Apparently from "JUstus League" which some earlier form of this board was named? I wasn't around here (or there) then.

(maybe JustUs League? Does it matter?)

i tend to think of it as JustUs League, as it was originally a close circle of users split off from acmlmboard(2?) before it opened up a bit, though i've seen some of the original peeps say JUstus League, so :shrug:

(i mean why misspell justice into a pun and then ignore the pun for the abbreviation)

2tie is correct:



It was "Justus League 2", a sequel to a spinoff forum for a small group of people. When the split with Acmlm's Board 2 occurred, I opened it up to the public, so the name wasn't really appropriate.


(It also has a bit of backported sentimental value, as "Jul" = July, which is both the month this forum started but also the month I registered in this community the first time, back in 2001.)

adding to this old thread to say that now i understand where the name comes from


also Jul always reminds me of "juug" which basically means to make money off doing illegal shit by way of scheming and tricking people

Young Scooter talks about juugin alot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8a7yVfeBnOg
