Started reading it in I want to say 96-97 IIRC. I posted something in error about a Balabushka from a misunderstanding I had of a Mizerak book. Jimbo tore me a new asshole LOL. I cant remember what handle I was using at that time.

Earliest post I can find other than that one, was from 9/2000

I don't like making plans for the day, because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

I don't remember when I joined RSB, was probably late 90s or 2000 years. Was part of the first RSB tournament that was in Chelsea in NY, that was a fun trip. Drove up with a friend of mine that has never seen Manhattan before so was worth the drive.

My very first experience with an online forum or group was RSB. I was a newbie with veteran RSB-ers. What an initiation it was for me to learn the ropes of threads and posting.

It was Smorgie who invited me to AzBilliards. I miss Smorg.

I was on Alt.sport.pool and RSB way back when. First post on RSB i can find seems to be 2/2/97 from my college student account and a different nickname, but that post references another post.

Hey all, it's Rufus again. I was playing a race to 9 of 9ball at a
local Tallahassee, FL pool hall last night and was in the lead 5-0.
When my opponent scratched and left me a most interesting shot.
I will try to diagram it here." snipped, the rest in in the archive.

I think I started on RSB/ASP in 1996 or so. Don't remember when we first heard about AzB, but I remember it was considered a "safe space" for snowflakes who couldn't stand impoliteness.

pj <- miss being able to speak my (so called) mind

T'was there, starting around '96.

A great site, not unlike a great pool hall filled with characters from every background imaginable. You could speak you mind and your arguments stood or fell on their merits. There were many illuminating discussion on the physics of the game, far, far before the news broke here. There were also some entertaining exchanges, running gun battles, war stories, some very funny insults, and the occasional death threat.

What was not to like?
