Br. Max Passes the 1,000 Post Mark!
« on: January 21, 2004, 01:50:27 AM »
Did anyone notice that Br. Max has already passed the 1000-post mark?

I really don't think I'll be "Top Poster" for long at this rate.

Anyway, congratulations, Br. Max.

I enjoy your posts and am glad you are here.  ;D

Congratulations Br. Max.  Pretty soon you will have surpassed me and will be giving Linus a run for his money.  :D

NOW linus . . . you position as top poster is safe for a week or two - yet ;D

I'll tell you though - I have enjoyed most of the people here immensely.  Others well . . . . I'm sure you have not made as many  . . . um . . . "friends" as I have - especially lately . . . . ;)

David:  I may surpass you in number of posts . . . but that does not mean they have been as good as yours ;)

Very diplomatic answer Max. :p   I'm inclined not to agree though...franciscans on an orthodox board area a rare thing, and we should be inclined to listen. :)

This is my 2,000th post.

Kind of a milestone. I thought about creating a new thread to commemorate it but decided that would be too vain.

So I am posting it here in relative obscurity.

Reaching #2000 has been kind of a goal of mine the last couple of weeks.

I don't know why.

I remember when the then-top posters like Nik and Serge and Hypo all broke 1000 posts. It seemed like a big deal then.

Lots of posts is probably less significant now.

Anyway, it seems something of an honor to be the first one to reach 2000 posts at OC.net.

Now if Br. Max passes me I can take solace in this moment.

Big deal, eh?  ;)

Linus: I doubt that I will have opportunity to pass you.  I know of at least two people who would prefer that I not post here at all.

You should not let that bother you.

There are no doubt a few here now who don't like me much either, and I know there have been some here in the past who did not.

Then again, I have butted heads with people on this board whom I now consider my friends.

I will probably butt heads with most everybody now and then.

Could it be that I am just a butt head?

Don't answer that!  ;D

Linus: I would never call you that.  I would be far more imaginative and colorful ;D

And no doubt I would deserve it.  ;D

Linus: we all deserve much more than a few colorful and imaginative names.  Thank God for His mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.
