1. Warning to members of The Wilson's Fan Forum: Your identity may be revealed to Facebook. I have recently received the messages below from strangers.
2. Warning to Facebook'ers: You will be reported to Facebook. In addition, you will forfeit your right to anonymity when you send inane messages like the following. Every time I receive one of these, it will be posted here for public viewing.
(1) facebook Elke sent you a message.
Elke DiederichAugust 23, 2010 at 11:09pm Subject: ha ha!! OMG!! this is you!!!
You Wilsons are such a bunch of losers!!
(2) facebook Lisinda sent you a message.
Lisinda HarringtonAugust 31, 2010 at 5:29pm Subject: figures... That anyone who spends every single day posting to a board about movie stars is a dried up old hag. The others are quite the non lookers as well, the chubby Indian, the chubby girl, the other fat girl...
Hi, I'm new here. I read both your posts on this subject and I have a few things to say on the matter.
First, your confusion as to how people visiting this site have found you on Facebook? It took me all of 5 min to notice the thread called "my space and facebook" where you all have put links to them.
Second, it sucks someone is so mean but I doubt reporting them to facebook will do anything. You are allowed to send anyone on facebook a message and someone sending you a note telling you you are unattractive hardly counts as harassment. They will just tell you to block that person.
When you google things on the Wilsons this site comes up a lot. Maybe one of their friends somehow found it and it made them mad.
Lastly, anyone can create a facebook account using any name so you trying to publicly shame them seems silly. And even if it is that is really the persons real name I doubt they will be embarassed by you publicly posting , Lisinda and Elke think I am unatractive!
First, thanks for the reminder that I had posted a link to my Facebook page here. I have since gone through that thread and deleted all my links. You see, since I DO have a life (which I've been accused of NOT having), I'd forgotten I was there. If you'll notice, that thread is quite old; it has not been updated for some time.
Second, I find it disturbing that people have nothing better to do with their time than to search the members here, select ONE, and post an insulting message to that one (who did nothing to them). Though several others have posted links to themselves here, nobody else has reported receiving unsolicited, unfriendly messages. Just me.
Thirdly, I understand you consider this "silly," but you do not know my history here. This used to be a friendly message board. It is not anymore, and I do not know why all the bitterness seems to be directed at me. If you know why I deserve it, I'd appreciate your sharing that information with me.
In addition, I never said I was being "harassed." That is your word. I said I've received messages from strangers, wondered why I am being singled out for them, and asked if others had received similar messages. And I did not report "harassment" to Facebook. I chose the "Insulting message" option. To the best of my knowledge, there is no "Harassment" option, but I could look again.
I don't know what - if anything - happens to Facebook "insulters." I do not expect anything to happen from Facebook that will benefit me. I only did the one thing Facebook suggests.
In addition, I have no way of knowing if Elke Diederich and Lisinda Harrington are these ladies' true identities. (I don't even know if they are females). I never said these are their real legal names but it's pretty clear to me that those are the names from whom I received my messages.
Lastly, yes, since the cat is already out of the bag, I do expect to continue to receive more messages like these. I posted their names here to alert other members as not all the members here look at the Day-To-Day Chat thread. That's all. I apologize if creating this thread has offended you. If the administrators want to delete this thread, they have the right to do so.
Thanks again, and #welcome# again. I look forward to reading your contributions to this forum and sharing our admiration for the Wilson Brothers & Wes.
Oh, sorry, one more thing: My attractiveness (or lack thereof) is not the issue. Clearly, my photo proves I am not attractive. However, I have never CLAIMED I am attractive or that I ever was attractive.
So, for the record, let it be publicly known: I hereby do confess my ugliness.
Despite my lack of beauty, I have and have had a great life for which I try to be thankful for every day. I'm very sorry that others have not had great lives and thus feel the need to vent their frustrations on strangers.
Edited to add: Will my confession satisfy those who feel the need to remind me of my lack of beauty? Probably not, given their own insecurity about themselves.

