    True, me too!
    The election of Speaker reminds when Morgsie stood when paddy resigned. Paddy added 'I kiss trains' to Morgsies manifesto! Poor Morgsie, I wonder how he is?

    How are you these days?

    Morgsie disappeared long ago, possibly on a train

    I'm well thanks - you?

    Haha, yes I did indeed. I think I also added a mostly naked man in a pikachu outfit to TCIT's manifesto as well. Those were the days :moon: We shall never see the like again

    Last I knew, he was indeed on Reddit. No idea if he thrived. Another old member here knew him and I think said he was alright, but I don't really remember. :dontknow:

    There were some horrible people on Reddit, with some encouraging him to commit suicide. But they have been banned.

    This is what is says about him on the Reddit Wiki. It doesn't look as if he had the best career there:

    He meant well, but unfortunately didn't have the necessary emotional intelligence to prosper online where people are not going to go out of their way to mother him. Telling him to commit suicide, and other abhorrent things, is another level of reaction which is knowingly pernicious and not something that should be tolerated at all. As much as I like to disparage people, I think that it is important that internet communities like this strive to be as inclusive as is practicable. Morgsie had the requisite interest and dedication, but was unable to mollify other people's opinion of him and thus was alienated. Much of the Morgsie drama happened during one of my breaks, but I seem to remember many of the issues were of his own making. Such is life. One chapter in a long MHoC history.

    I sincerely hope he has found some way to be happy.

    It's horrible that people could say such things, even if he was annyoing them.

    I occasionally had a peek over there to see how he was getting on and some of the stuff that he was subjected to was absolutely vile. It wasn't just the suggestions that he should commit suicide. There were the horrible videos made as well - there is no doubt in my mind that those people who were banned got off very lightly on what really was probably a police matter.

    I think that the problem was that there were several minor things which happened early on during his time here which gave people a bad impression of him and which he struggled to change. While admittedly action was taken against some of the perpetrators, the problem was that he could never let what happened go and he would then attack people before they had a go at him, dragging up what happened in the past. Initially it was bullying here, but I would argue it eventually became six of one and half a dozen of the other.
