Roll Damn Tide Explanation?

Submitted by Raback Omaba on July 24th, 2012 at 6:22 PM
I can only peek into this board periodically and for short bursts, so I miss a lot... But remember Roll Damn Tide and his posts. Have been seeing a lot of references to him in the past month or so.

Can someone lease explain to me what happened?

RollDamnTide turned out to be a fake persona created by WolverineInABag. He was outed when he accidentally posted a comment from the former account that he had clearly intended to post from the latter account. Someone replied to the comment before he had a chance to delete it, preserving his embarassing sociological-experiment-gone-wrong for the MGoUniverse to mock for all eternity.

I was traveling at the time of the RDT debacle.   It took me about 45 minutes to disentangle that sad mess when I finally got back to a solid internet connection, but it was 45 minutes of well-spent entertainment.

My daughter was born hours earlier the day this went down. I was sitting in the hospital room winding down and checking MGoBlog while wife and baby were sleeping and stumbled upon the thread. What a great day!

For the good of mankind I've put RDT's self-outing in the HOF.  Why it wasn't there already, I have no idea, but I suspect it's a failure on the part of humanity itself.

One jackass pretended to be another jackass so that people would love him, but he wasn't too bright, so now he's not loved and he's still a jackass.

Oh, and he interviewed his alter-ego for a blog, which just turned out to be him complimenting himself about how funny and knowledgable he was.

My sincerest apologies, I wasn't aware donkeys were capable of using the internet. But then again, Herm seems to have mastered it and he's like 100 years old, so I'm not so surprised. It won't happen again.

a subordinate poster was into child porn, decided that it was best for the blog and his sterling, record-setting ambitions, that it was best not to report this to the authorities.

After setting the record for winning posts, his complicity in the cover-up was exposed and, unwilling to resign in mid-season, was fired from this blog last year.

He has since died, the statue erected in his honor taken down, and his record for winning posts here has been vacated.  He now ranks 12th all-time on the blog.

At least that is the way I have heard it.
