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’ve always loved you...
Is that you, Janet?
Please check in. Hope all is going well with you all.
Are you cute and female?
vetvetdoug is still around. I heard from him in January about my dog.
Dr. Raouel died recently. Several threads about that.
Clinton’s a Liar is a free lance writer who checks in from time to time.
Doctor Raoul is also deceased. There were some nice memorial threads for him recently.
I’m still around...mostly in “lurking mode”...things have changed a lot around here in the almost 15 years since I joined FR...miss the old posters...:(
I used to be classygreeneyedblonde.
I’m not offended by being left off the list.
Nope, not offended at all.
Gee, it’s disappointing not to be noticed.
But I’m not offended.
Not in the least.
Doctor Raoul passed recently.
But you’re right, there’s a lot of names on there I haven’t seen in a while.
what, no Qiddom?
(The name so nice he always signed it twice)
and btw... I STILL MISS HOWLIN!!
I’m around defending liberty to offset liberalism and socialism to the best of my ability.
Still alive and kickin’. :)
Jim, I should donate those old threads to a FR Museum online or something. LOL
Good to see you bro(s)!
Im still a noob . . .
Many of those names were on the ATRW Threads....
Ping to ‘97/’98 FReeper thread. Debs .... where are you?
I’m not dead...I just smell that way...and Jim Rob hasn’t banned me...yet!
Who you calling an old timer, bud?
I hope you are doing well.
If she is, Laz’ll hit her!
You are merely Deceased!
CommiesOut - He is gone but I wish he was here. He was in prison in Poland by the Communists. He understood what we are going to face soon. He was a great guy.
Alive and well, thanks.
With a screen name like this, how could I ever go away?
Working for DHS now compiling a list of malcontents?
Still here never left.
Yeah, I was going to add that CommiesOut was gone. He took the picture on my homepage.
Alamo Girl’s page is still up. http://www.alamo-girl.com/
Still a great resource.
I didn’t make the list, but I’m from the Class of 1998. Still here!
Remember “Murray’s Mom?” I could never tell if she was a sincere liberal or just a disruptor.
I see these “old-timers” around regularly. So I know they’re not deceased. :)
Alamo-Girl; Billthedrill; Cicero; dirtboy; EternalVigilance; exit82; FrankR; Hildy; Jeff Head; ken5050; Lurker; PJ-Comix; Squantos; TheCajun; Travis McGee; unixfox
I’z heah, boss ...
I recognize a lot of those handles from my lurking days. Many if not most have gone silent. Some though, I think, are still posting form time to time.
Laz, still a satisfied customer of both you and FR.
Will celebrate 15 years here on Dec. 30th.
I’m not on the list and I’m not dead.
Guess I’m in FReeper limbo.
I think I am still here
I’m not normally nostalgic, but wow how things have changed!
A+Bert wasn’t on your list. I lurked for months then I signed up in late ‘97. When I finally got my courage up to post a reply, Bert attacked me and I ran off and hid. LOL!
I’m not like that anymore! ;p
That seemed kinda uppity of me to account for people who’ve been here a decade longer than I.
Didn’t mean it that way. Just tryin’ to help.
You ain’t uppity. After all, you made me a sammich. ;)
Do you know who the first 10 or so FReepers were, besides yourself obviously? Just a curiosity. :)
Yes, you are.
But personally, I miss ParrotsUp. Now THAT was a FREEPER.
Since Jan 31, 1999
I originally found FR while still reading posts in a group that was originally on Prodigy...anyone remember that group?
Heh. I am a b*tch though ... in a binder.
