Remember Jeff S?



  • I was reading some forum archives from 2008 and I kept seeing posts from this guy:

    @Jeff S said:

    Just claiming something is a "joke" doesn't mean you are not responsible if it is distasteful or offensive; consider someone making racist comments (which morbius's stuff bordered on) and then saying "hey everyone, no big deal, I was joking, it's ok!"  

    Come on, morbius, you're better than that.  You've shown you can be funny without resorting to "jokes" like that. 

    Ender -- please don't bother replying his comments in this thread, but definitely report posts like this if it becomes a consistent problem.



    Can anyone give me some context? Was Jeff S the American version of Nagesh?



  • Jeff S was a moderator who briefly made an attempt to "clean up" the forums. This mostly meant deleting every single no-no word or any comments which weren't 100% on-topic.

    He gave up after about 2 weeks, I believe. I can only assume he took his own life out of shame.

    I have no memory of that...

    Every tag-cloud deletion is like a sci-fi reboot, or a anime series being ported to a new medium. There's always some retconning and minor changes that occur. Some people are outside of the main cannon and are relatively unaffected by it. Some others are so entwined with the plot that their very personality, essence and memories are altered.

    I guess you also don't remember that you used to be a black, Native American, mid-operation tranny gay lesbian (you were both gay and lesbian, but Vishnu help anyone who called you bisexual).

    That makes sense regardless.

    That explains the dreams.

    I do. He deleted half of the posts made by me and pstorer. (And I think 99% of the posts of He Who Shall Not Be Named, although he might have been vanquished by the time Jeff S came onto the scene.)

    Oh, and his wife was a "Canadian psychiatrist", a fact he mentioned frequently. He often used this is a justification for trying to psychoanalyze me and pstorer and others and figure out what made us act the way we did.

    He was kind of insane, now that I think of it.



  • I looked up the thread that was from. The really funny part is that was basically an in-joke among the people from IRC. ender is from Slovenia (or Slovakia..) and back when we had an IRC channel we would tease him for being from a poor country built by alcoholic nomads, which is honestly just the truth. He would tease back and it was all in good fun because ender wasn't some pathetic drama queen who couldn't take (or make) a joke.

    So anyway, that's what Jeff S flipped out over. He considered making fun of Slovenia (or was it Slovakia) bordering on racism..
