I imagine the yellow smiling face starts off by saying, "hey, I think 4% withdrawals are too much, what about 100% tips, lets start a great SWR debate!"

Re: Somebody's had extra time on their hands...

Snork...so what you're saying is I'm standing behind you instead of the other way around? If forced to choose one or the other, I guess thats better.

Quality vs quantity, its tough to keep pace with someone who replies 5-7 times in series with rambling thoughts when you actually read the whole thread and give a more comprehensive single reply, my dog ate my homework, car broke down, alarm clock didnt go off, yada yada yada...

I actually tried that spontaneous multiple reply thing. It didnt work out. Had to keep going back and editing my earlier posts as I finished reading what everyone else wrote only to discover I was repeating what other people said or that I didnt fully comprehend what the OP was looking for/saying as they had later clarifications.

Some people might not be interested in that though, as they just wanna hear themselves talk

(I keeed....I keeeed...JG's post count is amazing...for meee to pooop on!)

Re: Somebody's had extra time on their hands...

Hey I like that!

I've actually seen a couple of boards stop doing the post count thing...on one of them three guys were hell bent on being "#1" (for what thats worth). One dropped out when the other two went past 18,000 posts in a five month period. Most of them one or two word out of context posts and jabs at each other...the place was starting to get almost unreadable...

Zing! Moghopper!

I think we should have a Nirvana like point with posts, where beyond that number (say 5000?) it just says, "enough" or "beyond the horizon of mortal comprehension".

BTW BWMWJ, I want a cool interactive icon under my avatar, too!
