2002 I think so 9 years, gulp!!

Originally as MongOfLeisure, but these "it's PC gone mad I tell yer" times forced a change of name. Bloody easily offended, precious people B)

I find the scraping of geese to be morally offensive and an insult to our feathered friends. You sir, are a Mong.

I think I first started posting on here in 2000/2001. I also used to post on summerconference.net (as did James V), and can recall many jousts with a pr&t called Wine Bar Guru.

I don't post on here as often as I used to, though I still log on every day. I can be a chippy and obtuse git when I want to be, but there are now too many idiots knocking about for my liking. Also, though I still love RL, due to geography, I've been away from it for three years now, so I can't contribute as a want.

Just replying to Johnoco's post, it occured to me I first did this on John Drake's original Virtual Terrace in 1999.

Along with Paley, LobbyGobbler and John Drake, this means we have been on here a stupid amount of time and for a decent chunk of our lives. I have lived in four countries in that time with countless homes and jobs.

Anyone else coming to the frightening revelation that John's boards are one of th emost constant things in their lives?

You recently posted a link to a web archive copy of the old forum. I wasn't surpised to see I'd posted on it but I was taken aback when I saw it was from April 2001.

Remember Flying Kelvin, he was a laugh.

Was he the crazed vegan that used to bang on about his leather free shoes.....or was that a figment of my drunken imagination??? :unsure:

It's like Royston Vasey, this place.

I remember that period, I was living here and there and only used to view this place in the library (true). It wasn't until late 2001 that I became settled again and had a house and stuff again.

I think you mean 2001. A very interesting read. Some names that are still about, and some people much more polite then than they are now!

It must have been a good place to hang out back then.

It's whinging fans like you who have kept this game down for all these decades, you and your like are what this game doesn't need. Why don't you trott off with your Wippet and watch some crown green bowls!

It all started going downhill about 2003, when I joined, ( IIRC)

Interestingly enough there was a user called Wendall, and he/she was not quite so much of a bell end as the present one.

To be fair, I rather like crown green bowls so I don't get his point.

I'm a goose that scrapes not a scraper of geese you scraperist. Scrape scrapeism out.

Oh and I did consider changing my name to TheInvisibleMong, no one could be offended by that surely, after all I would've been unseen.

I'm pretty sure that bulltigue changed his name to GavBT and continued posting on totalrl and lwos for a while. He was quite open about having some mental health issues and seemed to dissappear around 2004. He was a really nice bloke - I hope he was able to get himself together.

What became of Clive woody?

Was he banned?

Did he morph into an alter ego?

He married Frank Machin and the pair of them retired to North Wales where they put on Punch and Judy shows at weekends for the locals.
