My agenda is all pervasive. There is nothing I say, do, or write that is not infused with my agenda. Even these three sentences are filled with my agenda. 
That's truly impressive... I've tried to get my agenda in more than my usual 15% of sentences, but I haven't broken through yet.  Any tips?
My first tip would be to get yourself labeled by ialmisry as someone who has a hidden agenda in every post you make. Then it immediately becomes true. 
I think I'm getting close, in all the EP-bashing and -subverting threads...

Mmmm.  Yahtzee tournament!  That would be great.
What a wonderful way to relieve the purple demon madness than throwing around the dice whether real or online.

My next favorite choice is ScrabbleTM.
You know, I love Scrabble, but I hate always losing to my sister and her BA in English.
What bugs me is when someone thinks of a 5-letter word that uses a couple of high scoring tiles, and one tile in the word lands on a triple-word-score square.  I had an opponent once score something like 48 points on that word. :p

Memorize all the 2 letter words.  You can do it....
Eh, with the online versions you don't need to...

Yikes.  I feel your pain (or is that just heartburn?).

115 and counting.  The stirring debates, while exhausting patience and whatnot, are indeed pushing the forum toward it's next big accomplishment.

Yeah, I've learned never to play Scrabble against a professional writer. :p

Great idea.  Wish I had learned that lesson long ago!

(82 and counting) This milestone seems to be coming with less fanfare than the others... No big count-downs, no great anticipation... Bummer.

This is starting to feel like counting down the seconds to the New Year while the ball drops over Times Square.

And when I tried to post this the first time the forum had the pip

10/3/2002 - 1st Post
12/30/2005 - 100,000th
01/15/2008 - 200,000th
03/19/2009 - 300,000th

That's quite an acceleration in posting: 3 1/4 years to 100,000; 2 years to another 100,000; now, just 1 1/6 years to another 100,000.
