Is it taboo to ask about Speedracer


Recommended Posts

I took a long break from the board -- real life got busy. I see that Speedracer had been banned. I used to really enjoy her posts and her radical feminism. What happened that got her banned? This board seems like a pretty embrasive "free to be you and me" crowd, so I imagine whatever it was must have been very bad. But can't some trespasses be like Suarez biting another player, where you give the red card and they sit out a few months but are allowed back? I don't know her personally or in real life, but just miss her banter.

Agreed, both are missed --- jules could be  dick (at times), but a funny one and every board needs one.

 

I just reread the Bennett suing Tweedy song parody thread  last month or so -- that was fun read, mostly thanks to Speedracer.

didn't speedracer/sexnap come back at some point after the 1st banning? or was that self-exile?

 

Pretty sure speedracer came back as don draper for a while. Then after the Jules dust-up, she essentially revealed who she was and was promptly banned again. But I could be wrong.

I don't know anything about this controversy, but I'm glad you're back. I enjoy your posts, and this board could use a little more yin to balance the yang! (Shameless borrowing of your metaphor from another thread).

Awww. (((Hug)))

Both Speedracer and Jules have been banned. But the circumstances and reasons for their bans remain shrouded in mystery and locked inside a secret vault. Their presence is definitely missed.

:'-( Jules too? Say it ain't so. Can't we all just get along here in Wilcotopia?

I know SpeedRacer was basically taunting the moderators and got bounced after being on double secret probation.

 

I was not aware that Jules got bounced.

 

I believe we are in the end game portion of this boards life.

With no activity from the band and several month away from Jeff's solo record, we have no unifying force to keep us involved and interested.

The Political stuff should have been quashed from the outset. All it served to do was cause strident opinions and hard feelings.

This board has become a real repository of butthurt lately, and I don't see things changing for the better anytime soon.

I'll post Neko Case photos from tmrw's show. 

 

 

 

 

If that doesn't change things for the better, nothing will.

I think the slide into ennui is irreversible.
