Columbus, OH - Crew fan Karl Thorton is reportedly bothered by thousands of posts that he made between 1999 and 2002 under his own name on the sometime vitriolic soccer forum Big Soccer as he, now, attempts to move on in his career.
"I didn't think, at the time, that nearly 20 years later they would become easily searchable and available for consumption," stated Thorton to The Nutmeg News. "I'm definitely not going to be able to run for office, but I'd like to just get a job of as an IT Professional without my future boss being able to view my incendiary posts about Columbus soccer and the Chicago Fire."
Thorton created the "KTHORTON" account on Big Soccer during his late teens as he began to follow the Columbus Crew after graduating from Beechcroft High School and enrolling in Columbus State Community College.
"I'm seriously regretting my post titles like, 'CHICAGO IS A SHITHOLE, BURN IT TO THE GROUND,' and, 'WEED, WHO LOVES IT,' now. As well, I do regret impugning the dignity of Leeds United fans back in 2000 on that megathread. Sorry, everyone."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Thorton quickly scans over his old posts to determine that his political career is over before it even began.
