Any old school RFD'ers still alive?

Just logged in to check my join date. I'm 23 now. Just wanted to see where people have come and gone? Off topic used to feel pretty tight back in the day.

Started on RFD back when Staples introduced their 150% price match policy. What a time to be alive! Didn't register until a few years later.

I remember finding RFD when I was looking for a Licks Homeburger coupon, haha.

Yeah, Off Topic use to be hilarious and interesting back in the day. I stopped checking it out a long time ago, trolls have ruined Off Topic.

Off topic is disgusting...as you can see many on there aren't even involved in any deals discussion..just permanent off topic trolls.

2001 here :) My post to year ratio is bad, but I used to post deals once in a while back in the days. Stopped when I realized that as soon you post a deal people abuse it, and it screw up your own deal.

@mafiahitman your super old skool. I def remember Jaytee and ItemFinder haha. Najibs, Nikita, the young asian troll, ju leon, the barney dude as well at the top of my head. I found this place searching for boxing day flyers online back in 05. It's funny I was in superstore the other day and a lady was talking to her SO about how awesome RFD is. Just brought back memories. I kinda left this place after Derek sold it to Yellow Pages. Not sure why though. I spent as much time in my teens on here as I did at school so this place has many emotional memories for me. Sigh I wish I could've come to that Toronto BBQ party.

I found RFD while looking for cheap Wonderland tickets. I was 13 when I signed up.

Yeah as others have said, off topic isn't the same as it used to be back in the day

Lurked for a couple of years before I joined. Still think my join date qualifies.

My date says 2005, but I actually started a couple years before but had to re-register when they switched sites.

Someone creates an old school RFD'ers thread and they all pop out of nowhere. I'm still young compare to those here.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
