Datalounge Hall of Fame

The greatest threads ever.

5. "Bai Ling is on the roof!" Our first high quality thread in a long, long time.

4. The 9.11 thread. I don't know if it was all that special as far as the content, but it was incredibly practical as an information source since every other site on the net was unreachable that day. An early responder called the WTC an insatiable bottom, a common DL phrase at the time.

3. The guy dying of cancer (it was actually a departure from normal DL snarkiness and was kind of touching).

2. "Dialing the Phone with a Pencil" Every time I see a fair-haired waifish young boy, I imagine him at a telephone, pencil in hand, working that rotary magic, and fashioning himself all glamorous "like those women on tv."

1. "I hate my friend Julie". The gold standard of threads. Will never be surpassed.

The thread about the guy who mistakenly sent a cell phone video he took of himself masturbating to everyone in his contact list. I think it was on a holiday - Easter or Thanksgiving maybe, so all of his relatives got it at the same time, while sitting around the table. I think one fainted and one threw up. Of course his boss and coworkers also got it. Did he quit or get fired? I remember him saying he was moving out of town. Certainly whoever posted made it up, but it was funny, especially the play by play of how it all came crumbling down. As I recall, the first post was something to the effect of "oh my god!!! I sent a video to my whole contact list, how can I undo it??!!" and it went on from there. Those are the kind of ESTs I like.

[R7] "Dee Hall Here" threads was a classic. Hell almost all the soap threads were a riot.

And the "Susan Lucci Here" thread that died soon as Dee came in and crushed Susan's feelings.

Also anything that talked about the original M. before everyone was doing the meryl streep thing.

Although now some of my favorites are the Karen Ziemba trolls that pop out of seemingly nowhere but are a complete riot.

I love you R60! Great list.

The Jani Lane thread was called: "I just had sex with Jani Lane". Something about the 'real time' threads that makes it more fun.

The whole thread was depressing and funny at the same time. Super sad that Jani died a few weeks later. Posters on the thread, as well as the OP were saying how messed up he was. Little did we know just how messed up. It kind of took the entertainment value out of the thread. I looked at it the week he died and it really wasn't funny anymore. However, at the time of the posting it was hilarious.

Thanks, R64. I agree about the Jani Lane thread. Yes, dying tends to put a damper on the fun part. RIP, JL.

But, yes, before that happened it was an amazing thread. There was the OP saying he just had sex with Jani Lane and was asking DL posters whether he should go back into the bed where Lane was passed out and bite his shoulder playfully to wake him up. You didn't know what was going to happen next...

He would have like six or seven threads going simultaneously about how much he hated chicago and everything that was wrong with it.

He eventually got red tagged (speaking of which, where did that little feature go?), and his full madness came to light. Not only was he the anti-chicago troll, he would often answer his own posts defending chicago, and then come back and criticize those.

Another vote for the original "Sows At The Trough". And "I'm Not Running A Bed And Breakfast Here" AKA Turkey Meatballs was so hilarious because the poster was obviously looking for sympathy but was then ripped to pieces for being a mean-spirited cheapskate.

It's no use wishing for them though- they've all been deleted. That's what happened when we went to the new format. And then the archive from that time to this April was deleted.. this April. I think the biggest loss is of these besides obvious DTPWAP is "The Weird Little Girl Next Door" I used to love reading that when the Classic Archive was still on the left-hand side.

Still, we'll always have our memories, bitches.

On a personal note, my visual version of "Dialing The Phone With A Pencil: In Pictures" was kind of one of those rare examples where we show what a little community we can be when we want to, and share something a bit personal.

Am so glad we've kind of 'got around' the deletion issue by getting to the point of thread genres like "Underwhelmed" and "Freaks You Work With" and the numerous "Julie" threads which go on forever.

What was the thread when one guy mentioned a date who was wearing a spangly skirt and smoking crack? It ended with 'lucky lucky me' or something similar. Loved that one.

I was riveted by the Dustin Dewind thread. Dustin, what happened? it was years ago.

Vegan dinner thread was one i started. Event itself was actually pretty mellow and fine overall. Much less drama than DL anticipated but I loved all the responses.

There are so many great threads on Datalounge! Now, if we can only stop all the racist, antisemitic ones with the word Jew, Bible, God and Nazi in the titles. These appear to be innocent, but I've uncovered lies and propaganda on all of them and it's sick. There are white supremist sickos infiltrating DL. Maybe they aren't even gay or aren't here to be a part of the LGBT community, but rather to try to subtly change thinking patterns and spread their crap.

Okay, enough.

-"Everything I need to know I learned from QAF"

-"Dancing with the Tsars"

-"Nana Mouskouri just called" (way before the Bai Ling thread)

there was also a thread from way back where one word in the titles of movies, books, TV shows and songs was replaced with 'cunt'. It was childish but it brought tears to my eyes.

It was my late partner who died of cancer. Can you believe he'll have been gone for four years soon? I've missed him every waking minute of every single day since he passed away.

I don't know if I ever told you how much your support and caring messages meant to me during those final weeks. They still do.

I'm going back to Maine, where we scattered his ashes, to "be with him" on the anniversary. I have every year.

Thank you all again, from the bottom of my heart.

The field trip to the Christian board reminded me of the DL field trip to the UK newspaper website where all the Eurofraus were cluck-clucking over the Madeleine McCann case. They went BONKERS.

I also loved the group autobiographies -- there was one on Star Jones' wedding day ("The Marriage of Bigaro") and the "Rosie Dearest" book that was supposedly being written by Rosie's kids in 2021.
