Oh, he's still around. I have first hand knowledge of that.

How about Zsa Zsa?
Or WestSideYuppie?

WestSideYuppie still posts, though fairly infrequently.

You're OG if you joined before 9/11.

I knew it, Hank - just didn't know if that was to be revisited publicly...

That deserves a spot on this thread, to be sure.


That was from Kurt W., I believe.

Okay, you're OG DPF if you remember when the Forum looked like this.

Or, if you remember when there was a section of the DPF called Brawls ... for "Discussions that have degenerated into name-calling, rendering them unreadable to all but the combatants."

Maybe we should bring that back....

I don't consider myself to be really OG because I came in just after what seems to be considered the glory days around here. Kinda like moving to Manhattan in 1980.

My earliest memories are of Sheppy challenging someone to a fight at the Tenney Park tennis courts, and me thinking "maybe I should drive by there."

I'm pretty sure he forgot about you too.

I remember all of those. I think Beaver was the only one on that list who was around longer than I was. He was a little- umm- different.

if you remember the classic argument over who makes the best lasagna in the old Brawls section. . .

Hell yeah! That brawls section still makes me chuckle just thinking about it.

What about Mr. Blues and Rokker (who still visits occasionally)?

What about Blunt and Chuck Schick? Although they have not been gone that long.

Penquin is alive and well over on Madison.com (lame, slow website, but entertaining at times).

My first memory of this forum is clicking through someone's link to Sheppy's thread on the 50 states. It was one ranting or raving post after another, and I threw my head back in laughter.

I remember Blunt and Chuck Schick, too.

I've gotten into a few good rows on TDPF, but nothing else has made me as mad as that.

Let's review, because I've actually talked about the "snazzy" incident with fellow community managers in other places.

When the impending smoking ban was a big issue, the word "nazi" started showing up a lot. Not only was the Forum plagued by entirely too much smoking ban talk, but way too much nazi talk. Despite being asked to stop with the hyperbole, some doubled their usage. So using some profanity filtering plug-in, I made it so that anytime anyone typed in the word "nazi," the word "snazzy" appeared in its place. Nazi Mayor Dave became snazzy Mayor Dave. You get the idea.

Those were desperate times.

Is that pronounced, "Snaht' Zee?"
