this place has been around for a while. there are threads with hundreds or thousands of pages that i've never read. what brutal, traumatic message board wars did latecomers miss out on? what were the high and low points? what’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened on here?There are battles which have already been fought and won. There is a conversation with a history, a series of moves, we have got to a particular point collectively. We have a past. Certain people have been laughed out of town, certain ideas have been laughed out of town.
