Ribecca Confesses!

Thread starter #1
In a couple of other threads, I have been accused of being Fred Schroth, who is fairly widely known as the original Rebecca at DrLaser.

I confess. I am Fred Schroth. I don't know why I didn't think it would be so obvious.

Psych!

Ribecca is tribute to Rebecca.

Re: Clearance on rudder fixation

And exactly where does that leave Freddie Eynsford-Hill ?
Honeybear, I dumped Freddie when I learned to enunciate. Now I'm with Lars.* Lars is a very secure man, and he doesn't mind that I post here. Sometimes I don't understand though, when I tell him what I'm posting, he rolls his eyes. ??

Lars is a big red haired sailor. I just love those big red haired sailors. Oooh!!

*Lars' name is changed to protect me.


In Rebecca for President, Rossie clearly states:

I want the whole pie, I want to be Pres of ILCA

Hey Bradley!! You probably need to delete this thread. Internet identity theft is a crime and your forum is assisting whoever claims to be "ribecca" with commission of that crime.

It proabably would NOT be a good idea to give Me good reason to collect damages from The Forum, the advertisers, the Laser class association which is smewhat affiated with this forum and of course Vanguard...the controller of copyrights for all things sailing and Laser.

For starters...

The apologies and efforts by this forum to clear my good name would begin with:
publication of the email address used by "Ribecca" when that member joined this forum.
Publication of any other identifying information related to "ribecca."
The exact computer address and etc.

Thank you for any help in finding this felon.

Fred

The big problem is what kind of symbol is needed on Ribecca's sail. She appears to be a transsexual (?) Radial sailor :)

No the big problem is the writer has crossed the line from having fun to breaking the law.

Impersonation is a serious crime.

It is now time to delete 100% of the Ribecca posts and all quotes of those posts.

Thank you!

At no time did Ribecca claim to be Fred Schroth. Ribby is a lover, not a warrior, so she will leave the forum. This makes some of you happy, and I apologize to those I’ve offended, including Ross. Ross, please avoid the mindless posts. You have a lot to offer otherwise. To my fans, it was fun while it lasted, darlings!

Must I also quote the very first post on this thread??

If you had not made that false and libelous post I would not be bothered in the slightest by your otherwise fun and entertaining postings.

Rib, my sugar-cookie.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO READ, NOW??? Y O U want to leave us??
NO!!
!!INACEPTABLE!!

No reason to leave TLF, Rib!!

This is what my idea has been for you an Ross (Hi Roos, good sailing mate, stay wet!) that I posted as an idea, of course, to a good friend of mine at TLF, only a couple of days before today:

Quote:

Hi YZXWV,
yes I think so, too: "Rib" could be Fred. Haha, what a joke. You know, I wrote to remain neutral. But lets make a big joke out of it and write, that this both, Ross and Rib, should have their "dirty race" soon at the "Masters Worlds 2007"at Roses/Spain this year. I am sure, it is permitted to write, that Jeff Martin probably gives them a wild-card and perhaps a sponsor donates them a ticket for the airplane ;) :)

37 members of the ILCA-NA (Tracy will be there, also) surely take care, that the rules for such a race will be used correct. Also, it would give the chance to introduce all three to the world council (the board of the ILCA, including all builders representatives etc pp.). So they may immediately vote for complete new, different rules for the Laserclass, as they wanted to have (new sails, lower prices etc), ha ha.

Perhaps YZXWV, you find someone of the ILCA-NA at TLF that write this "idea" at TLF at the open section thread of "Rib".... ;)

OOOKAAAY, my sweet "Radis'chen"(translated from GER to English: "Radischen"="radish" / "Radi"="Radial sailor" / "-chen"=small), you, perhaps not get the next Chair"man" of the ILCA-NA... who cares about..., but, look forward! Tracy is the best ILCA-NA chairman I know (without thinking to that "old granty silverback from Austin/Tex") in the moment and Roos: if he learns how to deal perfect between the interests between "us" the Laserites of the ground and the Laser pros, the functionairs of whoever of sports 'n' big business (like Tracy [with his experience, he got from the 1st day he has been volonteer at your ILCA-region] this business already perfectly diplomaticly is doing), will solve the future of a successful Laser Class and member Olympic Family - seen from the side (your side) as one of the biggest parts of all ILCA regions, NA, I am the opinion.


Rib, BE LIKE YOU ARE and ALWAYS: "very close at the neck" of all of us here and we have a well-"catharsis" (Old G, Merrily, explain with your native language what I mean, please, if you want, thanks. You both know, I talk/write in "English for runaways"...)".

Rib, "Schaetzchen", find your own way here! - Like all the other nice sweet ladies that are here at the Laser Class (F.e.: Petra Niemann, from GER, that decided to change from Europe to Laser-Radial... and we here, at the GER-Laser-family, love her so much for that she's done have that decision in the past, believe me),

a sailing class for everyone, that enjoy sailing, socializing and the very special way of living free and hike hard since 1971. Amen. ;)

Cheers

one of those "big red haired sailors" (of GER, of course)

@Bradley, I don't think that there has to be deleted something.

It feels like a whirlwind has gone through here. Has the dust settled? I have a number of questions.

First, I am Looser Lu’s friend, YZXWV. Lu, you make me sound like I’m from West Virginia. Close. My response to him was, I don’t think that Fred is Ribecca. I still don’t think so. Fred is quite clever and I didn’t see that so much in Ribecca. Her humor was mostly based on innuendo.

In addition, Fred is much more sarcastic than Ribecca. His posts are also much longer than hers (his?). Ribecca was brief.

Ribecca made me cringe, but she also made me laugh.

So I’m wondering why Fred drove Ribecca away. He can’t seriously claim he doesn’t know the meaning of “psyche.” Well, for anyone who doesn’t know, it means “not.” It’s especially puzzling because he waited several days after Ribecca’s explicit “I am not Fred” confession before he threatened a lawsuit. Was Fred’s threat a joke? I honestly don’t know.

I do know that he got several pretty good suggestions for bumper stickers in the latter posts over in that thread. Ribecca put in some effort. It seems to me that he has no right to use any of them now. You can’t have it both ways, “honeybear.”

The post demanding removal of Ribecca's postings was made within minutes of my discovery of the claim made by that poster to be Fred Schroth.
Obviously I cannot allow anyone to seriously impersonate me.
I have absolutely no problem with obviously fake and humorous impersonation and I am even flattered that anyone would do so.
If in fact I missed the meaning of the first post on this thread, and if that post is clearly meant as a claim not to be me, and if that post is edited to make that point absolutely clear, I will back off and allow and even endorse the Ribecca posts as a contribution to the entertainment value of this forum.

I think we should all confess to being Fred Schroth and put an end to this sham forum.
Old G, I hope you mean "sham" thread. You aren't referring to TLF, are you?

What is a sham about this thread? I think it's pretty straightforward. Ribecca said she is not Fred Shroth. Fred misunderstood. Ribecca left. Do you think it's a sham because you still think that Ribecca is Fred?

It's time to come clean and admit that everyone on this forum is Fred Schroth and so on behalf of us all I confess and say that I am tired of talking to myself. Good night.

PS. Now I am going to have to threaten to sue myself for impersonating myself.

PPS. Psych.
