I believe I've located the thread in question.

How did they match him up? Is it having forum user names in facebook or myspace profiles?

He's got the same username here and there. And I would assume he probably had his email address public over there and then you can just search facebook for who has that email address. That's how most people get outed at least.

And just an aside, has the other site been down for a few minutes for anyone else?

Working for me.

The thread is named:
An Outing To One-Up Zissou

If you were looking for it uga. The best part of it is that it wasn't singular at all (or double, just here and FH) he found like twenty different websites plus posted his phone number.

Yeah, it just seems a little sad to me since nothing I read by the guy outed seemed that bad. Sure, posting what you've recently learned about greek life on one site on another site like you're an expert probably isn't advisable, but what I read didn't reflect THAT poorly on him really, except the volume of registrations maybe.

On a different note, I wonder how many people on Greek Chat are lurking on FH or Old Row? How creepy is that for you guys?

What maybe a better question to ask is how many people on FH/OR "lurk" in GC.

I don't know. Greek Chat seems very open to all ages and walks of life. As long as you aren't especially rude or clueless and don't misrepresent yourself, you are probably going to be welcomed or at least tolerated here.

The other forums seem much more geared towards a certain kind of current college guy or recent alum.

"Fratty" sites (both copycats of fratty.net before it went offline)

It's a bunch of SEC, FSU and Texas guys mainly from the real southern houses.

Yeah, I was about to say, I didn't think FSU had many great posters on there...

That guy with the LeSabre was pretty cool and tough though.

Funny thing is, I know a lot of people from that high school. I had one friend in common with him on facebook as old as I am.
He went to one of our rival high schools, actually. I think I even recognize his name, but I'm several years older... maybe he had a brother or something. Sucks to be him.
