    I didn't have much issues over there as I was a new collector at the time. I participated briefly but not as much as the general group.

    However, close to the ending of the site, a prominent member ( he might have been a mod as well, if I remembered right), commented in the line of his feelings that the site may as well shut down as the 'quality' of the collectors in that forum were not 'up to par' as it used to be. I took personal offence in that being a fairly new member at the time. I can't believe someone would ever say something like that!. What a creep!.

    Wow....quite the trip down memory lane.

    And on another note....Can't....look....away....from....bouncing. ...boobs.

    Remember the giveaways? All the touchy-feely members giving away items like Robin Hood? Commie bastards.

    And all the god-damn hugging. I was so damn tired of the "huggles" and all the other bullshit.

    My earliest member of Randall Flagg is all the bouncing boob gifs.

    Kenny was a great mod, so was Airtraffic.

    It was certain non-forum mods that dog-piled on things like a respectful, but determined debate between Kenny and Rick. At least that's how I recall it.


    EDIT: I never knew Road Virus, he was before my time, but his reputation was pretty negative.

    Mike started those giveaways. I wasn't a recipient of any of his, but I have to say, they were pretty cool.

    Even after you got banned, Rick, I kept your awesome quote in my signature block.

    Brice, along with Jean, were and still are the kings of huggles. That's why all the hot internet chicks love them.

    That's what I like most about you guys. Come back after 24 hours and sometimes there's a whole new world. Thanx for the credit of starting this thread. I too remember a few knuckleheads back then with a lot of hostility. With regards to the DT set I sold. On top of the crap that was posted on the site, I received some nasty e-mails from a few of the above named. I had upgraded the Slipcase on the Gunslinger and was pretty hammered on how I made 10K for that simple change. I never got a second one though after I responded with "Yeah, Pretty cool Huh? Oh, and it was 10.5"... I was asked to leave soon after that. Looks like I was in good company.
    I guess it all comes down to a simple choice for me. "Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying".

    Greg, seriously? This makes me somewhat glad that I never was a DT.net member. I'm generally a pretty easygoing fellow but I have had my share of 'fights' over the Internet on a couple of other fora (not related to King or book collecting in general) - I have a short fuse when I feel I'm not treated with respect and a VERY short fuse when I'm not given the opportunity to explain myself properly.

    Anyway, I've never felt that TDT.com/.org is too sugary (as Bob put it). It's just the way it is and I enjoy it very much (although idiots trying to sell us copies of The Star Invaders are always a welcome diversion). Maybe we're simply a group of exceptionally mature individuals who don't need to engage in pissing contests to reaffirm our moral superiority?

    Yes, that's it. I probably misspoke. The old usenet group alt.books.stephen_king wasn't subdivided into categories or threads. It was just one continuous dialogue that encompassed all topics related to Stephen King. Most of the venom and flaming probably occurred with topics other than collecting. Since I hardly ever venture from Calvin's Corner I am not aware of other topics of discussion on this site where there is more potential for contention.

    I do remember one guy on alt.books.stephen_king named Michael who lived (or was stationed) in Korea. He claimed for months that Cycle of the Werewolf was originally a novella in DIFFERENT SEASONS and (supposedly) had the book to prove it. I'm sure he was baiting me but I really took it hook, line and sinker and debated the guy for a long time. I should have dropped it long before I did.

    And then there was one guy named Robert who insisted that he could tell who wrote which parts in THE TALISMAN, despite Straub and King claiming that even they had forgotten and, since they imitated each others style, it was impossible to know. Peter Straub used to read the newsgroup from time to time and even he was baited into joining the discussion.

    I'm mad because I spent $20 to be a sponsored member or whatever you want to call it, and I only got to enjoy it for like a month and a half before the site closed.

    But I can't be too mad about .net. I've found some of the most beautiful people in my life there. Where would I be without them, now?

    And that's not sugary, you commie bastards! That's the damn truth!

    J/k about the commie bastards part... sounded funny at the time... but it is the truth. I don't know where I would be without people like Jon, Letti, Jean, Linda, John Blaze, (to name a few) etc.,. who have always been there for me.

    I was everywhere... I feel a little intimidated and like a lesser Sai King fan by the dedication of some of the collectors out there on this site... not that I don't appreciate the collections... but I feel less worthy in that respect.

    I started my parodies there on .net! *sighs*

    And the Hasselhoff thread was GLORIOUS! Letti would agree.

    My home is where my friends are though, and this home is what we make of it and it is amazing.

    I'm pretty sure there's some healthy discussion going on right now about the death of Osama Bin laden in which Terry is involved (not in Osama's death but in the discussion). But most collectors don't leave The Corner very often and we seem to be a pretty peaceful, if somewhat isolated, subpopulation of the forum.

    Maybe we could go look in the other subforums, wreak some havoc and piss off some of the non-collectors on the forum? Should be fun...

    I collect rhinoceros figurines.. that's enough of a challenge for me. I generally find one a year to add to it and I've been doing it for 9 years... I lost a few in leaving my husband, because he "can't find them" but that's okay... I've got the most important ones.

    I think you guys should! It is easier for ya'll to infiltrate the masses than for some of us dust jacket throwing away people to pretend to be a collecter.

    I am still trying to fix that. It sucks, but a workaround is to click on Underline after you insert the hyperlink.
