This reminds me of my attitude over my last 14 years here:
Was it Scrivener? LOLStill my go to after all these years. Now I feel old.
I remember my first post on here and got thrashed by someone... You needed some thick skin then. lol
100%, I have seen lots of good forums ruined by terrible moderators. They always claim the fun members are hard to moderate, but those fun members are what people come back for, entertainment. If you ban all the fun people, guess what you are left with: lurkers who don't post. Happy bday NES!IMO the reason this board has survived and prospered(in the past maybe decade) is due to the moderation of DrGrant.
Obviously not taking away from the behind the scenes shit that Derek does, but the day to day ops and moderating without silencing has kept people around..Moderators can, and do, drive people away from message boards.
So Mike, this buds for you
I probably did invite you over to here. No, MAF List was strictly a list-server on World.std.com run by Dick Lunn.May of 2005 here. #206 I think it was Len who sent me the invite.
Before that, anyone remember....

I don't know why, but the hat still sits on the shelf over the gun safe.
Honestly, I always thought NES started before 2005. I just recall using the internet before the 1998 Chapter 180. Must have been on the Mass Firearms mailing list. Could have sworn it was on some kind of forum software, but can't recall what.
