    I was only themicrowave, Mike Van Tasselhoffen and DarkoFan.

    I don't remember what MVT was for, but DarkoFan was a Darko Fanboy parody account.

    There was a time when I think each and every one of us suspected that the other one was Lee357.
    Ah the good ol' days.

    I was Darth Tater and also had a sock puppet Bill the cat mmph acck splachf (from a comic strip) on the Detroit News and got kicked off for promoting PF.com spamming almost. I remember a girl named Diva Chick who was in love with Rascoe (microwave) who had no desire to heat up with her. So I told ger that anyone going by that name online must be ugly as all hell in real life. She exploded so it must have been true. She left micrwave alone after that. I remember telling @basketbills@basketbills who I was and a couple others.

    Lee357 WAS a bunch of other people though. Then he went incognito as Lee356 and we lost track of him for two years. Found him hiding in the "Gardening" and "Roscoe is persecuting Me" threads.

    I always liked your posts on both forums! Wish you were around here more often though.

    I appreciate the sentiment. This is the only forum I've frequented, and despite my penchant for hyperfocusing I've gotten my activity down to once a year blow bys.
    In the end I personally do better surrounded by green with my eyes off a screen.

    We all do.

    What does it say about me that I am happiest as a hardcore internet nerd when we have power outages, which where I am entails losing running water and refrigeration, because power out means computers off.

    I hope one day to be in an area hit by an EMP.

    One of my perennial new year's resolutions that I always seemed to make was to be better about keeping in touch with relatives and friends that aren't in close proximity to me. After years of holding out, I finally set up a Facebook account about a year ago (my mom & extended family were stoked ...so, well worth it.). I'm happy to join the PF.com FB group and I hope that ALL others here will do the same. It will be cool to learn about you guys and gals on a more personal level. It will also be cool to continue the virtual friendships and familiarity that we have here with each other.

    In a way, this forum was my gateway drug for communicating on the internet. It was the closest I came to having a "social media" presence for many years. I've visited and been a member of a few other special interest forums but this one is BY FAR the best I've ever seen.

    This is likely my last post here. To the all the mods and members that make this community what it is. - Thank You. ...You've made me laugh.
    ...You've made me think.
    We are brothers and sisters.

    I love you guys!

    Saw a Facebook post by lapiston. He stated his forum name at the very end. Like his idea and think we should all do it for the first month or 2.

    Remember a bet of some kind you had with a Spurs fan named "Melton" on the detnews board. Can't remember if you used themicrowave or Mike Van Tasselhoffen for that one. Don't remember the bet or why it fell apart either. Care to fill in the details, if you remember? :pop2:

    Detnews was my first voyage into foruming. Found it highly entertaining with all the characters, a number of them landing here after scoe opened this board. Posted a lot but there are only a couple things I still remember.

    I honestly don't remember. My memory was never very good, and then when I fried my brain, I lost a bit more info.

    A few things I would like to forget, but can't. I sort of envy you. ;)

    Can't believe it was only 12 years ago (2005) that this forum was started - it seems like it's been a lifetime (and I'm not that young). Lot of entertainment thru the years. Have wondered when it would end. Pistons haven't been that interesting past few years, but there's always hope for next year.

    There was something that went on the Detnews forum that had to do with muppets, but I can't remember why. It seems like I created an extra account or two to mess with someone, but I don't remember the purpose. It seems like I was Kermit for a while. Anyone remember that?

    Vague recollection but think I remember a Kermit. Sort of remember a Miss Piggy, too.

    That's funny because an old friend hit me up the other day to tell me about a mutual acquaintance.

    "Shawn still wants to pay you the $120 he owes you."

    to which I replied

    "It was $240".

    Honestly, I can't remember him owing me money, but I figured why not double it. LOL
