get me caught up to speed

Here is my problem: I did not start reading the thread entitled, "Spam in the Private Mail," because I didn't really care as I just ignored spam and ads on the FTE page. I would see the thread growing and growing and was glad I hadn't gotten in that thread. Must be boring stuff about ads, money, and paying for the site I thought.

Well, today, in another thread, someone made reference to it, and since it was my day off (actually off all week) I went to the last page to see what was going on. I started on page 49 and went backwards. Now it is up to 50 pages.

I am not going to read thru 50 pages to get caught up on gossip, but "inquiring minds want to know". So can someone please give me the gist of what happened to Julie. Give me the Readers Digest condensed version.

Thanks

She picked a fight with admins over a bunch of nothing, and in the process got "outed" as the man she was all along. Real name Dan, he got kicked off the site for crimes against humanity.

The end.

Recap the entire thread so far:

Julie complained about SPAM ads in PMs
Members gave Julie a hard time about being someone she/he wasn't
Julie again she/he didn't have to defend her/himself
Julie gets notification she/he has a email that needs to be answered
Julie mysteriously vanishes
Posts about ending the thread
Thread starts to turn strange
Still more strangeness
Talk about the little blue pills
Some members defend Julie/Dan
Some members state why they feel Julie/Dan was wrong
Some members state Julie/Dan was the reason they no longer post
Discrepancies in the Julie/Dan posts and profiles were listed
User names were discussed and explained
Dick was invited to everyone's house
Pictures of an ugly cross dresser and a member's butt
Talk of likes and dislikes of real Spam and other foods
Fishing and what is the best bait
Carlene's T-shirt starts blinking at us

Then the thread goes off in different directions. That's about it.

... and now it's to the point the thread is more distracting than the problems it solved.

Bob,if you've any "free" time,I feel you're just the guy to develop this synopsis into a first-rate movie-script.Perhaps a television mini-series.You might throw a bone or two to your FTE buddies,giving them roles in the production.There's bound to be much competition for the coveted lead-role,Julie-Dan.I vote give it to PennDick.I want to be one of the victims,a role I'm eminently qualified to play,as I am married.Will work for wiring-diagrams.

Best Wishes,

Stevie

Also posted in the “no topic” thread.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but here is a diabolical sinister Machiavellian conspiracy theory for you;

Dan is having the last laugh (for now) at our expense; he knew he would be found out so he signed up under another alias some time ago and is even posting on this thread!

I wonder who it is?

“It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one's dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank and independent.” - W. Somerset Maugham

Julie made the cardinal mistake of attacking other members’ dignity, a trait we all cherish and rarely surrender. By being dishonest, Dan lost his own dignity.

“No man is an Island, entire of itself”; I will miss his many contributions to the forum. When he gets his mind right, I will join in welcoming him back.
