    DLP was always viewed back then as a bunch of assholes. The reality was that it was a bunch of assholes. Assholes willing to be honest and not just write suck-yo-dick reviews.

    I'm not going to pretend we weren't all young and dumb back then, because we were, but I think from the start this forum wanted to enjoy quality fiction and wouldn't suffer shortcuts. Tastes and quality evolved, of course, but the core tenet of this forum has never changed.

    Write gooder-er.

    We dodged this particular one because it peaked the year before DLP started. I googled some of the nonsense we were involved in, and the internet seems to have mostly erased it. I think we're safe from youtube expose scrutiny for now.

    Ok, now I'm curious. Anything worth sharing? You old timers got any war stories from the golden age?

    Why was the hall of shame removed anyway?

    Technically it's still there. It's just archived because it's dumb as all hell.

    I dunno, I reckon there were some there that were worth keeping around. If someone wants to out themselves as a raging homophobe or whatever, it's worth having a record of that behaviour being called out. This is starting to get off topic though.
