Sh33p's Fluff Message Board

SFMB logo

The Sh33p's Fluff Message Board, also known as SFMB, is a gathering place for Daria fans.

History

The Sh33p's Fluff Message Board was created by Thea Zara, with the help of Gamer, on 5th October 2003. According to Thea Zara, the conversation went like this:

 Gamer: so uh you wanna message board while i'm moving us and everything? 
 thea: uuuh  i guess so

Conceived of as an alternative message board for people who wanted a forum with a different ethos to that of the Paperpusher's Message Board, the name was created and agreed on in an SFMB2 chat between Thea Zara, Ben Yee, Gamer, Reese Kaine, Wyvern, Brandon League, srdarkwing, and Deref.

One, but not the only, driver was the ability to discuss adult topics. Another driver was to provide a home for what was a growing band of younger Daria fans, several having come to the show via the Noggin Network, a heavily (and many felt ridiculously) censored re-broadcast. Some of the denizens of the Paperpusher's board were becoming increasingly annoyed by what they felt was juvenilia posted by the enthusiastic young fans. Wanting to encourage them, Thea Zara gave them a place of their own - Tanandaria, a.k.a. "The Cave" - on the Sh33p's Fluff, while protecting them from adult topics by making the adult forums accessible by invitation only.

Now nearly completely overrun by spam-bots advertising usually either kitchen appliances or porn.
