of the loop as well.
oh, i'm posting again. was i not posting when you left? i don't remember. anyway i'm kind of back now, i think.

I think most of us who knew sorta tried to brush the whole thing under the rug because we didn't want to make a spectacle. We have no idea who it was for certain, we have no idea if the persons personality was real or pretend and just the names and faces were a pretense, we have little to no idea why they did it, or if they'll come back.

The most commonly accepted suggestions are that the person was a girl, who wasn't malicious, but also didn't want to be herself and used a false identity. I can understand that,  even I was deceitful when I first got this account (emilio and tommy fucked my shit up! jerks!). Of course, it's possible that the person had different reasons for it altogether and was malicious, but I don't feel comfortable making those sort of assumptions. Aside from some feelings of betrayal for the deception, there was no harm done. Except the naked pictures some of us sent will probably come back to haunt us.

Remember folks, we like turkey as it is. Turkey shouldn't try to be ham. Now that's addressed and very little else can be added, let's move on.

Many people tried to be the new Summarizer. Nobody succeeded.

Things have changed around here huh. I'm glad to see lots of my favourite forumites still posting though. I can't believe you guys kept coming back after I stopped showing up! (Jokes!) Seriously though guys, I checked and there was no "Gryff come back we miss you" thread. What is up.

Oh, also I'm a little disappoionted no one bought powerisers.

And I definitely missed Kieffer getting banned.
God damn why can't really ridiculous things happen to counteract bad stuff happening - I want a summary point to read "And then on Friday it rained squid on the forums and everyone turned out to be eating breakfast at exactly the same time." Something nice and odd and not bad news.

If you think you're a creepy newbie, you're probably not.  Being a creepy newbie takes a certain lack of self-awareness, leading you to think that you are not creepy, you are subversive and everyone around you is immature and a square.
