Welcome Big M. And by telling us that you're number 1,000, you've also shot into the list of posters at number 472.

I'm also intrigued by the chap just ahead of you, Emergency 999. I look forward to some fast responses from him.

Does that make me 473? Fast enough for you?

For some reason, you've entered the charts at number 464. Don't ask me why. Luck, I suppose. And 13 minutes isn't a bad response time, I'll give you that. But there's no room for complacency. There's a lot of thread drift could happen in 13 minutes. By the time you appear, someone might have started going on about Trout Mask Replica or that Sarah Palin woman again.

Congratulations, Big M, and a big welcome.

Having seen that we were approaching this number, a few days ago I went back through the list to see if there were any spammers still lurking on it, having not been picked out when they first tried to join.

If we had allowed open entry to all and sundry, the number would be 30,000 or 40,000 by now, probably more. But we always were and still are choosy!

I contacted a few people who had made no entries at all, in case they were not real people, but in each case but they asked if they could remain, passive members who enjoy reading the forum's messages without wanting to contribute and of their own.

So I think we can safely say, you are the bona fide member number 1,000.
