    Gods, I've been here a while...

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all you lovely EGers for giving me some hope in humanity. I see way too many on-line discussions go down the hate drain but eer since I muted most gaming threads on here it's been a morally uplifting ride.

    A prime example would be the recent religion thread that didn't go the way I expected from reading the title but instead became a civilized discussion. I can't think of any other place I frequent where that would have happened. (Maybe we just have a particularly nasty on-line clique in Sweden)

    Heated arguments are mostly played out using solid arguments. There have been plenty of heartwarming and genuinely touching moments on here.

    My only regret is that I spent my first couple of years lurking. Well, now that they don't show UIDS anymore that doesn't matter so much.

    Keep up the good work guys

    This is the 5,430th thread I've posted in. In 8 years.

    I'm probably still thought of as a new guy though; you know what DaM's like ;-)

    I've been here longer than my 6, but switched usernames to fall into line with my gamertags and other online IDs and what have you.

    I've liked chatting to you over the years Tonka, its good to have nice community members like you to counter all the bad ones. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve! ;)

    I still don't understand why they let noobs post without having first gone through a probationary period.

    If only to get rid of spammers.

    I'm considering not ever posting in a new thread again and always keep my count at 5000.

    Yet it was only last year that I discovered Tonka has facial hair.
