300,000 Posts!

PostBy: Richard S. On: Sat Aug 18, 2012 11:36 am

The number listed on the bottom is not quite 300K yet but that doesn't include all posts like those that were made in the classifieds and purged, other that were deleted and an unfortunate incident where some dumb ass deleted a few thousand of them. I won't name the idiot. :oops:

The only way I can do this without giving myself a migraine is to simply to go by the post ID, and <DRUM ROLL> Congratulations Grumpy you are the winner, your prize is a swift kick in the ass.

That's the actual link to the post itself, note the #p300000 on the end. It was made on Fri Jul 06, 2012 9:42 pm. I completely forgot about keeping track of it.

This forum has come a long way since I first discovered it. The number of annual posts probably correlates very well with the price of fuel.

I'll second this sentiment as well. I'd still be struggling with heating my home if it weren't for this site. Also congratulations to Grumpy for hitting 300k.
