It was 2000-2003 when www.fencingsucks.com was at the height of its “prominence” in the US fencing world.
A typical post would be, “X Fencer sucks! He’s ugly and has no fencing skills.” Yes, I was posted about a few times…always fun. The website was a chance for people t cowards to smear others from the shadows…and sadly there were a decent amount of people who liked to do that!
I’m not sure how many people actually visited the site, but it was a decent amount …even admitting you went to the website was something you didn’t do without worrying you would be judged…except you would usually discover that whoever you mentioned it too also had been to the website…and then you’d feel better.(but still dirty!)
