That was mean spirited dad. Even if it was directed at an imposter. BlueNWhite? What kind of bullshit is that. Haha.

Glad to be back online. Honestly, after the temperature of some of the debates perhaps a fresh start was necessary.

Nice?

Who needs nice?

This board is running out of new lives. What has it been, five reincarnations?

Dad - the Mets are building for 18. Clearly the front-runners for the World Series a mere 14 months from now.

Nat - New format won't allow for my trademarked &, so it is indeed the end of an era. Or is it "error".

Chas - easily 5. I think you were around when it was Penn State World and the University threatened Mark if he didn't change the name. That was a long time ago now. Easily over 10 years.

I am sure nothing bad can happen if I hit a link in one of those Russian threads. Oh, other than have Homeland Security, the Treasury Department, FBI, State Police, and Children and Youth Services come knocking on my door.

I think the most likely thing that happens is your PC gets infected with some nasty virus. I no long am able to zap that stuff so I can't help. If Mark gives me moderator rights again, I'll take care of it.

Or, if someone else wants to job of dealing with the spammers, that's fine too. I am more than happy to relinquish the responsibility to someone else.

The site started in 1997 as Penn State World, the name changed in 2000. Happy 20 years...I guess it was time for an anniversary reboot.

I just realized I showed up in 1999. 18 years wasting time on this board.

I'm so proud. :D

Holy Cow.

Perhaps the people who developed the BB software should have put in a Cyrillic alphabet filter.

But, comrade Dad, I thought you could speak russky.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

Me too. I showed up in 2004 and have been pretending to know much more than I do ever since.
