Re: How Did You Find Out About ER Forum

I answered Motley Fool alumni, but I was actually only a lurker and never posted. Doesn't seem to have held me back here.

Re: How Did You Find Out About ER Forum

I forgot exactly how I got here. I think I googled something, got to the REHP, saw Firecalc, then got to reading the forums here. Eventually I started posting after lurking a while.

Re: How Did You Find Out About ER Forum

Now that you mention it, thats exactly how I ended up here. Got to the REHP first and saw his thing pointing to the motley fool, dory's board and i think one other.

Maybe thats before we offered up googles of various naughty and disgusting quips. Else I'd have found the place sooner.

Re: How Did You Find Out About ER Forum

Now anyone searching on "Rhino" and "thong" will end up here. Everyone, make sure not to mention "Rhino" and "thong" too much on these boards, since mentioning "Rhino" and "thong" could make the google crawlers think this message board has something to do with "Rhinos" and "thongs". We wouldn't want anyone to make the mistake of confusing this with a "Rhino" and "thong" appreciation forum. We definitely don't need any more members with a bestiality fetish who like "Rhinos" and "thongs".

The only thing worse would be "elephant" and "thong". Yikes! Don't google those two together!
