The events you describe are definitely not the old days.

For me, they are Tongue

Yeah, you're still a pup on the forum. Tongue

But, seeing all those prebupescent boys, that joined after me, I feel really old sometimes Tongue

Me too, me too. And whenever I see Bushie post,  I feel old because we are almost the same age... than I remember he just acts 74, and I feel okay with it.

I think it's safe to say that one of the best moments was watching Rick Santorum go down in 2006. It's mind-boggling that he's now one of the top three contenders for POTUS.

I don't know... some elements of 2007-2009 were nice, but I was pretty uneducated back then and I was some immature high school teen... so, on balance, I think these days are better.

I do miss the old days when the goddamn TV remotes controlled everything, and you didn't need 5 remotes to open the cable, the sound thingee, the TV, the DVD and so forth.

I'm pretty sure it goes the other way around; I used to have half a dozen remotes, but now I only need one.

2004 was, of course, amazing, but right now the forum is a lot, lot better than most of 2009-2010. Still inferior to pre-2008, but a on the up.

2010 was a pretty awful year indeed, with Kyle and his legacy...

I miss a lot of the people who used to post from back in 2007-2008 too. I may not have noticed, but we don't really get Verily, Speed of Sound, PBrunsel,  and others. Those were fun tiemz.

Those Mark Warner "jokes" (apparently they had humorous intent, although I never understood how) were the worst.

You had to understand the context, though they were overplayed and thus became non-funny. Around 2005-mid 2006 the forum was infested with Moderate Heroes who believed Mark Warner was the glorious savior and the only Democrat who could win in 2008. This same crowd also thought Evan Bayh of all people was a great principled centrist. It makes me wonder why people who were around then still defend Moderate Heroism. Now that Mark Warner is a rather uninteresting and backbencher Senator the jokes no longer make sense.

I miss 2004 when I first started reading here, and then the 2007-2008 period. Only a few of my old friends still post here on the reg.

Oh, yeah, I get that. I've seen posts where Boris and Tweed talk about how great Mark Warner is. 2005 was a dark time.

The problem is that the stuff that Kalwejt refers to is from much, much later than that.
