Guess what just got banned from FSWorld?

Tara Lipinski!! I am in shock. can't talk about Tara there? Does Adrian think
we are all stupid? We can still refer to her as you know who or TL. For now
though, I think FSWorld is a complete dump, high school clique that is only for
non-Tara fans.

I wouldn't venture to guess as to what Adrian thinks.

I have been to FSW only a very few times since my posting access got
yanked some months ago, so I'm not up on the latest development... does
Adrian still have his pet circle of courtiers, flatterers, and etc.?

It looks as if the group who seemed to be closest to Adrian are still there,
but not so noticeable these days.

As for the "Tara" banishment... It probably wasn't a good idea for Adrian to do
that, but I can see why the idea occurred to him.  For every 1 non-Tara thread,
you had 3 to 5 Tara threads.  At least one poster was a ***ager who turned
every subject into a Tara thread, and cluttered up the board with threads like
"How Michelle Kwan could be like Tara" and some attempts at humor.

I have a feeling that if Adrian had ignored these Tara fanatics, they probably
would have faded away.  But the threads turned into personal attacks between
the Tara fans and other posters.  Adrian's best bet probably would have been to
warn the individual posters, and ban them later on if he felt it was necessary,
instead of banning the whole subject of Tara.

I suppose I can understand why Adrian chose the action he did, but I don't
necessarily think it was the wisest move he could have made....

Is this the same person who recently posted to another list, in
response to a mild comment from someone that Tara seemed to have been
pushed into becoming a pro, "don't say such ignorant things (about
Tara) unless you know what you are talking about"?

I guess this means we can say ignorant things about Tara if we know
what we are talking about?

Anyway, she's gone from that list.  The moderator seems to have placed
her on moderated status and then she left.

There are rules on that list about Tara vs. Michelle talk, but nothing
about talking about either of them individually.  Maybe Adrian should
look into this.

Ha!  If you know what you're talking about, that's the opposite of ignorant.
Duh.

The same Third Reich kind of movement happens on the AOL boards, as well.  I am
a refugee from there, mostly because evidently any form of debate that doesn't
consist of "I love and support skater X!" gets yanked.  Nice.

That's not true of all AOL boards.  Almost anything goes on the ABC Sports
boards on AOL.

Not everyone will recognize the humor in this post, Brad. Seems a tad like
fanning the flames. <sigh>

failure to reply to your response doesn't indicate agreement - you may just be

Not EVERYONE else -- only a select few who really ticked him
off...including me.

Suuuuure he did, Lee.  Given that the only two witnesses to that
alleged offense are you and Adrian, watch me be cynical.
