i just found this out from another netphorian who migrated to another board with me randomly in a PM they sent last week
i had basically quit message boards and then logged into that account for the first time in a month (i haven't even read this place in years i think - "Welcome, Graveflower. You last visited: 09-20-2019) and that was like the first thing i saw
(no after basically 22 years of boarding i am not going to stop making things about myself and in a way that's irrelevant sorry)
obviously like a few people i used to troll eulogy a lot but we eventually became really friendly both on here and FB when FB was a thing people under 70 used after I made an effort to be a better person (didn't take) but he was an actual good person and I constantly feel like shit for how I used to be horrible to everyone on here because I thought they were "corny" and it's why i mostly stay away but i heard (read) about this and like felt compelled to say something

edit: look i know i lampshaded how everything is about me but jesus christ it sucks seeing it at the top of a page
i hope everyone uses a different number of posts per page than me

edit 2: i should have mentioned that after we became friends it was because he was a really nice and forgiving person and this sucks for everyone not just me i swear i don't only think about me personally but it's hard to type out thoughts that indicate otherwise

So so sorry to hear this. Thank you for your candor. I am speechless. Can’t think of anything to say that doesn’t feel like an empty gesture. I can’t imagine what you must be going through. So so sorry.

Bro. Remember when Eugoogoly wasn't gay? I'll always remember his story. It is kinda hard typing this. He was a good dude..

It's okay, Graveflower. Everyone grieves in their own way.

we've mostly been in a state of vigil here.

Just got a text from Graveflower. I am shocked and saddened to hear about Chris's untimely death.
Eulogy was great! He used to get so mad and annoyed with me when I'd post about pop on the music board then in recent years he got into it and was like "yeah you were right." I love that kind of growth.

Tom, I can't imagine what it's like to mourn the love of your life at such a young age. He didn't deserve this and neither did you and your families. My sincere condolences and virtual hugs.

i found this quote in a .txt file:

"But Eulogy and scotty's whole thing is that ideas are not justifiable if they come from religion, regardless if they are good or bad ideas, and regardless if they helped develop civilization and establish order and morality. However that is not to say all religions are good religions."

I don’t know that anyone handles death -well-…

but I am happy to hear that you had positive interactions with him.

y’all have been very kind and I appreciate that.

First, let me say that I don't know what made me check to see if forums.netphoria.org still existed, but I did, and seeing this place has never changed is strangely comforting.

I'm sad to hear of his passing, even tho I'm pretty sure we argued endlessly and he hated my guts here. I can't say I blame him, I bet if I look back at old posts I'm pretty sure I'll find that I was quite obnoxious in my efforts to bring hilarity.

I wish we did get along, because I fucking love Failure and it's quite sad that we never connected on how awesome they are, maybe we could have found common ground there. I'd like to think I've grown a lot over the years, enough so to say that I would have been glad to say hello to him after all this time and let bygones be bygones.

My sincere condolences Caine.

My whole heart goes out to you, Caine. Will be thinking of you, especially tomorrow if the memorial indeed ended up being held then. The love you share with someone is there always, outside of time.

I heard about this shortly after it happened, and have tried to write a response a half a dozen times with no success. I am not going to pretend I knew him in any sense other than what he posted on here, but I will say that I was shocked to hear about it. It was awesome seeing him grow up and change with his posts, as it has been with a lot of you. It was nice finding common ground, weird mutual likes, and even arguing. Being a weird, introverted social idiot, I honestly do not think I'd turn down having a beer or otherwise having a chat with any one of you. It's very weird coming back here and it looks like nothing has changed but everything else always keeps moving on. My condolences to Caine and the rest of their family.

I can't pretend I knew him on more than a superficial level, but I will miss talking about Jimmy Eat World with him.

My condolences to you Tom. Sorry for being so late. I never thought I'd be back here. I also never thought the news of someone's death I never met would be so shocking or such a reminder of how sweet and short life can be. I only knew him a brief time in my life, but he was noticeable and impactful. Once I heard of Chris’s passing I felt compelled to post though. He was memorable to me as a genuine kind person. Its so odd that particular time in our lives before social media posting on messagbboards….refreshing the pages over and over getting in flamewars. Like a time capsule. Eulogy always offered a well defined point and honest opinions. I can say I learned a lot from his perspective and appreciated his posts.
Eulogy was also my favorite tool song, so I'd notice his name popping up whenever he posted. I remember he went to Notre Dame. I remember he was so young. I remember he always got to the point. I too loved the flame wars, but honestly he had so much inquisitive kindness . He always sought to be morally correct, and at least righteous in a message board filled with tubgirl pics hidden under a link. He never struck me as malicious even though that ran rampant on the boards. He stood up for what he believed in and was a quality poster. He was always someone I paid attention to and wondered how his life was going. I remembered the eulogay era very little but am glad to know he came out and found love. He was kind to me when a lot of people weren’t and that’s what i’ll cherish about his memory.

All I can say is rest in peace, and may his memory live on in the best of lights here where we all cut our teeth in the wild west before moderators, getting therapy, or any kind of actual self care. Our comic relief. Our stomping grounds. The places memes were made. He was here in the beginning. His memory will live on in us for sure. I'm sorry I was so late to the news, but his time here was appreciated, and he left an endearing impression on so many of us. I hope you find healing.
