Note: While notorious spammers can banned in the PCKF, InsideTheWeb didn't even have such a feature. You can see the consequences (nonsense, ads, insults) on some of the following pages. This was one of the main reasons for the move. And things were just not as organised as in the later Keen forums. I excluded a few snapshots due to the abundance of spam by a certain user (who received many complaints by other users for his behaviour).

2001 Archive

Download keenboards-snortimer.zip, a collection of various messages and images from different Keen boards on InsideTheWeb. Snortimer saved them just before the service's shutdown in March 2001. In April 2011, he made his archive available to the community. One day I will integrate the pages into the PCKF Archive so that they are browsable.

This table includes (almost) everything I found in the Wayback Machine. Please note that the links found on the various pages don't work or lead to empty pages in many cases. But users often wrote the entire message in the subject. Snortimer's archive is not included yet.
