True confessions: Why did you join this God forsaken place?


Recommended Posts

I thought that without my wit and wisdom, not to mention my good looks, that this place was doomed.

LF was falling apart. I was invited to come here. Many of the folks I knew and liked there were here. So, I hung around. 😊 

The LF was my first foray into online forums.  I was there for a long time and invested way too much of myself into it.

I was on LF when it started dying, and a whole bunch of my good friends there sent me the link to the new place they were all hanging out so I wouldn't be left out.  After a few years of waiting for www.12stringwillbelieveanything.com to stop giving me 404's, My bad typing while helping a friend find parts for his Country Squire Wagon led me here.

Came over from LF...I was also on another site but I got sick of the grammar nazi's picking everything apart. 

You really need to capitalize "Nazi".  I'm surprised you didn't notice the red line. image.png.299489bee700fd6f31beeab768d392c1.png Probably also make it plural but not possessive? Or was there just one Nazi harassing you there?

Besides for the obvious, I still don’t get why everyone picks on him.

Did I answer your 4 questions?   I was sometimes reluctant to post bike info for fear of getting slapped down by VB. 

I was making a (poor) joke reference to your "Essential List????' thread.

That is singular possessive. Nazis is plural, nazis’ is plural possessive.  😉

Right? 
It’s not god-forsaken while I’m here.

I didn't have the pleasure of being on LF....... I did join Foo back in 2006 and I think a thread (probably locked shortly thereafter) mentioned the square wheels. Now Foo is lame so I mostly just stalk around here.

I started on a computer forum, Anandtech. Then I wanted to branch oot and I think it was around 1998 I started in the love forum. I was always a big fan of The Big Question in the bicycling rag, and they peppered comments from the forum throughout the magazine, so I was drawn there, and then it morphed into this, so viola!  I R here!

About 4 years ago, I googled, "God-forsaken place", and this site appeared at the top of the list.  So I joined.

Way back in the mists of time I was using my kids Walmart Mt bike to access fishing spots. After a while I realized that I was seeking out fishing spots based more on the ride to them than the fishing I was likely to find.

Perusing the internet for bicycling knowledge lead me to the Bicycling magazine site, and then the Love forum....

When the Love forum fell apart I followed the group to the new and improved diggs

Thank You  square wheels

Yeah, I am coming up blank too for ones after that.  I think the fishing one was probably too old for @Taylor 's archive.  Maybe the bus?

Actually I just remember you having that here recently.  We are awaiting Taylot's verdict. :)

And it wasn't until you used it recently that I knew that was the name of the bus. :D

Here, lmgtfy!  :D

No bus. :(

How soon they forget!  The 60s were only 50 years ago.  Wait....
