When the Internet was new and most of us were using dialup with Windows 95 and huge CRT monitors, the Dallas Morning News set up a Cowboys forum. It was the old wwwboard system where you didn't register to post. You just typed a name and said what you wanted. This meant anyone else could type that same handle to impersonate you. There were multiple ad hominem attacks, impersonations, multiple handles, flooding, and screaming fights. It was the wild west on this new thing called the Internet. Cowboy hater trolls would come in guns a blazin' with sheer gems of wisdom like accusing Cowboy players or fans of engaging in gay sex or just yelling, "Cowboys suck." It was before people had figured out how to run a civilized fan forum or how to stop trolling. It was especially a mess after any loss with haters inundating the place with cat calls and floods. The DMN board was such a mess that a fan who went by "Star Power" set up his own board. It was still wwwboard, but it showed IP addresses and IP blocked trolls. Even so, it was still pretty wild. Both those boards are now long gone, but I'm curious if anyone here was part of them. Nowadays I laugh at how ridiculously out of control fan boards used to be. Not that I want to return to those days. Today you can actually have intelligent conversations about the team and can find out good info. But it's fun to laugh at what a mess it used to be.
