There is a stat-person in all of us wink

Dude I made the top 10! cool I'm rather pleased with that, I must say. We are well past my initial high-school heyday of 2001-2003 where I posted with the frenzy high school students are famous for, but I've never NOT had the scoreboard bookmarked, and have at least visited it every day since then I'm on the computer with a moment to spare, which is, well, most every day.

The scoreboard is barely the scoreboard without Kuhni! The lava-man!

Craig's involvement in this community was a big boost in the generation he started posting in, and continues to this day...

PT is a beast. I remember when he beat out Brendan Anderson for top poster, and Brendan had ALWAYS been the top poster since I started in 2001.

Cool company to keep smile

Not to be morbid...but like... he may have died? No one has ever known his actual identity, have they? How else could you explain it? As I recall he didn't have a dramatic personality or relationship with the board that would have resulted in him storming off or quitting...

Joti was a lot of fun, we had a good report since he was another young guy in the 2nd generation who loved media ventures scores like I did. We had this whole 'island of media ventures' bit going for a while, I forget the particulars. He was king of the *NM* posts. He was sort of tweeting on the scoreboard before it was a thing. Rarely ever wrote a paragraph.

Jens and I DUKED it out back in the day, often over Zimmer, until he realized he really liked Hans' scores after he actually listened to them. And I became much more appreciative of the Goldsmith and Williams stuff. In those days Jens had a fierce opinion, he's mellowed out since then. I haven't seen him really get into a deep dive discussion/battle for years. Not sure why is only does facebook these days.

Loyalty plays a part for me smile I also feel like I'm supporting a small business these days. Not to mention I rather like Clem and a bunch of you guys, including even the trolls wink

Some big names there...

I made a chart once of my own posting numbers per month since I started, so I totally get it wink
