WoT Noms

Submit them here please.  Wall o'text posters of the decade.  Any and all internet forums.  Thank you.


  1. I'll start the bidding, I mean nomming, with the posters mentioned on this page:

    LeeHere Absent, Carole Franizzi, Scylla Rhiadra, Cale Vinson, Seicher Rae, Just Jordan JJ SCIF Princess

  2. Ima, Reasonable Doubt, Charlemagne Allen

  3. I just like saying "Femmy WoT noms." Makes me want tea and a bickie.

  4. I'm not a femmy...does this mean I lose my nom?

  5. A forum emmy (femmy) is an award, not a type of person, so no, you do not lose your nom.

  6. "Harry Lubcke, a pioneer television engineer and the third Academy president, suggested 'Immy,' a term commonly used for the early image orthicon camera. The name stuck and was later modified to Emmy, which members thought was more appropriate for a female symbol."

  7. Nah, SR doesn't belong on the list. She's dead and gone, as is Leia. I can't think of any worthwhile WoT posts either posted, just nonsense with whats-her-face. Carole, Scylla both posted WoT routinely and of the names I know, those 2 are most deserving. I've only seen your WoT here, Lee, but seeing it here I firmly believe you deserve to be on the list, if not at the head. The other folks you mentioned I don't know. I don't think massive cut-and-paste posts should count alongside actual typing.

    "L" isn't a part of SL other than the few blogs, like yours, that I still read for now.

    I think my personal fave for the "honor" would be Carole.

    (Heh, my secret word to post this is "antspant")

  8. She is on the list...and she just happens to the leader of the list too...

  9. Never said "she" wasn't, although your lack of antecedent for your pronouns leaves doubt as to who or what you are talking about (not unusual for you). Lee and I have been discussing the WoT Femmys for a few threads now.

  10. Just Jordan can type up a storm....Cale Vinson, doesn't mind the odd long paragraph.

    But for sheer length...often followed by 129 is hard to look past our own Lee Here.

    Sometimes it takes me 3 re-reads....and a few days to carefully consider each question.
    Just as I am about to respond to question No 74...the prolific Ms Absent has issued, 6 more WoT Blog entries.

    I nominate Ms Absent, on the grounds of relentless energy.

    ( Not that, that is a bad thing.)

  11. @Orfeu: If what she posts here is typical of what she posts on forums, I would have to agree! She's all that and a bag of chips! Prolific for sure!

    I'm operating at a deficit here because 99% of my knowledge is coming from the old GDF and there it was Carole (then Scylla)for routinely long posts.

  12. PS: She lives in Seattle, doesn't she? That could explain it. Fogged/rained in with buckets of good coffee, what else are you gonna do but type?

  13. Well, Lee that was kind of rhetorical but, speaking personally if I'm hyped up on coffee I find it difficult to read. Perhaps you become accustomed to it though. I mean, fogged/rained in, needing physical activity due to caffeine buzz, even I can think of more things to do than type! Alone or with a partner! :)

  14. "Seattle ranks as nation's best-educated big city"

    "Seattle is the most literate, best educated city in the country."

    "Seattle has the largest percentage of library card holders in the nation (80%) and spends double the national average on books every year."

  15. "Seattle is the nation’s 'most active' city, according to Men’s Health magazine."

  16. I love Seattle. Been there several times when I was a Coaster. Tea has caffeine. A tea drinker in Seattle is just weird, like un-American or sumpin. You must have gotten to by some of those pinkos in Canada. Tea. harumph

    And I'm partial to rain and fog, too, which is another reason I adore San Francisco.

  17. Home: Kansas City, Devon, San Francisco, Seattle. Plenty of tea. Few McCarthys.

  18. *you must have been gotten to...

    (correcting purposefully bad English is kinda interesting)

  19. Heh, gotcha beat on "homes"

    Devon as in UK?

  20. Yes. UK.

    Cities or homes? I've had multiples in each city. (And I left off Nottingham, Lakenheath and Wiesbaden. I was really young.)

  21. I'm an Air Force brat. (And my Mother was a limey.)

  22. City, in order of education rank

    1. Seattle, WA 51.3
    2. San Francisco, CA 51.0
    3. Raleigh, NC 49.7
    4. Washington, DC 47.7
    5. Austin, TX 45.1
    6. Atlanta, GA 42.9
    7. Minneapolis, MN 41.1

    Washington DC area

    2 months each Ireland and kinda lived there kinda just long stays

  24. I spent a semester at the University of Cordoba in Spain.

  25. I visited Dublin, Ireland as a week-long tourist and loved it. I hope to go back.

  26. Spain! Fun!

    Heh, I'm trying to set some kind of record for the number of Universities attended without actually getting a degree. You can probably spot the university towns in the list, if there was one there I took at least a semester. I've been toying with taking something from UNK just to add another to the list! I think it is a hobby or something.

