I was just telling someone this story today - so I wanted to share my experience with all of you.

A long time ago (1996-2001, occasionally now), I use to go on IRC chat on Efnet.  I made some friends.  Sometimes I made enemies and I couldn't understand why.  Sometimes I did understand why.  This is one of those cases where I understood why that I was cast as a black sheep :-)

I use to go in a channel to chat about Genesis music called #paperlate .  I was there for several months (early - mid 1997).  Anyway, there was a couple from New Zealand who would also come in the channel (to make it simple to declare their unity, they shared a screen name with "mouse" in it - I believe it was "allinamouse").  The owner of the room (Shawn) would also talk frequently in the channel, and he was all right to strike conversation with.  Unfortunately, Shawn did fall in love with a girl in New Zealand - this was with the wife who used that "allinamouse" screen name. 

The conversations between that woman and Shawn were turning into bizarre "i love you" messages in the channel.  I think at one time they did visit each other, and I was explained that this relationship was now not just a friendship, but a "romantic" relationship.  However, her husband didn't know they were doing this.  So this went on for a while, before I got tired of seeing the environment of the chat turn into crap.  One day her husband came on and I blew the whistle on his wife and Shawn.  I was fed up.  Her husband obviously didn't know anything about what has happening between his wife and Shawn, but I was told thank you for my help in telling him what was really going on.  

Around some days later, I get a chat request on ICQ.  It was with a whole slew of the regulars from that #paperlate channel.  According to Shawn, I violated his trust and stuck my nose into something that was nobody else's business.  He was very smart in trying to manipulate the situation as being a victim, because he was the one who was going behind the married guy's back.  It was probably the most rememberable crucifixions I had on the internet.  I didn't know whether to laugh or cry about it :-)


Eventually other people split from the channel and created their own.  I joined up with them.  Here is some of the fallout from that:  http://groups.google.com/group/alt.music.genesis/browse_frm/thread/...

joining weezer.com was probably the worst thing i've done on the internet.

however, my actions resulted in the creation of, imo, one of the better videos on the internet

 

my stint as "this is a gay man" was likely the peak of my internet-a****** abilities.

 

the encyclopedia dramatica article about him is one of the most funniest things i read on there.
