Does anyone here remember their very first post?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

A squealer, far worse than a tyrant.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

1. Topper has a list. :look:

2. The Open Forum was not for the faint of heart. :twisted:

3. Hjumaeni and Pot were/are very easy to incite to wrath as they took/take everything so personally. :roll:

4. As far as mods went, Lever was a fucking tyrant. :P


Pot always "smile" and it freaking drove me nuts 8-)

The open forum was a little over the top but there was some very good religion/country/economy discussions. They always went personal and then the topic went down hill from there.

I was a little upset with never winning the cup and would sometimes a little over react, now the drugs kick in and I relax :mex:

Agreed! The lady-folk hated it when things got personal causing topics to go "over the top".

BTW, NOT A FLAME ... JUST AN OBSERVATION ... :P

Yeah, I think "always went personal" is a little over the top.
A different goddamn hockey talk messageboard!

I don't remember my first post, but I remember being chewed out in the Open Forum in the post Seahawks/Steelers Super Bowl thread when I simply asked if people thought the officiating actually cost the Hawks the game?

It was a rather innocuous post, but seeing as I may have had a handful of posts at that time, I was prime for the picking by some of vultures in the OF.

:lol:

Before I began posting at Central, I lurked around for almost a couple of years and loved reading posts of old-timers going at it. Finally I signed up an account and waded into the posting.

It was a pretty tumultuous time, there was an influx of new posters after the lock-out, and I'm pretty sure I was clumped in with the rest of the new trash until I got to know people better.

Man, some of those battles in HT and even the OF I got into the first couple of years makes the Corner look like a play-pen...and I was the more mild-tempered and less cutting type of asshole.

How do you get personal on an anonymous message board?

Sounds like a handicap, folks should be more guarded of their insecurities.
