    I never liked Pancake for a handle much. I'm sticking with VCRam. Although Ramzilla has a nice ring to it. I wonder if that one is taken.

    Re: Where have you been!

    Started lurking at stlouisrams.com would post occasionally.

    Went on to RRF where it became my home for many years. The quality of that board slowly deteriorated over the years.

    Stumbled upon ROD through a link from RRF and now have made this my go to forum. ROD is quality!

    Re: Where have you been!

    This is one of the first places I've checked out since CBS took down their team forums in lieu of a poorly structured comments section. It is probably for the best. Too much negativity exacerbated by Yahoo refugees who also had their team boards removed. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with either user group, but fans really shouldn't be at each other's throat over who can hate on Bradford the most. Civilized discussion and adherence to logic were two quickly eroding traits over there and at first glance of ESPN's forum, the environment looked even worse.

    Though there were some insightful CBS forumites that have since dispersed throughout the Net, ROD has quickly become a far better source of information and polite discussion than my previous lurking ground ever hoped to be.

    I joined the PD at the end of 2006. Spent 42 months (sounds a lot worse that way) trying to figure out who was on what side.

    Gave that up when I saw Rams On Demand as the sig on one of X's posts. I'm still Ram Quixote over there, though I mostly lurk. Lurking is the only safe thing to do at RamStalk.

    Re: Where have you been!

    My first (and only) forum before ROD was the Post Dispatch. RamStalk was the absolute worst; I remember saying that I liked the Bradford and Saffold picks...and I got utterly ripped apart like I was some unfortunate impala who got locked in a cage filled with lions. There were a lot of personal insults thrown my way, and it didn't help that I had all but hit rock bottom in real life very recently. So, like Quixote, I lurked. A lot.

    I noticed someone post the ROD link, and my fate, it was a breath of fresh air. I've found a forum that I'm sticking with.

    Re: Where have you been!

    I posted on Ramstalk. I didn't even know of other Rams forums. Then I saw X post that he was making his own forum. I respected him as a poster and Ramstalk became too much to even peruse, so I joined. I quickly came to love this place much more than Ramstalk

    It really seems in a way that we are all on the island of misfit posters. We just couldn't all fit in with the bs from all these other forums. X, I hope your able to keep this one steady. As it builds bigger, the group of miscreants will emerge.

    Oh we've had miscreants over the years. Make no mistake about that.

    See any now? :bat:

    This was, is, and always will be, the board where people can go and not worry about being trolled.

    Hey Peter! Great to see you! :dancin:

    There's a secret initiation all new members have to endure that isn't too harrowing. I'd tell you what it is but, you know, it's a secret. :shhhhh:

    Just remember, in the words of somebody famous:
    "You can check out anytime you like but you can never leave."

    Now that you're hanging out with a much better class of people, you won't have to worry about not getting invited in the future. :cheers:

    My first experience with a Rams forum was the JT the brick Rams forum. I thought I had found heaven on earth, the guys called themselves the outcasts cause they had all migrated/been booted from other boards. When that was takin down or died I dont remember which I frequented the official Rams site forum and the RamStalk. I posted something to the effect of there being to many trolls and that was my golden ticket. X invited me to check this place out and now thanx to X I truly have found the best Rams board ever.
