By the way, you may have noticed the new party theme for the forums. If you're finding this incredibly annoying, you can still view the old-style forums here.
Thank you, Dr. Bob, for that link. I note that the new design is still under "old", with the old design under "old/orig". That "old" in the URL is getting to be permanent!

As I fast approach my own 10,000 post milestone, I thought I'd look up my first post:

post 182888

I was a lot thinner on the paunch and thicker in the hair then...

That's an awful lot of spam. Or possibly a lot of awful spam.

Well congrats to QI for a decade.
Dunno what I would have done without you.

I just regret all the porn I haven't seen because I've been on here.

Oh, I don't know. There's one chap who posts quite a few semi-naked pictures of himself.

What about all the porn you couldn't star in?

I had no idea that I had made such a milestone in posting. Rest assured, it won't happen again.

I'm surprised to find my first post still here after 9 years.

Thank you Jenny for the introduction, it has mostly been fun :)

Just checked -- I am coming up to 8 years on Friday. That's about equivalent to GBH with intent, isn't it?

Yes, but you only get remission or parole for *good* behaviour.

Nope, we delete all the spam, so that would no longer show up in our database.

These are people that have genuinely posted one message which has remained, but they've not felt the need to contribute any further.

Here are a few examples:
Taff
mister pock
BuddhaPest
cds83 (ah, that old chestnut!)

SS QI? :-) Nice one, that. It's been a most educational, amusing, sometimes irritating, journey so far, and bless the day I pressed the 'talk' button for the first time, not knowing that - most important of all - I would find friends here.

BuddhaPest is a friend of mine - I'm sorry he didn't stick around, but I do see him occasionally on Another Forum and on FB.
