1. Oh, fer gawd's sakes... How would we recall the exact time?

One of the 432000 seconds available during one of the 30 days of April, 2001--though I started lurking January 20, 2001.

it does not. That feature probably came about somewhere in 2004 or later.

It was when Mike Malloy was fired by AirAmerica. Sam Seder directed his listeners to a petition on DU to bring Malloy back.

I've been a devoted DUer ever since.

I was thinking that it was time. I'd been lurking on and off for a couple of months...

So, I took the plunge, and my life has not been the same since!

8. Early March 2003, right before the war started in Iraq

Used to post under a different user name.

Howard Dean was a presidential candidate at the time and I ran across one of his anti-war articles that had been linked from another site to the front page of DU. It just went from there and I've been a member of this community for 9 years now.

That was the official launch of DU. It really seems like I was posting and reading DU before that, and some form of DU existed in the Selection nightmare. But I must be mistaken.

45. All right ! a fellow night owl and/or insomniac.

That actually surprised me that it was 4:30 am although I'm guessing that's eastern time(?) which would be 2:30 mountain time; doesn't sound QUITE as crazy as 4:30, I guess, at least to me. (?)
I did remember all along that it had been the 4th of July, which just seemed, and seems somehow like a good day to have joined DU.

Started reading and lurking in 2002. Move On was the first on-line community I joined in 2001. I spent time after that organizing local house parties and protests in opposition to bush's little war. I lived in a very small (republican) town at the time and had to travel to larger cities to meet like minded people.
