It just occurred to me that I've been a regular here on this board for 10 years!

I first visited this site back in August of 2000.  (Has it really been that long?) 
I was 26 at the time and now I'm 36.
I can remember with great clarity the first time I came here.  I was at work and reading Andrew's reviews...specifically Bad Taste and Brain Damage.
The air conditioning had failed in my workplace at the time and I was wearing a black Papa Roach concert T-shirt. (yes, they let us wear that kind of clothing at that job)

I didn't care about the extreme heat because I was totally engrossed in this site.

Thank you Andrew for providing me with ten years of great entertainment!
And thank you to everyone else for keeping me company on the forum for all these years!

Here's to ten more years!   Cheers

Hear, hear!

I first came to this site in I believe '98 or '99. I remember because Andrew's site had movie clips, which was a rarity in those primitive days. I didn't post on the message board for a while, but when I did, I've been here ever since.

Great site, great people.

Yeah, I remember you in those days, Ash: young, brash, with a lot of hard things going on in your life. I'm glad to have known you then, and glad to know you now. And glad to have been a part of this site for more than a decade!

It's funny how quickly the time goes by.  I am glad to have known you all this time, and I'll raise a glass (later this evening) to another 10 years.

Wow Ash, that's pretty awesome.  Right, I'm just reaching my 2 year anniversity and now you made me realized how much of a newbie I still am.   TeddyR  When I get older, I'm going to be like you!... only in by sticking around for as long as you!   Smile

Amazing, Ash!  I've only been here 4 years and I already feel like an old timer.  Folks like you make me feel young again!

It's only been about a year for me. In that time I have agreed with members, disagreed with members, p**sed members off, and been p**sed off by members, and alot of all of the above. One of the things I like most about this site is that it is nearly a bastion of free speech and open discourse. Sure, we talk about all the bad movies that we love, but was also talk about hot issues, and at no time have I ever seen anyone's views or opinions restricted. I know I have attacked some views, and had my own attacked, but we keep going and, although there is the occasional scrape and hurt feelings, for the most part we seem to respect one another and keep the open discourse happening.

Cheers to badmovies.org and to its members.  Cheers

Three years here for me . . . and I must say this is one of the most fun, eclectic, and enjoyable internet communities I have ever been associated with!

Congratulations!  I've been here as THE BURGOMASTER since November, 2005.  However, prior to that, I was on as JOE and prior to having a profile I just visited primarily to read Andrew's reviews.  So, total time for me is somewhere around 9 years or more.
