Have you ever been on a message board/website that had a celebrity posting on it?

A couple examples pop into my mind in terms of my own experiences(though in some cases the definition of the term celebrity will be a little loose but having the thread title be "Have you ever posted on a message board that had a notable individual/celebrity/person posting openly or anonymously" would be a bit long).

-In the old days of AOL's wrestling message boards, Chris Jericho, Diamond Dallas Page and Kimberly Page all were openly posting on there.
-Bruce Timm would post on the Toonzone message boards every now and then.
-Peter Briggs was anonymously posting on the official Highlander forums when he was writing his rejected script for what would become Highlander: The Source.
-Bruce Willis was anonymously posting on the Aint it Cool forums before he revealed who he was.

I don't see this being so rare anymore in the age of social media with them all over Twitter and reddit, since the OP is broad with "website".

joltaddict was revealed to be Tila Tequila

Also, I'm kind of a big deal.

There's a message board called "Twitter" that I see a lot of celebrities at.

Did you get a chance to ask Woody Harrelson about Rampart?

I watch The John Campea show on YouTube and Erin Cummings (Sura from Spartacus) is a good friend of Campea and has appeared on his show. She reads the comments and has responded to people.

Boatdrinks (hope my memory isn't fuzzy on the member) on here was kinda a celebrity. I can't remember which TV show he was a writer for.

I used to post on The Saab Network. Kurt Vonnegut like Saabs, and he showed up one day to say hi. He never posted again.

Yep, and he got name drops of several DVD Talk folks into one episode. That was fun.

Many years ago on a wrestling board, John Tenta (the former Earthquake in WWF) was a member for a while before he sadly passed away.

I follow a few Bachelor related podcast groups on facebook and some former Bachelor contestants are in these groups and interact with the people in them.

I think this happened before I started checking out Otter, so it was one of those things I heard about. Cool thing for him to do.

"Celebrity" no longer has meaning. In the old days, long before I was born, there was no doubt who was a celebrity and who wasn't, and it took some innate talent and/or hard work to achieve celebrity status. Not that it made them any better than Joe or Jane Unknown, but there was a reason they had name recognition. Nowadays, any fuckstick with nothing of value to contribute to the arts or the greater knowledge of society can become a known entity simply by posting his or her drivel on social media shites.

I've seen a few skiing "celebrities" post on a skiing forum.

In the old days, we had "celebrities" like Pia Zadora. Her biggest talent was marrying a millionaire willing to fund her career.

Yes, that's 100% correct, so the issue is moot. Anybody can call themselves a "celebrity" today, and they do! That "status" has become so deflated that I'd actively avoid any so-called celebrities who were blatant enough to take the namesake. Twitter does seem to be the exception, but I'd never go there, this sacrosanct world of DVD Talk being the one and only forum that I frequent on the net today.

Becoming a "celebrity", one annoying youtube video at a time... Mondo Cane.... mondo cane.

When we had the adult forum, there were a couple female porn stars who would post. I didn’t know any of them but I guess they’re ere somewhat well known.

I remember when boatdrinks was around. I really tried to like Geostorm....

Jonah Ray, Frank Conniff and Hampton Yount also post semi regularly on some Mystery Science Theater Facebook groups I’m a member of.

Comic book message boards often have comic creators posting.

One day a friend of mine was posting about something on his own Facebook page and John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats commented, My friend used to DJ in a college town where John once lived, so it’s not that weird that they’re Facebook friends, but it made me geek out.

Yes, this one.

Actually, I hang out on a secret Facebook group with some other people who were famous illustrators in the 80's.
