    Is a feature that, believe it or not, I have only in the last week or so come to fully appreciate.

    It's a fascinating glimpse into the olden days of DailyKos.

    Especially striking to me, only having been here since 2009, is reading the early posts, like tonight's, for example.

    What a long way this site has come. I can't even imagine what it was like posting on the early versions of the site. lol.

    The comments are especially interesting,  and even more so when you read those from members still active here currently. It sure seems like things were a lot more relaxed in terms of discussion back then. (Nowadays, it seems in comparison, you have to watch every single word you type, for fear of someone HRing you for something).

    So if you usually skip over that link so dutifully included each night, I recommend taking a peak, if you're so inclined.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. ~ J. Garcia
