Oldies,Do you remember your very first post?

48 replies
Hello,
I have been a member of the Warrior Forum for many years,
although I do not have thousands of posts like many others.
I was just wondering to myself what my first post was on this
forum.

I know I would love to see mine.
If you remember your first after thousands of posts you have a great memory.
Anyone care to share.

    Hi Lou

    I don't remember what my first post was, but I certainly remember it took me a while to actually do it

    There were a lot of very well known Im people posting on the Warriors at the time, and it took me ages to pluck up the courage to convince myself that I was good enough to post myself. Plus back then all posts (especially from newbies) were moderated.

      Yep. I even remember who sent me the spam that inspired that first diatribe.

      I won't mention his name, as he's legit now. Genuinely, seriously legit. But back then, if I'd have been able to get my hands on him...

        Hi,

        I had a huge row with someone about launch ethics.

            Hi Mike,

            I remember it...that thread went nuclear
            Yeah lol, it made the Hadron Collider look like a child's 'My First Chemistry Set.'

            Hi Paul,

            Was that your very first discussion here? Hell of a way to introduce yourself.
            Yeah, I'd just refunded p***** f***** and noticed a conversation going on about it here, while searching the SERPs. I was still mad, and decided to jump in on the side of someone else who felt the same.

            It's funny how I meet people through blazing rows. I met someone else in the b******** m******** forum who jumped to the defence of J*** W*****, who I was rowing with because he was defending M*** F*******.

            I spent about a year chatting with that guy on and off and kind of/almost worked together on some projects, but he turned out to be a bit of a scammer in the end. My gut instincts saved me, I think.

            But the row I had in here was the most productive, as I met most of you guys. Luckily I paid attention to the people here, calmed down a fair bit and don't row as much nowadays. It was epic though, about 7 pages and it seemed like everyone on the forum got involved in some way. It's probably good for me that it got nuked as I was probably way out of line and F.O.S. :rolleyes:

            I have a fond memory of you going to my IM site and bringing something I said on there into the discussion to try and make me look even more silly. But I reckoned that secretly you were impressed...

    Nice post...


    jk


    Without burning up a bunch of time digging, the oldest post of mine that I could find in the archives was in a discussion about Gary Halbert's prison time. While searching I also found a forgotten thread I participated in about six months after joining where David Schwartz demonstrated a very broad knowledge of the new thought movement. I had it printed out somewhere, but now thanks to this thread have it bookmarked.

    Thanks.

    I found the WF by searching in Google for 2checkout.com

    There was a WF member who was about to fulfill an obvious fradulent order to the Philipines

    I joined so that I could warn him but he did not listen to me anyway. In any case, I certainly have no regrets in joining even though my original intention was to help.

          "Heated discussions?" I still refer to those as 'running gunfights.' When I see what people get all up in arms about these days, I wonder how they manage to live in a world with rough edges and sharp corners.

          There's a trick to winning arguments. I'm not sure I should be revealing my secrets publicly, but here goes: Don't argue with people when they're right.

          Does wonders for the batting average.

          And no, you didn't send me that spam. Or any other, that I'm aware of.

          Roger,
          I have a fond memory of you going to my IM site and bringing something I said on there into the discussion to try and make me look even more silly. But I reckoned that secretly you were impressed...
          [chuckle] I did that a lot back then.

          I've been very impressed with the way you responded to those arguments. Not during them, but the thinking you did after. You got tougher in the parts that stood up to your own scrutiny, and dropped the stuff that didn't. That takes a level of personal honesty that most people don't care to summon up.

          Hi Paul,

          Thanks. It's stuff like this that helps me to learn -

          There's a trick to winning arguments. I'm not sure I should be revealing my secrets publicly, but here goes: Don't argue with people when they're right.

          You have a way of making the profound look too obvious and simple to be profound, at first glance.

          I guess it's because there's a difference between just being aware of something, or recognising it's value and recognising that even though it might be obvious, that doesn't mean that it's being implemented or even better - developed as a subconscious habit via conscious repetition.

          While randomly reading here earlier, I saw another couple of sentences that stood out. It was an old thread that had been bumped and you were offering a free download of a goal-setting ebook and this advice -

          What you need is something to beat, not something to chase. Set it up so it's a competition with your projections.
          Again, the profound message in there, (even though it's based on a simple, subtle difference regarding how to view things) happened to be the ideal way for me to approach a current problem from a different angle.