This is really funny because i haven`t been a member for very long, yet i`ve seen comments againest this forum on youtube and perez hilton.I think it`s almost certainly personal. Maybe an old member who had issues with others on here..I noticed when i posted something a while back, ppl on here got really ticked off and assummed i wasn`t really a luke fan. Also a very close friend of mine was a member a year or so ago and she left because she posted something about owen and many on here went into attack mode..Yet what she posted is something that many ppl online talk of...Thats why i think ppl keep attacking this forum..Texasgal i`ve always thought that facebook was a little evil. just ignore them and they will go away faster..Don`t let the truely ugly people in this world get you down.
Like I said, I have not been here more then a few days and my comments are the opinion of a newbie with fresh eyes on the matter. I don't really think your cantankerous response to me was necessary.
..In addition, I never said I was being "harassed." That is your word... And I did not report "harassment" to Facebook..there is no "Harassment"
Yes, I used the word harassed. It does sound to me like you were saying you are being harassed by these people. Yes, it is my choice of word. What word would you prefered me to have used?
I did not know what happens when you report someone to facebook and that there are different sorts of options. I would just assume that you would only report someone who is in fact, harassing you and not just saying something mean.
You are also offended that I said I used the word silly. Well I do think it is silly that you have stated In addition, I will post these people's names on a publicly-viewable thread that I will create so that these FB posters will know how it feels to have their anonymity broken. Perhaps, in time, even a loser like YOU may grow tired of your joke. because like I said it may not even be their name or not and I doubt any posting of their name will be in anyway humiliating to them.
You brought up these two points AGAIN on the day to day chat thread, again being cantankerous and rude about me and my opinion I had.
Still, I kind of resent that my message was dismissed as "silly" as I have done nothing to Elke and Lisinda to deserve it. I don't even know who the hell they are. And I never called it "harassment." That is not the word I used to describe what happened. All I did to report Elke and Lisinda to Facebook was use the "Insulting message" option in my complaint - for whatever good that does. Maybe this sort of thing happens to Brigit all the time, and that's why she thinks nothing of it. But it's rather new to me, and it's the first 2x I've reported anyone to FB.
I would guess that the attacks from these people may have come to you because you seem to be the top poster here. Someone coming to this site who found offense with it maybe wanted to lash out at someone and your name seems to pop up the most.
Anyway, thank you for my insincere welcoming to the board. I don't think I will be hanging around. You talk about it used to be a nice place and now it has turned mean and nasty, but in my short introduction to you I have found you to be quite mean, nasty and unpleasant.

This is a really sad situation - I'm glad you told us all about it, texasgal, and I appreciate you making the message public because a lot of members like me don't usually hang out in the members only areas of the forum. Thank you.
It's ridiculous to try and stalk someone online like these women are doing. No one is going to be impressed with what they are saying; and all of us who know you know that what they are saying is wrong and undeserved. You're a beautiful person and we all know that, texasgal. I think you are right to point out that people who do this kind of thing have something missing in their own lives, and they hope to raise their low self-esteem by tearing other people down. Anyone who is experienced at life knows that physical attractiveness is irrelevant here, not only because it's online, but also because in life, we often meet people who seem ugly and unattractive to us at first, but then we realize over time that they are a wonderful person and we bond with them and see their true beauty. Conversely, someone who appears to be beautiful on the outside often exposes just how hideous and cruel their real nature is; and over time, they become less and less attractive to us.
If there's any place where a person's true nature shines through, it's online. Someone who bothers someone and makes catty comments about their appearance on facebook has a sad, sorry nature.
The other thing that was funny - that attempt to make us think that the guys "hate" the forum. I highly doubt that, but I doubt even more that they would tell someone if they did hate the forum, especially someone who would repeat what they had said and who is apparently having trouble with self-control when addressing strangers on the internet. No matter what the guys really think, they would not announce disliking any of their fans, both because they are actually decent guys who are professionals and they would consider it ungentlemanly to say something as ungrateful as that, but also because they know their audience and they appreciate their audience support. We're a group of women with a lot of disposable income and power at the box office and DVD retailer, and they know that. The only kind of fan activities that I would imagine really bother them are the examples we can all think of - like that time the girls left underwear on the family front lawn in Dallas and their dad mentioned it in an interview, and times when fans were in their face taking photos and bothering them in public during their private time. People like us on the internet know our place and don't bother them inappropriately in public. We know that would be wrong and unwelcome. If anything we're the kind of fans they like, because we post photos and say positive things and encourage other people to be their fans too. We give good buzz. We don't take the negative things in the press seriously, and when we know something negative isn't really true, we say so, and we remind others of the goodness in each of the guys. I'm glad you all liked the photos I posted of Owen doing charity work, for example. The ones from the Navy hospital in San Diego were on the hospital's wiki commons, their administrators must have been very proud to have Owen visiting. It's stuff like that that we share with each other, and I think we all appreciate it, and I bet the guys at bottom don't mind that we do that.
