I don't remember specifics

but while a small part of me feels bad that he was traumatized (even though I'm pretty sure I barely interacted with him at all), a much larger part of me thinks that anyone that thin-skinned should recognize their sensitivity and remove themselves from potentially trauma-inducing situations,In other words, since Ricky was on the receiving end of many a flamewar from the very beginning, he probably should have left Babble right away. There was another kid who posted as Sherlock, who I kinda liked and had posted on George's board with Patrick and me, who was basically the same. But in his case, after a few weeks of getting shit from Stuart and the others and not being able to handle it, he left and never came back. I thought it was a shame at the time but in retrospect, it was probably the right decision. Definitely better than having to endure one of the "roughest nights of your life".
And Ricky, if you're reading this- if one of the roughest nights of your life was truly the result of an internet flamewar, you should thank your lucky mother####ing stars
