I was calling them back then, I was trying to not be BORED my whole life. One of the things I knew was trying to discuss the... pretty much same thing.
One guy was like, they already have 'information', theoretically real info or whatever. I probably coined the "macker" term or whatnot back then. It's really a foggy memory but I remember some of it.
I was pretty much in my mind a TextNow guy back then. Used to try finding friends.
