Good grief, I've been on this forum over a third of my life!

The posters who were 12 and 13 back then are pushing 30 now...

I was 16 when I signed up here, and am 32 now. So I've been here half of my life!

I wasn't as young as say Nurgle, Sorceress, Talia Karn, or Riffstrenchcoat but I was on the youngish side even if I am not so young now...

Oh boy. I remember going to a play in which Duke Leto participated in a minor capacity. Don't recall whether he had lines or was a crowd member.

It was during some arguments with the kid who was an objectivist Star Trek fan. Who was that, again?

Yup, that's definitely it. I see that he's still listed as a member but the board has been wiped since he posted last. All gone.

Man, I had some epic debates with Raahul. I think I have them saved somewhere...

It's so sad that so much dreck on the internet is saved forever, but the pure magic that was the Golden Age of the Sluggy Forums is gone forever. Well, to quote Robert Frost:

Quote:
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her early leaf's a flower
but only so an hour
Then leaf subsides to leaf
So Eden sank to grief
So dawn goes down to day

Nothing gold can stay

I have one of our debates saved, but that's it. I don't usually save forum posts for later. Wish I had.

I only ever saved one forum thread, and I just recently posted the entire thing in quote form after an abortive attempt to have people recreate it [/shameless plug]

At least you guys were present for the Golden Age!

=P
