Hell, yes, I'm a proud member of the TMBSMIYLF. My stats say since 2001 but in reality it is since 1997. I'm nearing 5 star status

If the number of posts is a measure of how much is missing in our lives, then SoS, Rete, and I are running neck and neck, but the gap in our lives can be nothing compared to the cavernous voids that you and JG appear to be suffering from.

The only thing missing in my life is you. I just can't ever get enough Pulaski in my life.

Considering how little I have to do in a day, and how many hours I spend online (10-12 hours per day) I appear not to post all that much compared to some of you busier folk....

Me too. I've been on here since 2003 and am still less than 17,000!

Mind you, it's probably because I can't post when I'm at work.

That does help, as do my weird shifts


Plus being a Mod....I must have hundreds of posts that are just telling people they are about to be banned, or to stop trying to get round the sweary filter

But we all start somewhere, and (cliche time) oak trees from little acorns grow Hang in there, your post count is growing steadily
Back when I started posting it was a huge milestone to hit 1000 posts, and we used to post bouncing kangaroos for Aus forum posters that hit those dizzy heights

Yeah, I mean, I enjoy having a laugh with, occasionally a bit of an argument with and generally a bit of fun shitposting with a group of people online, many of whom I'd consider to be mates but **** me, right?
I am a member of the generation that made plans and was forced to keep to them. And then years later waited a half an hour for a computer game to load up from a tape recorder so my son could play on an amstrad computer.

I could never imagine calling people friends if I had never met them. Get out their and live.

I have a life , a very busy life but being part of this site often is a life saver. We are great at helping each other out on here, that's a plus to many of us. If it's words of encouragement, shared experiences or real help when one of us needs it you can guarantee someone will jump in.

I believe that is friendship

Heck, I'm the generation before computers were anything but an entire floor of a mainframe.

I met my husband online and we are married 18 years and many of our internet friends came to New York for our wedding from such places as California, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Thunder Bay Canada, Halifax Canada, Massachusetts.

You can have a life online and it can be as real as meeting your next door neighbor. Perhaps you need a better imagination
