Man...that wasn't that long ago. 2004...maybe 2005. I remember buying into it at the time thinking "there's no way Sage has enough time to create a forum alter ego. And Dolan is launching knowmore, it can't be him." I was able to discern what was going on other times with forum shenanigans, but I bought fell for it hook, line and sinker at that time. I thought for sure it was hacked.

Oh, the elaborate ruses of the internet. The original Catfishers. Was there not some sort of staged banning of "Steppen" as well? Man, that was the SFRF golden era.

I cant remember how i joined this forum. I must have found a link from a Sage page way back when.

This forum has influenced me in a couple of ways i guess. Its made me realise the cultural divide betweeen us and uk is way bigger than i first thought.

Also i have picked up advice from this forum, sometimes asking for it or not. All good.

I remember i asked if falling for a girl after 4 months was too fast. I was getting some negative advice from a lot of my non web peers and this forum i told me to go for it, with some helpful advice and gramatical corrections:0)...... 7 years later, the girl in question is now my fiance and we are getting married next year.

So basically we got you married. I assume we'll all be invited to the wedding.

You won't be laughing when a bunch of bearded strangers in SFR shirts show up and invite you back to their hostel.

Yeah man. Next year is a year away, which is plenty of time for us to crash a wedding in Slovakia.

I know this is an old thread, and most of what I'd say has been said already, but I'll still add to it.

I had few friends with similar music tastes to mine, and when I discovered the indie hip-hop scene, I felt 100% more comfortable about my own interests. You all continuously fed that and I loved it.

I feel like I’ve grown tremendously in the years that I’ve been a member, and there were times when interacting with all of you played a part in that. Even if sometimes I wanted to pull my hair out in heated discussions, it forced me to learn how to chill out and work on listening properly. I came here when I was too depressed to leave the house for anything other than work or to talk to anyone in person, and I loved having that. I probably really needed that. I have made some truly dear friends here.

Even if some of you are ass holes, I still love you lots. :)

Rotty - That is good news! It was funny to read that thread and the 'advice' I gave you 7 years ago. Glad you found the real thing!
