Me, too, about Senior. He was one of the first people I "met" here and was very nice to me. His posts were usually very well-written and informative. But, if he was going to play games like that, then we are better off without him in the long run. [Frown]

Drugs are more of a gray area, Canuck. Comparable to the levels of "meh" enjoyment we reap from farming and hunting "accidents."

ETA: reap instead of sow. I'm stupid! So stupid!

That's too bad about Senior. I really liked him. I remember well the Senior/Overlord battles about whether Senior served in Vietnam. I took Senior's side, but I'm doubting myself right now.

Perhaps I took his side because early in my time here at snopes someone doubted that I was in the military and it bothered me.

On another note, dofwai is someone who is now deregistered, I see.

Gee, we did our best.

Chimera was posting about some dangerous goings-on in her backyard with that damned trampoline. I really, really hope something bad didn't happen.

Great movie. I just saw it for the first time a little while ago. Marv rules. Too bad he had to die. I have a new role model.

And I had a really interesting discussion about whether or not Marv should be considered a "superhero."

If it makes you feel better, I'm pretty sure Marv will be appearing in "Sin City 2." Some of the stories used in that movie occur chronologically before the events in the first movie.

Yeah, he had bought himself a new suit, then shortly after that he was deployed, and wearing a totally different kinda suit. But, that's been ages. He should be back now. Why isn't he back?

Per Dan's list - there are some familiar names on there... made me think of some more that are gone, but it's been ages. A lot of newer folks wouldn't know them, like Fermifan, and Aeryn Sun. VAA... I wish it would come back, that was fun.

You just missed the date of the post you saw [Wink]

I registered when I lived in Barcelona as "Jaime Vargas". But after I was fired, and lost my business email, I could not retrieve the password to that account so I opened another one as "Jaime Vargas Sánchez" and let the old one die.

Having an invalid email address is the problem that got me booted off, too. It was an oversight on my part, and snopes was kind enough to reactivate my account after I explained the problem. It's definitely a good idea to check your profile periodically to make sure all the information is accurate.

And if you can't get registered, you can email snopes through the main UL page. That's how I got my issues straightened out.
