I did a quick stroll through the site members and realized the screen names are a topic unto themselves. I’m FishGuy, for the uncreative and obvious reason that I’m a guy, and I fish. Players in my posts are Mrs. Fish, Ancient Cat (my avatar), Backup Cat, Bulldog, and assorted adult children including Sailor Son and MMA Daughter.
So, who are you? More importantly why are you?

I am Snake DeGrasse, because like Neil deGrasse Tyson, I'm really fucking smart - take my word for it. Plus, I'm cold-blooded and squirmy. I like my fish alive and whole. If it's served any other way, I'll demand to see the chef ... and bite him.
As a teen in the late 70’s I was a fan of Mad Magazine so I figured paying homage to Alfred E. Neuman fit perfectly with how I’ve felt toward these AVers the last couple of years- mad, flipping them off, and the surname all seemed apropos. Fortunately living in the Boston area I don’t cross paths with too many of them, but reading the entries from this community has been both entertaining and informative.
Well, I am still The Mustress Mhor, and I still write a blog about the village butcher.
Ha ha. When I first read and responded to this thread, I didn't realize how long it was. Fish Guy really had our pulse measured when he originated this.
Many interesting stories and information were shared and some clarification about those who have loosely assembled here. I read every post and "liked" the comments. Sharing a "like" is something I often fail to do as my mind is usually in gear otherwise to comment or ponder what content I just read.
To summarize overall, here we strike out at the heart of some deeply troubling issues (AVER'S +), and that which can be justly identified as evil ignorance of varying/shocking dimensions. Hopefully, we help turn the light on for some. Thanks to all who participate and of course the site originator, Vaxman.
Oh. I see this thread has a lot of common interests.
I picked this name out of the air to make an anonymous account. Dip as the content scooped from a portion from a larger container or well. Or it could be a dipsheit.
A dibbler is a mechanism that plants seeds or it could be someone who can't spell dribbler (and needs a bib) . One could take a Dip from a well and water the dibbled hole of seeds.
My history is varied and somewhat Forest Gumpish being that events seem improbable even to me. My family and children have been my greatest sources of both happiness and pain. I am fairly reclusive at this point in the game. I live in a nearly vacant apartment having discarded or had stolen those "things" in life as once attained, they became meaningless in the grand scheme (whatever that is). I have no feminine touch in my existence.
Change is the only permanence in life and easier with less baggage and less bragging. Still, I am compelled to plant the seed.
I recently reread Siddhartha by Herman Hesse; a book I first read in my teens. Is that weird enough 4 yah? lol.
Ex army medic, ex anaesthetic technician, ex grass cutting contractor. Sports therapist is another ex. I have a degree in Geology with Heritage Management and retired now..I worked as a field geologist. I am an internet fraud expert with an advisory website that is a tidy income. My big retire hobby is archaeology and I discovered an amazing historical site, a water mill control complex built by Josiah Easton the Hydraulic Ram and canal man, but it goes back to mediaeval...That is just my earthly manifestation because in reality I am a demi god and a nautical man
Boy, can I empathize. My son was a heroin addict for years, but when he got into the meth, he went crazy. Almost everything you read about that drug is true. My son had so many paranoid hallucinations that we had to kick him out of our home. I have no idea what he is in jail for, but I can guess. I'm hoping he cleans up while incarcerated, but he told Mrs. F and me that if it came down to anything in life vs. drugs, the drugs were always going to win. So I have little faith that he will rehabilitate, yet I try to remain positive. Hoping the same for your brother.
Well, just guess!
I'm an old, married, retired guy with two sons--one a successful business owner and one a meth head currently in jail (after being homeless). I despise antivaxxers who shitpost--the others are almost as bad, but I reserve most of my venom for the former. I have an ex-friend of 40+ years who decided an anti-Trumper and a vaxxer was no longer his idea of a crony, so to say I am bitter would be a gross understatement.
I feel I am among friends here.
I am TaxTheChurches. Why? Because tax breaks for social clubs, particularly those who want to ram feed me their madness, are unacceptable.
My chili cook off team doesn’t get taxpayer funding. Why should a church.
Live in Oklahoma, listen to punk over country, spent most of my life in Asia and Africa. Finding the reality of America to be a grave disappointment.
Thank you I will. We have same idiots like everywhere else , but much smaller scale ,of course ,because my country has only 10.5 million people .
