And PT, you star whore you! Seriously though, you deserve them. Your posts are almost always BEYOND the call of duty. I enjoy them much.
Thanks my friend. It is kind of impressive considering the majority of my posts are dedicated to sharing things most people don't want to hear, and
fewer people really want to have to believe.
You are so right though in your wise and accurate contention that there are so many outstanding posters on ATS who aren't on the list just because
they don't produce the sheer volume of threads and posts that those who have been honrored to have made the list do.
Not to mention a few posters who are so darn brilliant and ahead of the curve that it would take a couple years sitting in a Tibeten Cave in silence
and intense contemplation to fully understand the profound wisdom and insights in their words.
They don't often get the instant recognition in a star or flag for their efforts.
For some it's just a numbers game of running things up a flag pole and seeing if anyone will salute it. That's great too by the way, the more that's
put out there for people to be exposed to and consider is a great thing.
There are a lot of unsung heros on ATS in my humble opinion.
He and I go at it like cats and dogs at times but I think SkyFloating deserves an extra special mention for not just authoring so many thought
provoking all original content threads but also dedicating so much of his time to being a moderator on the site.
He very well might be the hardest working person on ATS and being a moderator and number 3 on the list is a pretty amazing accomplishment if you ask
You know, just looking at those 50 is pretty cool to see some of the numbers people have racked up. And how can we continue on this thread without
mentioning DD, at # 1 ? Congrats DD, for sure!
As an amateur statistician numbers and trends really fascinate me, it’s great to see them all in one spot to peruse and crunch.
I think it’s great for the site too, as I think it will intensify the competitive spirit of many on ATS and many on the list and those who would
like to get on the list, to keep getting that content and those theories out there for us all to more enjoy.
Dimensional Detective truly is amazing, his underlying passions and humanity really show in his threads and his posts. He very well might be the most
passionate person on a site where passion drives the debates and issues as much and more so at times than the need to understand the issues.
Dimensional Detective always seems to understand the issues he selects for his threads on a profound level few of us do.
Still at the end of the day it’s just a list and I think we all have our own favorite number one poster.
Mine is Schrödinger’s Dog for sheer brilliance and contemplative insight.
Yet the real number one spot goes to ATS for being such a well run and great place to post!
