Open Letter to The High Posting Man....

Dear Prolific Poster....

Was checking the stats this morning, and noticed that you are 118 posts away from your remarkable achievement of 10000 posts. Interestingly, your monthly run rate last month is 472 posts......so at sometime early next Thursday morning, you can open the shed door from the bench that you have been slaving away at into the wee small hours, sucking a pencil, finely honing every last word, ripping those pages off and angrily throwing the ball into your replica NBA trashcan whilst listening to .....errrrr......Slade and blowing the slightly sulphurous froth off a Pedigree.

In one weeks time, ladies and gentlemen, we can brew a tea, cue Ride of the Valkyries and watch this fine creation drift out into the glorious ether.....


...where it will be instantly stolen by Bob and turned into a movie. Or something.

My alarm is set

(Also.......for what my diving friends call a high tariff move.....you can try and coincide your 20000th Thanks with your 10000th Post.....but you're gonna have to be PROPER good to make that happen )

Re: Open Letter to The High Posting Man....

I wonder who this Prolific poster is... Should I round up all close to 1000 posts in a room and make a Poirrot styled interrogation?

*checks own post count*

Not invited to my own party *bummer*

10,000 Miss Helm.

That'd reduce the number of suspects (and party guests) somewhat.

Could it be a certain character from the Magic Roundabout's morning meal?

Oh, now you're going to get sarcastic about longwinded and pointless threads, are ya'? Slippery slope you're on there, my friend

Perhaps someone confused 'High Posting' with 'High and Mighty'

I can see where they went wrong. Didn't drag it far enough to the right.
