    Four days into THR, and the slow climb to 10,000 posts has C.R. Sam way out in front with 101, more than doubling Oleg's toatal of 46. Go Sam, go!

    And how many words does that total up to? 101 posts = 250 words? Heh.

    If my posts/day average at TFL holds here, I'll hit 10,000 posts sometime in 2006.

    I like the forum, it's speedy :)

    Quality, not quantity.

    Sam's brevity embraces both.

    Heck, I was on TFL for almost 3 years and didn't even make 500 posts. I mostly listen and only talk when needed.

    Sometimes I like to talk and sometimes I like to listen and read. Sam is a good read any day! Remember, "Brevity is the soul of wit." Sam is witty in ther extreme!

    Since Sam always signs his posts, the extra Sam doesn't qualify for the total word count.:)

    I bought some of the new Energizer E2 Lithiums a while ago...

    They work great in my digicam, and have lasted a lot longer than the old alkaline batteries.

    I was thinking, I wonder how long Sam could chug away at his postings if he were running on a set of them? :D

    He says so few words,but they are always on track and to the point. There's no wasted "fluff" .. ;)

    He takes the phrase, "Cut to the chase!", to the fullest extreme..:D

    Humm, you won't see quite as much of me. When TFL ended I did a soul searching and found:
    1) I was far far far far far far too long winded. I made all my posts much longer than they needed to be. I explained the same thing in multiple ways. Things I could have said once in one way I kept saying over and over. I wasn't nearly as concise as I could have been. I just droned on and on.
    2) I posted on threads that didn't really say anything or on threads where I didn't really have anything to say.

    Those got me both long posts and 1200 posts in one year. Well, this time I'm not going to do it.

    :D

    Isn't this where someone steps in and asks "And just HOW is this firearm related?" :D

    I was on TFL for years and averaged .4 posts a day. I was just doing some searching over there and realized that I'd actually registered 3 times! I suspect that I'll write far more than one post every two days on TFR but doubt it here on THR.

    Top posters on TFL:


    C.R.Sam 10-29-1999 13111
    Mike Irwin 04-13-2000 11852
    George Hill 10-13-1998 11596
    Art Eatman 11-13-1998 10985
    4V50 Gary 11-02-1998 10503
    Tamara 03-11-2000 9638
    dZ 05-31-1999 7509
    Dennis 11-23-1998 7171

    Well, on *ahem* other forums, I've been known to rack up some big numbers, but I've decided to slow down and pace myself.

    That, and I've decided to actually have a life outside the internet - whatever that might be! :D
