A pup I am not - been here 5 years and anymore am now considered one of "the old guard" - altho' I consider myself part of the second waves of "Regs" - because I came in when R!mZ, MoToR, Boobie, Big Hairy, Daniel, & Co were "King" - right now, along with MoToR, I am probably the longest-board-lived *regular* poster out here as of now.
I DO remember you & Dirty stopping in - and a California blonde avatar who set all all the boys on fire - but it never lasted, and it was usually on the attack. And, of course, there was the late, great Slitherin Assassin - never figured out if he was part of your crew or not, or just a truly clever independent troll - they don't make 'em like THAT anymore....
Well, we've lost a lot of peeps who made the the board what it was - for better or worse - and this new format is looking to kill it off altogether.....
yeah, we were pretty much disbanded 5 years ago. I don't know who Slitherin is/was, but that name wasn't part of our group and i only visited once or twice a year for a while. I think this message board format was in some way a response to the way we used to take over and destroy the message boards of the past, and that gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. I don't like it though, it's way too complicated to have anything approaching a coherent conversation.

You got that right about the format - we couldn't have a good ol' board war if we tried, they stop putting "reply buttons" on posts once a thread branches off into a conversation-type form - and if you haven't found out about the random censorship, well, you are in for a treat there!... It takes dedication to even try to figure this thing out.
Sadly, it wasn't the good old madness that took the board down - last year it started getting spammed from overseas by a company with over 100 spam posts a day for months, sometimes up to 300 - and since Yahoo! couldn't figure out how to stop the spammers for more than 5 minutes at a time, they went to this format.
Sucks that it wasn't at least US who took us down, LOL....tho' heaven knows, we tried. MoToR and I got into a board war once that really did almost made it go up in flames - people were begging us to stop, but we just couldn't, ROFL....
Slitherin was the Ultimate Troll - I think he was a meth'd-out genius - dang, he gave us REAL grief - but once in awhile he would just write the funniest dang stuff you've ever seen out here - "The Darrell Waltrip Rosetta Stone" comes to mind - normally you'd want a troll like that dead, but he was so one-of-a-kind and really creative, we mourned when he died at age 23 from surgical complications.
I wish they'd change the format back, so we could all just go for the gold and for blood again....
