So I joined the original Sinfest forums on Keenspot back in November of 2000. It was a huge part of my digital life for many years afterwards, including the days when the IRC chat room was popular, the ups and downs and fights. The transition off of keenspot to here was after my most active times had ended. I came across a keenspot comic randomly recently and found my way to the old Sinfest forums and then back to here. Y'all still post but it is much slower than it once was, granted it has been a long time since I was here regularly. I wanted to make this post, in remembrance of all who have come before, for those still here and those gone forever. Not to say the community is dead, but after 16 years we certainly have seen many come and go including Rei and Madman who actually lost their lives. Folks like Boysetsfire, Ferret, TwilightMage, MsFrisby, Desire, JohnnyStrider,Lily, yes even that little turd Dragonwriter, Redeye and to many more to list, some of whom are still here and posting.

So! TL;DR - Post in memory of someone you remember from the forums who you enjoyed having around who is either no longer around or not posting as much as they once did, or in grand Sinfest tradition flame the shit out of me for being a stupid lurker posting a new topic!

It's sad that people move on, though we can only hope that those who do, do so to better things ... even those who aren't with us anymore.

I miss Benny. I also miss that cow, and also Godzilla. I presume they also left because Benny did. E-Boy was also always really nice to me, even when I was a kid, and a difficult kid at that.

But missing Dragonwriter? Ridiculation is too strong a word for it.

Btw, Lily just got into some super-scientific super-cool programme at an amazing school. Go Li1y!

In retrospect, Terra Incognita was pretty funny sometimes.

yay, lily!

i think i post-date Terra Incognita. i do still miss RM, and Major Tom (although he does pop up occasionally). i'm conflicted on whether i miss ags - although he had some deplorably Faux-news-generated views, he made an attempt to argue honestly. but i'm sure he's still a solid republican, and i'm not sure whether i would find his support for trump or cruz more objectionable.

There was a time - what, 2004-2006, when RM & Major Tom used to log on about the same time as I did. I felt like a kid trying to keep up with the grown-ups. Them two guys were smart, funny guys.

For those interested, I some times check in with Halen. He generally replies: 'Bostin!' Which I guess is Thin White Duke for 'Okay!'

Also, didn't we have an Australian? He did Australian art, like setting fire to Gallahs, and smashing beer steins over things. He also may have thrown some shrimp on a barbeque once. And been a pirate locked in a literary closet. Wore a hat. Been the greatest white rapper of the 90's. Owned a cravat. Knew that 'cravat' was a Croatian pre-WW1 fashion. I'm probably imagining it.

I made a horrible mistake right there.

Please let me point out that I consider Benny as deeply serious. Perhaps the most serious of the old sinfest guard.

Once you start making a distinction between comical and serious you are leaning to the dark side.

Salted Chai, sell it at a buck-fifty a pop.

I miss Dazed2 too. I miss so many people. I even miss Feit. I miss Trusted Faith, I miss Lala, I miss the younger, funnier Michael.

Our present Michael is a terrible bore, like.
