Longmonster is not the Baron people, despite everyone welcoming him back as if he is.

Baron or not, he's gotten things rolling. Longmonster was pretty good as well and has been gone. One way or the other, welcome back.

I'm having a little trouble recalling Longmonster.
Was he the guy who had a plan to kiss a random woman on the top of each 14er?

I don't remember him at all Maybe he is that guy form last month who was going to climb the Maroon Bell, he climbed in Scotland and had an accent. No, that's silly.

But the Baron always had excellent and erudite comments.

I thought longmonster was the d***head whose TR someone found on summitpost, where he dragged his tired and out-of-shape kid up Quandary, belittling him the whole time, and then bragged about it.
Or maybe I'm thinking of someone else...

That was the milehighmofo (nee milehighmadman). His 36 hour rise and fall on this site was, in my opinion, pure rock n' roll...

Ah, yes, that was him. Those were good times.
My apologies to longmonster/strongmelon for the confusion.

There are differing opinions on the original Longmonster. As is often the case, Lordhelmut's is the most entertaining:

I just banned two users. If they have a problem, tough s**t - they can troll elsewhere.
Hoooray for Bill!!!!!

did one of them happen to be that piece of s**t Longmonster? Be careful Bill, who knows what can happen when a 30 year old living in his parents termite infested basement gets his forum rights revoked

There was also a "c00txlarrr" or something similar if I remember correctly. It'd be a nice addition to the site if there was a "black book" section where you could see who was banned and, more importantly, why.

Perhaps because the Baron has better/more productive things to do with his time? :-k

Perhaps.... seems whoever it is is a big fan of 14ers.com and you specifically.
