Big Round Number Alert
« on: December 21, 2015, 09:47:53 PM »
1 year and 2000 posts for Brilligtove

I just noticed my profile changed. It turns out that I joined this community just over a year ago, with a post about evidence-based management on Dec 7, 2014. As of this topic I've now posted here 2002 times. Number 2000 could have been a snark or sargasmic joke, but I was lucky: I attempted to say something inelligent with the big round number. :)

It feels like I've been here a lot longer than a year. You people have become friends and companions, confidants and supporters, and the best kind of opponents - the kind who make you strong by challenging and provoking you. The last 12 months have been quite a roller coaster for me and my family, what with the Surprise Cellular Rebellion in my throat and the Day of the Short Knives. You were there for the seven weeks being blasted by the Photonic Flashlight of Death with a side of Careful Poisoning by Careful Poisoners.

The people here were - are still - a big part of my intellectual and emotional health. I can't thank you enough.

Be well.

You fit in perfectly right from the start - and your eloquent, thought provoking and often just plain hilarious posts are highlights.

You certainly did pack a lot of shit into 2015 ... but it's almost 2016 and I'm hearing your energy building. 2016 will be good, I'm sure of it!

Frankly I find I don't agree with your posts a good chunk of time, but that only makes them more valuable to me.  Echo chambers are a terrible place to learn something new.

Somehow I didn't see the comments from petrolpetal and ABQ until Superdave's post.

Thanks, folks.

A while ago I crossed 4000 posts. Not sure when. I took a sabbatical from this and other social media for a while: my mental and emotional resilience has been pretty weak.
