My 9000th post, and a goodbye from posting.......

Hey there everyone:

As a regular poster I have had a lot of fun commiserating, arguing, agreeing, learning, pontificating, etc, on this forum. Nearly all the folks on here I like, the few I don't, you know who you are.........

Anyways, with 9000 posts, I have said my piece. I will continue as a lurker, but will not be posting. I may change my mind and come back, like CFB did, but that is doubtful.

Best luck to everyone on here, you're a bunch of great folks to be sure.......

I heard something about "invisible mode".......sounds intriguing, but I don't know how to do that.........

Peace,

FinanceDude (Scott)

Don't take this the wrong way 9,000 posts since 8/3/06 - 8.3 posts/day - yes it is time for a break.

This was me, until I cut back on posting.






Now, I look like this...

FinanceDude - good luck.

I too wonder if after turning 66 (ER age 49-65) I should throttle back/lurk/retire/find a 'regular retirement forum.'

Nah! The little voice in my head says I'm still full of it even after all these years.

FD - I mean what's the fun of lurking? - when you can possibly get someone to put you on ignore?

heh heh heh - seriously(well sorta) good luck but I hope you crack and reconsider.

Yes, I hate it when people just disappear. I understand the need for breaks but don't foreclose coming back. Frankly, I can't imagine lurking. My mouth would never stay closed for long.

FinanceDude, your insights and knowledge have been precious. Seeing your count of posts probably stunned you, but all that I have read were very valuable. Please PM me if I post a finance question that you have thoughts about.

Miss you very much, The Brat

Best wishes to one of the few remaining Badgers on the board. Maybe you'll jump back in when the urge hits you.

If you are leaving to go play golf, I understand. Hey....I'm approaching my 4,000th post. But I already play golf.......oh well. I'll keep on posting my meaningless comments.

Best of luck!
