Happy ATS Birthday! Imagine if just a fraction of what you wrote changed the way readers thought! The pen truly is mightier than the sword.

(unless you chop up the pen with a sword, then the sword would be mightier than the pen

Happy ATS Birthday Intrepid! I wish we could get ya something ... How about simply a big warm thank you for helping to supply the place we can all come and both share information as well as learn from others.

Here's hoping for a good journey to your 100,000th!
(Now I'll bet that thought makes your fingers sore just thinking about!)

Congatulations Intrepid, a feat indeed!
Thank you for your insightful contributions throughout the years. You are one of the reasons I decided to stop lurking and to become a contributing member.
Since this is your 9th year here and 50,000th post, I think you owe us all a really, really good conspiracy thread!
Peace brother!

Happy ATS Birthday intrepid!

Really doesn't seem like it's been that long. Still 6 months away from my #9 and look how little my post count is.

Man...took me a little trip down memory lane and got to thinking about WOS.

gz you !

remember this ?

posted on 7-1-2004 @ 10:04 AM this post 2 weeks ago a friend turned me on to ATS, I was hooked. Unfortunately it has taken me this long to get my ISP to fix my e-mail, but I have been following my topics of interest. These include science & consp.'s but my "special interest" is politics. I guess you could call me slightly left of center politicaly. I'm new but current.

Wow, internet nostalgia. I haven't seen much of that before (so congrats for an original thread), but it makes perfect sense.

Remember the old days, when the 56K had you waiting with a drum roll every time you opened a new page (and as with Christmas, the excitement is in the waiting), In them days, internet porn was but pixellated stick figures and you couldn't get a decent app to learn whale singing, there were no pop-ups for online poker games, trolls lived exclusively in Middle-Earth's forests (not in the Middle East Debate Forum) and psychopaths stalked real people instead of avatars, and people talked about REAL THINGS in the forums...

Yep, those were the days!

Can't imagine this place without all you have contributed to build it up and maintain it.

I'm nearly reaching 9 years as well, but I must admit I have far less posts than you have!
I remember the early looks, quite a nice change yeah. I was actually wondering at the time how long I could possibly stay on a forum, or even how long could a forum last really.

Guess we have an answer so far. And waiting to extend the record.

See you next year, and next year + 3 shorts months for our 10th anniversaries.

Congrats on your dubious achievement.

Are you still sane?

Surely 50,000 posts on ATS must be some kind of indicator of mental health problems.

Happy ATSday Intrepid.

See you round.

posted on Jan, 7 2013 @ 03:21 PM
To put in perspective the monumental nature of this occasion, as well as the ubiquity and quality of your posting frequency: In June, I will have been here as long as you, and posted one fiftieth as much!

Congratulations and a one day belated happy birthday to you! Peace.

WOW I must ask you a personal question, how many keyboards have you burned up?
I suppose when you first started they were made here in North America so they probably had some sturdy legs on them.

My guess is now they are from overseas and a little weak in the stamina department.....

Regardless I appreciate your dedication and your posts.

Regards, Iwinder

Thanks guys. The thing is that the only TV I watch is the NFL. I'd rather be here than watching Judge Judy or 2 and a Half Men. I even get my news here. This is a unique dynamic and it's interesting as hell. Even with those that you disagree with. You are still apt to learn something. Maybe not about a given topic(maybe so) but maybe something about a sociological attitude.

What has the board done for me? #1. Made me think. I thank you all for that. #2. Made me paranoid. Thanks guys.
Learned debate skills. Patience. THAT'S a biggie.
People have said in this thread that I have contributed well. Thanks. I appreciate it BUT I think I've gotten more from this exchange than given. Or maybe it's reciprocity.
