4. I don't know about the first post, but I'm pretty sure the first response was
"you're an ignorant douchebag! Go back the freeperville, you low-post-count troll!"

:)

5. I saw a story about the first week of DU, but damned if I could find it now.
It was funny as hell, and there was an intern involved.

I suspect he wrote the first post. He was fired after one week, LOL!

10. My favorite part:
"The righties screamed bloody murder on the message boards, claiming that their "rights" were being infringed. As if. Basically, all we were asking them to do was leave a fake name and fake email address before they burned our house down."

:rofl:

From what I've read so far, I want that intern to visit me IRL. He sounds like a lot of fun, my kind of person. :rofl:

EarlG rocks.

11. guest
From what someone said a while ago, our number is the number in our profile minus 100,000

So, going by that, this was the first DU member:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

But...

If you go back to 99999, root is the username:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I wonder who root is. Their homepage is Democratic Underground. :P
