    Started posting in the UT Padres forum. Got a bit disgusted when several of them insisted I was a dude. Saw Thumper's signature with bolttalk. He may have even asked me to check it out.

    Seems like there are many former(some current) UT posters here, judging by the UT forum leading in the polls by a wide margin.
    For me, it's been mostly a sanctuary.

    UT is on the poll twice. lol...

    If you did a similar poll at Chargers.com you'd probably get similar results. UT was around for a few years before the CMB and several of the other forums.

    I always make some mistake somewhere...LOL

    How long ago did the UT board start... I'm thinking I was posting with the superfan network back 10 years...I lurked over at the UT, but didn't like the format.

    There was an "old UT" before the current form. It crashed and couldn't be recovered, late in 2001. The new (current) forum there was started in late Jan 2002. Posts were reviewed before appearing, and sometimes it could take 3-4 days for them to appear. It was horrible. Jeff Dillon finally turned on instant posting for the 2002 draft, and it's stayed.

    My first "message board" posting was the old Prodigy system back in the early '90's.

    I don't recall the name of the first board that began posting on. It was in 1995 or 96. I went by the handle MercedBolt. I migrated over to Thenflforum then here.

    I've never been a real big fan of public introductions or history. However, I got my start on this addiction of mine, in the forums of the CMB. I now call ozoneandshadow.com my home. All the while, I'm sure I've ruffled a few feathers along the way and I still post in the CMB. I find this forum to be rather appealing. You all have something to be proud of here, it is a well presented and represented board . Kudos.:bolt:

    Usenet, at alt.sports.football.pro.sd-chargers!

    Some excellent posters there. Right now I posting there, at this one, chargerfans.net, and NFL Forum. I need to cut back though, a lot of duplication. I think I will lose NFL Forum, and probably stick with the other three.

    I started out on an aol Charger Board. :tdown: around 96-97.
    The board was fun and made some friends I still have.

    I found all the other's out there. I hate the UT and Chargers.com boards. I still post at Chargerfans.net,the NFL Forum and GTP.

    I found these "Goons" by accident. :icon_tease: I'm glad I did.
    I met Trumpy ,Thumper and others last season.

    Wait until you see the "ruffling" that takes place in here .... :lol:

    Actually, some of the best "blowups" are between people that know each other and won't take it personal. On the screen though, it might look like a lot worse than it is.

    A lot of people have "history" with other posters here. Whether it's the new influx of quality posters from the NFLforum, or old UT guys, or Chargers.com posters or people that tailgate together, etc .... a lot of people "know" each other to a certain extent.

    That can be difficult for newer posters (not saying that is you, because you also have "history" with people here) who don't understand the historical dynamics between individuals or how the group has tended to act over time.

    Ruffling feathers can be a good thing. It can move the "group think" in a different direction and get people to learn more of the game we all love. Too much ruffling, and it appears to be trolling, but those types are usually easily ostracized.

    Enjoy ..... :bolt:

    I started at the Union-Trib forum last year. I found that place by chance googling for info for fantasy football. Then I read about some craziness goin on with a poster named Leisure? I think and found this one. It seemed cool, but got really into it when Steve Foley's shooting was reported here a day before anywhere else. That impressed me a lot. Also, when some poster foretold of Merriman's positive steroid thang at least a MONTH before it became news, and even though noone believed it and wrote it off, it was true. That was crazy. Along with someone calling Volek's trade weeks before it went down, I knew this place (along with the UT once in a while) was the best for news on my Bolts. I'm more of a lurker, but I'm tryin to post a bit more. Great forum here.

    I started at the NFLForum.

    Great group of knowledgable football guys. Just not that busy over there as i would like.

    Anyways the UT was the 2nd forum i went to and liked how busy it was.

    Bolttalk is another forum i go to. Since some good posters from here have left and have made their way over there, i have been going there a lot more the past few months.

    Dont really care for chargers.com too much.

    Exactly. I've only met Trumpy once but I love him. That won't stop me from telling him to KMA and SMD on this forum though, especially when he disses a good man like Nick Hardwick. Of course, he'll just say KMA and SMD right back...

    The UT was the first one I found by accident, then Chargers.com came along and now this one. I was banned a couple time from the UT and then a puter crash killed another name, but I haven't been banned from any other site, yet.:bolt:

    I started on the ESPN boards years ago, before the Drama. after that I've bounce around everywhere..Chargers.com, SDboltreport, SDUT, thenflforum.com (and the one with the "s" on the end).
    I stick to a main 3 or so that I read daily. mostly lurk though.

    For the life of me, I don't remember how found it but my first board was BoltBug's Superfans Board, circa 1996? 1997? Holy ****, 10 years! I was mostly a lurker back then and really didn't start posting until a few years ago on NFL Forums. Unfortunately, the chronic outages there has successfully scattered a good number of posters.

    I can't seem to find out how to see who's voted in the poll. Any hints?

    I'm pretty much a newbie to the message board thing, I joined Chargers.com a few years back, I post at the UT occasionally, and joined here recently. I mostly lurk at all three. Let me see if I've got everything straight. Thumper's a mod, Concudan and Charger Ray do the pod cast, Shamrock kicks a s s with X's and O's, Rexy, Chispa and Kimpossibble are women, BFISA leds the universe in post count on any board, everyone gives Trumpy crap, unless some guy named Leisure is here, all of you guys gave some guy named oldschool crap on the UT board.

    Hey TFB, I guess this means you've got a problem with your poll - you can take something for that you know...

    This is my first board, and I like the feel of the place. Except for that Shamrock dope. We should do something about him.
