From Wikipedia - Re: DU.. OK, who wrote this?
"New members can be confused by DU vocabulary which includes references to pop culture ("this thread needs more cowbell"), spelling that parodies other websites (such as "HUGH!", "series", and "cazy,") and famous images ("moran"), and long-running threads that have worked their way into DU lore ("dupe," "the kudzu thread")."

That made me laugh.

9. I thought it was pretty good
I'm sure it has been "edited" many times, but at least they keep it up.

23. And nothing about Oscar or Please Remove? And the What Would Jesus Drive thread is just gone, I gues
Heck, we made a couple of national stories with "What Would Jesus Drive"!

Tell me I'm not the only one who remembers that?

30. At least the section about 'famous members' got removed.
Someone edited a few ones in there who sport a nice grey tombstone here. ;) Aside from egolomania, I guess. It was like I would edit my name in there ... :eyes:
