Although they often pretend to be a legitimate message forum for serious science fiction discussion, their real agenda is to lure unsuspecting people from other forums to Moist Board so that they can change their posts and assign insulting avatars and nasty ranks to the newbie.
The ‘Moisties’, or members of the Moist Board, are a lively, freewheeling, eclectic group, originally brought together by a mysterious figure using the nom de web ‘Stallion Cornell’. The origins of many of the Moisties are shrouded in myth, however, it is an established fact that even discussing a possible connection between a Moistie and the Illuminati is a bannable offense on their bulletin board.
While widely highly regarded and respected among the other members of the Internet’s sci-fi community, the Moisties are not without their eccentricities, that include: a pathological revulsion of the word ‘cockatiel’, near reverence for David Hasselhoff, and the arcane ability to hack cell phones.
The Moist Board members tend to follow their leader "Stallion Cornell" around the web, looking for new websites to troll. They are well known for creating hundreds of alternate nicknames and handles and for holding spirited debates with themselves via the use of their various clones.
The Moist Board is obsessed with the 1978 tv series Battlestar Galactica and endlessly harass fans of the new, more successful show.
The Moist board is also well known for altering the posts of members who disagree with their points of view. The Moist Board has set the bar for mod-panel abuse which other forums find difficult to duplicate.
