    I still have him on Facebook and go "AWEEEE" whenever I see a pic of him living his life.

    I often think of Legio, so creative and passionate.. I wonder where she is and hope she is living a good life.
    Well, if I, Belisarius, the Black Prince, and you all agree on something, I really don't think there can be any further discussion.

    Always expected Legio to make a comeback on TWC, maybe one day.

    Shame isn't it. Was surprised to see it was 7 years since she last logged on.

    There's quite a few big names like her, TheFirstO'Neill, Squeakus/Tom Paine, Fabolous, Justy, that I'm surprised have never made it back here once....

    Legio did an odd thing. "She" left under the name of Chloe. Then, mysteriously, logged back in to change "her" name back to Legio.

    I remember the name TheFirstO'Neill. He was an admin when I first joined. I never seen a post of his at that time.
    Other members that popped in in the past are Siblesz, Trobolov, Harry Lime and Wild Bill Kelso. Mostly to say. "hi" and then go. (They may be a few more that have too).

    The quotation marks here seem incredibly rude and inconsiderate.

    I could not agree more. Please do not hesitate to inform us all about the next time you are outraged on someone else's behalf. We all care very deeply about the offense you take on behalf of people you either barely know, do not know, or claim to speak on behalf of. Your totally legitimate moral outrage should inform the behavior of everyone here.

    It does seem like a fairly simple courtesy to refer to other members in the way they would prefer though.

    The founding fathers have been pretty good at returning over the years. Some of the big figures of the next generation like Mimirswell, Hotspur, Simetrical, Empress Meg and the other ones mentioned have just disappeared entirely though.

    Having gotten into wikis a few times I wondered if I would find Sim on the MediaWiki side of things (since that seems to be what he ended up on after TWC). If I did, I didn't recognize him.

    Yeah, he doesn't actually know. I spoke to Legio at length prior to "her" departure. The screen name changed after the departure. At no time did Legio/Chloe ever stated they wanted to specific pronoun. I would add as a teacher, if a student asked to be referred to as whatever, I will accommodate. However, when communicating with the parent, I would follow convention, unless the parents also request it.

    Yeah, would would think people like Paul, tBP, Manji, Boris, Rububula, and wilpuri would make an appearance. Lord Tomyris popped in as well (2021). He last appeared briefly in 2014.

    Yep. Don't do it for me, do it out of respect for Chloe.

    Yeah, he doesn't actually know.
    I mean, I do know. I was very close with Chloe and we talked about this sort of stuff often.

    Yeah, he doesn't actually know. I spoke to Legio at length prior to "her" departure. The screen name changed after the departure. At no time did Legio/Chloe ever stated they wanted to specific pronoun.
    She has stated as such publicly multiple times, hence the whole coming out...

    Simple courtesies are my favorite courtesies. Feigned outrage isn't my favorite outrage.
    I don't have to "feign" outrage that someone is "deadnaming" a good friend of mine while she isn't here to tell him off.

    However, when communicating with the parent, I would follow convention, unless the parents also request it.
    Oh so you don't actually care about what the individual wants, okay.

    Convention is to call the person what they want to be called.

    I feel sorry for your kid.

    Sorry, I am not politically correct.
    I don't have to answer to a third party. I once knew (when I lived in Chicago) a transgendered person (female to male). This goes back to 2001- 2006. Ex-wife was an artist. I met people of walks of life. I tell off color jokes and can get away with it because people know my character and personality. I also have had the luxury of not living in the US, so I do not have to put up with the juveniles insanity. As I like to tell vegans, I am former lion from the Serengeti. I never lost my flavor for the flesh. I do it with such a charm that even the most militant vegan laughs.

    As a teacher, you do not want to piss off the parents. I even tell my students, if you do not like something, do not complain the school. (They just patronize them anyway), You need to tell your parents. The school will jump through a ring of fire to pacify the parents. LOL.

    Anyway, the "different" students always seem to gravitate towards me. I am not sure why. I am not pretentious, but I can be a little preachy about anti bullying and racism/ xenophobism to nauseum. I don't know. I like to think my fellow teachers are the same way.

    Disregarding someone's specific wishes and their person hood doesn't make you "not politically correct", it makes you something that I'm not allowed to put on TWC.

    I don't have to answer to a third party.
    Oh okay well I guess you can just behave however you want without repercussions then

    I once knew (when I lived in Chicago) a transgendered person (female to male).
    "I'm not racist because I once knew a black person when I lived in Chicago"



    I also have had the luxury of not living in the US, so I do not have to put up with the juveniles insanity.
    Wanting to be treated with humanity and be respected as a person is not "juvenile insanity"

    As I like to tell vegans, I am former lion from the Serengeti. I never lost my flavor for the flesh. I do it with such a charm that even the most militant vegan laughs.
    They're laughing at how stupid that sounds.

    Worth noting, Chloe's profile still says "Empress of all things" not Emperor

    It's ironic how you go out of your way to post as obnoxiously as you do.
    These are the sort of responses that has turn the mudpit into a cesspool of incoherent arguments. You can't seem capable of engaging in any sort of intelligent discourse except through cheeky responses that is nothing more than a misunderstood hyperbole.

    I think the apparent preference in Chloe/Legio's profile is clear enough that unless you have solid reason to say otherwise, a straight she is merited. I'm not sure what the controversy is.

    PikeStance's comment was simply childishly dickish for the sake of saying something dickish and nothing more. It's something to be laughed at and pitied. He seems to whining that he got called out of it too.
