    Negative x2 and I know there are plenty more who have been around since Zook was fired the first time.

    I don't even remember when the GSMB opened up. It crashed regularly and often times and people lost user names at times. I was always Law98 since 95 or 96.

    I remember gradually migrating from the first "forum" that I found, Swampy's Rumormill which appeared in the early 90s. I think there were some "alt.rec" list servers too before that. There are definitely some people who have been around longer than me on GSMB and that I recognize from Swampy's... though I swear the RHFactor we have on GSMB is not the one from Swampy's.

    Been around since 98 or 99. Spurdog was still coaching. ESPN had a live chat for awhile. That went away so many posters went to the Rome board then dispersed from there. I am probably one of the longest posters still around from GSMB.

    Yes, thanks Ox for this. There is something about the people on this board that make the conversations interesting.

    You can repay me by getting an avatar. I hate that blank picture.

    Gotta agree. That's how we already have 232 registered members in two weeks in the offseason. People are loyal to their group.

    We're starting to get an influx of new members, and I'd really like to know how they found us. We have 25 new members in the last three weeks.

    Went to Gatorsports, saw the BS announcement closing the GSMB, went to their FB page, saw someone posting links to this forum in the comment columns when people complained about the missing forum, clicked on the link, signed up and made a financial contribution in support.

    Googled Gatorsports.com and read a few of the topic headers and made it here. That lady at Halifax corp or whatever has no sense of humor. I thought the emails were pretty funny.

    Visited GSMB for a long time. Found this site on another board after GSMB was shut down.
