I was sort of expecting to hit 500 this year but that doesn't look too likely as I'm averaging about a post a day. Many days I'll read the threads of interest and don't think I have anything useful to add to the great comments of all of you truly prolific posters. Sometimes I'll +1 a quote, but most times that seems superfluous.

I'm very happy that we have so many prolific posters who generally have something relevant and useful to say, so most days I actually learn something. Keep up the good work!

Let this post serve as an example. A dedicated poster would never allow something so insignificant get in the way.

I wonder if some of our prolific posters have established a personal KPI or quota for the number of posts they need to get in per day. Anyone want to fess up to that

Yeah, imagine if us five-figure posters had to get our material approved for relevance and useful content...

I try to post 1,000 posts per year. Give me another 20 years and I may get closer to the record...