My only suspicion? We're probably not even registering for the guys most of the time, we're not even on their mind enough to hate or to love. They are busy living their own lives, and the only people they think about negatively are fans who are in their faces at inappropriate times in public when they want privacy, and the only people they are thinking about positively are their friends, girlfriends, and relatives. We are neither, we're neutral, and we just aren't that big of an issue. So try not to worry, just keep on being you. We all think you are fine, and we know you are kind and good and filled with inner beauty. Don't let people hoping for attention get to you.
Hi thanks Texasgal for the heads up....as for why I am so sorry to hear this happens to folks esp. you...BTW even tho I don't know you personally U are not ugly...Don't say that about yourself...
As for those folks who post unfavorable remarks about the Wilson Boys and try to shine them off as fact --- Prove "em" (and I am not talking about just someones opinion either....everyone has one of those and that is one's choice....)
The positives about all the Wilson boys have been proven time and again....As for whether or not the Wilson boys hate the site I doubt it, that would be like stepping on your own foot for no reason...After all, what they do for a living is just a job and they make wonderful movies. Who and why would they hate a site that supports them in their movies and admires them from afar as fine examples of kind, caring and common sense fellows that are pretty to look at and have a great sense of humor...
Remember this... every member of this site sought it out not the other way around...and it is a nice place to visit and chat about the Wilson Boys....
Hi. Haven't been here in awhile, but hey look... excitement!
Anyway, there is a simple explanation for these two Facebook messages...
You Wilsons are such a bunch of losers!!
That anyone who spends every single day posting to a board about movie stars is a dried up old hag. The others are quite the non lookers as well, the chubby Indian, the chubby girl, the other fat girl...
BTW, the Wilsons HATE your silly little site
They are most likely from those resentful old witches from the former Wilson Brothers site. They're obviously still bitter about their site being shut down. Such a shame that was. But the only thing we can do at this point is feel sorry for them and hope they find solace in their everyday routines of tracking down former members and trying to make them feel like s h i t. (It's not working by the way, sweethearts. #wink# ) It is unfortunate that the previous altercations had to happen. Although, that probably was all part of their evil plan.
OK. That's all for now. Hope everyone has a GREAT week. I know I will. #banana1# <--- I LOVE that guy!
I haven't been here in a while, but I'm going to be cleaning this place up this week.
If you have more than one account on here, and you don't delete your old account(s) yourself asap, I'll delete it for you. Anybody with an old account and zero posts will be deleted as well.
If you send or post anything insulting or harassing to any other member here and I find out about it, you will be deleted. Keep signing up with different usernames, you'll be blocked. If anyone has been harassed recently via PM, please send me a screenshot of the message with the username in view - don't copy and paste something to me, those are too easily altered. If you've been harassed on the board, send me a link.
If you don't like what goes on here or our policies and decide to leave (with or without a hissy fit), be an adult and stay gone. If this site isn't a good fit for you, find one that is. Or start one yourself!
If you're so bored that you get joy out of cyberstalking members here, get a new hobby. This is not going to be fun for you anymore.
@ Lisinda, and all the aliases you use here, It's time for you to move along. Once your accounts have been disabled/deleted, don't bother coming back under a new username. We'll know it's you. (It only took me about 10 minutes to find all your accounts this morning.) We also have the ability to track when you lurk here even if you don't log into an account.
BTW, despite what you may believe, Facebook has very low tolerance for your type of behavior. Keep it up and you won't be able to post there either.
