You would've loved it in its heyday. Right up your alley.

What makes you say that? (not sure if that was an insult ;) )

Talking about being "up your alley"- does Jer not know anything about this?
About CP being down?

During the golden years, it was a great place to be. Your humor and point of view would have fit right in. The things that TRFers tend to hate about it is what made it so appealing, imo.

I joined CP in 2002, right after I moved back to Connecticut from Hell. There were a lot of great personalities, some of which are still there. Only 3 of the Brit trolls are still there. I think NickSlick was here for a while. I've had flame wars with folks there that I get along greatly with now.  Again, you just needed a little thicker skin.

I like them both (*but note: the bathrooms at TRF are WAY cleaner)

And any brown smudge on any part of the facilities is fresh chocolate cupcake mix! All dirt is totally edible.

Were you ATW from the beginning or did you have a different user name? I seem to remember already being there when you showed up, but I don't remember being there as early as 2002.

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure if I started with ATW. I remember threads about Rush's first show at Mohegan Sun, because I was blown away that they were playing my little backwoods hometown.
I may have actually started out there as edhunter. But because of the crashes, there's no way to know for sure.

CP is a great place to hang out, they just run it different than we do here at TRF.  I have made a few real life friends from there, went to my first meet up hosted by Ken and Julie before TRF existed.  I even hosted one of their BARF parties at my house.  They are a blast to party with..

Slim has been posting here recently but Nickslick is banned for giving 73 a heartattack.  :lol:

I actually quite liked it at the beginning,,,think I initially joined sometime in 2003.

Never understood the I'm Bored shit, but each to their own...quite a few keyboard warriors there, felt like being savaged by excitable puppies.

I remember the political subforums being much less partisan than they are here, with some really good debate on both sides.
