Skip to comments.OLD TIMERS (Part One)
Posted on 06/03/2013 6:37:03 AM PDT by Lazamataz
I was going through some old files on my hard drive, when I discovered a series of threads I preserved from the 1999-2000 timeframe. I started reading through them and I was amazed at the number of people who had been on here, who I lost track of, or no longer see on the forum. I know, some of them are dead, some of them banned, some of them moved on... some of them even changed name! But I would love if any or all of you checked in, informing me of your status. I'm especially interested in hearing from the dead ones, I am very curious about the afterlife.
No, but seriously, I will fill out this chart best I can and the rest of you chime in if you want. I am eager to hear from many of you that have lost touch in the last decade or so....
Here is a complete list and the current status of these old-time Free Republic members, to my knowledge.

I read and REJECTED IT! JeanS and I are totally and completely unforgettable!
So sorry to hear that. My sincere condolences.
May Bella be at rest in doggie 'heaven'.
“Still crazy after all these years.”
There is a lot of that lately
Thank you so much.
You two are hardly forgetable — instead, Laz has it right with his song choice.
I used to watch newbies and how they reacted to a Deb slapdown and it was a multi-faceted variety of funny.
Then Jean would post something important and newbie would slam her instead of refering to the author with there comments and couldn’t figure out why she ignored them so they would post it three more times.
I don’t think I saw Stand_Watch_Listen on the list but he was still around the last I checked.
Haha! Those were the damn days!
I kept thinking that the legacy threads would someday be reconnected and all the old OWK grand duels I had are now sadly permanantly gone.
You were smart to save all those old one that brought back good memeories.
Checked in.!? Gettin’ old.
I read it and re-read it! Where is the “all for one and one for all”? You are still walking a shaky line on my ping list-— if I had one. At least I share anonymity with JimRob!
Back in the WebTV days, I keep trying to convince a lefty co-worker of mine to sign up.
He came in one day and said he had registered the night before and talked with some cheerleader who lost her sweater.
It was then that I began to believe that maybe there was a God afterall.
My Forgotten Man (Woman too)
I used to think that Deb had to quit posting because she would get laughing so damn hard at the consternation she would inspire — she could truely generate the LOLROTFPIMP status in we bystanders.
My WebTV is up in my closet! I thought ClintonIsaLiar and I were the only ones! Miss you.
Still alive and kicking here, and probably on some government list...
Still alive and kicking to the chagrin of some, surprise to others, and disappointment of many. Those bastards, I will outlive them all!
I’ve never even heard that song before. Amazing. Haunting like “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?”
That girl is good. I wish I had half her wit.
And never an actual personal attack.
Now Jean, this is Deb we are talking about. She made 47 different newbies and whiners go get that "low T" medication check-up by my last count in 2002.
Wanna cry harder?
I feel so honored to have introduced you to one of the single greatest songs in history.
I hope you enjoyed it, I know you did. I'll see if I can find some other classics to introduce you to.
I’ve seen that one. Love it.
I don’t consider “urine-soaked thumb-sucker” a personal attack.
I seem to remember a few posters being told to get back to their normal daily routine of self-abuse in their parent’s basement and leave politics to those of us mature enough to handle it — but given in your more consise pithy style.
“Urine-soaked old rummy.” I shall say no more.
Sorry, should have pinged one other FReeper. ;-)
Howlin isn’t banned.
It was an accurate description of some. I won't mention A+Bert t this point because that would be wrong.
I also won't mention when Jim took his + away.
It was sorta accurate. He was a treasure though...a slightly incoherent treasure.
Howlin isn’t banned. Her name is still there with her last post back in 07.
One of the dust ups I remember the best was the night Don Morgan and Jim had it out. Don felt he had full rein to hound whoever he wanted and Jim cut him off with a “I never asked you do do any of that..”
Better than Sneakypete shutting down DITHF, ClassyGreenEyed, or a lot of others.
Yellow Rose and I used to call it the Night of the Long Knives.
Howlin was an internet freind of mine prior to her getting active again on FR with that handle.
BTW, do any of those old threads of yours feature Eschoir?
Probably not the same song, but a masterpiece nonetheless:
I was thinking he might be putting together a new hit list for the IRS.
And yes, Laz, I'm still present! Thanks for the list. So many names from so many years ago. We should have an old timer's reunion. :)
Don Morgan was famous for his ash alerts.
Larry Lucido is a decent guy, though.
That is an unfounded rumor! There is NO proof that I am a decent guy!
He got FR into some hot water when he photoshopped an image of John Kerry and Jane Fonda together on a stage at a rally.
Registered was not banned. He got mad and asked for his account to be canceled. It wasn’t, but he hasn’t posted here since.
Didn’t get here till 2002 or so under “NewRome Tacitus”. Kept getting referred to as NRT so...
The great and awesome Jackelope Breeder passed away a few years ago. He had the most amazing tales from the border. Gonna have to take some of that fifth in his memory.
madmama - changed my name
I also miss ATRW!
At that time,WebTV was an inexpensive alternative to actual internet.
It was suggested to me by Robby Noel (FReeper robnoel, long since banned)
Robby had a stroke a few months ago, so any prayers y'all want to send his way would be appreciated.
I’m still here!
