    Goddammit

    Okay.
    So I've hit 6000 posts
    and 8 years here.
    Holy shit.

    Does no one else find it ridiculous that I have spent the last 8 years consistently coming to an internet message board?

    In reality, communication is communication. Regarding the anonymity of the internet, suspension of disbelief must be a large part of the communication process. Not only are the standard handicaps in place as all text-based communication (lack of facial expression, vocal intonation, etc.) but there's the addition of having a lack of intimate contact. Most of the people you encounter on the internet you will never meet in person. This encourages people to act in a way contrary to who they truly are.

    I would like to say that I have been pretty true this whole time. I was definitely a dumbass in my earlier days, and I still occasionally have a random dumbass moment, but on the whole I have become a fairly worthwhile individual, I feel.

    To me, this hasn't been a waste of time. Because I generally react in a manner similar to how I truly think and react, I have experienced personal growth from interacting on these boards. To me, communication with another human is communication, regardless of the medium.

    So here's 8 years. And 6000 posts full of words that chronicle my growth and development as a human being.

    Cheers.

    Cheers! I rather like the majority of your posts, and am glad you've stayed on so long.
    I post somewhat erratically, so have not been able to build any real relationships with the people on these boards. I do however, respect the majority of the people here and the ideas they postulate. It's nice to have a group of people intelligent enough to bounce ideas off of, and I'm happy to say you've been an integral force keeping these forums up and running, along with a few other posters.
    So once again, Cheers to 6000 more posts!

    Congrats on 6000! Time sure does fly doesn't it? May will mark 5 years since I joined AGN. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that I stumbled upon ZC.

    So a toast for Dechipher... to 8 years and many more!

    I don't blame ya for sticking around. As you pointed out, there are a lot of handicaps to communication over the Internet, and as a result, it can take a bit longer to really get to know people than usual. All the more incentive to hang around a place for a while.

    Personally, I wish I could remember how long I've been around, but unfortunately, I've changed usernames, and I don't think my original profile even exists anymore, so all I've got to go on is that I remember a thread about Dubbya's first inauguration.

    Congratulations sweetheart. I first met you in SE and cherish the many memories of all of the times we all spent BS'ing and hangin together.

    Thank you for being a part of that memory :)
