one of the nastiest and also one of my favourites was one i inadvertently brought up in a search recently which is about four years old and by some miracle still here:
[dane] county board -- who is running where and why?topic nº 1459
local politics & government - started 08. december 2003, last post 10. march 2004, 82 posts total
a poster with the screen name hans grüber (now rendered by the software to look something like "grabifker"...what would it do to the names milošević, karađžić, šandor, čepek, karađorđević, or dvořak, i wonder) started griping about p.d.c. (a group that in the main is fine with me, they are the s.p.d. to our c.d.u./c.s.u., s.p.ö. to our ö.v.p. or whatever u prefer) and was soon saying "bring it on bitch!". i know the guy and to this day don't know what set him off that night. maybe it was a bout of hard drinking and/or a run-in with unreasonable people? i wish he would come back to i.d.p.f. (fix his screen name, maybe, so he can log in? just one theory) so he could tell the story himself, but here goes the inside reference as i understand it to the best of my knowledge and belief:
the incident to which herr grüber was referring was part of a series of incidents related to an earlier incarnation of i.d.p.f. -- back in the day his brother was dissing a politician for being an arsehole, prevaricator and other things, so one of the politician's lovers/wholesalers/snuff film investors looks up who he thinks
it is in the telephone directory and goes pounding on his door and shouting at 3 in the morning (that's right folks, 03.00, 09.00 gmt u know?) and wakes up all the neighbours, and everyone in the house, including his sister who wants to go downstairs with a baseball bat and cousin who wanted to weaponise a 100-count bottle of scopolamine tablets with a hammer and rolling-pin and blow it in the guy's face with one of those air horns people take to basketball games.
but the fellow doing doors for his beloved wanker politician at 03.00 on a thursday morning was off by 8 km/5 miles or so. the recipient of the visit had not written anything on i.d.p.f. to that point but came to share the views of the actual writer for different reasons in time, and became an i.d.p.f. poster about three years later when living in a community outside the city and m.m.s.d.; longer-term i.d.p.f. readers may remember him as the original proponent and later an assistant editor of a digest of fox river valley news and a spinoff animal news periodic post which appeared in one of the news categories.
the brother got his abuse soon enough in the form of an angry, coked-up phone call and an apparent, also mis-executed "outing" attempt on i.d.p.f. (posted by this arsehole hypocritcally using the cover of anonymity then available on the board) as far as anyone knows, the name posted was some hapless activist or someone with a similar name who had nothing to do with the row -- it got erased too so i can't say for certain who.
i was also told at the time that the perpetrator "had a police file that takes a big irish cop to lift." sounds like some of the bosses in places i've worked...
about a month later someone threw a bag of nº 10 steel washers and a half-eaten submarine sandwich from iron mike's super subs through the window of his front porch, and herr grüber himself got a series of drunken and unintelligible voice mail messages from a central madison exchange at the approximate same time, even though he already lived in milwaukee at the time and also did not post to i.d.p.f. well, until he started getting drunken calls from madison, i guess.
damn, people sure got sensitive & tetchy about that cow. one of the other time-bomb high-traffic posters here who is a big radio personality and tough guy and shit tried to get me censored for questioning the party line in my own indelicate way...well, i say funk that faction of the d.c.d.p. & n.w.p.c. and their dupes within the labour movement in the lower intestinal tract with a big rubber dick. do a god damn colonoscopy on them with a chainsaw for all i care. it is not heresy, and i will not recant! that's my two gröschen and fsck u if u don't like it.