There is some social web by name seznam.cz and you can read conspiracy theories from Czech people. Btw. Slovakia is even worse that Czech r. Many my eastern Slovak realitives are fans of Putin . Eastern Slovakia borders with Ukraine .Mind blowing right?
Thank you very much ❤.
I'm true Czechoslovak , born in Slovakia ,raised in Czechia
I visited national park and saw many bears that's why I chose hugging bears avatar . I'm not good in English language that's why my post are usually so short . I really enjoying reading your posts.
My name is " cizinka" this word in my language means foreign
Great forum topic, Fishy! Pretty straightforward name choice for me...being absolutely sick and tired of the "astounding levels of stupidity", and seeing that most of the idiots were either anti-mask, anti-vaccine, anti-Fauci, anti-"protacol" (sic)...I decided I needed to be "Anti" something myself. Anti-phucktard expresses my loathing for the stupid and contemptible. And not to pick on stupid people per se, but those who know better yet actively choose to make stupid decisions that harm both themselves and others.
My avatar uses the icon from TWIV (This Week In Virology) that is one of the greatest sources of accurate and up to date science on all things SARS-CoV-2--vaccines, therapeutics, long COVID, etc...The Saturday "COVID Clinical Update" podcasts each weekend with Daniel Griffin are unbelievably informative and I look forward to each week's news. Can't recommend highly enough to this crowd. Note: some of the TWIV 'shows' midweek run super long & get waaaay down into the weeds of virology and immunology and would appeal to only those so inclined.
Have enjoyed reading commentary here on SAV since January that is 180° opposite the drivel in Fox News Comments sections (i.e. educated, thoughtful, often humorous, and written in English rather than Facebookese--complete with proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation). Thoroughly enjoy the disdain everyone in this community shares for the numbskulls that, unfortunately, seem to be nearly everywhere around us.
Kiki is my family nickname. Not a very exciting backstory, so I'll leave you with this:
Hello Fishguy and fellow SAV friends.
My name is pretty self explanatory. I joined in January. I'd just received my booster Dec.28th so I felt vaxxed2themax.
I live in Phoenix so I've been busy trying to get medical appointments out of the way before the searing heat sets in. I'm disabled with a rare spinal cord disorder called Syringomyelia and live in chronic pain and the limitations that creates.
I have alot of free time, but lately I've been watching several video games I love on Twitch and catching up on streaming content I've wanted to watch. My favorite games are Dead by Daylight and Bloodhunt (a vampie BR) that was just released, so I've been watching that alot. I just finished season 1 of The Man in the High Castle on prime. It's pretty good and very interesting.
I'm 61 female, single and happy in my own skin. The lack of fresh meat has me checking the site once a day, instead of 3 or 4 times and frankly the AV have a very rinse and repeat aspect to their stories. Sometimes it just feels depressing to see the same stupidity repeated over and over.
Writing this has reminded me that I'm due for my second booster so I'll be booking that for after the 15th when I'm done with my current busier schedule. I appreciate this site and feel a real sense of camaraderie. Thank you to Vaxman and to all who participate. I'd be lonelier and less fulfilled without SAV and the people here that I share my rants, feelings and frustrations with the AV community and the right wing nutjobs in general. Thanks for helping me stay reasonably sane.💖
Ron Johnson is one of my state senators. He's been using anti-vax sentiment and misinformation to further his political ambitions. My profile picture is "Blacky The Crow", a character from a book series I loved as a kid. Here's an excerpt that describes Blacky's personality.
I am Nevermore, named after one of my favorite bands. Owner of a dead heart in a dead world.
My name is self-explanatory. I feel daily dismay over AV insanity. I will never understand it! And my family gets tired of hearing me go on about it, so thank goodness there is this group to vent and laugh with. I‘m also in a FB group, Christians Against COVID Denialism. They’re more polite, but venting is the function of that group too.
I used to be quite devout but over time have let go of it. I feel less & less need for religious expression, especially with the current insanity going on. 🙀
The pandemic caused me to lose my job and retire. Frankly, retirement has been great - I was very tired of that job. My kids moved out last fall, so it’s just me and 🐈 (I’m a widow). But I worry constantly about the state of my country (USA). I’m grateful to the other members here. I hope to do some traveling soon, so got 2nd booster last week.
