Wow! This is an experience from the past, a hold over from a time just before Facebook eliminated the independent forum as the primary form of social media. I ran a couple myself. Looking at my profile it says that I joined in 2008, but it seems earlier, more like around 2006. But I could be wrong. For a couple of years I would occasionally check in and post. Time moved on, and I figured CIH joined the fate of communities I belonged to like "The New Forums," gobbled away by spambots, secret agents,  and other characters peculating from the dark web. However I see that the around 100 plus active users still busy. This has got to be one of the most dedicated communities out there!

You're right about the 2008 thing. That was the year some people tried hijacking the forum. Long story. Anyway, Nathan had to restart the forum, and reinstate us. Notice that many people here show a start date of mid-April, 2008. I've actually been here since 2006.

Anyway, welcome back!

I've been here since 2005.

I think the forum might actually date beck to around the late 90's or early 20's at least.

Most of the old timers are gone.

MoochaMoocha, Cat Lady who called herself something else before that, Banquo, PaprikaQT, Hootman, Sanguinovorous,  Big Mama, 0000 later Musicman, and of course, PaWolf who just suddenly up and disappeared last year.

Plus a few more I can't remember right now.

From the Google search page when I Google CIH:

Since 1996, the online community for advertising criticism, comment, love, and yes, hate.


You can see the really early version of CIH in the Wayback Machine (if you wanna hassle with that stuff).

Was Cat Lady aka MrsHill?

I remember LOL1955. NiteRaidah still logs in, but doesn't post. He was a kid back then. Must be near 30 now.

There's still TripleJ, right?
IrishMama?
Britastar?

Many more women than there are now.

I forget what aka's original name was.

Yeah, but didn't he have a different name at one time, too? I dunno. I might be mixing people up.

Ahh yes. Lkl2005. It was hard to figure out what to call you. Not as bad as Donathan, though. With him/her, though, we never knew who we were posting with.

Yes, Cat Lady was Mrs Hill and before that. she was Hillman when I first joined.

And don't forget Papa Lazarou. I've often wondered what became of him.

And we had a Wild Starchild for awhile, too.

Yeah, the earlier date would make sense. The height of my forum years would be around 2003-2008, and I ran a project forum in 2005-06. COMs was one of my saved communities so I must have joined years before 08'. Not to exclude-offend anyone else, but I do remember Thor, Jimbo, and PaWolf (wasn't his tagline "hory ol' chestnut?") from those days. As for the latter, PW may have passed away. I've been in communities where an older member suddenly disappears and another member in contact with them in the real world lets us know what happened.  Then again, PaWolf may be reading this right now and decide to let us know that his demise has been highly exaggerated..

I think PaW died. Jimbo thinks he got locked up for something.  Who knows!

One is better than the other I suppose. If he got locked up then I'd imagine he could eventually get back online at some point.

I don't think he's passed away.

I've done Google searches using his real name and according to all of the sites that look for people, he still lives at the same NY address he did back when he first started posting here. According to a few of those sites, he lives with his son which, coupled with the fact that he suddenly quit posting, makes me worry that he might be physically incapacitated.

I'll go with incapacitated.  He was talking quite a bit about suffering from mini-stokes or TIA's as he referred to them, and I often wonder if the big one finally got him.  I sure do miss his postsCry

I am gone for a while and Pa Wolf goes MIA!  I sure hope he is ok.  Maybe someone who knows him can contact MissytDWolf, his wife.

Unfortunately,and I didn't know it at the time, but Missydwolf passed away a while ago. I was heartbroken when I figured it out. I PMd PaW and he confirmed it. Terrible news.
