What happened to airnxtz?
March 2, 2006 1:19 PM   Subscribe

Remember airnxtz? He's the dude who came to AskMefi to help plan his eventual EBay scams. The thread is a must read if you haven't already been.

Here's the thing.. it's missing an ending! I want more! But where the hell should I post it? What more can be done? We did so much... to end up signifying nothing. :(

I would appreciate an ending, as well. I'd want to submit it to the folks over at the mmfhoh (mentioned in the thread and over at Projects)

Please post the ending here.

The tin man gets his courage, finds airnxtz, and kicks his ass.

Duuuuude! It's the lion who gets his courage. The tin man gets a heart.

Yeah, he got a heart by ripping it out of airnxtz's chest.

Boo-yah!

airnxtz's ebay account is deleted, he spruces up his myspace page, and posts poetry.

It's one of those "life goes on" endings.

Interesting that none of his MySpace comments or poems mention committing fraud.

cavalier attempts at paraphrasing makes Baby Shakespeare cry.

I like the fake slut he invented to be his myspace friend. Presumably either to make him seem like a player or give the impression that he has chlamydia. Don't grab photos from WatchersWeb, dude. He's a sucky scammer all around.

Wow, he's studying to be a marriage and family therapist - sign me up!

"Come get me thighs" was from a rough draft of "Shook Me All Night Long." Bet you didn't know that.

From his myspace page:

I love to workout, love to go to bars. I hate being alone. I hangout with good people with good intentions, no BS.

LOL.

Dear Mathowie,

Protocols requests to know the length of his bannination and wishes to sincerely assure that he is not usually that drunk.
posted by thirteenkiller at 3:30 PM on March 2, 2006


Am I a great photographer or what. Aaron asks retorically (NSFW).

The answer is he's knee deep in titties.

I love people who, when you ask them to clarify something that was said, they repeat it.

To be fair, it was someone else, cribcage.

I don't know if we should continue this thread. He seems dangerous. Everyone may have a dark side, but he has two.

13K:
I'd guess that you're not as fed up with the talking labrador pup as matt is. Why should the bannination last any time less than, say, forever? With P_G/Protocol's track record, why keep inviting the shitter back to the carpet?

O, and I say that having very much enjoyed P_G's company one fne evening in London town. It just seems that this ain't the right place for his, um, tomfoolery.

METAFILTER IS SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Wait, was POTEA banned?

I'm curious as to why, and a brief stroll through his posting history has turned up fruitless.
posted by shmegegge at 4:14 PM on March 2, 2006


Yeah, what's all this now?? Peeg is gone again. But why?
posted by jonson at 4:16 PM on March 2, 2006


wait, Protocols was Pretty_Generic?! so... why was he allowed back in the first place? and if anyone can link to this drunken bannination thread, the rubbernecking part of me would appreciate it.
posted by shmegegge at 4:19 PM on March 2, 2006


He was suspended for incoherent drunk rambling in his FPP last night, but now that he is sober he's very sorry about the whole business and eager to once again make worthy contributions to this community.
posted by thirteenkiller at 4:21 PM on March 2, 2006


Pffft. If he's gone, he'll be back. I don't know what you have to do to actually get perma-banned, but fucking with AskMe and hijacking other people's accounts isn't enough, that's fer sure.

Jesus. Here's a quick tip, folks: if you need to invent fake identities to be your internet friends, kill yourself.

That's a joke right?

Although to be fair, so is "banning" him. He'll be back next week with another account. Matt will let him stay, until the next time. Lather, rinse, repeat.

what exactly was he saying, anyway?

Fact: Protocols is NOT Thirteenkiller.

Right on. I already caught something! Eh? Oh, it's an old shoe. And some crabs.

Be happy it wasn't a red snapper.

Oh, a red snapper! Very tasty! Now, listen carefully, Weaver! You can hold on to your red snapper, or you can trade it for what's in the box that Hiro-san is bringing down the aisle RIGHT NOW! What's it going to be, Weaver?

So he didn't get arrested or anything? Bummer.

And now I'm < shout>disssssappppoointttted < /shout> too.

What happened with the seller; seems odd *they* haven't followed up in some fashion?

cribcage, awesome job keeping the fire stoked in that thread.

"His abrupt disappearance speaks volumes: It's exactly the result you expect when you shine a flashlight on a cockroach."

Good on you, man.
