I think that the Way of the Goat involves "not moving from your position", so it could hardly become a movement, now could it?

Somehow I'm willing to bet that Uno's arguments were more articulate.

I've been lurking for a few months, trying to get the lay of the land, so to speak.

I guess I'll see you all around.
Are you a Tad Williams fan by any chance?

I'm not sure about this but I must have joined or lurked on theoryland longer than I thought because I remember the way of the goat debates and the flame wars that went with them but I could have sworn i only started coming here in 2001 or so.

My God, they didn't go on for 2 YEARS did they?

You probably just remember reading people talking about; we Theorylanders have a tendency to pretend like things that happened back in the day were important and talk about them a lot.

And the Wheel spins out another Hero, reborn in a new Age.

Heya Martyn! I too remember seeing your name in the past...although I got to the forums later then most in the early days, so you probably have no idea who I am. It's good to see you back on the boards though!

Welcome back! I'm gonna go with WMD, if you don't mind. It seems the most fun (well, other than Aram because you dislike that one, but I feel like it's rude to antagonize people before you've actually had a conversation with them).

The Way of the Goat thing was a humorous back-and-forth on the messageboards for about two weeks, I'd say. That's all there was to it, regardless of the impression you get from DT's little story. There was no flame war or anything like that at all, because no one was silly enough to take it seriously, apart from possibly DT himself, who out of the blue became the prophet.

Martyn -

Welcome back you old goat kisser. How's the family?

You do realize I have YOU to blame for getting me into this whole Wheel of Time thing, right? I still remember the get together on the Cape when you lent me EotW.

Good catch on the Tad Williams thing. Yes, it was that Deornoth. But I loved his Otherland series even more.

Two years sounds about right.

Hey there, J. The family is great thanks. Wife says "hi".

I sent you a personal msg, Hopper, so if you didn't get it, then I fargen-hosed it. Let me know.

I have a pic of you and RJ and a bunch of TL'ers, but aside from you and Mr. Jordan, I don't remember who's who.

Sorry, Frenzy. He was an easy target.

Thanks everyone, it's good to be back. I'm glad see from the "Moiraine's Rescue" threads that motherhood hasn't changed the feminazi too much.

I thought I remembered ShadowbaneX, but too much lurking is confusing who was around way back then.

Well, it's possible. I joined the forums in June of 2000 just after we moved to EZBoard (which I think was hamster free, save for a couple of monster attacks in it's later years). That said, I was active on the main site, theories and the like, since the site first started. Or it's the lurking. Who knows?
