What happened to this forum?

Postby IBM » Wed Jan 27, 2016 9:45 am

I was a long-time poster here going back over a decade, then I remember some years ago the site went offline and then I guess this is the new (relative term) reincarnation. What was all the drama? I remember at the time PCF was probably the biggest political forum but it seems to have lost that stature. I still see a lot of old posters though, so hello!

I'm the former IronBrigadeMike (IBM), by the way.

Hey IBM, I remember you.

After a few forum moves trying to keep it together, the forum lost critical mass and people got sick of each other.

the old one crashed from the admin David's inadequacies at maintaining it and refusal for help. It was rebooted once but soon crashed again. but during that time it was up some of us were able to find refuge at another site, which eventually turned into this

Galt, approve Mike. In fact, get rid of new member approval. Flash Farley has been gone for months.

Welcome back, I wasn't involved in the drama at old PCF, so I couldn't tell you. I was part of the trail of tears that led many of us here though. Quell and Uber lead us to salvation. Or purgatory. One or the other.

Always refreshing to see an OG back in the house.
