    And a lot of times they ask the OP "who or what is your source" and they rip the OP if they can't produce the name of a high-ranking Disney insider. In my business I know more about what is really going to happen from the sideline people than I hear from the main sources and yes, it usually does end up being true!

    Yeah, the drunk on the Disney Kool-aid, Disney can do no wrong crowd, does often ruin a bunch of threads.

    Nice posts, Lewis and YoHo.

    Sorry Kidds, no disrespect. Didn't mean to leave out Hopemax or Gcurling, either... or anyone else :worried:

    It's okay, no one usually remembers me, because I was the reasonable one. :D Not like the manhood contests certain other members (you know I love all of you guys, 'cept one) would engage in.

    And for all the people who joined post-2006ish, and have absolutely no idea of what's going on and who are all these random posters... here's a blast from the past

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=58576

    and a slightly later one

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=159733

    And a few greatest hits (I went back to the oldest posts, and pulled a few with a lot of posts - so they probably aren't the best posts). And if you feel like you are missing part of the conversation, you might be. One of the regulars decided to have the biggest DIS YAGE ever...he asked for all his posts to be deleted (but some may have been quoted).

    Okay, that's probably enough!

    Edit, I lied! I went forward a little forward in time and started running into the threads where we were supposed to put DEBATE in the thread title, because we were so BAD that our "conversations" would terrify the more delicate members of the DIS!

    AH! Hope!! Our resident archivist!! How nice to hear from you!! (psssst: Stick around, I may need your talents and skills if Mr. Kidds takes me up on my 1972 price comparison offer!!)

    And for those of you who really want to delve into the mess that Hope offered, one note: JJewell, midway through his career here changed his name to "Walt's Frozen Head". And he is 'spot-on' in his Disney logic!!

    PETER!!! Good to hear from you!! Do you miss the old days, defending Ei$ner at every turn? Or have I finally turned you to the dark side?

    Same old Pirate!! Good to see you haven't changed.

    One further note for anyone following some of our old threads:
    A poster named Scoop (it was something else officially, but Scoop was what he was called) - anyway, he deleted ALL of his posts!!!! So sometimes the conversation seems to be a little one sided and sometimes we are answering and asking things that aren't there anymore!! A little confusing, but the car #3 bunch are still - RIGHT ON!!!

    I looked over a couple of them. And I found this one particularly fun for me. It was the one where I came up with my caste system of Disney resorts!!! Check it out!!

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=107356

    I only got half way through, but it may be the one where we start comparing pricing through the years!!! Mr. Kidds!? You paying attention?

    JEFF!! Mr. Head!!!

    Have you read any of the old threads? WOW!! We were really verbose, weren't we? I have just spent (wasted) the better part of a Thursday afternoon reading the all-important... Ah... Well, lets call it - Stuff!!! And you know, we were right then and we are still right today!! If nothing else we were wordy!!!

    I LOVE this one:

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=245200

    Anyway, it is nice talking to everyone again. If only AV would check in, the reunion would be complete!!!

    Nice trip down the memory lane...it is weird seeing the threads without the posts from $@#%. Makes it hard to follow after he carpet bombed his account!

    (But I have to admit, I have gotten to know $@#% a little better outside the realm of The Dis and have had some great conversations with him. $@#% is a nice guy to talk to in real life).

    Herr Baron, I was here way back when there was just one big ugly page and just a few boards. In fact somewhere I've got stored away an original www.wdwinfo.com mug. Where oh where did I put that? Anybody else get one?

    Never got a mug. But, yeah. I remember having very few boards. It got so bad that I even went to the community boards once in a while. WOW!!! Talk about a pixie-dust crew!!! I ran from that one and checked out the debate boards. There were some serious dudes over there!!! Got very heated all the time!!

    I even went to RADP (oh God!! I forgot if that was the acronym or not!!) But any old timer will know what I mean. The was a guy named 'bicker' there!! I LOVED tangling with him. He was an Ei$ner supporter that made Scoop and The Pirate look like pikers!!! He was fun!!
