They didn't quite hit the surreal level I was aiming for.  That and searching through Delphi is a real pain in the arse. 

Tony Steele and the DoF weren't on Delphi; they were on the 2005(?) Beehive archive.  And technically, Tony did make it onto your list, though the DoF didn't--he's the "Tolkien is real" guy, though I don't think we knew there was a connection at the time.

...like the Pagan Reparations gal. 

Lyric and I still joke about her whenever we see some beautiful old European Church or the like. For those who don't know, this person wanted all the churches, monasteries, etc. that might have been built on an old Pagan holy site torn down and the sites returned to "Pagan control." As I recall, she got quite upset when people here at TC thought that was a really bad idea.

And then she came back and started a new thread when she insistd that in a survey, 'lots' of Pagans had agreed with her.  At which point posters switched to critiqueing her scientific method Smiley

And if IIRC, the pagans she "surveyed" were at some pagan festival.

Randall and I still laugh about this whole thing.

I had forgotten all about her return visit.  If anyone here still has a paid Delphi membership, please try to find these threads. They should be good for a laugh or three.

The Narnia Flounce:

http://www.ecauldron.net/ab/index.php?webtag=CAULDRON&msg=8109.1

A young Christian girl offered to answer questions about the Bible.  As we pride ourselves on being an interfaith forum, this wasn’t a problematic thing.  In fact, for a few posts it looked like it would go well.  People asked questions.  None of these appeared particularly harsh, but the original poster didn’t take them too well.  The poster apparently thought we were the forces of darkness, and expected to be martyred.  To say that the flounce confused us is putting it lightly.
I have fond memories of that one, because it's also the Cookbook Thread.  NarniaGirl flounced quite early on (something like the tenth post in the thread, out of over 400), but the thread went on as a prime example of Cauldron Thread Drift and eventually found its way onto the subject of food and from there to swapping cookbook recommendations.  (I know this without looking, because I had to go dig it up - out of the slow archive, where the search function doesn't want to work for me! - at least twice; the third time, I found it easily because I remembered what its original topic had been, and saved the URL as a bookmark.)

I have often thought we could get a thread easily over 1000 posts just by talking about food.

I think that's the great love of TC's membership.  Grin

You're close, she flounced on the twelfth.  However, there are only 216 posts in that thread.  Sorry about the small nit-pick. Tongue

What I can't figure out is if I was posting at that time because that seems like the type of thread I would love to be apart of.

Ah, okay - I was going from memory, and must have conflated it with another thread in which topic drift into food brought it to 400+.  (On that version of TC, we didn't have a Food & Cooking area at all - the folder closest to that was Crafts & Hobbies - so it tended to pop up everywhere.)

That's in the 2005 archive, so it's at least two-and-a-bit years ago, which I'm pretty sure is before your time.

I was around in 2005, I just don't know if it was at a time when I had internet access.

I was wondering, is it taboo to refer to oneself as a Warlock or is it permissible?

The form that was used in medieval Europe was from a Welsh root word meaning "oath breaker"

OTOH ...

IIRC, there was also a similar Norse word that translates as "spirit song", and could loosely be interpreted as referring to a shamanic practice

Oh yeah.  Although is it possible to warlock a non-Wiccan?

If I ever find my way out of the grey mists, I'll let you know
