    I don't know if she just wasn't around to shut it down or if she has a better sense of humor about herself than anyone gave her credit for, but IIRC, that thread was open for a lot longer than I thought it would be. I remember reading through it live and thinking it would get closed at any minute. I think a bunch of the old FT posters now go to CPMCOG. I recognize a few of the old names, but I'm not sure how busy that board is these days. When FT closed, it was a busy place.

    I lurked at MBTV for a long time, from S3 onward. Actually, I lurked everywhere because I didn't know how to just jump into discussions between people who already knew each other pretty well. I would still read the DC boards for years after PP had started up, but they were lame after all the Porners left. Reading through this thread, I've been trying to remember what made me finally post at PP, and I can't recall what it was, but it had to have been sometime in S5? I think it was even after Mandy tried to post as Sunchild and got her ass handed to her. Maybe I read that and thought, "Well, nothing I have to say can incite that much board rage, so what the hell?"

    Jerry D posting at PP to defend himself was one of my favorite fandom moments ever. Maybe only second to Sarah's trophy posting when the finale spoilers got posted. And Is totally deserves to feel entitled about her role in the Creek fandom and for her part (no matter how small) in winning the P/J war for us.

      IIRC, it seemed like Wing and Glark just stopped caring after they decided to shut down the FT forums and were maybe a little lax. Also, the stuff about what a cunt Wing was showed up ALL over the board, not just that one thread, including a lot of other craziness I no longer remember. Eventually they just shut down the forums earlier than they had planned and I think the Wing thread probably played a part. I dug up this thread from fandom wank that chronicles everything and some of the best stuff was posted on various other threads.

      I don't remember why I started posting at PP, because I lurked all over the place and have never posted anywhere else ever, but I can't remember how long I lurked before posting. I definitely started lurking after the exodus, maybe just before season 5 started? I wish we still had old PP threads.

        Stop sending me down the rabbit holes of mem'ry! Seriously, y'all are evil for posting links to those old threads. Productivity fo the day is now officially shot all to HELL.

        But I do love hearing about how long y'all lurked, and why you started to actually post. That's nice.

          Some of the former FTers are at Snarkfest. I still lurk there and very occasionally post, but it's not super busy.

          The last days of FT, with that Wing Chun thread, were fantastic. I'm pretty sure we had a bit of a running commentary in one of the sub-forums about it.

          Who is this?

          re: twop's mass exodus

          I think one poster put it best when s/he described the modding there as "attack-dog mob mentality." The pandemonium of the Buffy forums and couple/character wars, the ever-increasing bitterness/decrease in quality of the recaps (and not just Buffy's) led to much unhappiness from posters, and ultimately Sars and Wing went nutty with the banning. Many just got fed up and left by their own accord (like me). I think the final straw was when they banned Fox-whats-her-name (the lesbian) for speaking out, who was like, their #1 poster (they had user rankings back in the day) and wrote some of their recaps.

          There used to be a whole thread on the downfall of MBTV/TWoP on the "Pacey Porn" boards but sadly, it's no longer up. That place was hella bitter and hee-larious. They coined the "Wing Cunt." There's still lots of resentment out there, e.g.:

          You will get loads more if you google "twop" "bitter" "joyless" and/or "sucks."

          Old-school mbtv/twop users, feel free to back me up. Because you know she's gonna read this.

            No idea. Lurker, I'd guess.

            We did not coin Wing Cunt, I don't think. Maybe we did? But we used to call her that for YEARS before we even left MBTV because we heard that there was some sort of anti-Wing post-a-thon at Hissyfit (when it had forums like in the 90s and shit) and Glark spent Wing's entire birthday party or their anniversary in their office deleting people calling her a cunt. And diesel and I thought that was soooo bizarre that you'd (1) really give that big of a shit if someone called you a cunt, particularly strangers on a message board and (2) that he'd spend time doing that instead of being with his wife on her birthday or their anniversary or whatever it was. I mean, enjoy your event and come back to the mean posters later. Like, your entire web business will not collapse if you get called a cunt a bunch of times in one evening, you know? So we always called her Wing Cunt after we heard that story because we thought that was funny. And we were super mean.
            Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

              Plus, she was/is clearly kind of a cunt.

                No joke, that might've been the first time I heard the word "cunt"!

                    We totally pushed our dark liberal agenda on Laa! I also had no idea she and Fox were basically children. Who lets their kids on the Internet like that?! Your parents are to blame.

                      Hah, whatEVah! That education is INVALUABLE and I will cherish it always.

                      I really do wish the Wayback Machine could delve into all the old forums. I'd love to see how my posts have deteriorated over the past fifteen years.

                        jeez - I remember how shocked I was when I found out how old Laa and Fox were. Obviously, I've totally wasted my life.

                        And the Sars and Wing stuff? I'm surprised how much of that I sort-of remember from MBTV & FT, and Hissyfit. Didn't Glark use to IM Wing even though he was just in the next room?
                        Can't remember my login for the Ranch - some old email addy I haven't used in years.

                        Jerry and his disciples at the restaurant. yikes. soo creepy.

                          I guess I always block out JerryD specifics because I still don't want to believe that kind of creepiness exists. Apple Bonkers who are always hateful and can't form real sentences are one thing, but the JerryDs and Padawans are frightening because they try to justify their raging sexism/misogyny.

                          Didn't Glark use to IM Wing even though he was just in the next room?
                          I remember thinking that + Glark deleting Wing's "happy cuntday!"s = whoa, sad marriage.

                            I'm so guilty of many of the things I used to judge Wing for! I have totally IM'd Mr. Is from another room. Ha! And now that I work home alone? I'm so guilty of working in my pajams before showering (like I am right now).

                            That said? Mr. Is would probably just laugh if someone posted that I was a cunt like 500 times. Unless I was crying or something.

                              I guess I assumed that he did it so she wouldn't see it on her b-day? Not that she made him do it, but that he was trying to protect her so it wouldn't ruin her bday party. But I might be remembering it totally wrong.

                              I've never IMed mr.o, but I will send him an email if he's upstairs trying to get the kids to bed, so I won't be yelling up there and waking them up. Just to see if it's taking so long that he wants me to come up and take the next shift. They still won't go to sleep on their own. If either of us had a texting plan, we would just do that instead.

                                Ah, that would change things totally if he was doing it without her knowledge. I imagined she saw the posts and locked herself in the bathroom and said her birthday was ruined.

                                I'm so guilty of many of the things I used to judge Wing for!
                                Word! Now I know it's not sad marriage, it's just marriage. I text the dude when he's in the man cave and I am in the...rest of the house.
