    Wow, crazy timing!

    Life has kept me pretty busy and I haven't had much time to follow sports very closely for years. I'm not even sure when the last time I posted on here was, but PF.com has remained dead centre of my favourites bar since 2005.

    I have a lot of work I should be doing right now, but for some reason, I was compelled to click that link. I don't know why. I haven't followed the Pistons in a long time. I don't think I could even name more than half the current roster.

    I clicked the link and arrived as a guest as I wasn't signed in anymore. I couldn't remember my exact user name, but I knew that it included "Jammer" so I typed it into the search bar and this was the first thread that appeared because Darth Tater - who is obviously still obsessed with me after all these years - mentioned me in a post.

    Event though I haven't been here in forever, I'm still sad to see PF go. I'll definitely be joining the FB group and will try to post more often.

    Thanks CJ, great to be back!

    All good, just been busy. Sorry for causing concern. <I'm Canadian. Apologizing is what we do best.

    @roscoe36@roscoe36 and whomever may be interested in a task to keep a non-Facebook forum going. Just throwing this out for consideration.

    Years ago many of us at Spartan Tailgate (tRCMB...the Red Cedar Message Board) became disgruntled after the board owner sold the site to 247sports. None of the old data carried over in the transition and 247 was lacking many features previously available on the old vBulletin board.

    Little over 3 years ago someone decided to start a new MSU site using free forum software at Create a free forum | FORUMOTION . Of course, no data transferred there either. Caught the attention of many RCMB posters that are still there today, including me.

    I am actually considering opening a FB account just for this. Have been dead set against doing so for many reasons. But maybe........
    I don't really know you guys but find a certain comfort in sharing with you all our Piston highs and lows.

    It's kind of nice getting the various notifications. I feel like I have some friends now. It used to just be a blank page when I'd log into Facebook.

    You should! It's actually kind of nice posting in a facebook group where everyone is jovial & civil.

    It's hard to put a figure on how much I appreciate the atmosphere of this forum and I'm glad to see it carry over to FB

    I find the majority of internet forums devolve into ugly places -- or are just plain boring. PF.com was never any of that; I vehemently concur with Walter that our intrepid leader (I will always think of him as themicrowave) and all the posters (MotownPride was the first I conversed with, HQ was a favourite, I could talk books with Darth forever, and on and on) did indeed "keep it classy" from start to finish. That's exceedingly rare, and I am grateful to everyone for helping to make this place what it was and is. I will remember it, always.

    A special thank you to dear micro. I am not on FB, so this may be goodbye. I wish everyone the very best in life.

    Sincerely, 1989

    If you do it, pick an Avatar that is not your real picture, and change the name up. Preserve your privacy, and delete the account if you don't like it.

    I use first name, middle name.

    So if I was Ronald Reagan, I would be Ronald Wilson on Facebook.
