VietnamDodger (commonly referred to by the initialism VND) is one of the most well-known and noteworthy figures in the MSTI community. 

She was a catalyst for generating discussion for Mike Petriello's game threads during 2012, and continued to be one of the most prolific commentors in 2013.  Only Disgruntled Goat has posted more comments than her, and she has liked more comments than any other member.

Life on MSTIEdit

VND one of the few prominent females in the MSTI comments section. 

She has been quoted saying "I don't play by the rules." In the late evenings, she often pushes the limits of what the moderators will allow, posting moderately lewd images and entertaining discussions about sexual topics.


She enjoys drama.  Her strong, passionate personality has led into occasional feuds with other MSTI members over hot button topics such as education and politics. 

Despite a tendency to tease and poke fun at her wild behavior, the members of the MSTI community respect VND as a person for her contributions to society with her career path.

VND also enjoys making up rules, such as the 20 minute rule, which are consistently ignored and frequently mocked by calling the "rule" a "*suggestion."