  27. I came really really close to moving to Ireland instead of back to Cinci but it was just too daunting at the time (still is!). I love Ireland...more of that rainy, cool, foggy, green kind of thing like Seattle.

  28. Gotta love a good atmospheric city.

  29. I prefer the countryside(s) to the cities. Dublin is great, although a bitch to navigate through. Ireland in general is a bitch to navigate. But I loved the smaller hamlets and the rough and ruggedness of the west and north coasts. I think I channel "Heeeeeeathclifffffff" or something.

  30. Does WoT include 1000 short, 1-4 sentence contiguous posts?

  31. How about a cut and paste of an epic flame war insult that is nearly as long as your forearm?

    You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we
    say in Texas, you couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions
    printed on the heel. You are a canker, an open wound. I would rather
    kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You took your last vacation in
    the Islets of Langerhans.

    You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little
    worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a
    cad, and a weasel. I take that back; you are a festering pustule on a
    weasel's rump. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench,
    a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

    I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same
    species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at
    the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut.
    Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are
    a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. You are a technicolor yawn.
    And did I mention that you smell?

    You are a squeaking rat, a mistake of nature and a heavy-metal bagpipe
    player. You were not born. You were hatched into an unwilling world
    that rejects the likes of you. You didn't crawl out of a normal egg,
    either, but rather a mutant maggot egg rejected by an evil scientist
    as being below his low standards. Your alleged parents abandoned you
    at birth and then died of shame in recognition of what they had done
    to an unsuspecting world. They were a bit late.

    Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting
    to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a
    nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able
    to access it ever so much more rapidly. If cluelessness were crude
    oil, your scalp would be crawling with caribou.

    You are a thick-headed trog. I have seen skeet with more sense than
    you have. You are a few bricks short of a full load, a few cards short
    of a full deck, a few bytes short of a full core dump, and a few
    chromosomes short of a full human. Worse than that, you top-post. God
    created houseflies, cockroaches, maggots, mosquitos, fleas, ticks,
    slugs, leeches, and intestinal parasites, then he lowered his
    standards and made you. I take it back; God didn't make you. You are
    Satan's spawn. You are Evil beyond comprehension, half-living in the
    slough of despair. You are the entropy which will claim us all. You
    are a green-nostriled, crossed eyed, hairy-livered inbred
    trout-defiler. You make Ebola look good.

    You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid,
    nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an
    ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with
    you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in
    a land that reality forgot. You are not ANSI compliant and your markup
    doesn't validate. You have a couple of address lines shorted together.
    You should be promoted to Engineering Manager.

  32. cont'd from above:

    Do you really expect your delusional and incoherent ramblings to be
    read? Everyone plonked you long ago. Do you fantasize that your
    tantrums and conniption fits could possibly be worth the $0.000000001
    worth of electricity used to send them? Your life is one big
    W.O.M.B.A.T. and your future doesn't look promising either. We need to
    trace your bloodline and terminate all siblings and cousins in order
    to cleanse humanity of your polluted genes. The good news is that no
    normal human would ever mate with you, so we won't have to go into the
    sewers in search of your git.

    You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and
    obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living
    emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a
    loathsome disease, a drooling inbred cross-eyed toesucker. You make
    Quakers shout and strike Pentecostals silent. You have a version 1.0
    mind in a version 6.12 world. Your mother had to tie a pork chop
    around your neck just to get your dog to play with you. You think
    that HTTP://WWW.GUYMACON.COM/FUN/INSULT/INDEX.HTM is the name of a
    rock band. You believe that P.D.Q. Bach is the greatest composer who
    ever lived. You prefer L. Ron Hubbard to Larry Niven and Jerry
    Pournelle. Hee-Haw is too deep for you. You would watch test patterns
    all day if the other inmates would let you.

    On a good day you're a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are
    deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of
    wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted.
    Spammers look down on you. Phone sex operators hang up on you.
    Telemarketers refuse to be seen in public with you. You are the source
    of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go.
    May you choke on your own foolish opinions. You are a Pusillanimous
    galactophage and you wear your sister's training bra. Don't bother
    opening the door when you leave - you should be able to slime your
    way out underneath. I hope that when you get home your mother runs
    out from under the porch and bites you.

