Act Classy Staff
Computer Station #23 (Editor-in-Chief, Lead Investor)
, a long-forgotten relic of the early age of computer technology, is located in the basement of Nation’s First Bank in Jersey City, NJ. Upon mysteriously being reactivated, CS23 wired money to a random group of bloggers with the instructions to use the funds to launch ActClassy.com.The bank’s disgruntled janitor was electrocuted during a plumbing accident in the room directly adjacent to CS23′s storage space, and the Act Classy staff have developed the theory that his soul now inhabits the machine. Since the money keeps coming, though, they don’t ask too many questions. CS23 enjoys Pong and having its holes blown into.

Molly has more than once intervened in strangers’ drunken arguments about whether or not Richard Dawson is dead. She sometimes likes to act classy, but rarely when there are Cheetos or Dots involved.
Last in the line of a once Noble House, Fred Betzner

at Beeps, Balls & Bings in Camp Hill, PA blindfolded for 12 consecutive matches in 1992. His fighter of choice was E.
