It's been a pleasure being the longest registered user,

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
but now I have requested my account be revoked.

Hey Kormac...love you man!

It's time for me to leave this message board.

And, I was just a few days short of FIVE FULL YEARS!!!!! HERE!!!

Wow. That's an anniversary! (In my mind only it appears)

God Bless each and every one of you and good luck in your endeavors!

A cry for attention? Why would you revoke membership? Why would you want us to know this? Just because an admin tapped you on the fingers?

sweet, longest registered title is up for grabs again!

I second that. Come on, JRC, get real. We've ALL be reprimanded or had a thread locked or moved at least once in our tenure here. You've just got to shrug it off, say a demeaning curse word in your internal monologue toward the mod or admin in question, and then forget about it.

Chill, bro.

5 years, post count less than most of the people here.

Maybe that's why people aren't missin ya, man
post #11 of 51
At first I thought maybe he had decided to just up and leave, having had his fill of AI goodness. Maybe there are ulterior motives at play however. If it's because of a thread lock, man, that's the sign that you're at least somewhat engaged in the discussion around here. I'd be more disappointed if I had been around five years and never had a thread locked. One a year even...



No BFD IMO.

getting a thread locked is no big deal.

the big deal comes from this hissy fit you throw after the fact. (in theory)

then it becomes a little tougher to show your face around AI.

post #13 of 51
Could someone explain what events led JRC to this decision? It seems strange to actually announce your departure. Like you want to rub it in!!

So did you guys revoke his account as requested or what?

Do I get to see a big, bright red REVOKED under his name when I read this post?

If he's not coming back then why's he asked for his account to be revoked? That's just stupid
post #16 of 51
He'll be back... nobody ever seems to be able to actually leave this place for good. He'll most likely register a new account and pretend his old one never existed. Or his testicles will descend, he'll suck it up, and just start posting again.

Just peeked in to find this post so I can say FIVE YEARS since Nov 98 as the first registered and non-participatory user.

(Surprised the account still worked.)

I would just like to take this opportunity to officially announce that I am a participatory member and further to clarify that I have been a member for one year and five days.

I will be providing further updates on this. For example, as of tomorrow I will likely still be a member, but the numerical record of the amount of time that I have so been will have to be increased by one day.

Stay tuned.

It's not the length, it's how you use it.

JRC always bragged about the fact that he had the oldest membership, (sometime in 1998 ) and I always responded (whenever I'd see his post) that I was the SECOND oldest member here...first registered in January 1999.

So.

That makes me the oldest member....if it really mattered. Do I get special AI diapers to keep me from pooping in my pants? Maybe I can post in threads for a senior discount....that would be nice.

Too bad that JRC has decided to leave, it was always easier being number two.

Will I ever leave in a huff? Wouldn't give any of you weasels the pleasure.

All my love,

I really like the way that JRC came back to tell us that he was still gone. I can only assume that the humour was intentional.

And what about _ alliance _?

No...No one can break the eternal lock...

Back in my days at the old AI we used to dial into the internet manually by making screeching noises into the telephone. The server was kept in a shoebox full of 5.25" floppy disks and only worked on alternate Thursdays. Apple had just invented something called the iMac and had a new CEO.

Man, them were the days.
