Edna ruined, purr ruined, dox ruined... Life is good :awesome:


Purr is still screaming at the moon as a guest, it's all he has left.

It was bad enough to be stared at and pointed at, everywhere they went.
But to be in such chronic pain too. Yet they remained dignified and just shrugged and got on with life as best as they could.
I salute them. Bless 'em!
I agree.

But some 7ft plus people are perfectly fine health wise, The Big Show from WWE for example, I'm not sure many people point and laugh at him. :mrgreen:


Being of large stature will be different than having gigantism, which is what Sandy Allen had. She would have kept growing had it not been for surgery to remove a tumour on her pituitary gland. Many basketball players are over 7’ tall and seem to lead normal lives, other than it probably being difficult to buy clothing and footwear.


Some tall people have a condition called Marfan Syndrome. There's not much awareness of it, but it can cause other problems as well. It's a genetic, inherited, condition which affects connective tissue, and can affect the heart, eyes, and joints.
I'll look it up.

The tallest person in history Robert Waldow had this.. Hyperplasia of the pituitary gland.. if anyone else fancies a read.

Is there anyone well-known that has it? I’ve not heard of it before.


Isaiah Austin, who is a basketball player. Your mention of basketball made me think of it.

Vincent Schiavelli, who was in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Bin Laden allegedly had it, and also a bunch of historical figures.

I have heard of Vincent Schiavelli. I remember him in Ghost but didn’t realise he was overly tall.

Is there any treatment for the condition?

There's no cure, they just try to manage all the different symptoms. It affects many parts of the body.

Nothing of value was lost with the departure of any of them. I really regret some of the lengths that I went to rather than back down to those twats but they ran so many people offline, they weren't doing it to me.

When Edna got doxed and her secret bits got leaked I got a referrer to a blog commenting on it, a single line that took no pleasure in the act but it conveyed quiet satisfaction at the news. Liz, Kaitlin, all of her original enemies turned out to be quite pleasant and not mental at all, FFS, she accused me of being a raving lunatic who should be sectioned and banged up because I used to have some nasty depression :dunno:

I think that the petrol station was the line in the sand, helped along with Purr being doxed on the review site amongst the child abuse images on there. If he has got cancer then I hope he survives it, he's just a twat on the internet after all's said and done.

Vincent Schiavelli was 6ft 4". Not massively tall these days but still pretty tall. Not all people with Marfan syndrome are tall, they're just more likely to be tall, and they tend to have long arms, fingers, and legs.
