Thanks, Xan

Gumby was mentioned in a really old post but it looks like Machineghost, a more recent contributor may never return. Too bad. Haven’t heard from Barrett in awhile, Pointed Stick on hiatus,

TennPaGa, always great on baseball, Please post soon.

And that’s why Vinny’s enthusiasm is welcome. I must mention mathjack in the same breath.

Three cheers for Sophie and dualstow and the thousands of posts. (There are many others with huge numbers of posts. Thank goodness).

I'm not sure if being on the list is a point of pride or shame!

Hah. I like being one of the early joiners, while acknowledging that some of the later forum-joiners adopted the pp in the 80’s.
I definitely don’t take pride in my post count, which largely comprises the afro emoji.

It's the quality of the posts that matters. Thankfully, I recognize many of the Most Prolific Club as being solid contributors of high-quality stuff.

To me, that's what distinguishes the PP forum from the run-of-the-mill internet discussion board. Contributions are, for the most part, well thought through, and contain at least some level of analysis.
