Post Is there a backup archive of threads from 2006?
I tried my hand at trolling once and invented this guy:
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=104870

If I recall correctly, I was quite successful and my intended "target" fell for it (hook, line, sinker). My memory might be distorted.

There's an "obvious troll is obvious" situation on the Anandtech Off Topic forums...and I was just curious to know if I was more subtle than him.

So does some admin have an old backup archive from 2006 that might have the threads I posted in with that user?

I don't recall any thread pruning, so the threads should still be on this board.

Those posts are gone.

Click the profile I linked to and then click "Search user's posts."

"No suitable matches were found."

It is possible if you were trolling that a moderator removed the old threads.

IIRC anything (except polls) from the Other/Games/Site subforums got removed in late 2006.
