Ha! It’s funny to think back to that kind of thing having currency of some sort. In those days I was involved in all the scratching forums with my main general music posting being on label forums (Ninja Tune, Mo’Wax, Def Jux, Ozone Entertainment) or artist sites (Controller7 was basically the Bully Records forum). I remember when the Warp forum closed. The notion of that being significant seemed odd at the time, but it was.
I remember when it started to dawn on people that a stupendously high post count was as much a condemnation of a life mis-spent as a signifier of perceived hierarchy.
