Would you like to share a DU memory?

Would you like to share a DU memory?
I guess I am feeling nostalgic as a long time DUer about the "good old days", although I know we faced very serious challenges from the day the forum started.
I started thinking about when I first started posting here. Everything was new (even the internet) and it felt so empowering to communicate with other progressives.

Here's my memory: California Peggy once posted that she replied to everyone who responded to one of her OPs. And she really did. For a while, I felt that that was the coolest thing, and I tried to do so as well. Of course I didn't follow through for too long.  There's only one CP.

So many funny and significant things have happened here over the years. What do you remember?

Doug Bulna aka DainBramaged hiding the remote in the rafters at a New Jersey car dealership, his former employer.  And getting fired due to our anonymous feedback to the dealership. Good times.

So many, I'll need to think it over. The one Ralph mentioned with Doug was a great one.

I just remember the first time I came across DU in 2004 thinking "I can't believe there's so many people that are that stupid in one place. And they're completely unaware how stupid they are. How could so many be that completely unaware of just how stupid they are?"

But compared to now, they were geniuses back then. I would have never believed that their level of stupid could exceed where it was. But they continually find new ways to deep even deeper into the stupid.

Thanks for mentioning those two, very memorable events and people in DU "lore". And during the ballad of the "Big Red Round One" as Frank called him, the whole Andy Stephenson saga was rife with weirdness. Including Wee Willie Rivers Pitt claiming he was going to send ninja lawyers after those of us who "killed Andy".

The Magic AR-15 that caused a wild pig to explode.

Fitzmas.
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

that thread was a hoot...
Liberals disgust me. (Now I don't have to remember to put it on each post).

Because only the left goes searching for that which is not there in a desperate attempt to be offended about something.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

No mention of DU history is complete without Bouncy Ball.

I remember a DUmmie who launched anti-Bush signs with helium balloons and called it balloon blogging.

She's still crossing the Rubicon.

Well, moving that much mass does take a while...  :o


And now for something completely different, who could forget CalPiggy and her nausea-inducing "poetry"???

(In order to keep y'all from losing your appetite just before supper time, I've included this photo of MISS Piggy in place of CalPiggy...)

A summer 2017 declaration that Avenatti would "continue to kick ass". Which goes to show DU's (lack of) prowess at predicting. :-)
