My name is Foron, for we are Many.

We tried this long ago, and if it ever did work, it's been reversed. Washed away by the tide of ones and zeroes. Google doesn't respect us as Forons.

Yeah. That's right. DISRESPECT. How many pages do you have to wade into the Google search results until you even find Bruno's Urban Dictionary definition of "foron"?

The smartest and most physically attractive Madisonians to still be living in their mom's basements.

Holy shit, I ran into a foron in real life and totally creamed my jeans at first sight!

Six friggin' pages, man. SIX. And I don't even want to tell you how long it took me to find a reference to thedailypage.com in there (but I will--it was 17).

Sure, searching for "forons" leads you to TDP pretty quickly. And we totally fucking own "Foronistan." But being a Foron is where my bread is fucking buttered, man. I don't wanna hear no shit about some goddamned village in the Haute-Savoie département of France.

WE ARE FORON. Own the name. If you have a blog, link the word Foron in there to TDPF. Click on no Google searches for Foron unless they lead to TDPF. Uprank the shit out of Bruno's UD definition.

We're better than some lame portmanteau of "fucking moron," although honestly, a lot of us are. Foronward!

I am the genius that whipped you complacent kittens into shape and rallied for a cute name and identity for the Daily Page users and set up a poll for said suggested names.
Nevermore or chance (my 3D life ((drink, drugs, dementia))hinders me from remembering which), came up with the name we all voted for: Forons.
However, I did make up the term "judas priest."

Next you'll claim you were round when jesus christ had his moment of doubt and pain and made damn sure that pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate.

And get my name right. Small 'n'.

"Forons" would've been nevermore's. My claim to fame is having come up with "Foronward".

Or maybe just that he was in the house when the house burned down.

Ha ha, no, someone else installed the antiseptic wash and cold hand dryer(hot air blowers are redundant in the desert.)
I wasn't even a Foron at that time, just a Sodomite.
However: I did, apparently, sell God a faulty condom.

What's sad is the huge downwardly spiralling difference between the heady halcyon days of the past when the Forum was the go-to board and today, where I don't even feel the need to log in anymore.
Constantly changing and morphing, I used to be obsessed with checking in every few minutes.
Now a post festers for days, weeks, before anyone even reads it, let alone replies.
There are only 3 or 4 people online at most times, 3 of them guests!

hmm.

On the plus side, this thread is now on the third page of Google search results for "foron."

My idea of foroncators was roundly rejected, led by the puritanical element here.

Don't be sad, Ned. The word "moronicon" was coined especially for you, but you might need to share some credit with The Big Dumb. :lol: :roll: 8) :shock:
