I love stuff like this, especially when I'm not the one posting it tongue

I resent the inclusion of Smugley. Partially because I don't think my trolls should count, partially because then you'd have to count all of them. And credit all the Fletcher and Smugley-based things for Ethan as well.

I feel like at the beginning of Gen 3 he and I were racing to claim the top spot but never acknowledged we were competing.

I find his disappearance less odd, because he was sitting near the top of the Gen 2 board when I started posting and yet he was in the middle of a long hiatus at that time.

Can confirm, it takes a lot of work to post regularly as a troll.

The biggest omission I see is you didn't account for how Peter G. and a2lert were the same poster. I thought he posted in Gen 1 but it looks like it was just 2 and 3. I count 2266 as a2ert, 763 for Peter G. in gen 2 (He'd have been 9th overall that time if he kept one name!), and 903 in Gen 3, which would total 3932 posts. Not quite into the top 20, but probably in your runners up.
