OLD TIMERS (Part One)
From my hard drive ^ | 6/3/2013 | By Laz A. Mataz

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.

Don't be upset if you and I are friends and you don't appear on this list. These are the names I gleaned from only 10 of the threads I preserved. If you posted, you got noticed. You may have posted to me elsewhere, but these are 10 of those threads. There are about 30 more threads.

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.

Nope, not offended at all.

Not in the least.

Nope.

Jim, I should donate those old threads to a FR Museum online or something. LOL