    You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock.
    You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted
    boggish foot-licking half-twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You
    gormless crook-pated tosser. You bloody churlish boil-brained clotpole
    ponce. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You cockered
    bum-bailey poofter. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You
    dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill. May your
    spouse be blessed with many bastards.

    You are so clueless that if you dressed in a clue skin, doused yourself
    in clue musk, and did the clue dance in the middle of a field of horny
    clues at the height of clue mating season, you still would not have a
    clue. If you were a movie you would be a double feature;
    _Battlefield_Earth_ and _Moron_Movies_II_. You would be out of focus.

  33. cont'd from above:

    You are a fiend and a sniveling coward, and you have bad breath. You
    are the unholy spawn of a bandy-legged hobo and a syphilitic camel.
    You wear strangely mismatched clothing with oddly placed stains. You
    are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just knowing that
    you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go
    away. You are jetsam who dreams of becoming flotsam. You won't make
    it. I beg for sweet death to come and remove me from a world which
    became unbearable when you crawled out of a harpy's lair.

    It is hard to believe how incredibly stupid you are. Stupid as a stone
    that the other stones make fun of. So stupid that you have traveled
    far beyond stupid as we know it and into a new dimension of stupid.
    Meta-stupid. Stupid cubed. Trans-stupid stupid. Stupid collapsed to
    a singularity where even the stupons have collapsed into stuponium.
    Stupid so dense that no intelligence can escape. Singularity stupid.
    Blazing hot summer day on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one
    minute than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. It cannot
    be possible that anything in our universe can really be this stupid.
    This is a primordial fragment from the original big stupid bang. A pure
    extract of stupid with absolute stupid purity. Stupid beyond the laws
    of nature. I must apologize. I can't go on. This is my epiphany of
    stupid. After this experience, you may not hear from me for a while.
    I don't think that I can summon the strength left to mock your moronic
    opinions and malformed comments about boring trivia or your other
    drivel. Duh.

    The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped
    away most of your of what you wrote, because, well ... it didn't
    really say anything. Your attempt at constructing a creative flame was
    pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together a bunch of insults among a
    load of babbling was hardly effective... Maybe later in life, after
    you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more
    success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal"
    people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering.
    But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this
    world who find these things to be difficult. If I had known that this
    was true in your case then I would have never have exposed myself to
    what you wrote. It just wouldn't have been "right." Sort of like
    parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the
    emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a
    demand on you.

    P.S.: You are hypocritical, greedy, violent, malevolent, vengeful,
    cowardly, deadly, mendacious, meretricious, loathsome, despicable,
    belligerent, opportunistic, barratrous, contemptible, criminal,
    fascistic, bigoted, racist, sexist, avaricious, tasteless, idiotic,
    brain-damaged, imbecilic, insane, arrogant, deceitful, demented, lame,
    self-righteous, byzantine, conspiratorial, satanic, fraudulent,
    libelous, bilious, splenetic, spastic, ignorant, clueless, EDLINoid,
    illegitimate, harmful, destructive, dumb, evasive, double-talking,
    devious, revisionist, narrow, manipulative, paternalistic,
    fundamentalist, dogmatic, idolatrous, unethical, cultic, diseased,
    suppressive, controlling, restrictive, malignant, deceptive, dim,
    crazy, weird, dyspeptic, stifling, uncaring, plantigrade, grim,
    unsympathetic, jargon-spouting, censorious, secretive, aggressive,
    mind-numbing, arassive, poisonous, flagrant, self-destructive,
    abusive, socially-retarded, puerile, and Generally Not Good.

    I hope this helps...

  34. This is so true that it is hilarious too...

  35. Air Force brat? Lakenheath? Mother a Limey?

    Pep (now understands why you laughed a little embarrassedly about the quick-release lingerie.)

  36. @ Ima.
    I loved this one...
    "You should be promoted to Engineering Manager."

    Wow...this dude pulls no punches, huh?

  37. @Orfeu: Yeah, that was just life changing brutal ;).

    I liked this one: You wear strangely mismatched clothing with oddly placed stains.

    Considering how important stain placement is, I hardly imagine a self-esteem recovery after that verbal bullet.

  38. @Ima
    Yeah the dude has a point...stain yeah...stain placement....very relevant...and er....(voice trails off to silence)
