All you old timers

EchambersEchambers Posts: 4,178 ✭✭✭✭✭
When I look at the post counts of some of you old timers in excess of 5,000 it makes me think my achievement is nothing. But, on the other hand this is my 200 post and I have not offended anyone yet (at least not that I know of) nor have I been booted from the forum. So what that most of my posts have been inconsequential and insignificant (I must confess that TWO of them were even in the "word game" thread).

Seriously, though, while I don't confess to understanding most of you and the reindeer games you play, I have really enjoyed this forums and getting to know (at least virtually) some of you. And as you all know Bigshizza is a great ambassador to this forum.

I think now I am going to pour a bit of bourbon and enjoy a Cohiba Red Dot.

    It's not all about post count it's how you respect the forums! Bigshizza is a great example and a great guy! Just give back and that's all that is needed

    Just get fired from your job. You'll smoke your stash, post 3k times, adn become a reviewer in like a month...

    Interesting post!!! Your contribution at 200 posts is just as worthy as mine at whatever it is at now. Sometimes a lot of posts are what we'll call fluff post,, joshing and bantering back and forth with another. I try to balance all that with posts that provide good info for all, as well as helping younger members and the like. Yes the forum is truly a wonderful place where we can all come together and discuss current events, sports, etc and of course cigars! Ive had some great times here and truly my intention was never to cause any disdain or discord. Have I ruffled some feathers along the way,, probably. Remember you cant please all the people all the time, so sometimes you just have to be your own man. However for all my faults I do apologize. Funny you mention Shizza, as I was just discussing some of these very things with him. Yes Jim is a great dude and he was a pleasure to meet in person. He has definitely added to the forum with his caring and giving nature, as others have, as well,, (tearing up a little). Please enjoy yourself while your here and try to help when you can, where you can. Other than that this place is a little like this. Enjoy

    I have always loved to learn and there's a heck of a lot of resources for that...very lucky to be apart of this forum and the great friends I've made on here! Just do what you can and a niche will be there for you!

    Love having you here...just stay away from the "Beef with Cohiba" thread and you'll probably keep not offending anyone, Mr. Red Dot.
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Post count isn't indicative to knowledge...I know and have seen members with post counts of unreal proportion that amounted to posting up saying things like...."Great Post- I agree- Love that cigar...etc." Some members have been smoking cigars since the 60's ( myself included ) and this hobby is all about enjoyment and passing things on or even expressing opinions which are....opinions and sometimes sprinkled with facts. At the end of the day it's only about enjoyment of what we like and not to get into little disagreements about what we do like.
