    I believe I've been here since the beginning and I liked the Ernest era as well. I think RJMan had at one point, a Rick James avatar--he must have liked his bitches.

    I think 2003-2005 were the golden age in terms of sartorial posts when AHarris, Naturlaut, shoefan, jcusey, Manton, AK, bengal, bresch.... were a lot more active. I also enjoyed sysdoc's posts who are on self-imposed exile after the Vass debacle.

    In terms of fun, it's gotta be the ernest-Kalra-jmswentworth(and his numerous incarnations) era. Shooman was a moving pile-on target.

    I always thought PStoller was rather informative.

    That was the best, I also remember a fellow who seemed to believe some form eugenics. I could be wrong though.

    But he didn't last long.

    In a few years, we'll all look back and remember one thing:

    SF pre-vanity vs. SF post-vanity


    [​IMG] You're probably right.

    I must say that the Ernest era as well as his Second Coming is rather unforgettable.

    But SF's true Golden Age was the prelapsarian Eden before the Great Crash of '06.

    Just cuz I'ma virgin doesnt mean I cant give advice about putting it down. I read Cosmo and Vanity Girl, I know about these things. And when I finally meat that lucky broad who doesnt hoard it like its the last life raft on the Titanic, I'ma put it on her something proper.

    LapelKing: I prefer my current avatar. Rick James never had a posse. Anyway, the T4phage-marc_au epic debates were wonderful. That they were almost contemporaneous with the ernest-imageWIS philosophical discussions may point to that period as a golden age.

    My favorite thread was "The Etiquette of Farting." Posted in 2004. It's all been downhill since then.

    Those Anne Wigmore photos began to creep me out though. I never did get a chance to see marc's most infamous image contribution, though...

    IMMSMC, the period of the first Bennies' Grenson Masterpiece sale coincided with the Golden Age of SF.

    And don't forget about johnnynorman, Marc Greyson (when he's at his best behaviour), and Beaman (before everything went to hell).

    Was Kalra & jmswentworth the same person?
