"Flyer" Commenters Make Peace

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 8:12 AM

After nearly 18 months of arguments, insults, attacks, and disparaging remarks, regular Flyer commenters Oldtimeplayer, ArlingtonPop, GroveRebel, Driftboat, and Honey Nuts (aka ESAU, Dagon, and at least nine other fake names) have declared a formal truce.

"It was just time to stop this silliness," said OTP. "My people have been trying to win an argument on the Internet since the 1950s, and it hasn't happened yet. I'm beginning to think it's just pointless to try."

"I have to agree with OTP," said ArlingtonPop. "'Hey, I won an argument on the Internet'", said no one, ever. I mean, c'mon, who are we fooling here? We are just spinning our wheels. It's time to move on."

"It's true," said OTP, putting his arm around Pop's shoulders. "We ran into each other at Costco the other day, and we just decided to go have a beer and talk things out. Turns out my son is dating AP's niece. Small world, eh?"

"It's crazy how things work out, isn't it?" said AP. "OTP's a great guy."

GroveRebel, Driftboat, and HoneyDagonNuts announced plans to form a consulting group for the new Muni school systems. "We'll be much too busy working with Ron Ramsey and Mark Norris crafting boutique legislation to achieve exactly what we need in the 'burbs to be able to hang around the Flyer website kibitzing all day," said Driftboat. "In fact, it's even possible that I may actually move back to Memphis so that I can witness firsthand the fruits of my advice."

As of press time, the name of the consulting firm had not been determined. "Names we're considering include TruthBTold, Wiseguys, ESAUNICS, Heard-dat, Toldja, HoosierDaddy, bogeyman, and a few others," said Honey Nuts. "We just can't decide."
