WOW! Grats on your 1k!
You've made my stay here a much better place and I hope you push 1Mil before you even think of leaving us behind!

*Hats off to Loam*

Same here...from a fellow Class of 2004, along with ArMaP, I congratulate you and look forward to the next thousand...

Virtual Town Square, eh? I love it and may use the analogy in the future...

Wow... 1,000 threads, really??!

That's AWESOME loam.

I've often wondered why "loam"? Are you one of those yard of the month kind of guys?

Seriously though, you, sir, have been a staple here for SIX YEARS, a member who has vast knowledge, a keen insight, WONDEROUS civility, and, I for one, would like to THANK YOU for entering our multiple Town Squares.

It's funny you used "town squares" as an analog to ATS. Way back in the day, Bill, Simon, and I used to discuss the "small town becoming a city" evolution of our little web community. It never ceases to amaze me when people actually "get it".

All the best my man.

It does bring back the memories.

Amazing to see the old board, and to think that was big with about 100 members...

Thank you for the years of friendship and debate. It's true, we do reap what we sow, and the ATS community has been a harvest beyond what was ever expected.

well hey man, I just got done reading all 1000 of your threads including responses and I gotta say, you could bundle that up and sell it as a book! Or does it all belong to ats now? That would be a pretty cool coffee table book: 1000 favorite threads from various ats members. They would have to make a few volumes... Someone would buy it! Especially the people who could point and say Hey thats me! Haha . maybe not. I would just mass produce it at low quality so its cheap to make. Then you can sell it a little cheaper. Yeah people can just go look all this up and copy, paSte and print it for free, but what they are paying for is the fact that someone did all the research to find the really entertaining threads so you don`t have to waste your time. You could have one book for each catergory...

I have many...and a few I'm not so proud of...

But I believe this was my very first thread, and where Asala gave me with my first applause:

Sentinel Warning: What may the birds be telling us?

I always liked this thread:

Fluoridation: A conspiracy so old, we think it's normal

And this one always seemed pretty important to me:

A Conspiracy Against Children: Exactly who is out of control?

But there were many, many other threads where I was equally passionate and tried to provide something meaningful to the board on a particular topic.

Of course, most of my Fragile Earth threads are ones I also obviously cared about.

I make even fake plants unhappy.

Thank you, though, for your otherwise nice post.

I have been here since 2004 also, and boy the place has changed.
I come here for news now, I dont even listen to mainstream media.

Ovbiously there is a lot of nonsence on here, things that make you laugh.
But I have always been respectfull of others ways.

I think as the site has grown, the staff have grown with it.
And that is not easy.

Well done everyone
And well done on your 10,000 th post.