          So - thanks!

            Roger,
            You have a way of making the profound look too obvious and simple to be profound, at first glance.
            "It pays to be obvious, especially if you have a reputation for subtlety." - Salvor Hardin, First Mayor of the Foundation (I have learned a lot in my life from people who never existed.)

            It is my firm belief that what people describe as profound is merely something so basic and obvious that they never really noticed it before. It's the stuff that stares us right in the face every day, and gets obscured by our obsessions with labels and categories.

            For example, if I included that same statement about arguments in my newsletter, I'd wager that no more than 6 people would really understand it. Everyone would get the surface part. Many would even chuckle. But grok it? Probably 6 of them. 10, tops. And these are smart people.

            It's easy to get so wrapped up in thinking that we don't make time to understand.
            Again, the profound message in there, (even though it's based on a simple, subtle difference regarding how to view things) happened to be the ideal way for me to approach a current problem from a different angle.
            I'm glad it was helpful.

            By the way, you just gave away the punchline to the current series in the newsletter.

                [ahem] I did not quote Asimov. I quoted Salvor Hardin. The better to make my point with, my dear.

                I actually considered creating a spoof user account called "The Mule," to debate with Thaddeus T Hogg. The thing that decided me against it was the thought of having to decline the dozens of proposals or marriage from certain of the Scottish and Japanese contingents.

    Way to far back to remember but good to see some old warriors still around. I am not much into post count or sign up date as it means nothing to me. My date and posts were lost when forum was changed but I was number 52 or 53. See can't even remember that LOL

    I was not much of a poster my first few years here and I have taken time off from forum over the years so my posts should be over 5000. What I do remember is that the warriors of old were a different breed and much more helpful.

    Curious to see who remembers...

    My 1st was an intro in the PIPS section. Wandered into the OT Bar and stayed there for a very long time. It was exciting with the then bar crowd. Pity the posts did not count. At that time I was scared of venturing out of the bar, until I finally realised that it was not productive.

      Some of us old timers forgot what our accounts were and had to sign up again. For me my original account was Megabiz and my info was lost when forum was changed over to new one so my date of 2003 is wrong.

        I first was a member in 2002 or 2003 through a purchase of something Allen was selling. I spent almost a year visiting here and there and didn't post - but what I learned was how much I didn't know.

        Came back in 2005 - had lost my logins so re-signed up and when I first posted I was almost immediately called out by someone I'd banned as a Mod on another forum. Oops. That was not a pleasant exchange.

        It is my firm belief that what people describe as profound is merely something so basic and obvious that they never really noticed it before. It's the stuff that stares us right in the face every day, and gets obscured by our obsessions with labels and categories.

          Thanks, ma'am. I'm to the point where I almost don't believe in writing skills, though. What most people call "writing skills," I now summarize entirely with the aphorism: "Say exactly what you think. But be vigilant about your thoughts."

          Good writing is nothing more complicated than clear thinking, rendered in a format that others can share.

              Damn....that's been a long time ago.

              But I still remember.

              I think I tried to score a date with Rachel Rofe.....if memory serves me right.

              I closed the deal.....and we met at a Dale Carnegie Seminar in Bull Head City, Arizona.

              Got kicked out...cuz I lit up a smoke in the back of the room...cuz winning friends and influencing people isn't exactly my modus oparandi.

              Still feel bad that Rachel got the fall out effect from all of that....cuz NOBODY has ever been kicked out of a Dale Carnegie event...but us.

              To me it was a badge of honor...to Rachel...it was humiliating. Sorry , Baby.

                Ahhh....I agree, but would also add -

                Those who practice continually can (once at a high level of proficiency) easily lose track of their progressive refinement and improvement - particularly if they mix with those who are at a lower level because then there is no easy yardstick to provide evidence of this improvement. For example, the ability to 'render' that you refer to above.

                Unless I'm mistaken, the skill of Confucius lay mainly in his ability to render his clear thinking in a format that was concise and that others could share. But I'm sure that the difference between him and everyone else was more than just the fact that he bothered to write it down and display his ability.

