It did here on one of the obscure cable channels, which is the reason why I didn't catch it. We had it, but it usually only aired crap, so I rarely watched that channel.

Frankly, I don't think you missed much. I never saw what the big deal was. "Something about nothing" is still nothing.

He was the all-time most prolific until he was finally banned, then I remember Huntingdon holding the honor for a while. The Starfish was the board's top poster for a good span of time around the middle of the last decade.
From Enterpriser to eddie. TBBS can't claim much, but it can say it's actually made some worthwhile progress.
Yeah, Hunt was very active and then he got a high profile job and got too much to do to hang around here. Enterpriser did walk that tightrope for a looong time. I remember being stunned that he was banned in the end.

Shameless was everywhere at one point, spamming up the Flaptains and Rear like there was no tomorrow. I know, because we did it together. It was Liz, Angry Angel, Kevin Thomas Riley, Hunt, Orac Zen, Spider, DAK, KitKat, and now I'm sure I've forgotten people. Ghost. We were a bunch who completely rioted in Flaptains one Saturday evening/night in 2004. I think I posted more than 200 posts that evening and the mods got a bit of a shock when logging in. Completely insane. Personally I blame Monty Python. It was all their fault.
Those were some good times.

We really should start another lounge war. Those are always fun.

Re: Any old timers still around?

true but to that end we'd have to reactivate the lounges which atm are rather dead.
How about Olympic Lounge games? All lounges competing against each other would increase traffic, be fun and keep Orac awake, heehee. That'll teach him to complain about the silence *snicker*

Re: Any old timers still around?

A simple solution would to just have one lounge and move all the loungeish stuff from Misc to it.

Call the new place "The Sombrero." Then, when the eventual civil war begins, split the factions into the Large Sombreros and the Tiny Sombreros.

We should bring back the EFCL and make it a democracy and put a bunch of people who don't really like each other in charge of it. Just for a laugh, you know.

Hmmm ... that could be interesting. Still won't make post more right at the moment. *Disappears before anyone notices*

This forum needs a 'like' button so I can express my 'like' of posts like the one above without having to post about it like I am now.
