I first went online in late 1995/early 1996 and I recall how hard it was to find anything relating to rugby league. Eventually I found the newsgroups after rec.sport.rugby had already split in two. I never posted, but I recall guys like Mugwump, Sadfish and Jackal and some guy who posted a lot on the United Stated scene. Eventually rleague.com came online and I posted there until it was infested by the likes of League Freak and his imitators. I do remember the Virtual Terrace, but I never posted there, mainly because I remember it being much less of a forum and more like a difficult to navigate list. Eventually I was posting mostly on rleague.com and eventually totalrl.com and then leagueunlimited, before finally settling with totalrl.com, because I was sick of having to wade through endless childish comments on the Aussie forums. I occasionally look in on them, and many years on the Aussie forums are still filled with the same uncontrollably repetitive, uninformed and petty people.

Ah, but who was that masked man?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

I remember the good old days when everyone had at least three log-on IDs and probably a couple of back-up ones for when they got banned....in fact I suspect of the 100+ registered users there were in fact only about 5 of us.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I've been on here as long as I remember being on the internet. Only one username but tended to post on the Dewsbury forum before discovering the mindless tripe I get sucked into on here.

 

Talking of which, I think the thread could do with a list recognising the posters who drew us in but have sadly disappeared/ reinvented themselves.

 

For me CasVegas, Dally Messenger and Wendle were instrumental in my addiction who are no longer posting.

1 user name since 99/00 so either 13 or 14 years  met Zoe, Paley, and Ed I amongst others prior to the GF in either 99 or 2000.

 

Feck ! I'm sure that was only last year :wild:


And so the future begins.....
