I was going to dig one up from the 90s but apparently that forum crashed and restarted from 0 in 2004 :(

USNET and other SubNets were around for years before the Internet and Netscrape
I used them in college
There were no websites, only forum type blogs/chats where you could attach files

For my prize since I can't receive Karma, I would like one of you to Karma Pin this thread!

Who knows what else is out there
Maybe John Titor will show up with something from the 1960s?

if you're looking for the older version of "today's" type of forums, i'd start digging at old UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board) / Infopop forums. It was written in perl back in 1996. Anything else you find will probably look like old text only usenet chains.

After you visit that link you will see the top link referencing the actual post. When you click it will take you to a google newsgroup
You will need to get all the way to the bottom of 700plus pages but it will be there!

I started my BBS in 1988, had lots of messages in that forum, but it's not "online" like websites are today. I was on Fidonet around 1990. Had to install a front end that grabbed those messages. Used Remote Access BBS software. Similar to Renegade.
