I know this is extremely random, but I think it's a decent accomplishment to have been active on this site (although not constantly/consistently) for 4 years.

ALL OF YOU SHOULD BOW TO ME AS YOUR SUPERIOR!!!!!!

hats off to all who have been a part of this site for four years, a feat that shows how contrary to public opinion, many people choose to stay on this site and not leave it...

Nice. I'm coming close to my six month anniversary, but the four years is impressive, congrats.

How is it you've been here four years but have less than 1000 posts? I see some members who joined mere months ago and have more.

The forums only opened around two years ago (give or take a few months). By then, some of the founding members, like Johnicle, were more sporadic in site visitation. Prior to the forums here, we set up forums off-site. Good times.

I once got interested in a site that had a daily trivia quiz, and members made up quizzes. I lost interest fairly quickly and didn't look at the site for something like five years. I logged in not too long ago to discover that my longevity had elevated me to some gold star category. This proves hard work isn't everything.

My first debate here was 9/15/2008. 3 yrs.

I rarely post. When I originally came here it was merely a debate site and when the forums went up my desire to use them wasn't particularly high.

My activity has gone down here and there, but I've always sort of been around to witness the drama (lol)

Thanks. You have always been one of my favorites around here as well. Nice to see a least a couple of the old guard still running around here!

Oxford Dictionary defines "spamming" as:

1) Irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the Internet to a large number of recipients.

Clearly this is not the case, as I am tipping my hat to a member who has hit 4 years on the site after he tipped his hat to his fellow members who hit that mark before himself. It's relevant to the topic and is not a message sent to a large number of recipients, only imabench.

2) Unwanted or intrusive advertising on the Internet:

Obviously this isn't the case since I am not advertising anything.

3) A canned meat product made mainly from ham.

Hmmm... this might be applicable to the situation here. If so, I fully accept my punishment from Airmax.
