Realist asks "where is loud-mouth Andy?" Doomers attempt re-write of history. Once Andy's "Visa is Toast" link is posted, thread gets 'zapped'!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Deleted Thread : One Thread
I didn't save a copy but the gist was this....a realist (not me) asked "where is loud mouth andy? Remember his VISA predictions?" Several doomers say "he is busy". I post (anon) that he crawled back under his rock after y2k was a bust. Smartass doomer makes attempt at revisionist history, says, "Andy was only hoping he wouldn't have to pay his VISA bill"
After I posted "Andy says 'Visa is Toast' " the thread got zapped, but toasted visa thread is still intact.
I guess the nazi mods don't want links to embarrassing info posted about their favorite regulars.

The VISA link is from 98 and has some interesting comments by chuck "the mad deleter" Rienzoo

I love this stuff - wacky Andy drooled on for years about the "big bang" of Y2K. Where is he now? Does he have a red face? Is he trying to buy his car back? giggle...
