Thanks REWahoo. It was great to see haha and Brewer's posts in the first thread! I've only been around a couple of years, but sure do appreciate this place. You all have helped me with so many things and are a super bunch of people! I'd like to extend a big thanks to the long time posters, mods, administrators and everyone else who make this amazing site what it is.

What a strange group. Probably why I've been coming here so often for so long. I'll bring the noise makers to the bash.

Yup. Although my MF REHP handle is an old one I no longer use. I used it here for a while, left for a while, and then rejoined under this nom du plume.

When someone asks us who our FA is, we say, e-r.org. We would not be ER'd today without this board--from running numbers for a couple of years on Firecalc to reading real people's (well, Internet real, anyway ) experiences to It's Funny Joke Tuesday!, what a great site with all personalities and perspectives represented.

And I believe there are lots of unmoderated websites out there--most of them have a hard time keeping their membership, but they're out there for those who enjoy that.

And hey, don't forget you were also a moderator, FD. Lighten up, dude.

Just checked and I started in July 2003, and retired March 08,seems like a long time ago. I remember MF and migrated here for sanity, humor and good advice. This is the longest I have seen a non commercial site flourish. Only other place I go for good advice is The Economist magazine, had a subscription for that for 30+ years.
What a wonderful site, realy come to appreciate the regulars here, even got to meet T-Al on one of his adventures.
Now, if my ER fizzles, who do I blame?

This forum has been a great teaching tool for me. Primarily in the financial posts. Mercifully I missed the great ***** pontifications, though I did find some in Google searches on RE.

Thanks to all financial wizards. On other topics I'm as capable spewing drivel as anyone.
