The People Pages were actually created by SDMB member Shayna, not WallyM7. And, yes, Opal’s page did have that kind of functionality once upon a time.
And to tie some of this confusion together. . . Wally’s ‘death’ was announce by Arnold Winkelreid (who created the nouilles page listed above), after receiving a call or email from Shayna, who had received an email from Wally’s ‘daughter’ *Amy about his ‘industrial accident.’
The People Pages suffered a meltdown, so the rumors/accusations went by: Apparently, at least one other person had the password for the People Pages. And one SDMB member, with mayhem in mind, wheedled the password out of another tech-savvy member who had it. The particular tech-savvy member had a penchant for alcohol, and so the story went it was while this member was a little sauced that the password got away. The rumor/accusation was that now armed with the password, sabotage ensued, and the People Pages got corrupted.
*A lot of us suspect that Amy was really Wally, but we’ll never know.
