Shutter, I'm just sending your placard out today. I got a little jammed up this last week.
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Darren, to answer your question about Robert.....

Cooper Royalty is a false claim made up by Robert. it's anyone who doesn't agree with him about anything. you can't be negative against his suspect. he can't accept the fact of being banned for his behavior. he believes it's other reasons. if I make a post about Kenny it quickly becomes "slanted" even though facts are presented. it's perfectly okay for him to speak about other suspects in the same manor? he watches this forum like a hawk waiting for his name to be mentioned.

He spews negativity about Eric because of what happened with his little deal. I gave my opinion of not wanting to get involved and he goes ballistic. he's still trying to get us to work with him on something coming up next year that will change 20 more times in the future. then if you work with him he will try to trap you and try to divert you from working with anyone here. since you work with him I'm guessing he has tried something. that's what you won't see here by me or others here. you will not be forced or coerced into anything.

I was going to suggest we name this site “cooperroyalty.com”.  When they built a rodeo arena in California outside San Francisco, a critic said “who needs a palace for cows?”.  The owners decided to own the name rather than criticize it and its still called “the cow palace” today.

On the other hand, after the movie “Office Space” mocked TGIFridays for their pieces of flair, they stopped their flair.  I would have owned that too, putting up signs saying “now with 37 pieces of flair!”.

Cooperroyalty.com would have been great!

Who coined the term "The Cooper Vortex"? Was it Tom Kaye?

If it wasn't me, then I was an early user. Maybe it was a joint creation, too.

Back in 2011, Geoffrey Gray got a lot of traction in the media for his term: "Cooper Curse," and I was a little upset. I remember feeling the "curse" was over-stated, and was a little distorted - I didn't feel the investigatory dead-ends that were arising were that big a deal. At the DropZone I commented broadly that the curse was not that potent, not anywhere close to ongoing, daily CRAZINESS at the DZ, where Blevins, Jo Weber, Twisty Butt, Georger, Galen, Snowmman, and me (and others) were whipping each other into a frenzy.

In addition, people with seemingly sane minds were joining the chat rooms and become fanatics, usually in a good way. But their lives become devoted to researching the DB Cooper case - the confounding mysteries of Norjak were just sucking everyone in, with no one escaping.

So, I said: "Who cares about GG's 'Cooper Curse?' We've got something bigger right under our noses - the Cooper Vortex." It struck a chord and we've been using the term ubiquitously ever since. Just like the use of "DB" by the FBI within hours of the mix up with Clyde Jabin.

A fellow at the Mountain News who calls himself "Person33" says the following:

"377 coined the term cooper vortex at DZ. Tell Darren. 377 coined a number of terms including "venom magnet" referring to Blevins."

Sounds about right. Maybe 377 and I did it together, with 377 saying: what a vortex this is Cooper case - once somebody hears about they can never escape the pull. Maybe I put the "Cooper" and "Vortex" together? But Person 33 is correct. It all started at the DZ, circa 2011.
