The Curious Case of ColinB

Wed May 01, 2013 6:17 am

Where have all of his posts gone? He was on around the 35,000 mark 5 years ago and is now down to 29,000. Is Brad Pitt posting on his behalf in reverse? :wink:

LOL !

I know a lot of my threads/posts get deleted [Where's Carolyn ? being the most recent] but I hadn't realised it was so many !

And what chance does this thread have ?

I'll give it a few hours................

You guys can have my post count if you want them. This thread is safe. Nobody's posts will get deleted once I've posted here.

I have no problem whoopin' up on a moderator.

Is that a euphamism?

Call it what you want to, but I dare 'em.

No, I double-dog dare 'em!

I've been unthanked 9 times too!

Do people keep a mental record of their approximate post number and "been thanked" tallies? :shock:

If they do, then they need to see a shrink. It's not the quantity.....it's the quality of the posts that count for me. Thanked or Unthanked.

We have some who actually celebrate post counts.

Looks great on a resume and an epitaph.

No, but I just happened to notice the thanks yesterday for some reason. And I also know the difference between 1500 and 5000 posts. Even I know my case of verbal diarrhea has produced more than 1500 posts in 4 years!

That's apparently what one does when offering little else of substance. ;-)

It's easier to lose posts on FECC than to lose weight

Perhaps FECC have missed a trick there?

I actually think it's a variation on Stephen King's Thinner. Instead of having your account deleted, it is eroded slowly over time so that hardly notice it at first. Then it gets less and less until you're gone!

Did you get my post about the deletion of your post that thanked you about Colinb's post that was deleted regarding a quite sensible post that ColinB made about another post that was probably fictional in the first place? All we're looking for is clarity.

Thanks
