How did the EasyList Forum start?

Post by gotitbro » Fri Dec 22, 2017 9:21 pm

While the history of EasyList itself is well documented (https://easylist.to/pages/about.html) not much is known about the beginnings of the EasyList Forum.

From what can be seen lanik.us has been the EasyList Forum from the beginning. And @Lanik has been managing and hosting it ever since.

Several questions arise regarding the history of the forums. Why didn't rick752 host his own forum at the time? lanik helping manage the forum would mean that he was already part of the Adblock community before EasyList. Also what does "lanik" even mean? :-?

Maybe @Lanik can answer these questions.

It has no relation to this forum or AdBlock.

What you see above is about as much as I'm going to discuss about it. Some history shouldn't be drugged up.
