    where did you get your start on forums?

    For me it was the Charisma forums and SpiritLed Woman. They were an amazing place filled with good posts and words from God flowing. Then the crazies got hold and it became a place of dissention and strife and closed.
    I also did the christian chat sites and met a few friends i have to this day.
    What about you?

    I was on chat rooms for AOL.. met some lovely people.. some I'm still friends with today.

    After they pretty much went bust I found myself at a Christian messageboard.. I really don't remember exactly how. It was called PhilosophiaChristi.. I think.. Met some more really nice people. It was pretty much reformed folks with a few of us who weren't.

    Then there were a few other small boards, Sparrow's Hearth being the most prominent .. also a Christian board.. I forget the others until one of the people I Met at SH found FFF (or whatever incarnation it was at the time) and tried to get me come. I was resistant.. but ended up coming.

    Made some more really good friends, and stuck around!

    AOL chat rooms...

    I came up with an auto reply program that cranked scripture into the rooms. drove the atheists (and a few Christians) nuts.

    God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power to save you!

    Started on the Crosswalk.com forum, back in the late 90's, then went on to Charisma and XN (before it got really ridiculous)...this was around the time when everybody was talking about Carlton Pearson/universalism...It's also where I found out about the Smithton revival (mostly negative) and "revival" overall..I had no clue about Toronto or Brownsville until I started on forums.

    I had heard about FFF on Charisma..somebody posted about WOFman (I think that was his handle back then) having his own forum, and I came over along with a bunch of others.

    I started out on FFF in 2007 at the urging of my son and niece (Rebeky.) Sure glad I did!

    I started out on the Church USA forums, but it underwent some changes and a lot of the regulars wound up on a site called Chat Coliseum. When I found FFF I told a few folk about it and they came over too...that included Whistler and Aphobos. ;)

    Like others, I was on the old Charisma forum until it closed and then moved over to ff forums.
