Universal Roughfish.com Forum Access View

This goes back to 2008 or earlier. This display is a way for people to get at the old forum posts from the previous, fireboard-based web forums for roughfish.com. I can't guarantee things are displayed correctly, but they seem to be (mostly) readable. If I get time, I'll do some more database kung-fu to get the old posts attached correctly to the new forums and fix the weird display issues that resulted from data migration. In the meantime, feel free to delve into the strange and sometimes disturbing past of roughfish.com!
