I would like to highly recommend this excellently written article on incels.

Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

I've just been having some major mental-health issues and IRL drama therefrom. I'm setting up a committee / co-ownership thing for FSTDT, so if I disappear, someone else is in charge. All the mods also have my mobile now. I'm really sorry for worrying anyone! I love you guys, and I hope you can forgive me.

Your safe return warms the cockles of our whassnames; you are the soul of FSTDT.

Welcome back!

6/14/2018 12:27:53 PM



Hey, good to see you're not wiped off the face of the earth or something, we were starting to wonder for a little while!

shy, welcome back, you were missed. Please consider me for the committee.

6/14/2018 1:57:04 PM


I'm sorry to hear you're going through a shitstorm right now shy but hearing from you at all does my heart glad. Welcome back, friend, it's not so lonely here.

6/14/2018 2:46:54 PM


so glad you're okay,shy!
so glad the site is back!

6/15/2018 2:36:56 AM



Glad to hear you're feeling better, I'm pointing the subreddit folks overhere so they can know what's up.

6/15/2018 3:03:20 AM


@Everyone: Thank you for the kind words.

@Bossman: Good to see you're still around!

@ Shy:

Seeing the board operational again means less to me than knowing you're actually all right.

Welcome back.

Oh crap! Neither this site nor shy are dead!
Or.... there is the possibility that they're undead.....

6/15/2018 9:55:07 AM


Good to see shy and the site are extant. Welcome back.

6/15/2018 7:33:43 PM

Oh Em Gee

Yipee! *applauds wildly*

6/16/2018 12:08:25 AM

We are back! We rule hell again! We rule hell again FSTDT fuck the world!

I don't know what the hell was up with the outage that happened yesterday afternoon and last night, but I filed a support ticket about it whose degree of politeness was less than Canadian. That's the best I can do right now, but I'm still sorry for the downtime.

In other news, pyro and Kradorex are now your official co-overlords. They have all of the usernames and passwords associated with FSTDT's hosting account and database (as well as full admin privileges on FSTDT itself), so they can do anything and everything with the site that I can. At least two people that are not me have exported backups of the database, and if pyro does one, that'll make a third. Access to assume control of the FSTDT domains is the only thing left that they need to fully take over the site should I disappear again, or alternatively, in the rare event that I go completely shithouse rat insane and become a tyrannical lunatic who needs to be deposed. (If something like that actually ever did happen, I hope they would seriously depose me...)

The holdup with the domains has to do with an ethical issue inadvertently caused by FSTDT's domains being under the same Namecheap account I've had since back in the days when I was self-employed making a living doing web design, development, and administration. That was a decade ago, but my account and billing history still has transactions and invoices as an affiliate, reseller hosting and domain purchases, domain and hosting account transfers, etc. This is information I have no business giving access to other people — because it involves other people, ones who did business with me at that. I have strong convictions when it comes to the basic human right to privacy and to be forgotten and the basic human responsibility to actively protect and honor others' privacy. I'll leave it at that because I'll go full-on soapbox about the subject if I keep going.

Anyway, right now I'm seeing if I can register a second account in my name and transfer the domains to it. This could pose an issue. If I can't get it straightened out myself, I'll see if I can get Krad to register an account and just transfer the domains to him. Either way, once Krad and pyro have access to the domains (shouldn't take more than 2-3 days), everything's set and FSTDT will no longer be dependent on my mental health.

Ever noticed that Yahweh is the ultimate Mary Sue?

He is literally the most supposedly perfect, most speshul and most overpowered character possible - and yet, he is a complete idiot when it comes to using his vast powers, which only ever ends up being used in self-aggrandisement. No matter how much of a smug, selfish, bitchy, petty, vindictive, hypocritical, intolerant, amoral and downright cruel arsehole he is, he is always held up as the ultimate standard of morality, and anyone who he victimises clearly deserves it. The world is divided into sycophants and enemies, and anyone who opposes him does so not out of genuine disagreement or conflict of interests, but out of envy and spite and/or malicious obsession. And the suethors and suefans are unhealthily invested in him as their ultimate fantasy of power, revenge and validation, taking criticism very, very, VERY badly.

I have a pretty bad case of "not invented here" syndrome, but it's just because I like programming stuff.

6/19/2018 5:28:31 PM

Glad you're sorting everything out shy! Hate to be a bother but I'm still looking forward to the Fundie awards if thats still happening.

Well shy, now it's a race to see which of the overlords will lose their minds first.
My money's on pyro. He's too calm and collected. That must mean he's hiding something!

6/20/2018 9:46:11 AM


Whoa, I'm late.
Glad you're back, shy!!!

6/21/2018 9:37:45 AM


I checked the site every day in May but I gave up at the beginning of June. Glad to see we are Back.

6/26/2018 9:19:26 AM


I'm tempted to assume that I tend to come off as a straight-laced stick in the mud when it comes to commenting on fundies, so it might surprise the gang to know that I myself had serious mental health issues in the past. I encourage all of you to be as patient and supportive of Shy as your time allows- Trust me it means alot. Remember, we're all in this together *Red Green*

Troll cleanup required on aisles 1 & 2:

It's certainly obsessed with the crap it's left. [/Freud]

6/28/2018 7:04:29 PM


Welcome back! Always good to see news, even if it's not necessarily good.

6/28/2018 9:22:23 PM


More troll cleanup required.

My, but Freud would have a field day with this coprophiliac.
