That time someone put my head on Hitler's body.

Just another day at work.

A month or so ago, I had to ban a member from the forum I moderate. He didn't take it well. Since the reason I had to ban him was erratic and abusive behavior, I shouldn't  be surprised that he's responded with erratic and abusive behavior. 
He created a copycat forum and used my photo, obviously without my permission, to make it appear I was the site administrator. When he was told in no uncertain terms to stop, well, I guess we poked the bear. A creative bear. And a kind of mean bear. My head isn't THAT big, is it?

The above photo is posted under a thread titled "What is wrong with Meg" and the commentary suggests I should get my head out of somewhere it doesn't belong. 

Another thread, this one called "Meg has been BANHAMMERED", reads, 

Meg Has been BANHAMMERED! and her ip address has been BLOCKED!

And then this:

I'm sorry if the above image causes seizures.

Before you freak out and call me to make sure I haven't been murdered, relax. This guy doesn't know my last name. He has no idea where I live. He has no way of finding out. 

That said, I'm starting to really empathize with politicians and religious leaders. I feel confident in assuming that most of them know the pain of having entire webpages created in their dishonor. 

Maybe I should be flattered that I've reach such notoriety, but instead I find myself looking around, looking at my poorly photoshopped neck and blinking Banned for Life! insignia, and asking how my life led me to this point. 


  1. This is a horrible and bizzare situation, but can I say - "you make being a Nazi look so wholesome and lovely." I mean, can I say that, really? Or is that too offensive?

  2. Oddly, this picture has made me love you more than I even thought possible. Not because of the picture itself (obvs) but seriously? You are the best of everyone.

    1. That is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me in a blog comment. Or possibly ever.

  3. Simultaneously the best and worst thing I've ever seen.

  4. I saw the title and KNEW this would be about the forum you moderate. If it makes you feel any better, you look really great in that photo. If I were in your forum I would make you a fanpage.


Don't be shy.
