Well, it's winter. Do they even have internet at Del Boca Vista?
Where is Herm?
wow I wish I was popular enough for people to make a thread asking about my whereabouts
Dare to dream.
You're joking, right?
I've been around since this was a blogspot site. The key is going mostly unoticed (unless you have exceptional insight and wit).
YOU GOT IT!
I want that rye, lady!
Only in the newer Phase VII units
NO way that he got banned. He probably tired of the climate of the board the past few months. Hopefully we see him post again soon.
Ahhh. Can't really blame him then.
Politics and "see you next Tuesday" were pretty much all of the posts near the end.
it took me longer than i am proud to admit to figure out what "see you next tuesday" meant
But maybe if we act cool, no one will notice.
Penguin Pineapple is back!? Yay!
HBO's Girl's, man. Always picture the chick with the British accent saying it (Jessa?).
Me too, but I don't understand what is so bad about a band from Bay City..
a new word (backronym) and a new phrase. Not a bad day.
This phrase was used in "The Way Way Back". Underrated movie.
Yes indeed. Herm was banned somewhere around the Akron game, as I recall. He also had become combative to the point of getting personally insulting to other bloggers, even telling a few to do things which are quite impossible physically (I'll be polite here). It was time at that point.
I had no idea that he liked death metal bands from Bay City.
I guess we did have something in common.../s
Not death metal. Deathcore. Learn the difference
I had to google this. Initially thought it was a reference to something political since we vote on Tuesdays...
I'm pretty sure he was at negative a million the last time I saw him. Could be misremembering though.
What about his alter ego Chopblock/Peggy?
Ha, I could only remember his avatar. Oh, Peggy...
I'm pretty sure Chopblocks still around, he still posts, but more infrequently.
Nah I'm pretty sure he's gone for good.
By the way, regarding the whole Herm=ChopBlock thing, see http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/want-out-bolivia-read#comment-2329323
IIRC, he and Peggy were the same person.
That happens quite a bit around here.
It will be happening a lot more now with the point system coming back. Fucking losers.
Wait, I thought you got banned?! You're back? Nice to see you.
Why would I have been banned? Social experiments on online forums are a lot easier than gathering willing groups of participants in the real world. This is as good of a place as any for that sort of thing especially with the high rate of college grads. Btw, even though I barely come here anymore I appreciate you always sticking to what you believe no matter how many detractors you have. That spine of yours is very strong.
Herm was played out about 6 months before he stopped posting/got banned.
I was wondering about this a couple weeks ago. It has been a long time. Wasn't Turd Ferguson his biggest fan too, or am I thinking of someone else? Turd, where are ya?
He was a sham.
Haha, yeah, he and I had a weird, funny exchange or two. I usually enjoyed his shtick and kind of miss him now that I realize he's been away for awhile.
I was just thinking about this the other day- Who's tagline will I read now when I want to call Dave Brandon and stop the uniform changes but don't have his number!?!
I always thought it was fishy for him to post his content followed by the redundant "~Herm" ... as if we couldn't read his username to know who it was
I doubt any old person has ever typed using the tilde symbol (~) before. I didn't even know where that was at.
I use it daily. There's no place like ~, after all.
Sources say that he just resigned as the Texas football coach and no longer has to find things to kill time when "the man" makes him stay at work all day. Hello retirement.
Chopblock = Herm
Herm = Chopblock
After he got outed he stopped posting under the Herm moniker altogether and dialed way down using Chopblock. My guess is there's a third or even a fourth user name he's using now.
For me anyways I didn't like the Herm persona much cause it seemed SO over-the-top but I liked Chopblock a lot.
Lol, I thought it was Mr. Rager.
I've never been known by another moniker on this site. Howeva, I did register several "Ghost of _____" names just to ensure that our friendly neighborhood troll didn't get his hands on them.
