You can never know who is truly behind an online handle or who is at your meetings.
Sometimes people are fools but it is important to reserve judgement. On a message board over 13 years ago this interesting exchange happened between two webmasters. One would go on to be in a partnership with others that would form some of the largest brands in adult entertainment.
Notice the handle name: Brazzer. Sound familar?
on archive.org you can find at the bottom of the page referencing boneprone and GFY. Interesting to read what the owner Brazzer read at that time.
For better context you can read the full thread here: GFY Thread (WARNING some adult content).
While referencing an adult webmaster forum may seem a little off, the lesson here is how much boneprone missed out on by being a bit of a trollish asshat. Thing is boneprone’s antics would later get him in legal trouble. Still, boneprone had massive success but he really shot himself in this instance. He would troll Brazzer in other threads as well.
As MaDalton said, “and that, kids, is why you should be always nice to other people…”
