I am writing this blog because I witnessed firsthand JudgementDay’s (hereon referred to as JD) self destruction. I didn’t know him that well, just well enough to know he was a well respected poster.
I logged on late Friday night and noticed JD had posted a thread titled “Help me get banned”. This aroused my curiosity so I decided to check it out. JD wrote that he was trying to get himself banned but CBS wouldn’t cooperate so he posted this thread asking other posters to warn him so he could get banned. He filled every post with profanity and insults to the other posters on the thread so it was obvious he was serious about it. I turned to page 2 of the thread and found all his posts had been deleted. I then went to check his profile and it was gone.
I have heard other posters classify JD as crazy or nuts but it was obvious he held their respect. I would classify him as cultured and borderline eccentric. JD was intelligent and educated. Some of his posts would challenge your intelligence.
One can only wonder why JD chose to sever ties with this board. I noticed that earlier in the week he suggested he would be leaving us for a while. The real irony is not the tragic way that JD went out, but that he was sporting his John Belushi avatar when he did. Fare Thee Well JD!
