Hahaha. I pretty much only read the posts of my favorite couple posters, so I'm afraid a lot of that is lost on me.Oh fuck yeah, those groups were golden. I'm criminally forgetting the name of the guy, it'll come to me, who wrote a bunch of stories about junkie life from the 70s onward... great stuff, I think he tried to get it published. I want to say his name was Gizmo or something like that but Google isn't turning anything up for that.
And alt.drugs.psychedelics was a mess too. Robert F. Golaszewski/RFGDXM, that girl(?) Lucidity who was trying to start a messianic DXM cult? The dextroverse, the third plateau, that forum where you had to write an essay to join to shitpost about tripping off cough syrup? I used to post in those places. I wish I could remember more of the lulzy shit that was going on. A lot of real loons/schizos posting; then massive wars accusing so-and-so of being a paedophile (which eventually went on become ratethesource.com which was one of a succession of long-con scam drug selling sites based out of Canada ... people who tried to criticize the scam would be accused of being paedos...) I could get into a lot about this. The drug internet really deserves a thread here. As I said Bluelight had a little herd of cows...borderline personality Eveleivibe (probably spelling it wrong) tranny GoddessLSDXTC, dogfucker Fausty (who has a thread here already), then a big SJW war banning the use of "nigger" and "faggot" causin huge amounts of drama and eventually closing/reopening/closing/reopening again the social forum, at the height of this while one of the senior mods was making threads about the "Jewish Question" and advocating fascism...then a bunch of leaks from moderator forums. Absolute lunacy.
So I don't know Gizmo. However, I do remember the wonderful posts of Harry of Harryworld, do you remember him? PhD in Russian literature, kicked for shooting up in a bathroom at a faculty party? Some of his posts were very good, and don't deserve to be forgotten. He had like three sisters who committed suicide as I recall, and posted a few paragraphs of a dream he had of meeting one of them in hell that I still remember almost word for word all these years later. Is there any way to retrieve some of these posts?
Edited to add: Wait: you mean, DopieOpie? From New York? Michael Donegan, I think? If you mean him, he was hilarious. Died in 2008.
