I think it happened right here. Not sure who coined it (not me). Back then it was just the modeling forum, and we only had a hundred or so members.Thanks for that info! Do you know what discussion boards that came from? Or who might have coined it?
If it wasn't here this is the first place I came across it. There weren't as many modeling sites back then. Here and StarshipModeler, were the 2 main places I frequented.
