and if this is old news I swear I didn’t find mention of it in a search. I googled my username (and nothing else) and found a site that keeps track of us and our posting, for lack of a better explanation. Didn’t show any results for the SDMB, it seems to be a data gathering service. Needless to say it’s full of ads for things referenced in the thread. I just found it odd.
Again, if this is something everyone figured out and talked about when I wasn’t looking, I apologize.
I just tried this for grins and giggles… and got lots and lots of links for diamond merchants, products surrounded by dazzling white diamonds, etc. I didn’t see a link for a site such as you described - even though I only looked through a few pages.
I’m not complaining, mind you. Not at all. Kinda happy about it.
It rhymes with bored reeder.com. Did you do a boolean search, with the quotes around your username?
Yep, brought me to a thread about support for the war in Iraq, posted in early sept.
Yes’m, I sure did - used quotes and everything. Just lots of links for diamond jewelry and the like. Again, no complaints.
I remember reading about that site here on the board a few years back (now that you’ve jostled a few things loose in this rusty bucket of a brain). I think that was back before we had paid membership.
Huh. There are other rigbys out there–spelled just the same, but none of them are me. Not sure if I feel reassured or let down.
Boardreader is a forum search engine. I don’t think they’re up to anything nefarious, and it’s not very useful for its intended purpose anyhow.
I appreciate that right near the top of Luke Wilson’s page is the fact that he has a similar chin to me.
(Edit: And once it crawls this place again I’ll be at the very top! I seem to get a strange pleasure from meta-manipulating them. Hee hee.)
Woah that’s weird/creepy almost. Even lists top posters for the week and post counts, text from threads.
“All** OF** ya’ll?!?!?!?!”
“All of ya’ll?!?!?!?!”
I just found a Youtube video entitled Gorillaman & Retardboy 3. Sounds brilliant, but I think they must have used up all their creative energy in the first two installments, though.
With my dopername, you can guess what comes up on google.
Whoo-HOO! According to that site, I’m the second most prolific poster over that past week, right behind What Exit?
Sorry, extra busy week for me, thanks to the #4 poster on the list.
I found this interesting, it helps with a question that comes up from time to time.
While the Dope’s audiences/membership is mostly US it is 40.5% outside the US. That is higher that I expected.

Wow, that’s pretty interesting.
Holy crap, I have my own software testing company. That and a few references to flanders fields.
I seem to recall that we actually used Boardreader at some point, like to help restore missing posts after a crash or something. Ask Tuba.
#192? We’ve got to start posting like a motherfucker to up our score!!
