Nature, 15 years behind TRL.  

I refuse to explain for our newer members, you just aren’t cliquey enough.

That was 2004 :P

I'm not as old and infirm as those who joined before 2000, that's when I joined.  I heard about this hip new site full of rugby's intelligentsia, then decided to join TRL instead.

There are very few of the pre-2000 left.  Johnoco seems to have left, Lobbygobbler is a rare visitor.

It might be just me and John Drake.

I'm pretty certain I was around in the late 1990s.

Could be mistaken, I'm not a scientist so lack the rigour of note taking that some may have. 

Edit:

I remember shamelessly blowing my own trumpet when I ran the New York marathon in 1999 so I'd guess at least 1998.

I think I was hanging around as a "lurker" around 2000, but I don't think I started posting until 2001-2.


"it is a well known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it."

Excellent.

I was going to put too all the post-2000 posters on Ignore, it would have been too quiet were there not at least three of us.

The good Doctor Futtocks was involved in the Cetacean / Crustacean GM food industry as I recall so that's probably at least 4.

Yes, I was that soldier. Can't recall when I joined, but I definitely served in the Claw Wars.

Who was it who had the right diva strop about cliques on the forum and why no-one would reply to him/her/it?  That was legendary, maybe not Ace but certainly legendary.

Shakes head and orders another kilo of wine.

In a universe full of imponderables, alcohol is my rock. Mind you, reality is merely an illusion caused by alcohol deficiency. More wine, waiter! And a side order of crayfish, marbled or not.

I was around for the Moby v Fin war and the forum Trashing event.

BD92 made a sudden appearance the other day on here.
