JG

Sooo,

For the uninitiated who is JG?

I searched back threads for a bit, but only found references to JG, but couldn't figure out who it is?

What's the backstory on JG in the annals of ER.org? Can you point me at a thread to three?

Thanks!

Who is John Galt? A timeless question that we struggle to answer even today.

In answer to OP, the forum is much more tightly moderated than it was in the past. Back in the day we attracted a collection of lunatics (e.g. h-o-c-u-s), BS artists (e.g. JG), and perpetually antagonistic buttheads (e.g. azanon). They and responses to them that were made would not be tolerated for more than 20 posts these days. Makes for a more serene but somewhat less amusing forum.

JG is like Voldemort, "he who must not be named".

Seems like more people back then just wanted to keep the ball in the air. A lighter feeling than now.
