Bushville.org a HOAX! DU implicated.
Edited on Sun Sep-11-05 02:10 PM by GeorgeBushytail
The Bushville, DC nonsense turned out to be fake: www.bushville.org

It's too bad that DU got dragged in to such a nasty scandal.

I'm back, people:

If I annoy you use the ignore button: the little sleeping guy a bit to the right of my name on this post. Your loss.

9. Haha. I'm pretty good at writing catchy post titles.

Hi to everyone.

How many of you would have bothered with this thread if it was titled "Bushville Update"?

Posting polls is another way to get attention.

It was all just some random joker on the Internet.

6. So, it's a hoax, but you're still using it in your sig?
Methinks someone is trying a bit too hard to attract attention.

13. let me see if I get this straight
you promote some "event" - and don't get enough responses, and threaten to leave, then diss DU on that thread as it isn't a place for activists, then comeback about your effort being a hoax and DU being implicated in a nasty scandal?

bit of internet "performance art", if you ask me - unless I really don't follow what this is all about and am barking up the wrong tree.

14. WTF? DU is "implicated"? Because there's a link on the site?
Uh....WTF?

I went to bushville.org, and two things (among others I'm not bothering with):

1)It's a hoax? Is it your hoax? It says on the site that Bushville that it's 'mostly me and my outrage and my laptop and my passion'. So...huh?

2)How is DU "implicated"? I see that you (or whoever the "I" is) visited DU and 'got help'. I could have a grand plan to smack all people with glasses. If I go to Staples with fliers and the lady at Staples tells me how to reduce the page size on the copier, she nor Staples is "implicated".

Don't know how nasty the "scandal" can be, I haven't heard anything about it til right now.

So again, WTF? :shrug:

21. oh, it's Mr. Melodrama
quit using DU for your own ego trip. By the way, your website looks like a 5th grader "designed" it. Does your mother know you're out of the basement?

23. Thanks for noticing.
I gave instructions on how to use the ignore button.

No one needs to listen to me if I annoy them.

28. So let me get this straight:
You expect people to go to your site and go along for this with you--when basically you're browbeating them into doing so, and now you're even claiming it to be a hoax--just so people visit the site?

I can see Bushville's future, alright.

..my take is you're a () EDITED because the rules say I can't call other posters names. I could be wrong.

Did anybody take you seriously and spend all their money to get to DC looking for Bushville. Did you laugh at them?
