Where did " RASSIST " come from anyway?
God that must have been a long time ago.
giggsrox I think
The first appearance of the term "rassist" in SG dates back to 2004 and was implemented by the user gogishome.
You guys are very much welcome
Cracking detective work.
That's actually not good detective work, although it would be impossible to actually track down the real start. The next identifiable post of "rassist" is 3 year later by Dragan who is using it sarcastically as the joke had already begun. It is quite improbable that Dragan would make a post like "RASSIST!!!! " 3 years after gogishome first used it if he were making fun of gogishome.
No, someone deleted the post that spurred the mockery and the meme. Giggs Rox !! was very active in 2006. I guarantee that's where it came from.
The term was apparently firstly used in that post, not saying the mockery started there.
I too remember "rassist" starting to crack as a joke around here, and I'm even pretty sure I was involved in the first steps of the phenomenon.
But giggsrox might have been the instigator indeed, not going to argue with that.
I came in 2006 and whe it was already a thing back then.
We do need a historian to archive these things (e.g. Huntelaar).
Hahaha when did the Huntelaar thing start?
At some point there were jokes about Turks also but I wasn't that active during that time.
I honestly don't know how you guys can remember all that stuff from way back.
Turk Wars were around late 2006 or 2007 because I was just becoming prolific.
Or, it was used in one of the all-in MSN conversations with the old crew?
Possibly, but I wasn't involved. Those MSN convos were the 2001 class, and I was already a regular and therefore not involved.
Was Dragan, Kader, IceBlu, Hugo, Denis, et al. Were they 01?
I guess regardless of the year it was generally the mod team.
Someone tell Sami what MSN means or he'll think we're bullying him.
Yeah they were all 01. In 2001 the main bb started, which is why you had more active members. Before then, the FIFA forum was the main board and essentially the only one, so it took people who were around before that shift a little time to adjust to the new setup.
No need to thank me.
Hahaha that's exactly what I was thinking
Separate names with a comma.
