I had used the nick of ‘Andromeda’ because I’d enjoyed the first three seasons of that show. He used the nickname ‘Worf’ as that was his favourite Trek character.
We often agreed on esoteric points, and over time started to PM when Trolls and other insane types posted.
We had deep conversations about the duties of a moderator and what did and did not constitute valid posts, we went into the underpinnings of what was science fiction and what was fantasy. We could write books on what ruined a show, with details.
We belonged to other Message .Boards and shared them, so he popped up on Exisles and I joined Everything Trek, and we’d double team anyone who got too insulting.
As you can see Worf and I quickly became Cyberfriends.
