81. I didn't discover the lounge: When I help founded the lounge...
...many many years ago.

There use to be a private forum on DU ironically called "The UNderground" It was a membership only forum that you had to email the admins in order to get permission to join.

I was only a member for about a month (Yang joined the same day I did) until it was discovered that one of the Underground members was a troll. See, the underground was suppose to be a place where we could post and know that our posts would remain private - but thanks to the lurker that didn't happen.

So about a month or so later we complained because there wasn't really anyplace where we could just socialize and talk about stuff other than politics. Hence the lounge was born
