This blog is a satire of the now-defunct ICQ chat service, which is thankfully dead because I destroyed it.

RIP ICQ

ICQ has died.

I strongly suggest everyone "thank" those who made its death possible; namely TNTease (on icq-chat.com).

For six glorious months we enjoyed chatting without OPs around to mess up our fun. Now the time for action is at hand.

I will occasionally check to see if the network is back online in the coming months; it's possible. Maybe this is related to a major overhaul.

  1. i came across the forum on libras page a couple of weeks ago, what I found was an interesting thread. there was a bit of trouble in libra "paradise".
    I wanted to post a link to it in a comment here but alas, suddenly the whole libra website was gone.
    this was a few weeks ago, when every attempt to get to her site ended in a 503 error.
    when the site was back up, the thread was gone. coincidence?
    well libra and sicilia, after stepping down as ops, are back in the op team so the issues have been resolved, I guessed, but someone felt the need to repost or retrieve the dramatic forum thread for everyone to read. a very interesting read.. as long as they dont take it down again.

  2. librairc.net is a fraud so complete and venal it demands to be destroyed beyond the power of memory to recall it's existence

  12. Hey All you icq chat alcoholics, it's me, bikertom, the read deal. Since ICQ is gone I don't know what to do with myself, should I go to libra's irc site? Alpha-chat? I heard TNT has a site too. If any of you are wondering what I've been up to lately, its motorcycles, I bought another one and fixing it up. Contrary to public rumours, I am not dead, not yet anyways
