Pyoority Test
Josh 201604 KWP
OK, so this came up in conversation with a friend today.

Who here has not heard of the purity test?
Who has not taken the purity test?
If you have taken it, which version(s) and which do you prefer?
(I always thought the 500q was a nice compromise and pretty realistic.)

Did anyone ever see the "Sexual Harrassment Consent Form"
(I know I made one in the late 80s, early 90s, but I found one on a BBS file list from 1976)?

All of the other, tangental questions I have seem to actually be part of or fit in with mikilou's impending post.

Oh, I took that thing so so so so long ago. What was the name of that website that started it? Fark.com? (forgive my memory if that is the stupidest guess ever...)

Fark might have made it popular, but fark didn't start a purity test. They're a news portal.

Oh, then it definitely wasn't fark. I forget now. I've slept since then. ;-)

Sleep is NOT an excuse for not knowing your internet history!

I should be an internet historian. There's very little I've seen.

Well, except this purity test.

Oh god.

I just went back and re-read what I said. That was bad. There's very little I've seen?

"The website that started it?"
ACK, no.

Some of them date back to the 70s, which, in the public sector, would have been BBSes only.

The 500 pointer was from 1988 (revisions) and passed around BBSes as PURITY500.txt.
You could have found it on FTP or gohper, or gatekeeper.DEC.com ftp-mail server, but I got mine off of BBSes.

HTTP/HTML "launched" in 1991.

(I used to have "The Internet Yellowpages" and it was less than 2 inches thick. The second year it was about 4. After that, Yahoo took over and no more printed books.)

Fark seems to have begun on or about August 9, 2000.

I know, I know, I was wrong! SHEESH! :-P


I had a printed, bound directory book too. I got it in '93 tho, so it was a bit thicker.

Don't worry, I'm old sk00l too. I just got a bad memory. ;-) That or I was busy dl'ing pr0n for 10 years!

You a crayfish lover? Women don't like prawn. *swoon*

or something like that.

OK, not really. And yes, you are a dork. So am I. This is why we get along so well. \m/

I'm 972, 214, AND 469!

But I buh-member dem BBS days. Goddamn, those were GOOD times.

We're all dorks here, it's okay. I promise. We can imbrace our inner geekdom and let it all hang out.

*sings* "The Internet is for porn!"