                Even though clear thinking (for example) would appear on the surface to be something where the person trying to achieve it can easily jump from 'not clear' to 'much more clear' just by being aware of it and trying, clear thinking actually has a lifetime's worth (or more) of advanced levels to be discovered.

                Plus if I were to exchange the word profound (as you have shown that it wasn't the right choice) with something like (I don't know the word for this, or can't remember it) - 'hidden by it's obviousness', then perhaps that would explain why I think it's so valuable? It's hidden from the majority, but nonetheless important.

                If someone can 'hit the nail on the head' continually, on the one hand they are 'doing nothing special' by doing so. They are just being accurate, an ability which the majority are designed perfectly to do. But in a world where the majority are more likely to hit the thumb supporting the nail, because they allow themselves to be distracted, lazy and oafish, the person who can hit the nail 24/7, at a moment's notice, every time of asking - IE - they are trained to be 'permanently hammer/nail ready and proficient' - that is something special.

                I think I tried to score a date with Rachel Rofe.....if memory serves me right.

                I closed the deal.....and we met at a Dale Carnegie Seminar in Bull Head City, Arizona.

                Got kicked out...cuz I lit up a smoke in the back of the room...cuz winning friends and influencing people isn't exactly my modus oparandi.

                Still feel bad that Rachel got the fall out effect from all of that....cuz NOBODY has ever been kicked out of a Dale Carnegie event...but us.

                To me it was a badge of honor...to Rachel...it was humiliating. Sorry , Baby.

                hahaha... I forgot about those days

                My first post was back under a pseudonym, "Olga". hahaha.. I didn't want to use my real name because everyone seemed so mean on the forum. I didn't want to look stupid for asking questions.

                Obviously, I eventually changed over.

    I got in an argument on the copywriting forum about offering a portion of your profits to the copywriter instead of a flat fee. Basically, my point was that when you're offering a percentage, it doesn't just mean you don't have money... it means you don't expect any, either. After all, you're certainly not trying to give me free money - if you'd offer me 50% of your product sales instead of my flat-rate fee, clearly it's because you expect 50% of your sales to be less than my fee.

    When I first joined I had a bunch of newbie questions that I'm not very proud of. Haha!

    I think my first ever post was something along the lines of...

    "How much money do you make online?"

    I kept probing and asking stuff like, "What's you're most profitable niche.." etc.

    At the time I couldn't understand why no one would reply. LOL

    Since then this forum has taught me how to "give" before you "get".

    Are your serious? That's like asking me what my first word was as a baby!

    If you're referring to the FIRST warrior forum, that was back in 97 or so can't even pin point the YEAR talk much less of the first post... and it wasn't even in these nice looking posh forums with all the cool gadgetry y'all can play with now.

    It was in that oh so plain unisol something .com? Anyone remember that? Oh the golden years. I do miss that forum, I found it once, but lots of its links led to dead ends... even with wayback

    Funny thing is A LOT of the discussions we had then, new folks are having now, history just seems to repeat itself, maybe it's time we oldies all just retired? Hmmm... retirement... interesting thought at my age! LOL.... When I say that offline people think I'm nuts,... "Retiring at less than 33?" They ask. "Are you mad?"... "No" I say "In IM years I'm actually closer in age to Methuselah..." -- That gets them wanting to ring the doctor's office

    Kunle

    Edit: Success! I did find some of the ancient warrior forum posts... maybe worth looking through these if only to get that nostalgic feeling

    http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://....191128-3.html - this is one of myyear 2000 posts I think...

    http://web.archive.org/web/200606251...index.hot.html -- the old main warrior forum

    http://web.archive.org/web/199902021....com/warriors/ - sometime back in 1999 seems to be as far back as wayback will go...

    I may have mixed some links up, go easy you know why by now

    hmm i sure dont remember my first post as this is the 3rd or so incarnation of the warrior forum and my 3rd profile. Started in 99ish i think as searchlynx back then we had to pay for access was part of a membership.

    What wild times those were on the first forum. Everything was moderated back than

    I don't have thousands of posts either... heck, I don't even have hundreds, even though I've been a member for 3 years now. Still, I can't remember what my first post was, but I do remember it didn't get approved for publication.

    I'm sure I can easily go back and find my first post which was approved and published, but it's really moot now compared to the wonderful ride I have been enjoying on the Warrior Forum train.

    See ya at the next station!
