No big vanity here, guys (nor, perish the thought, an "opus").
I just wanted to observe the fact that I've been on this forum for 10 years today, and to thank Jim Robinson for the opportunity to vent my spleen and express whatever humorous or (hopefully) thoughtful impulses happen to drift through my transom. And when they do, it is often at the instigation and inspiration of many of you here assembled. You folks have become like an extended family to me, and yes, I truly mean that.
Thank you all for your passion, your humor and your continuing commitment to help restore the kind of America I recall so fondly as a child and a young man.
I sincerely hope that in another ten year's time, we will have taken steps toward restoring the nation we all love, and I know instinctively that all of you will have helped participate in that effort.
Congratulations newbie.... :-)
Ten years eh. That’s a lot of Maalox.
Cool. Your post reminded me that my 10-year anniversary must be close, so I looked. October 22, 2000! :)
Congrats! I celebrate my decade in a couple of weeks. There are a whole lot of us November, ‘00 folks.
We’ve been sucked into the vortex that is FReeperdom!
It is power immense, unstoppable!
There is no turning back!
Yes, ten years is a long time.
I feel sorry for the older signups, we’ll have to have post walkers for them when they post.
*nudge nudge chuckle*
Wait.. soon that’ll be us.
On second thought..
Agreed, this is a wonderful place, lots of people from different backgrounds and stages in life.
I would that it could be a permanent fixture on the net, as it is a home “away.”
I just passed my 11th year last month.
I still have a bumper sticker on my truck that some FReeper sent me 10+ years ago. It says:
JOIN THE RESISTANCE
You have no idea. Between Al Gore and Barack Obama, those people at Big Pharma ought to thank me for putting their kids trough college. ;-)

KICK ASS ten years!
You’ve seen stuff and weathered storms the n00bs can’t even imagine.
Here’s to ten more. AMAGH!
Present! November 24, 2000! Thanks Jim Robinson!
Congrats, and I ditto the sentiments...
32 days till my 10 year point. Lurked back to ‘98, but when I thought the dims were stealing the 2000 election I got on board the FR express.
Time does fly when you’re having fun. Especially at others’ expense. ;-)
I just wanted to observe the fact that I’ve been the more than 10th poster on this thread for all these years.
