Not at all.
That *is * the point. It is pointless. It is meaningless. I opened My 500th post, Woooo Hooooo! for example, to specifically poke fun at what I have noticed over the years here as something along the lines of “poster envy”. I have seen **Handy ** get railed because he had * to many posts *, I saw M’uadib (sp) get dragged over the coals once and specific reference was made to his low post count. (no cite - was some time ago). There are others who have achieved SDMB stardom through what I see as being a combination of wit, charisma and a high post count. I often wonder if they would be so well known if it were through wit and charisma alone. There have been several threads on this subject as well. Its fun to watch.
So I’m happy to have survived this long (years not posts), I was dragged into the pit once a couple of years ago, but other then that I think I have made a worth wile contribution to the boards, and so have LOTS of others with lesser count then I (take Cecil for example). So, feeling goofy about this (far) less than significant event, I thought I would have some fun, post rain bows, ASCII art, insult Cecil, start a Faux click - weeee! Exactly what this board is NOT all about. That’s my excuse anyway. Trust me, in 3 years when I hit 1000, I’m going to do it all over again! BTW, how did * you * manage to get in so many posts in just 5 months. Wow - 1554, that’s like 9 posts a day. * you * are obviously a * god. *
Will you be my friend?
