"The oughts" -- I vote for that, even though it sounds like Walter Brennan.

How about "The zeroes?" I consider that very fitting.

Your ideas?

1. Let's see...
"Back in the zeroes...." I don't know. How about "That's so oughts".

I think we really need a thinktank for this one.

5. I like to call it the (letter) O's.
MSM is so fucking stupid, it's a wonder they thought up MSM.

I have their "news" page as my startup page, and I'm always amazed at their lack of intelligence, taste and sense.

Or maybe the "ought-oughts" :P
