Speaking of ozma, I got a couple questions lol.

A) whats the story behind the ozma porn? Was it just her getting doxxed or was there a funny story behind that discovery?

B) why ozma fat? Having seen said ozma porn, she didn't look particularly fat. Was that just goons being dicks because it got under her skin?

YOU'RE WELCOME

Because on the internet then, and still now but nowhere near as bad, being a woman was automatically bad.

And being a woman who didn't look like they had just escaped a concentration camp meant you were fat, especially if the person calling you fat was a fat neckbeard.

Not defending the past stuff, but Ozma was the most visible admin back in the days when making fun of a mod for any reason was probatable or bannable. So people liked to say that stuff specifically to get under her skin.

Nah I looked up his rapsheet and he's threadbanned hard enough there to be under threat of perma if he ever posted in it again.

The porn was some porno about a woman masturbating in a bathroom stall, who happened to kind of look like Ozma. The fat thing is because she was a woman and a site admin on a web forum where people like to trash talk anyone with a mod or admin star.

People will talk about how she created the "catlady GBS" phenomenon but apparently she hated that phase of GBS and was one of the people who set up the GBS 2.0 reboot. And even that didn't really remove whatever any given poster mean by "catlady GBS." There's still cat-fanatics on PI and YOSPOS. The whole range of self-flagellating/pedantic tones and getting mad at random news articles from old GBS is still represented between CSPAM and PYF.

Yeah I wondered what happened but no one seemed to care or notice.

I think someone said he went to B&R but I don't know if one specific thing prompted him to leave. At a guess it was over the weird concentration camp/not concentration camp poo poo that D&D and CSPAM hate each over.

he got de-ik'd I think, and in response autobanned. I've noticed he was consistently the most complained about IK in uspol, so maybe something prompted the mods to de-ik him.

No, Ozma was 100% on an arty porn site where all the videos are peoples faces as they orgasm, but not their actual sex organs. The tag line was le petite morte although I forget the actual name of the site... last time I mentioned it (I think in this thread?) someone knew it. The bathroom stall porn thing was a lookalike, though, if I remember correctly.

Fucking nauseating!


A lot of the mod stuff from '08-13ish was before SASS and CWCwiki/KF really kicked the gently caress off so tons of those people were posting here on a regular basis as their brand of lovely humor hadn't been recognized for what it was, hate speech.

In general the outspoken female mods got an absolute river of poo poo for their jobs and misogyny was definitely a part of it. The fact that an era was referred to "cat-lady" times is kind of proof that a lot of the criticism seemed more concerned with gender then any actual facts.

poo poo, it was GBS-FM! How did I forget? Thank you. That helps a lot. I miss "internet radio," though I admit Spotify has totally killed my desire to remember, download, collate, and curate music files.

SomaFM is great, but it's definitely not the same kind of thing as GBS-FM was.
