Thank Ya´, Thank Yá . :::shakes hands::: :::kisses baby:::
Actually to me it is a big deal because I never thought I would see it. When I see some of these posters with thousands of posts, I wonder how they can manage to have lives and jobs and still post that often, though, I realize some are handicapped and this a certain form of social activity, but others?
I actually print out the funniest threads and read them on the bus, sort of like lurking I guess, I rarely post to a thread that I have printed out, mostly because the bus has no computers.
Crongrats to you guys as well, HEY, lets start our *own * clique. Then we can start it all over again when we reach 1000? Waddia say?
Smashed, you’re almost in. Post back and say thanks and you’ll be one step closer. C’mon, you can do this. Don’t melt at the finish line, man (or woman. )*
Slick (who’s a little bit of an overachiever for this club ;)), I agree, it’s quite cool. When I said, “we’ve got the logo”, I was actually referring to the ASCII knight above. Sorry, I didn’t make that clear.
WooHooo, Zap! Welcome to the club. Here’s your shield. pondering the issue of ice cream gender identity
Works for me, we could be like a bunch of semi elitist snobs, always respond to people with under 500 posts in a sort of condescending way. There there you puny user with less then 599, you will understand someday. And if some interloper with more than 500 comes along, we just answer as if they are so old now they just dont understand the way we of the newer generation act.

Way to go * d00d (?) * Yer IN, cut and paste the official card above, change it so that it is appropriate to you, laminate it and carry it around with you, ya never know when you will need it. It helps when your opinion is getting snuffed over in GD, just flash that puppy and everyone will instantly agree with any opinion you have, (Cecil has a copy you know) also when making dinner reservations refer to our clique, you will always get the best table in the house - and its also good to flash to the cops in order to get out of speeding tickets.

HEY! Who let ** SlickRoenick ** in here? Oh, its OK I guess, you just don’t know how
we of the younger generation do things.
(Seriously: No, I did not, I don’t know who did or I would give credit. I have a ridiculously huge collection of ASCII art that I have been collection since my BBS days along with assorted applications for making ASCII art. Perhaps we could open an ASCII art appreciation thread.)
Thinking about the relationship between post count and length of time on the boards BTW, the all time champion of the lurk has got to go to this guy who has been registered since August 1999 but has only posted 124 times. What a weenie.
While he often has something to say, *he has **never *started a thread.
(at least that I can find) We all know him, Cecil Adams. So by my reckoning he is not allowed in our club! I will draft an e-mail right away, revoking his club card. An NO this is not a cheap attempt to get him to come out of the library closet, just an observation I have made regarding the merits of social participation. I here by proclaim myself and our clique members cooler than Cecil, ‘cos we **participate **! We ** contribute **!
We have ** nothing better to do **!
(Ya Think the smiley will save me from his wrath?)
