Is anyone else here from the days of the OLD Org (pre-Facebook)?

Facebook, Myspace, and texting pretty much killed the Org I knew back in the '90s. I don't recognize hardly anyone on here anymore. Who here has been here since the '90s?

I miss the old gang. I miss AppleKisses. I miss AnotherLoverToo. I miss hearing about Orgers meeting one another. I actually moved to Detroit to be with an Orger. Whatever happened to my Org?

Sorry. This is a VERY melancholy thread. I'm just feeling my age and the ravages of the passing of time.

Anyway...who here was on the Org WAAAAAAY back in the day?

We never spoke much back in the day but I'm glad you're still on here keeping the Org flame burning.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Mostly, yes, but it was much more civilised than here too. Less screaming lunatics.

Gosh damn, how long has this place been around?

So, i do remember the Org from around late 1999, early 2000. Around 2001 (2002, faulty memory, sorry)is when i made my first post here(under a different name), though.

It's strange to think that even though Facebook already existed before I started joining the org in 2007, I actually started using the org before having my very first FB account... Prince.org was also where I had my very first online forum interactions. I then met a few orgers in real life, most of whom I haven't seen on here for a long time but the on and offline 2007 memories are still alive... And it was all thanks to Prince and his 21 Nights in London... cool

Every now and then I enter the chat room and type the lyrics of Empty Room, then leave again. I took a lot of peeps with me to FB, but I mostly lurk here to read IstenSzek's posts and when new leaks surface, to read how everybody moans about it OR praises it too highly.
