Marilyn Manson began posting on his official message board in 1998 and this continued through to 2002 when the bbs was shut down and replaced with The Oracle.

I apologize to New York because the police shut down our record signing, hopefully we can make up for it later. I hope the uncensored "The Dope Show" footage will satisfy your needs. I'm going to give you some sneak previews of important things next week that I think you'll appreciate. I truly love and appreciate you and your support, and FUCK all the senseless assholes who post here trying to annoy me. It doesn't work.

PLEASE EXCUSE MY ABSENCE
as I am in London at the moment dispersing information to Europe regarding our movement.
I wanted to give you time to digest Mechanical Animals, and I hope you are enjoying it.
I am watching and in a week you will see me here more regularly when I return to the States.

You know there was once a time i was them, but know i am me, and after finding this out i finally came upon the conclusion this is how it was meant to be. i come here today not to contact Brian (marilyn as you know) but to reach you his fans, but always remember brian and i will meet once again, on his way down and my way up....... just wait you shall see...

I'm back and I will be here for you. Thanks from the 5 of us, for your words. In response to "scott". you were always scott and that's what you couldn't see. we all live in our minds. you are dragged down by your lack of imagination. we will never meet again. you will never meet these wonderful people again. I love therefore I am.

Some of you have looked deeper. keep looking there is much more. so many things, inconsequential things are distracting us from the sad truth.
this is the exit, this is the exit. sometimes you are Coma White.
some people, people who haven't experienced and would not know...sit and try to judge someone's work in a sentence. it doesn't make you stronger. you can't feel someone else's pain. who is better,what does this song rip off? I am a pop artist, I know how to make my statements in musical references, in images. but I am a dead star. I am pointing to you...don't miss what I am telling you. the numbness has worn off. humanity is the worse thing to feel.
I've always loved you...

tonight I will post all the information regarding zim zum's termination. we can then clarify that everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. look for these legal documents to please end this nonsense, so we can get on with moreimportant issues.
I'd like to know what songs from mechanical animals you would like to hear most on this tour?
And I have no current plans for children or marriage.
god is now here
god is nowhere

first of all no other members of the band are currently on the bbs or chat. ignore these imposters (DRUGS,etc.) I do NOT post in any other form, even if I am away from my computer.
Despite the fact that I feel zim zum has lied about his termination, this isn't the place to spread rumours about him, or prosecute him for things you think he has done.
it doesn't surprise me though, that if you surround yourself in lies, eventually you will drown in them.
as for scott and your confusion, it seems people would just want to go on with their lives and realize no matter how hard they try to hang on they are not a part of me. I don't hate him. I just don't care. everyone has broken relationships, ex-girlfriends,etc. This is no different. talk about it somewhere else. it's wasting space.
finally, about ex-bandmates--I wish brad stewart the best with his band, the dollygaggers. despite our problems, he is still a brother to me.
Anton LaVey's final book "SATAN SPEAKS" will be released this month. I wrote the forward, and I'm sure you will enjoy this one.
we are on the dawn of a powerful new era.
this is our omega.
be with me,

LET ME SAVE ALL THE LOSERS THE TIME AND TROUBLE. I'M A SELLOUT. I'M NOT AS COOL AS I WAS ON THE FIRST ALBUM AND MY IMAGE SUCKS. AND THIS WEBSITE IS LAME.
IF I LISTENED TO PEOPLE LIKE THAT I WOULDN'T BE WHERE I AM.
YOU DON'T HAVE A FUCKING CLUE WHO I AM. AND UNTIL YOU CAN STAND WHERE I DO, SIT DOWN
I'M GLAD THAT YOU HATE ME ENOUGH TO SPEND YOUR TIME HERE. I STILL WIN THEN, DON'T I?
