Yay! I Finally Surpassed "Scott [Banned]" in Post Count

So yeah, post whore that I am... I finally surpassed this mysterious "Scott [banned]" in Post Count screen... (Click on Members List, click on Posts to sort by Post Count).



Now I feel like I have completed my journey on AppleInsider. Weird. I also am very sensitive for some reason the past few days if people disagree with me, which is somewhat, well, weird too.



It has been a good journey with all of you, though sometimes (but actually quite rarely) we did have a good go at each other, and I think most of the time I get away with murder with some of the rambling I do.



I'm starting to feel like I don't want to post just out of the sake of trying to keep up with that maniac Melgross .... I want to, I dunno, maybe start a new journey??



AppleInsider is pretty much the only thing I do on the web right now, besides email. Weird.

Maybe a bit of http://www.tuaw.com/ but seriously, that site, and Engadget, they post like 10 things in a day, most of which only 1 or 2 are really worthwhile.



Ideas? Suggestions? Help?

    Heh. What is AN? Something that existed before AppleInsider?



    Well anyways I may be involved with a Mac dealership soon-ish. Given the popularity of this site, I think I have to deprecate this account and use a less obvious username.



    By the way, this Wiki page is pretty all over the place.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_rumors_community

    Some interesting tidbits but a number of not-updated stuff.



    MacRumors.com seems to have given itself a good plug.

    It's where a cliquey group of thirty-something perpetual frat boy posters took the party after several of them got booted for certain things. If you want constant meta-discussions about computer forums or prefer a place where the main idea is to sit around and soak up each other's awesomeness, then hey, by all means. I don't like that place at all, and a lot of them don't like it here either. I call it a good split.

    Isn't the rule that when you pass Scott, you automatically get banned?8)

    If I turned on auto-post merging (in which vBulletin combines consecutive posts in a thread, within a certain time limit), I expect that he'd still have a long way to go to catch Scott.

    That is an awesome feature, you should turn that on.

    Yeah, I equivalent Sunil's post count to Barry Bonds' homerun count.



    The record is there but it just ain't the same. Nonetheless, it is still acknowledged.

    I think SDW was juicing his at-bats in his run-up to 6000.

    Yeah! That Sammy Sosa son-of-a-bitch!



    How did he become a power hittin' poster?
