I was posting on forums (referred to as "bulletin boards" back then) in 1988, actually. When modems were 150Kb, and I'd use my computer to make phone calls even back then.
Everything was in text mode. I still prefer text mode over anything. Really can't stand all the bells and whistles.
It's been a while, but I believe I posted on The Enquirer's bulletin boards back in 1991. I'm sure that 10-15% of the posters here were doing that then, too.
