interesting question, good fellow... I don't know if I should be in that decision-making process, as I'm not an Administrator... And it would be a bit self-serving ;)

So, Mr. Moderator, will the powers that be make another title once a sufficient number of people start getting towards 4,000? Maybe emperor/empress?  ;D
Maybe, we should title this category "I really need to get a life".  :D

Is this simply a case of sour grapes, "Mr. 180 Posts"? :D
No, "Mr 3,175 posts", it is not a case of sour grapes!  Unlike you other people on this board, I have a life.
Speaking of which, I have to get ready to go over a friend's house for dinner who is celebrating Christmas today on the Old Calendar.
It's times like this (having celebrated Theophany yesterday and the Sobor of St John the Baptist today and now heading for an Old Calendar Christmas celebration) that reminds me of the Aposticha from Vespers on Palm Sunday evening, "Come, O faithful, let us quickly pass from one holy feast to another..."  ;)

You call THAT a life...heck, I think I'll just keep spending my time on OC.net ;)

Yah....since GiC is the most "normal" parishioner on OC.net.....like ever... ;) ;)
Hey, the overwhelming majority of our faithful never go to Church...so it would be reasonable to assume that in order to be a 'normal' parishioner, you couldn't really go to Church except for weddings and baptisms. ;)

Yah and they can memorize entire church texts, quote verbatum all of the canons of the church, argue semantics like nobody's business and create entirely new philosophies just to irritate people off in random conversation...

Sounds normal to me!!!   ;) :p

Serbski---

We've discussed this before. Watch the language!

After being reprimanded, I think i'm going to switch to the most classy language I can find.  Time to bust out the Thesaurus.  I'm sure GiC will be proud of me... ;)

As for your "sure they can" comment...

The moderators that be won't allow me to follow that one up with my usual witty remarks.  ;)

Oh, I think the more colourful adjectives are perfectly capable of spicing up a conversation...especially if used tastefully in the most scandalous of ways...it wasn't I who objected to your word choice.

To quote Mae West, 'Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.' ;D ;)

Well, it's work...something I generally try to avoid at all costs. That was one good thing about HCHC, if perhaps one of the very few, it allowed me to realize those attempts ;)

While getting to the big one thousand is important, an even better indicator of your net geekiness is your solid 2.547 average posts per day, which puts you in 6th place in that category, behind only Matthew, Cleveland, Anastasios, OzGeorge, and GIC. Just think, if you could commit to just two most posts per day, you would be the most prolific poster here!  ;)

Well, if he continues to post two and three times in a row in this thread without anyone responding to him (other than the voices in his head) then he may well achieve such lofty status very quickly!

Asterikos,

The problem with me posting is that the things that I really want to say to people, I don't.  Many people don't learn through common sense, or thinking.  So, I just shut up and let them get themselves deeper and deeper in their hole of dispair.  ;) ;D

I'm totally going for the 2 extra posts a day!  I may even start a thread or two!  Since I so rarely do that.  I definately want to beat GiC and Cleveland in this catagory! 

Too bad their both smarter than me...lol.  ;D ;)

Other than speaking to God himself, a Serb must speak with himself in order that he get any intellectual benefit from the conversation!
Oh, I understand - in Psychology they call it Personality Dissociative Disorder (what used to be called Multiple Personality Disorder).... Often times, people who think they have multiple personalities find it easier to relate with themselves than with real people :)

Cleveland,

Just because your Buckeyes lost last night doesn't mean you can be surly with me!  ;) ;D :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p
I'm not surly about losing the game; I'm surly that you forgot me on your Slava (I'm gonna keep bringing it up until wrongs are righted)... ;)

George,

I was unaware of this fact.  S1389 will automatically (and heretofore) be evicted from Serbdom (an automatic consequence of not including a friend for Slava)!  :eek:

Well, unfortunately I remember everything that happens when I'm, er, inebriated.  But having a schlivo shot with you will suffice for me.

And as a true friend of his, despite the availability of the national drink on his slava, I ask for clemency for the poor boy ;)
