Hey! I just noticed I broke 40,000 posts! Hell, it only took me sixteen years.

I still marvel that there are DU-ers with over 100,000 posts. I don't know how they do it...

30. Oh, I certainly don't blame you, I feel the same way

Whenever I hear the words "the president," I perk right up - and then I remember. I've often thought that as upsetting this is for us, what must President Obama must think and feel when he sees the horrendous mess Trump's making - most of it aimed at his accomplishments? The fact that he's started speaking out now gives me a little hope. He's definitely the smartest guy in any room - all Trump does is lie and cheat.

3. Congratulations, my dear Aristus!!

Here's to many, many MORE!

How did I do it? Well..........back when I was a n00b, I was here a lot of the day........and I spent a lot of time posting! Remember, when I joined, there was no Facebook or Discussionist or anything but DU.

That's how I did it.

Congrats again, dear old friend!

29. I'm barely beyond 10,000 after joining in 2002

I don't like to argue back and forth in a thread anymore. Nobody changes their mind and it merely creates tension. But my post rate really dropped as a result.

16. Wow!!!!

I can't believe you remember!!

I got banned (Tombstoned! 😁 ) cuz at that time, women who gave the lousy frat boy misogynists back what they gave got banned. My human overpopulation comments may have also helped--they didn't go over well back then either! 😆

17. I remember a lot of the long-gone DU-ers. I was good friends with many of them.

I'm glad you're back with us, at least. You've been BlancheSplanchnik for quite a while now.

18. Yes, I made a sock puppet so I could get back on.

Blanche has been doing ok! 😆 I felt dishonest doing it, but I also felt I had been pizza-ed unfairly! My, things have changed.


I remember some of those wonderful people too. ❤️ Nostamj, remember him?

I miss the old DU-ers. I'll never forget, in the wake of sElection 2000, finding my safe haven here in March of 2001. I've never been away longer than a week ever since...

That has been here as long as me 9 years (I've been here a little bit longer) and I only have 25,000 and I post a lot too.
