The first memory I have of this site was Snowman and Safristi going at it hammer and tongs. That would have been somewhere around 2002 IIRC.
There wasn't any love lost there, it got worse over time, I think. Not without good reason.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

I had some off-line conversations with Rob (Snowie) and he was ready to find him in person and get medieval on him.  Evidently there were some exchanges between them that were just unreal - I never saw it, but Rob was a straight shooter and if he was ready to get physically violent, I'll take him at his word.  The stuff I saw on the forum was bad enough. The posts are gone, thank gawd.

Snowman - badly missed. Saf - not so much.

I always thought he was deranged in a harmless way, and I missed out on whatever finished him off, but Iím kinda glad I did.  I trust some opinions enough to accept that if johngenx says it was disgusting, then Iíll take that as honestly true.

^ Same here.  I missed it as well, but glad I did by the sounds of it.  He never really offended me as 99.9% of the time I didn't understand his posts, but he was certainly quite off.

Saffy was screwed up and never made sense, at best he was amusing, but most of the time he was just annoying, and sometimes really pissed me off

glad I missed the worst of it, wow

Hi one Audi please.
Of course sir. What shape and how big?

He certainly was an acquired taste... I remember having a run in with him on my first post after joining the forum,  mostly because I thought he was deranged

I didn't get what all the fuss was about him anyways, his posts were confusing, offensive, naaah.

Then you must have missed it.

And Jacob, there were plenty of us that applauded the banning.  We should have said so more clearly.

What did I miss??

Did you block Jacob?  Didn't you read his post?  :rofl2:

I missed Saffy's just-before-the-ban antics and we clashed once or twice but ... them were fun times when he was around.

Yes - can we have an ignore function please?
Not sure there's anyone left here with the technical ability to handle this since Wing left.
If you search on the 'ignore button' there's quite a few posts in history.

Wow I didn't know Wing had left. I guess I don't come on here enough. As for Saffy, I put him on ignore years ago. Couldn't stand his gibberish.
