Happy Birthday Straightacting.com!

It will be ten years June 2, 2010 since the start of the original Butch Board at Straightacting.com!

The very first post I read on this board was from none other than jkidd back in October 2001. Billy joined SA in August of that year. I lurked for about two years before I actually joined. I can't believe it has been that long.

I must be getting old. Time really flies... but then relativity says time is not absolute, so maybe it was just a few seconds ago.

I'm somewhat "old" to this place as well. My first post was on Sept. 27, 2001. 7 months before I moved to CA, 7 years before I left.

Ok, How do you and the other old timers suggest going this? What's different now than back in the day? I myself really like this board and have seen some really good converastions and topics on here but have not formed any bonds to speak of with anyone here. Bonding here would really be a great thing.

Here's what the board looked like back in '03. Remember some of the names there? Unfortunately, you can't get into any of the threads...

It appears as though we have overlooked an auspicious milestone in the blogosphere...June 2nd was the 15th "birthday" of Straightacting.com. No fireworks or illuminations, no parades, no birthday cake or conga lines...It evidently passed without notice :oops:

I'm a relative newcomer and, unfortunately, an infrequent/irregular visitor, (damn having to remember passwords/usernames :oops: !) to the site...but I'd like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU and HAPPY BIRTHDAY and propose a toast in the hopes that the site continues...and will be revitalized.

So, Happy 15th birthday plus 13 days to straightacting.com!

Cheers!

A month and a couple days late for the 16th anniversary of SA.COM...HAPPY CYBER-BIRTHDAY!!

I'm one of the newbies on here... I'd be here more often if it wasn't for remembering (or forgetting) passwords... 16 years ago the Internet was full of predictions of iris-scans and facial recognition for ease of logging onto sites. Well, I still find myself staring at the log on screen, punching in what I thought was my log in password & if I don't lock myself out, I'm in & still enjoy the site...

This must be one of the longest running sites of its type on the web. WELL DONE!!!

Just happened to stop by to see how the board was coming along. My computer miraculously kept my login after 2 years. Seems the posts are a trickle after the heady days of the early 2000s. Nice to know it's still going though. Like a comfy pair of socks :D

Been a long time since I was here for sure.
Resurrecting Straightacting.com would require one thing and one thing only... and that's an app.

Facebook nearly killed this site, and reading some several years old posts about forming bonds etc - it did happen in many cases.

Ben! Long time no hear.

Hope things are going well with you both. Not sure if you keep in touch with Seb and Scott, but if you do, send them my love and some festive cheer.

You're right about the board though - it's outdated but still its purpose given the new posts.

Anyways, have a good Xmas to you and those who still look in from time to time :D
