Fake Edge fiasco basically was the beginning of the end of Interference as it was once known for many people (imo). So so many people either left or started heading for the path out as a result of the thing, either intentionally or it was the catalyst for their exit. Re-reading the thread the majority of posters aren't even here anymore. Many of whom we had met in real life at shows gatherings etc.

If Fake Edge ultimately wins this contest, it's not a hell of a lot to celebrate, really.

Perhaps it should get a nod for being one of the darkest moments in Interference history. It certainly showed an ugly side to those involved in lying to the members.

Yeah. I reread some of the stuff (the abdicate thread in particular) this morning as I'm bedridden with some sinus infection, just to make sure I wasn't being too harsh in my previous post.

I was nowhere near harsh enough.

I'm sure rereading that thread has stirred up old emotions from that episode. I honestly don't want to read it because of the mood it may put me in. But the disappointment that those involved will stoop so low like that is still alive for me.

Which is the main reason why I would prefer to roll with the original thread over the one with purely negative vibes. At least the OG Fake Edge thread had some smiling faces to speak of, even though we all know how it turned out. I've noticed a trend throughout this contest: dark or uneasy threads tend to perform slightly worse because of that quality.

That was an entertaining re-read though. 8 years later (holy shit, it's been 8 years ), it's pretty funny to see the bald-faced evasion on Elvis's part, but, like iron yuppie said, it's also understandable why people got so pissed.

My favorite part is bg stepping in and calling the mom, and Joel "I'm trying to get to the bottom of this" Tanner acting like it's the craziest thing in the world to follow a lead in an investigation.
I'd actually forgotten that Angela and Salome were mods. I know the two of them, Beli, and pretty much everyone from the testje chat thread didn't believe it from the beginning. And it's also quite possible I just hated sicy at the time enough to think now well, she must have been in on it.

Just to chime in, I have to say that if that Elvis fella had given a full unreserved apology, perhaps less peeps would have been so pissed. The apology he did offer just seemed so half-hearted and ingenuine, like he was apologizing only coz he was obliged to do so. Made him look like a corporate stooge. I'm not surprised there was an exodus after that.
