Quoted from KingstonMariner
Aye, I remember the pre-Rivals days. There was a point when you could have multiple usernames at the same time. It was positively anarchic at times. There was a spate of invading other clubs boards at one point. People would pile on to say, Palace's board and spam it with nonsense threads.

The old EF also had a big part to play in getting people interested in the idea of a Trust together in those pre-FB and Twitter days.

Much of that rebooting feel has gone. There's more control of content. Some posters have passed on to a better messaging board. The only thing that hasn't changed is Swin.

Yes, I'm still here, Electronic Fishcake veteran and proud (preferred those days actually) not quite ready to pass on the the great message board in the sky quite yet (3 monthly check with my very sexy oncologist in two weeks so a bit twitchy at the moment) but when I do I am desperately hoping certain posters aren't there

Quoted from Maringer
Who else here was on Billo's e-mail list back in the 1990s? (Raises hand).

Not many people had t'internet in those days. I remember being very excited when we upgraded our modem to a 56kb one.

Took about 3 minutes to download 1 megabyte.

Ermmm... I got banned from that for a drunken rant about Richard Whiteley's tie

I used to read posts on the EF.  For some reason, I could only post by clicking letter by letter on a TV screen.

I was on the old EF as well -  I can't recall exactly when I started going on there but must have been 2000 when I first got the internet both at work and at home

I had a different user name back then ( changed from  Timariner  to this one when I enrolled on to this Fishy - 2007 ) and for the few years when I lived down in Northamptonshire early Noughties after I got on-line, it was absolutely marvellous being able to find out first hand what was going on with Town

Before the internet came along and I could access it, I recall that to find out anything at all about the Mariners, was by having to ring some premium telephone number  (well that's what I told the ex Mrs that number was   )  or trying to catch snippets in the Sunday papers whenever Town played anywhere around the Midlands / South East

I was on the original fishy and you could get some right arguments then this and grim outlook kicked off.All good at times and you only have to see what happened with OP to see the potential of social media if used correctly. Me being a twit I prefer a 25 page argument with Swin over the merits of accosting Fenty in the Braintree Portaloo`s.

Yup, I was there. Was a hoot reminiscing all the old stories that we'd forgotten about.
