    Where did you find this Pike ? I searched around old Final Fantasy forums and only found posts from 2002- 2001 being the oldest and FFVIII was considered to be the worst- and I don't think that's changed much.

    If you go to tumblr where the average age is like 17, there is a full blown fandom obsessed with FFXV. Writing fanfiction, drawing fanart, the whole works.

    Not surprised. Cute boys & Yaoi bait. They don't call it Yaoi anymore- but it's still Tumblr obsessing over Gay Ships. It's the same thing.

    Hey now some of us on tumblr are obsessed with yuri. And in my case I have a valid excuse because I am in fact a raging gay.

    For usenet posts you have to go further back than forums. Try Google Groups.

    You can find a lot on ezBoard if you spend enough time trying to find 'em.

    What!? What the actual crap is the point of archive.org if it's going to delete things? I am so annoyed by this development. It even lists the pages as archived still when you search for http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://...bthehighwind.*

    Weird!

    I heard that you can ask for the website to delete things that you don't want other people looking up, maybe somebody did that ??
