RSPW has been on life support for about four years,
RSP-W is still a "high activity" Usenet group according to Google.
Relative to the drop in posts in the rest of the Usenet
(discussion) groups, is RSP-W really worse off than anywhere else?
Perhaps RSP-W's death (or at least malaise) has more to do with the
decline of the format it exists in than any poster or particular
group of posters you dislike?
Unless he is talking about quality of posts, in which case he is
You are viewing RSP-W's past through the rose-colored glasses of
nostalgia. During the height of the last wrestling boom RSP-W had
posters twenty times worse than the current crop of scapegoats.
You are engaging in wishful thinking, my friend. The current
scapegoats are as lame as any Damnation incursion, are as prolific as
Alex "Dink" Cain and as boring as any number of former posters who's
names I've already forgotten. They combine the suck of previous
posters to create an entirely new level of suck.
In fact, my anonymous compadre, you have it backwards. During the last
wrestling boom RSPW had posters twenty times better than the current
top posters. They left RSPW in part because the common denominator has
been lowered by the so-called scapegoats. This is not inflated
hindsight. This is undisputable fact.
I truly believe that RSP-W has more potential right now than it may have
ever had before in its history... for dozens of serious, legitimate
reasons. Its main problem right now isn't delightfully dreadful posters
like The Scapegoat Stable... it's the boring old fogies who try to keep
the new talent down at every turn with their politicking and crotchety
You'll have no argument from me that there are a number of posters who have
long worn out their 'gimmicky' behavior, but that does not excuse the
aforementioned scapegoat posters' level of suck.
Read one robby post and you've read them all, but I don't see how
anyone could deny that the ongoing *reactions* to robby are at
least mildly entertaining.
I like to imagine a hyperactive, In Living Color-era Jim Carrey
writing robby's posts.
You recognize that "robby" is lame and repetative, yet refuse to
acknowledge that the replies to him are equally as much. I think you
are letting your personal preferences color your objectivity, sir.
If you mean the guy with a serial-number handle who isn't a wrestling
fan, that isn't what I meant. That guy's just robbying robby in the
same way robby robbied FARVA. I don't mean to underrobby robby by
that; robby's robbying as good as he robbies in that exchange. I'm
not sure he'll be outrobbied anytime soon.
No, the truly fun reactions are in the outraged, whining posts
demanding that everyone take action against robby et al. Chad Bryant
really flipped out a while ago, going berzerk and posting a bunch of
rl info about robby. That's classic entertainment, and the stuff of
RSP-W myth; robby is officially a legendary troll!
I think part of RSPW's decline can be attributed to the group
continually enabling such posters long after they have ceased to be
RSP-W was synonymous with beating things into the ground years before
robby'd even heard of it.
Sorry, you've failed to make any relevant statement here.
and the Bede stalker
Are you kidding? Bedestalker's posts are the best things going in
RSP-W. That guy's like the love child of Oscar Wilde and Ambrose
Bierce. His barbs are clever and highly entertaining. Eleven-star
Please tell me you're making a troll post. If The Bede's stalker is
the most entertaining thing about RSPW it is time to hang the
condemned sign on the front door.
It's okay that you have that opinion. It's perfectly normal, as
Bedestalker is the Van Gogh of our time. Sure, he's batshit insane
and most people ignore him, but his greatness will be archived by
Google and recognized by future generations.
He is an idiot. His barbs are weak and his cirtiques are empty.
Vermeer. Jesus of Nazareth. Bedestalker. Many great men have been
unpopular in their time. When you're watching history unfold around you,
it's difficult to have perspective.
One does not need the view of history to recognize they are living in a
