People respecting each other in spite of conflicting opinions.

People engaging in conversation instead of repeating themselves.

People making reasonable argument rather than stating opinion without reasoning.

Interesting threads, friendly conversation.

I dunno I'd say OR's been pretty consistent with his "no fun" rule.

Zabba2 versus englishGAMER
Choclate-Milk versus englishGAMER
Everyone versus englishGAMER

Quality threads that clearly had a lot of time and thought put into them, such as Highlight's 'Today I'm playing' - which was a more interesting take on the standard "HEEEEY UTUBE SUBSCRIBERZ TODAY WE TALK ABOUT MY TAHP TEN GAYUMZ". Or how about Zabba2's 'Did you know?' thread in Pokemon - which to this day probably remains the most exhaustive collection of interesting trivia I've ever read. Or at least it would if it still existed

The occasional downright outrageous post, like the novel suggestion that OP could avoid the embarrassment of getting an erection in the school showers by "hiding it in another guy's ass!" (sadly I can't remember who the posters were)
I don't think any post on this thread has ever made me spit milk all over my monitor but that one might have done it

While I'm at it, things I don't miss: kingconnor and cheesemonster. They weren't entertaining or clever, nor did their controversial views even serve as a conduit for any kind of constructive conversation. They were both just incredibly unpleasant people

Edit: other fun distractions I missed were the small forum game-like photoshop/art challenges. Things like the Prince Charles thread, "What's he aiming at?" (before it got locked), the ONM high street, (anyone got the original complete one?)

I wish these members would return. English Gamer, Cheesemonstor, Cocacola, Supershyguy :D . You have to admit, they bought a lot of entertainment to the forums.

Also, are these members still active?:

Numbers
Fabong Le Tang
Snake
LightSamus
Cribster
DJ

People debating things (such as abortion) with x50 50x and then him locking the threads saying the conversation went on too long when he couldn't win

That catscan downloading Sarah James' photos then putting them on his own photo bucket

None of that happened on ONM, in any of its iterations
