One Year of No Nutz

1) Firstly apologies to FR. They originally asked us to NOT commemorate our blog victory over the delusional moron known as Hockeynutz. However, being that today is the one year anniversary that that imbecile finally gave up his insane/ perverse fascination with this blog we simply couldn't allow it to go by without mention.

2) For those who have become readers in the past year and are unaware of what occurred not long after this blog started almost 3 years ago until last July, an individual(s) located in the Calgary Alberta region (determined by IP address) quickly became amazingly obsessed with everything that we wrote here. He'd comment on almost every post we'd make with accusations of plagiarism, etc. He even started to make up several blog names to additionally comment here. The pinnacle of his audacity occurred in February of 2007 when employing the help of a computer hacker (or himself?) he stole our original blog. We hesitate to publish what it became, but to illustrate what kind of a sicko this guy is, we will.

3)As you can see even after he stopped his blog he briefly continued the ruse of mirroring this blog on the old site. FR's new approach of comment moderation coupled with alerting everyone of his tactics must have made his job near impossible and he slowly has lost interest. (Perhaps his parents took his computer away? LOL) We still occasionally see him pop up and use the Fauxrumors name on other sites to try to discredit the blog. Thankfully never to success. We have long since moved on and continue to grow. As we come close to our 3rd anniversary of doing this, we want to thank everyone who has assisted us in this endeavour!
As always, keep it here for all the latest!



1) Oh FR2, you just had to! LOL You know that he recently wrote a response on here so we know he's still lurking.
2) Unfortunately its this kind of post that will probably get him (more) active on here. Sorry, we would have preferred to "allow sleeping dogs to lie".
3) Hey, any word where we'll be heading in August on our annual Fauxrumors vacation? Last year in Argentina was awesome!

I must say that it has been a pleasure since he's been gone. His antics were cluttering up the blog and making it hard to read.

1) Sorry FR. We simply had to commemorate the anniversary. We wrote this a few weeks ago before Nutz's most recent posting. Sorry if he 'surfaces' more often
2) Yes, the vacation destination is finalized, but as usual it will be a surprise for everyone until the day of! It'll be hard to top last year's Patagonia trip, but we'll give it a shot. ; ) said...

I remember that guy. He tried to stir up some trouble over at my place but I blocked his IP address and never heard from him again.

Good riddance I say!
