"sup i just found this website yesterday and just discovered lotr 3 months ago. Ever since then I have watched all 6 movies, I have read the fellowship of the ring and i am reading the two towers. I have also done research into lotr lore such as the fall of gondolin, the creation of the ents, the elves, the men. Aswell as the orgins of sauron. I am looking to chat with a fellow fan for fun"

This is a new one on me. I wondered if it was mass-generated, as I can't think why I would be singled out by this user.

squire online:
RR Discussions: The Valaquenta, A Shortcut to Mushrooms, and Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit
Lights! Action! Discuss on the Movie board!: 'A Journey in the Dark'. and 'Designing The Two Towers'.
Archive: All the TORn Reading Room Book Discussions (including the 1st BotR Discussion!) and Footerama: "Tolkien would have LOVED it!"

Hmmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't seen this before, myself, but something does feel a little 'off' with it to me. But maybe I'm being paranoid.

It's likely spam [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, but [In reply to] Can't Post

If he was promised millions of inherited $s in Nigeria if hed only share his bank account number, he might not be willing to share that with everyone and dilute his wealth.

Im still waiting for my big deposit from Nigeria. Should be any day now, especially since Ive answered all those offers.

I also received this pm [In reply to] Can't Post

And the author has already posted here about getting into the Boards.
I encouraged him (?) to go to the Reading Room and Movie Discussion Boards (included direct links) to find some great conversations. I truly think we have a newbie just finding his way around the place :) I see he's posting/interacting since then.


We have been there and back again.
