    I was kinda shocked to go the page and see this...its been down for awhile.


    Well it's bandwith is used up, but it said "In Loving Memory, Whitney Elizabeth Long, 5/14/86-8/23/02," not sure about the dates, but it was something along that line.

    I should just shut up, but that sounds like exactly the kind of thing Bisk would do; something to get attention and keep people talking about her. I never got her sense of humor, and was mystified by all these great bassplayers lining up to pay homage to her. My take is that if a young guy would say the things Bisk was known for, he would have been flamed out of existence.
    I'm not judging her as a person; I don't know her. I just always thought she sounded like a young person trying to get as much attention as possible, and tons of people gave it to her. I just didn't get the joke....
  13. remember her? I still go the message board shes a moderater of!


    By the way, its a NOFX (you know, the band)board, and I post under the name JaundicedEye

    This brings up memories of the 'good old days'. I still miss Biski. She is one of my all time favorite posters.

    Not saying she has passed on to her greater reward or not, but if the message should just happen to be bogus, it is similar in nature to tricks I have seen youngsters pull at other message boards I have belonged to. It seems like about once a year someone posts a bogus, but myserious message about their own demise.

    One web site was caused so much consternation by a favorite poster who played that trick, that they booted him from the message board for a year for perpetrating such a fraud to garner sympathy or whatever reason.

    However if Bisky has passed on, it is certainly a tragic event, especially for someone so young. my condolences go out to her family and friends.

    She was sort of "infamous" for being involved in (sparking?) a few big rows - which on occasion involved other boards.

    So there was a big bust-up with the Fender thing where they ridiculed us for having a "know-nothing" teenage girl as a moderator, who was dissing them etc etc.

    It was all a bit tiresome - but she became a bit of a "heroine" to younger members and was treated like a rebellious younger family member (niece?) by the older members - there you go! ;)
