Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
I think it's held up pretty well.

It has.

But you were noticeably less bolshy back in the day.....

As, predictably, were most of us as newbies.

I think it was more of a slow evolution as my patience was worn down by the belligerent ignorance of creationists.

They do have that effect......

But there is only so much we can blame them for.

And I say that as one tencious arse to another...... But you have 10,000 posts on me so heavens knows what sort of an arse I will be should I ever make it that far.

5000 Posts -
I have just realised that I have eceeded 5,000 EvC posts.

Bloody hell!!!

I remember when I first signed up here seeing the likes of Iano, Holmes, Crashfrog and Jar with their post counts in the thousands. I remember thinking "Jeez these guys must either have too much time on their hands or be practically full-time professional debators or something".

As it turns out EvC should come with a mental health warning. It's like intellectual crack.

Crash Vs Jar - 20,000 Posts - OMG!!!
BG writes:

Shall we start betting on who's going win the race to 20,000 first?

Will it be Jar or Crashfrog?

My money is on Jar. He seems to be ever present since his return.

BG writes:

They've both had a couple of years off, as well, yet they're still leading the field even with that handicap!

I know!!!!! Two years absence and still the next closest competitor (our old sparring partner RAZD I believe) is a few thousand posts behind either of them.

BG writes:

Jar has the edge at the moment, but Crash is young and lively, and may not yet have reached his full potential. It's a close call.

Place your bets...........

No, it's Nator. And since she is back now too....

Here's the list, sorted by posts.

Well the miracle of modern technology reveals the truth in all it's indisputable glory. Nator in 3rd with RAZD a close 4th.

H writes:

What's even more amazing perhaps is that Jar joined more than a year after Crash, and two years after Nator.

Jar's prolific post rate puts him in pole position as odds on favourite to be the first to 20K posts.

I recall ferocious battles with Iano, randman, Faith...suspensions..

A sub topic of this thread could be "My first post that got me suspended"

I of course have never (yet) been suspended.

Re: First suspensions
You were suspended for that?! Cripes.

I guess things have lightened up on the suspension front since then.

*Actually, that's commendable, all things considered.

Whatever could you mean........?

This is my first and only suspension so far, I think Moose missed the point a bit, but ah well.

Well I liked your chimpostic parody. But that probably says more about me than the quality or validity of your suspension inducing effort.

Admittedly, I first typed "Actually, that's commendable, considering what an argumentative sod you are", but I changed it as I'd already called you a pussy in the post, and there are limits.

Ban him!! Ban him!!!

Where is an admin when you need one........?

I mean, aside from Dr Adequate (all hail His High Passive-Aggressiveness), aren't you one of the meanest, most sarcastic, and realistic posters on EvC?

Why Thankyou!! Frankly I am honoured to even be mentioned in the same sentance as Dr. A in this context.

Meldi writes:

I'm sure I've seen you suspended a few times.

Nope.

Not unless I missed it.

You haven't been suspended yet?

Why does everyone find that soooo hard to believe?

Oni writes:

I'm with bluegenes, pusssssyyyyy, or...maybe you're just really good at hiding the mean spirit with dem fancy college-type words.

So it would seem.

Either that or my propensity for limiting my most insulting comments to comic verse, song and rap has thus far excluded me from moderator detection.

Cuz you're a bit of a dick... in a good way, don't get me wrong.

It is better to have been a dick "in a good way" than to have never been a dick at all. This is my motto in life. It has served me well thus far.

And this post has now brought you and your lyrics to their attention. Way to go!

You are never one to be pusillanimous when it comes to dick based experiences huh?
