I did, starting in late 1994. But after a while, I discovered wrestling websites (once I figured out I wasn't going to break Netscape by typing things into it) and they got better over time while RSPW decended into spam and trolls and whatnot.

I remember Herb. He does not email images! And Zoogz Rift, though I don't think I ever talked to the guy or really paid much attention to his posts. I missed the first run of CRZ Raw recaps but saw much of KJP's. I learned about Fire Pro Wrestling games and got some advice on importing Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium from a nice young man named Mike Quackenbush.

As for my last post there, God only knows. I haven't even had a newsreader for a year now. It's probably been several years since I even looked there. I remember caring strongly about the creation of RSPW.Moderated, whenever that was.

I'd do some searches and dig up choice gems from my storied internet past, but really, it's a ton of shit and I'm very glad that it's at least slightly hidden.

Ah yes, RSPW used to be a lot of fun in the mid-90's. Lots of interesting conversation. I miss those days.

There's a great archive of stuff at http://www.rspw.org

It's funny you mentioned rspw.org.

Both RSPW and RSPW-M (the moderated version) are basically dead.

RSPW is like 4 people posting off-topic (mostly political discussion, I would say), and on RSPW-M CRZ posted the year end awards on December 14, 2009, and there have been 6 posts since then.

Usenet is pretty much dead in and of itself, isn't it? Most ISPs have dropped access to it.

But man; RSPW was a lot of fun when WCW started to really boom and get competative with the WWE.

It used to be, and still sometimes is used as a plot device (RVD vs Taker for the title shot counts in my book),unfortunately, it's not just pheasable with so many main eventers who are above the IC, yet not Heavyweight Champ...
