Hot Rod was arguably the worst of man kind.

It is probably to all our benefit that his genes were not passed on.

He’s probably not dead at all. I bet he is laughing his ass off right now.

His name is supposedly Clark D Johnson according to TJ.

So why is there is a Clark C Johnson in Kansas who also happen to have a nephew named Greg?

And Hot Rod supposedly died for the 2nd time on the same day, around Christmas. I don’t know. Too much weirds things in this story.

Hot Rod may be dead though. He probably got bored of this place because no one was here to talk with him for a couple of days, so he quit. But Clark Johnson is alive.

If he’s dead, post a picture of his body with a printed screenshot of utopiaforums.com on his chest.

I am beginning to want to write obituaries for more of you.

Did you really need to go completely over the top? Good satire would have left room for guesswork on if sammy had - or had not - penned the rememberance.

It would also have provided comfort for the family, no matter how misplaced the sentiment given the author's intent.

I feel like a total ass hole, but I truly laughed when I noticed someone wrote a "Little Davey Jones" entry.

i just read that actual lil davy post. it isn't that bad and it is an inside joke only we would get. any family of his who see it won't know it is about him being a pedo. so, id say, though a bit tasteless, it isn't nearly as bad as it couldve been.

Anything overtly bad would have been moderated.

But look at it this way: if you got hit by a bus and someone here doxed you, would you want even the slightest risk your family (particularly kids grandkids, whatever) being trolled? Even if they didn't get the full picture, they know that's someone taking the piss (they'd very likely know the story isnt real) and there's an outside chance they track it back.

Whats the upside vs the harm?

It's not trolling hot rod. He's dead. It's potentially trolling someone random stranger who just lost a close family member.

This is just basic human empathy.

2nd thread for reference: http://www...hread=83872&time=1546377370872

I know we're all hurting, but let's not devolve into Sebbishness; we can be truthful about HR and his time here without attacking others for not following Sebbish, backwards, monarchy-based morality. (I.e., Don't be Seb-baited.)

At any rate, Hot Rod may really be dead this time, but he once or twice did get to sit through people eulogizing him while alive (that is, if it really was him after the first and second "fake" deaths and not just someone taking over his sn). This scene from "Waking Ned Devine" (1998) comes to mind:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXe_kRQdHfU
If you haven't seen the movie, in this scene, Jackie O'Shea (Ian Bannen) is supposed to eulogize Ned Devine (who has actually died), but a man from the lottery, who must believe that Ned Devine is alive so that the town can collect Devine's winnings, walks in right before Jackie can start, so, instead, Jackie pretends that his friend, Michael O'Sullivan (David Kelly), has died and eulogizes him instead — Michael sits listening.

Hot Rod "had his faults", but that's part of being human. His faults weren't Sebbish with that kind of syphilitic dementia, but I think that his isolation let a polarized media control his patterns of outrage; if Fox News had broadcast a particular topic, then that topic was HR's for the duration of the news cycle. Fox News, like CNN, would identify enemies, and Hot Rod would come here to see if anyone could defend the thinking of these enemies.

Below the surface, HR wanted interaction. People can't talk back to "Fahrenheit 451" interactive TVs yet, so the conversation exists for places like UP. But it wasn't just his outrage he brought here. He wanted to share his favorite movies here, or his perception of old histories and cultural moments significant to him. A lot of it was so specific to his generation and his life that it was too obscure for responses... and still he tried to connect. Imagine finding yourself alone with references that few people know or acknowledge — like part of a demographic that only Turner Classic Movies entertains. Old celebrities die off many years after their last film appearance, and you can remember them still for when they were young and unattainable icons. Real-life friends fade away too. There's only a lifeless room holding memories that can no longer be activated because that requires a living motivation. All that's left is a simulated place where you can get attention for being outlandish, ridiculous, or sometimes Sebbish.

In short, you may not have liked HR, but did you like him less than Seb? The greatest tragedy of the miserable is that they die out of better order, with the soldiers burned while the cowards flee Troy. Wait, that wasn't my point. I meant to say that UP was Hot Rod's family. It was his last big connection to the world. That doesn't mean he wasn't awful, but it does mean something. Like that Seb is worse.

I didn't dox Hot Rod. I sought and gained permission from his remaining family to post his obit on this message board. If they hadn't approved I'd remained silent and he simply would have disappeared from the board.

Believe me when I say-I placed much thought into letting the board know that Hot Rod passed considering all his history in and out of UP. I had some long phone conversations with him over the years we've posted in UP. I was fully aware of the potential responses it would create. Kind of the proverbial two-edged sword.

If doing so turns out to be a mistake it probably won't be my last. What others do in this twilight zone is not my responsibility and I feel absolved of any guilt in that matter.

Clark was basically a shut-in due to affordability and physical disability. Utopia was the greater part of his life as time and age closed in on his world. I'm proud to have been called a friend by him even though I've never met him face to face. I tried to be a positive in his later life and hope the attempt lightened his loneliness, even if it was a small degree.

Unlike the song by Blood, Sweat and Tears "When I die", his brothers son is carrying on. He was married years ago, but had no children.

You absolutely did the correct thing. Most of us care (in one way or another). Its good that it be known.

Nothing is sadder than passing without remark.

Well that happened one time many years ago. There was this older guy, I don’t know remember his name anymore, but he was an older guy and was much like Hot Rod. This was back in the days when I was using my aj4a account and when Asgard and Stoffi(?) was around, and there was another guy from the US, a Palestinian I believe, but he was born in the US. We were discussing Israel a lot back then as you may remember. And we had this discussion with this older guy (maybe his name was Oscar?) and he kept on typing posts, defending Israel, until one day when he typed a post and it was only half finished. He had hit the submit button right in the middle of a sentence. It was an unfinished post. He was never heard of again. We thought that maybe he had a stroke or a heart attack and hit the submit button as he fell off his chair and died. He was gone without any remark. No one has seen him since.

Actually, there was a remark, but I meant to say that no one seemed to care a lot that he was gone. No RIP threads or anything like that.

I don't think you made a mistake by the way. We're all supposedly adults. If some don't know how to behave and can't figure out the potential for harm, that's on them.

The LDJ post must have been removed, I can't see it.

The "SA" post had me laughing though.

"In short, you may not have liked HR, but did you like him less than Seb?"

"I sought and gained permission from his remaining family to post his obit on this message board."

FWIW, I really appreciate it, TJ.

I'll miss that old fuck.

Powerwolf - Resurrection By Erection

Published on Nov 26, 2009


LYRICS:

When purgatory's waiting
And the girl immaculate
The highest of commandments dictates to copulate
No grave is animated, you're buried all alone
So let her work a wonder
And wake your flesh and bone

Resurrection by erection
Raise you phallus to the sky and you never die
It's resurrection by erection
Raise your bone up to the sky and you never gonna die
Hallelujah, resurrection

The funeral is calling
The mortuary blow
Between my legs I'm waking
I rise from down below
Why do you think believer
God gave you carnal lust
So pray to get a hard on
Before we turn to dust

The devil and the maiden
Prepare for going wild
The new messiah calling
The purgatory child
Before my flesh is fading
The virgin has a turn
The third of days we're climbing the point of no return

Resurrection by erection
When you wake up from the dead and the angels give a head
Hallelujah, resurrection

This is a song I wouldn't mind performed at my funeral, and so I send it to the memories of HotRod for better and worse and funny that we all share.

Reminder that hot rod had the highest post count by far but all of it was effectively spam.

He was tolerated because he was clearly demented. He's dead now and we should all be thankful.
