Like, there's something weird about the safety and comfort of routine. Even though this message board is outclassed by social media I would still genuinely miss this place if it was gone. The old curmudgeon in me loves the charm of old school Internet life where people could talk shit anonymously and your every move wasn't watched and meticulously archived so it can be used against you 10 years from now.

"Um yes excuse me candidate Merkler, Debbie Townsend with the New York Post, can you explain to me why you're a Lady Banned Son of Switzerland?"

Hell I don't even remember the inside joke that resulted in the "Lady Banned Son of Switzerland" rank for Merk anymore. Maybe Ho does...
A normality test:
+++ATH
If you are no longer connected to the internet, you need to apply more wax to your modem: it'll make it go faster.
If you find this funny, you're a nerd.
If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

It was something to do with a dream Brian had.

I'm sure there are many other quotes that would disqualify Merk from any public office that could be dug up.

I forget the exact post but I believe either Brian or I had a dream where someone said I was a "Son of Switzerland" and I think at the time that post was made we were joking around that someone (maybe Chad) was "lady banned" because they were trying to slam some nann but kept striking out.

Brian combined the two and now here we are today with my little banner!

God damn, foreign announcers are the best IMO. American commentary is so shitty and so corporate that no one can get hype. I would pay money to have an unedited audio feed of the players on the field with no commentary. The amount of shit talking on the field has to be God damn brilliant and it's a shame that the league has to bow down to sponsors and present a dishonest image that the players are all upstanding goody-two-shoes

Shit like that has to be going on *constantly* and I would love to hear it. I love watching sincere anger.

I think it's been at least a month since I've checked in here. I'm glad someone's still getting some use out of this.

I still need to fix registrations (not that I imagine there's too many people trying to sign up). I think MonMotha set them to admin approval a few months ago. We'd probably be overrun by bot posts otherwise. Looks like there's over 100 registrations waiting for approval. I doubt any of them are real.

I also got some report about there being malware on the site. I should probably fix that. I guess don't post credit card or social security numbers in the meantime.

Maybe I'll try to get back in the habit of checking in here again. It's nice to see some familiar folks shitposting outside of Zuccspace.

In the meantime, I'll leave you this little nugget to show I actually read what was posted:
http://indyddr.com/forums/viewtopic.php ... 8c4#p85472

It was your dream, Merk...and it didn't have anything to do with Chad.

"Anyway, Brian banned me because it was a lady who sent him the PM"

I laughed out loud when I read that just now. God damn did I have a lot of time to post in 2011.


Man fuck Facebook, let's post here! Like in the old days before the internet got all weird and memey.

I went back a started reading this thread from where Brian linked in his latest post and god DANG did we post a lot back then. There's some good and funny shit on there, we had so many more people post back then even though that number doesn't compare to how active things were back in the early 2000s. Facebook did kind of ruin the messageboard which is a shame, there was a lot of charm to messageboardin' back in the day!

IndyDDR is basically gonna be my epitaph when I expire from this world. The masses will remember me from my Facebook page but my true homies will know me from my scribbles on the indydidders
