What is the history of this forum again?

#1  Postby Paul1 » Mar 05, 2016 5:25 pm

Hey all,
Been 5 years since I was last here apparently, and then one day I stumbled upon this forum and my memory was jogged.

My question is: What was the history of this forum again? Is it related to the Richard Dawkins Forum (which no longer seems to exist)?

Welcome and yes was a direct consequence of the RDF debacle/meltdown.

Yeah, the Final Meltdown. First meltdown was the destruction of Feral OT, which lead to the establishment of Rationalia. Then the Timmonen Massacre about a year later forced everyone else out of RDF and over to Rationalia for a bit, while Life got this forum up and running.

I just looked back at Paul1's last post in 2011. It was in a bitch thread started by the late, unlamented Strontium Dog. What surprised me most about that thread is the complaints about "what is this forum coming to?"

Anyway, Paul1, I hope with SD's banning that you find the forum more enjoyable.
