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.
I’ve been on 10 years this past October, but really longer, because I had another screen name, but it either got lost when I switched computers, or when the software here changed, but oh well.
This is THE BEST site on the entire interweb. Best.
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.
QUITE SO . . . in a list of ways.
Congrats from one of the Freeper class of 1998
I hang out for the humor usually.
Though I am told my coffee is an offense against nature.
I could live without oxygen easier than living without FR.
I could hold my breath.
Every month is a milestone to you noobs! ;O)
Made me Look...October 29, 2000. I lurked before the events of that time compelled me to join.
I agree wholeheartedly - this is the best site for a host of reasons. I’ve met some terrific people on line at FR, as well as in person here in the great state of New Hampshire. I’m adding a little “ping” for their benefit, because they are a large part of the reason I’ve chosen to hang out here for the past ten years.
No apologies needed for observing the 10 year point.
Yeah, well . . . Navy guys can pound nails with Navy coffee . . . wellllllllll . . . almost.
Fred, Barney, and friends have a thing or to to say about that...
And proud of it. We know you are all damned glad to know us too...
Hummmmmm. Ten years. You know I had my 12th anniv. back in Oct. I don’t recall the date, I just know it was in Oct. However, I failed to even remember my anniv. month. I’ve been here so long, I’m practically Jim Rob’s grandmother.
Congratulations. I’m glad to have made your acquaintance and FReeped with you. I’m only half way there myself but I was hanging around before that.
OhOhOh....Darks! Haven’t seen you in a spell. How’s the rock in the yard?
If one valium is good, 2 is better :O)
Lots of water under the bridge. Lets hope for some hope with a change.....Congratulations...
Been here 10 years and don’t know what IB4Z means, but I will take it as a compliment. The same to you and yours.
Hi fellow 98ers. FR is my homepage too. My family thinks I’m nuts. Nope, not nuts, addicted. Maybe we need a 12 step program.
Me too. December will be 12 years!
10 YEARS - YIKES!!!
You know, speaking of learning so much here, it’s a two-edged sword. Being so well informed adds to the frustration, because you end up talking to so many people who are clueless. That in turn adds to the compulsion to be here all the time in order to have informed people with whom to converse.
12 1/2 years here!
LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
right way right
Since Oct 7, 2000
From my account page......
You’ve posted a total of 1 thread and 2,485 replies.
Pretty much a two cents type of poster I am!
Man, can’t believe all the newbies around here!
12 years here. Class of Nov 98. Lurked for about eight months afer hearing about FR...perhaps at Drudge?
LOL. Yeah, I had to check my own name to get that date. Thanks. I should remember it, but I’m getting so old I have enough problem remembering if I was going up the steps or down them.
you got me wondering about myself: You’ve posted a total of 1,181 threads and 24,031 replies. since 6-3-98
No kidding...it's like a nursery school... :-)
Wizard, I have wondered for ages where you find that kind of information. Problem is, I’m afraid to look at how many times I’ve replied. I know I’ve posted very little. Usually see no need to because other Freepers are on top of things.
I don’t usually come out of ‘retirement’ to post anything, but in this case, I’ll make an exception. You’re a winner.
Under a different screen name, I beat you by six days; but ten years is a newbie.
You joined on the day of the MFJ. I was there.
Congrats! I am just a couple of weeks past 12 years at FR.
Twelve for me too.
Just wanted to remind you to post a vanity thread for yourself this week since you’re at your ten year anniversary with FR.
Got my 12 year chip.
Class of 97 here.
I’ll be 10 in 2 1/2 months!
But was intimidated by HTML...and the whole enchilada. Finally swallowed the worm in 2000...
You guy's lead the way....!!
Thanks for that....
I will always remember the nice welcome I rec'd when I stepped up....
