Post number ten thousand

Post by A_Morley » Thu Jun 15, 2017 12:05 pm

That time has come. You'd think that it'd have happened sooner for as many years as I've been here. I can't just post anything that happens to occur to me at the time, however. I believe that discretion is always, always the better part of valor and that a man can me judged more by what he doesn't say at any given time. Bear in mind that I speak and write for a living and do it better than nearly all of you. Language matters. Few things matter more, in fact.

Do you know what else matters? Fellowship matters, people. Those tokens of our true fellowship are things like pipes, tobacco, craftsmanship, good wishes, and prayers. Your politics don't, don't, don't matter and neither do mine and I am sick and goddamn tired of your always harping on it. I've been near driven to quitting CPS more times in the past six months than at any other time in the decade I've been here. Direct and moving intervention by mods, admins, and CPS veterans moved me to stay. I still wonder if it's been worth it.

Go smoke your pipe. Post about it. Don't make me regret that I keep logging in after more than ten years and now ten thousand posts.

What do you get someone for their 10,000th post? Paper? Silver?

You're a rascally rascal. For those that 'get you', CPS is better with you than without.

I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the majority of the last ten thousand posts that you made. I hope to enjoy most of the next ten thousand posts you make. Some of your generally insulting posts have been among my favorites.

CPS is the only place that I can talk politics and religion with people who are always wrong, yet loving, forgiving, good-natured and resilient with humour and pretended manliness. Don't take the politics out of CPS. It matters too.

CPS would be a sad, lonely place without you. Congratulations on 10,000. BTW I'm playing Prospero in The Tempest. We've had few rehearals, still don't have a complete cast, and we open 7 July. I'm scared! I won't post this in the prayer thread as you're probably the only one who'd understand.

Congrats on the 10 grand. I think you should celebrate with another trip to visit Del. I am sure you could both use a good hug.

Cheers to you, A-M. For what it's worth, I'm glad you're still around.
