I've Been on GLP 24 Years and This Is Truly The Golden Age
Been on GLP since 1990. Those were rough and tumble days. There were only 300,000 of us on the world wide web at the time and it had only been a few years since Al Gore created the whole damn thing (as you can imagine, his constant badgering, "Are you feeling warm? Is it warm in here? Can we open a window?" was more than a little taxing).

Yes, it was a netty wild west back then and GLP saw it's share of lawlessness. Despite it all, the geep made it through (some attribute it to grace, while others give a nod to the strong, unblinking, stewardship of that ragtag team of GLP pioneers).

Looking at it from both sides now, I can see these are the 'Golden Years' of GLP.
New innovations and new and robust blood to fuel this netty thinktank. Does anyone remember Daily Radar or Boo.com? Of course you don't. GLP remains to tell the tale.

An honor.

Truly an honor.

God Bless us all.

I didn't think GLP was around in 1990?

You sure about that?

That's funny because internet forums were created around 1994-1995.

No, I don't think so. Kent was a member here though back in the day.

Best of my knowledge, GLP was created in the early 2000's by a chick named Elaine. She then later sold it to Trinity/GM.
