“I flipped the switch, it got very dark in here... I scared of the dark”
“hey honeybunches - you can sit by me in the dark anytime - just don't ask me to hold your hand”
“I'll hold it if you are female.”
“Be careful honeybunches, my brother will slobber all over you.”
“I don't mind a little drool...”
“bearmagnet broke it
Warning: mysql_data_seek(): Offset 50 is invalid for MySQL result index 7 (or the query data is unbuffered) in /var/www/thebackpacker.com/htdocs/trailtalk/thread.php on line 448”
“your query data was unbuttered.”
“did it happen?...i've noticed no difference except i had to sign in again”
“No flippa da switcha...”
“Anyone else getting the feeling that we've been had, owned, taken for a ride on the short bus off a very tall cliff?
That Matt has in fact pulled the biggest hoax in TT history?”
“Matt never was a prankster so, no.”
“I have called him on it twice. I was testing a theory that this whole thing was a hoax when I posted as elise. Matt outed me as the troll to everyone else and didn't give me a vacation from posting. I don't remember him doing that to any other trolls that impersonated other posters. He left it up to "elise" to decide what to do with me, so I believe him when he says this isn't a hoax. Of course, he could be a master hoaxer and that was all part of his plan.”
“I know you were the first the call this a hoax, I don't claim credit for that. I'm starting to buy into it, though.
5 days to "flip the switch"? Very little (any?) communication anywhere from elise since this thread was started? Still no mention of the purchase of this site on that company's website?
I don't care either way, sold or not we're all still here and having fun. Its just starting to smell ...”
“if it a hoax, the best part of it is that we get to break all the rules and matt has to let it happen or ruin his hoax. Look at all the fuego threads that aren't in feugo, lol. rule breakers”
“Elise certainly isn't a very active webmaster at this point. I wonder if that will change or if she will continue to have so much other work to do that we will continue to be left to our own devices. Oh, the havoc that will be wreaked!”
“its a holiday week - she might not even be at work”
“Seeing as this is 4th of July week I would not expect much to happen.”
“well there ought to be fireworks ;)

“I wonder if I can sign in as humanpackmuIe and cause a ruckus with treebait”
“Most likely you would just cause a ruckus with Hyway and Treebait.”
“Oh ..Oh... new rumor.....
Demand Media is making so much money on their other sites that they needed a tax write-off for the year of 2007. They paid a grossly inflated price for a worthless site with the knowledge that it will cost more to maintain it than it is worth. Ergo... until the profits for Demand Media fall, we are sitting pretty. But after that... the switch will simply be the "on/off" switch.
How's that for a paranoia scenario.”
“I've seen it done before but not likely in this scenario.”
“well in that case we should refrain from clicking on the sponsors to prevent this site from making a profit.”
I've already blocked everything.”
“same here when you told me that firefox blocks ads.”
“adblock plus rocks”
“I made it a point to never click on any ads when Matt owned the site. Now that it's changed hands....I still won't, but only out of disinterest/laziness.”
“so it's better to try to do things well the first time, right? looks like the first estimate of the switch-flipping date was a little premature. and by a little, i guess i mean several days... as you have probably guessed by now, it's tricky to make the servers line up right so we don't lose any data. should happen sometime soon though :)”
“Server hell is universal.”
How about cleaning up the 'dirty' words.
I thought you didn't like that.
Guess it's ok for the leftists to cuss on TT.
See the "Liar Libby" thread for examples.
“screw you stovie, I like the dirty words”
“Mommy, mommy, he said a dirty word!
“Saying bad words make me feel more mature, stronger and like I'm in control. 'President', WOOOW, I feel better.”
“The self portrait was a nice touch.”
“Someone took my stock market away, Hay Hay!”
“Quick! Call the WAAAAAAAANBULANCE for Stovie!”
““Saying bad words make me feel more mature, stronger and like I'm in control. 'President', WOOOW, I feel better.”
You mean like Cheney, LOL.”
“Yah, I always thought I had something in common with 'the big one'. Is Matt being held hostage by tree hugging server mechanics on acid for Jebus?”
“It's OK to be a true pottymouth on TT.
No children read TT.
'elise' was just kidding about foul language.
Foul language makes someone sound very brite.
Everyone should have a right to use the word sh*t on TT, it's so cutting edge.
“we'd use it on the trail or around the campfire, but lets all sound like pompous asses and say excrement instead of #&%!$.”
“So any child reading TT right now wont know what sh*t means, LOL
Boy, they must grow kids real stupid where you come from. The Presidents no child left behind program isn't working so well I take it.

You pottymouths need to learn about sarcasm.”
“Shut your rectum!”
“We musn't say sh*t for fear of making someone cry.
