I'm conflicted about this post. On the one hand, it has nothing at all to do with Davis Square. On the other, I'm always happy to read of epic lulz in the hipster bike gang community. The only thing that woud make it better would be if turil was somehow involved. I mean, pywaket is there, so why not turil?

Update: lyonesse's original post.
Update 2: DSLJ dramawanking seems to have moved here.
Update 3: For the love of all that is holy make it stop!
Update 4: Phew!

I don't. It was poor judgment but it went away after substantial negative feedback from commenters.

It didn't actually go away. It's 53 comments long, and continues to be abusive.

But the post to davis_square was deleted, right?

The original one, yes. The one saying "I deleted the original post" which goes on and continues to name people lives and breathes, including such gems as "...was then abused on the scul bbs by sarah davitt et al (totally celibate afaik), and kicked out by skunk (happily monogamous last i heard). "

I've never met pywaket though I have many friends who count him as a friend, so I'm guessing he's OK. But really, he either has a talent for either picking the crazies or bringing out the crazy in anyone he's involved with (don't know enough about either turil or lyonesse to tell if they were this broken before they got involved with him).

My impression is that he's a poly drama magnet. Have no opinion on him as a person though. (Although I think I might want to start asking my dates "have you ever dated pywaket?" as a screening question!)

I usually ask: Have you ever been a member of an organization that goes to foreign countries uninvited and kills civilians?

I ask "have you ever been to the Goondocks?". It's not a deal-breaker, but I like to know.

I tried to post this comment a few minutes ago, but it failed because the original post had been deleted in the meantime:

Subject: As a mod, I'm uneasy with this post

It does not appear to violate any of the davis_square community rules as currently stated, so I'm not going to delete it (yet, anyway). But I'm still really uncomfortable with this very public airing out of a private dispute.

It could be that we don't have a rule about this simply because it has never happened before here.

I dunno. I'd say the Jonathan Monsarrat fiasco came pretty close.

Although that at least involved a public incident -- an entry in the Somerville police log, published in several newspapers. After over 525 comments, we mods adopted a one-time-only rule and cut off further discussion in that post.

Oh, I'm certainly not saying it's the same thing, although it sounds like this was entered in the SPD log as well. I'm just saying it's not completely unprecedented.

In particular, sharing your trauma with a group that is KNOWN to be extremely snarkful.

Wow, I am glad I missed the whole thing.

Jesus Christ, some people. Talk about your problems with your friends, not a bunch of people who want to know where to get a free burrito and what's going into the MaxPak space, yeah?

So, honest question: I'd never heard of SCUL before. Granted, I haven't lived in Davis Sq for years, so okay, maybe that figures.

I'm just trying to get a sense of... does anyone know who these people are?

They are people who do funky things with bikes and ride them around. scul.org is their website. BUT LOOK OUT THEY MIGHT PUSH YOU AND SAY MEAN THINGS ABOUT YOU

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I googled them and found them. :) My question was more: are they actually active in Davis Sq? "Oh yeah, I see them all the time" or "Yeah, once or twice" or "Who? Sculwha?"

They are based in Somerville and ride every Saturday night from April through October (baseball season, more or less). They don't always ride through Davis but they are indeed often seen in and around our city.

I see them a couple of times a year.

AND NOW I KNOW THE HORRIFYING TRUTH ABOUT THEM

seriously, I am completely confused as to what outcome she wanted, other than to feel better about what certainly do sound like upsetting experiences. My guess is that less than 5% of the people who read DSLJ regularly would ever think about doing the SCUL thing, so if it was "Warn people that this supposedly fun organization actually has some really dysfunctional behaviors" it's still not the place for that.
