    A wacky title, yes, but what is one of your favorite threads on VMB of all time?

    One of mine is the Vegas Poll thread about which casino you would never go into and why. It was one of the first threads I was really engrossed in when I first joined VMB. Great initiation.

    Hooker stories.

    And I was a little surprised to see it has been bumped recently.

    Can't beat the old sparring that used to go on between 'ken2v' and 'rushbo' over the merits of various dining establishments.

    That would be "elrushbo."

    Go to a top-end steakery, split a filet, order water, spend three hours driving the Strip from Spring Mountain to Flamingo.

    before i saw the other responses, i was thinking elrushbo. he may not have been a tow truck driver with an active imagination and a philadelphia eagle fetish, but he was every bit as opinionated.

    however, trying to fight a war of words with ken...the guy just did not have the arsenal.


    an honorable mention to the mikey adopting a working mom and her son, and getting lots of people on the board to help her out, and after she was out of her jam, pretty predictable what happened next.

    a second honorable mention to what most of us think was a farce, meeting lola? on the elevator? if someone knows what i am talking about and could find that.

    Don't even see elrushbo listed as a VMB member, and I didn't think members got deleted as there are hundreds of members who haven't posted in more than 6 years, and they still show as being members.

    Did this person change their screenname? That would be a way to not show the "elrushbo" name, but still be on the board.

    I see the username as a banned user, but it doesn't come up in the member search. But trust me, he was a member and I still have the scars.

    Ok, thanks. I was trying to look up the old thread and couldn't find his name listed.

    just do a search for "elrushbo" and all threads he posted in are there. you can find quite a few where he and ken are going at it.

    At the time, I was one of the few dissenters that did not necessarily find elrushbo to be a bad guy. If anything, he provided entertainment with his rants. There have been other far more offensive sorts that never got banned.

    that's just because all threads are automatically locked after 6 months of inactivity.
