ONTD Political



Early Tuesday morning it was brought to our attention that koken23 was not who she was claiming to be, an accusation that was proven to be true within minutes.

She quickly released a statement:

"Jules is fictional. She's a character in a novel I've been writing - a younger version of the novel character - and I made this blog to flesh her out, to see if I could get into her head. Along the way, she became a sort of escape for me".

Thus, she was removed from her responsibilities as a moderator for not being real.

This post ruined my night.

...because the mention of MsScribe sent be back to the FW wiki and I reread all that shit, and read that article on the Stranger that was posted, and now I've spent 3 hours following links down the rabbit hole of the internet.

This was some pretty unfeeling shady stuff. :/

including me
one_hoopy_frood 9th-Dec-2012 07:00 am (UTC)
Yeah I used to go by an alias online and I told everyone it wasn't my real name. Now I don't go by anything on LJ because no1curr and I use my real first name for tumblr.
deathchibi 9th-Dec-2012 07:05 am (UTC)
What a twist!

... I'm so confused.

Well, this is LJ. Good decision by you folks, but somehow it doesn't seem very strange.

Between this and seeing a favorite local blogger getting duped on online dating (he even faked being a Canadian soldier who lost his legs in Afghanistan as a why he lied about not meeting her, after he said his Uncle died in a car accident AND THEN his mother dying. So when he got busted he pulled the injured soldier bit.)
This week has been deemed fucking weird in my books

I think she gave me a 'friendly' mod warning once ... for the use of sarcasm.

Good times.


oops!
evilgmbethy 9th-Dec-2012 12:17 pm (UTC)
LOL a mod warning for sarcasm
evilgmbethy 9th-Dec-2012 12:17 pm (UTC)
lol wow a character in a novel? damn I don't come around LJ much anymore and now I'm sorry, because I bet this would be some juicy shit if I knew what was going on

I've been trying to put my thoughts on this into a coherent fashion for half an hour, but I... I've got nothing.

It's just really unsettling.

And I feel really terrible for all the people this person "befriended" and confided in under false pretenses. What a horrible betrayal.

Interesting.
vanillakokakola 9th-Dec-2012 05:47 pm (UTC)
are we OT up in this post yet? because i just wrote the first short story that i've authored in like, a decade (seriously since high school at LEAST). i'm trying to put together a writing sample portfolio so i can start trying to apply for writing positions on the side, and i want some instant gratification (today's accepted currency is: feedback) for getting this done, damnit!

anyone want to give it a read? i threw it together over the course of just a couple hours last night and then did one round of quick edits, so it's still really rough, but i'm generally happy with it - http://tinyurl.com/avzp6q9

When do you need the feedback by?
shhh_its_s3cr3t 9th-Dec-2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
Sadly I was wondering when I would see something like this come to light on a comm here on lj. Its so common that I have lost a lot of faith in general that people are fundamentally honest and good. I knew someone who would create multiple personalities because her real life was such so much hell and sadness she couldn't function unless she escaped it. When I figured this out - I cut that cancer out of my life and then I got blamed for not being a good friend. GTFO with that crap.

I feel so badly for anyone who was betrayed by this person or anyone else like "her".

empirebird 9th-Dec-2012 07:11 pm (UTC)

vanillakokakola 9th-Dec-2012 07:15 pm (UTC)

jupisan 9th-Dec-2012 07:28 pm (UTC)
I wonder what made her come clean but to dupe military wives now that is just wrong.
lickety_split 9th-Dec-2012 07:32 pm (UTC)
Someone sent out a VERY DETAILED EMAIL (with links and caps!!!) to every comm she was involved in, detailing all of the evidence against her, and she was forced to come clean.

Suggesting she likely would have kept this up had she not been called out.

I have no idea what to say. Probably I just haven't been involved in the right fandoms, and I KNOW I haven't been on many LJ comms, but I'm still entirely speechless.

I'm not flabbergasted that someone would do something like this, because it's the internet and humanity and wherever the twain shall meet, et cetera, but I've never actually encountered it personally before, even peripherally. And then I got sucked into reading the entire account on msscribe, also, and I.

Internet. What are you.
i_amthecosmos 9th-Dec-2012 08:21 pm (UTC)
Shit like this happens in fandom all the time. I can think of several incidents spread over the last decade that I can remember. But this is pretty fucking low, to take advantage of military wives like that.
purplerains 9th-Dec-2012 10:09 pm (UTC)
What in the fresh hell...?

Does this mean her book will have a chapter on the trials and tribulations of ontd_p moderating?
johnjie 9th-Dec-2012 11:19 pm (UTC)
This is beyond fucked up....

I did think sometimes her comments about Australia were a bit hard to identify with...like her fight with mirhanda. I NEVER would have suspected anything like this, though
tamingheadfauna 10th-Dec-2012 12:02 am (UTC)
Dafuq I just read? O_o

There are not enough gifs on the Intertubes...

This reminds me of a girl I was on a board with years ago. She was sweet, and just about everyone liked her. When she got cancer, everyone was supportive, but eventually, the few people who never liked her figured out that she was stealing another girl's photo and making things up. It was a hard pill to swallow. She's kept this facade up for months.
