    Pictures, this thread is useless without: Used when a thread refers to a woman, hot or not, but does so without posting masturbatory material for the SportsJournalists.com members who aren't getting laid. (Note: Often said in jest.)

    Old, Old Board--The Sportspages Forum, small and dimly-lit, until Wally Matthews posted his famous rant there....and suddenly everyone in the business was on the board....many posting under their own names. There was no registration, anyone could post under any name, and there was little to no moderating.

    The old board was shut down for less than, or perhaps more than, this.

    Old Board--After Rich Johnson sent his Sportspages Forum to internet heaven/hell, depending on who you were, the Great Webby resurrected it as SportsJournalists.com.....still without moderation or registration.  Yeehah!

    So that didn't work either.

    The board went dark again for several months, over the summer of 2002. But again, this was before PMs and registration, so no one knew anyone....impossible to stay in touch or reconnect elsewhere.

    Then...genesis. In the beginning, there was an email, and a new site, with Private Messaging, and actual screen names, and a Moddy....and it was good.

    I kinda miss the old, old board.

    This place is like high tea at the Empress Hotel in comparison.

    It was the Wild West.

    Well, if there ever is another Wikipedia entry, I got dibs on writing it, with full approval from the membership.

    Jesus Wept - Fenian's version of Nolo Contendre.
  9. Actually, it's my version of "O, Christ will they ever get Boom's dosage right?"
    Anyway, here's another:

    Well-played, sir/madam:
    A term of praise for a particularly deft remark, particularly if it involves an arcane reference to something only all of we pathetic souls remember.

    And with that, the political arguments taint another thread. And as I'm writing this, Fenian Streisand proves my point! Nice going, FS!
