I skim through threads generally and see you guys refer to a poster by their real name.

No, it won't. They're talking to the Mothman.

I thought everyone on this board was named Jim? Here I had my name legally changed when I joined. 8)

Jim is one of the members of the ASFMV (alt.sports.football.mn.vikings) club. When many of us posted to that newsgroup we used our real names, and that's how many of us still refer to each other here.

IIRC, this site provided a refuge to Vikings fans refugees who streamed in from the troll-torn ASFMV. Kansas Viking and I think some others carved out the Vikings Message Board and gave us this great place to vent, console, theorize, and most importantly, debate with sincere and, for the most part, respectful fans of this and other teams.

Ah, ASFMV, those were the days. :rock: Could get really strange at times though.

Great in the early to late 90s when few knew what usenet was. Thanks again KV et al for the VMB transition when the trolls and far worse took over.

I tried using usenet about a year ago and found out the hard way that my ISP dropped it.

We sure did have some strange characters on ASFMV.
