Oh, I'm aware of the legend of Skweezer and her parenting habits, but her heyday was before my time on TDPF.

WOW, I am really surprise that Sno didn't make the top 5.


If Sno is 6, there is no number 1.

Carol "Anti-Smoking" Thompson, yes she was a treat. (That interpretation of the "AS" in her foroniker, which was put forward by Prof. Wagstaff if I recall correctly, was quiet elegant.)

But no, I actually remember fondly the four I mentioned above. As in, I enjoyed what they posted on their own merits, not ironically.

There are plenty of women who post here, though there are a lot more men. Just looking over the top posts list, and not all of these are active, but I think they're all women posters: Bwis53, Nickled&dimed, Brenda, cattyr, dulouz, gargantua, Oprah, thusnelda, Iris, Violet Skye, auntgoodness, skrattypants, galoot, marge.

I don't know, maybe I'm wrong about a few of them, but surely it's not simply Duca and Sno.

Not quite. But he definitely belongs in this discussion. Deserves an "HOF" after his name.

Ya, I was lying because it suited my purposes and this is election season.

Perhaps I will use the "c" word and smoke a few out of their hiding places.

LOL, I forgot about her. Hey, she is really smart, just a little intense. Oddballs are to be cherished.

I think the word you're looking for is "insane".

Every time I get my phone bill I'm reminded of Genie...

I'm almost comforted to report that her web "site" is still up, and currently contains... 17,260 words. On a single page.

So she's still got that hobby going for her, which is nice.

Peej, by what logic does someone with my username get robbed of a Y chromosome?

Somehow I can't picture using "hey, ya big galoot" as an effective pickup line for me to meet women. Has it ever worked for you?

I still think banning her was a mistake.
