    Anybody on here that reaches 50,000 posts o_O really needs to take a break ......
    or find a new car to build.

    Go build a new car - get out of the house, get some fresh air and exercise.
    Good for the legs - circulation.

    At the moment he is just 25296 ahead of me. I'm not going to pick on him as there were months were that was about all he could do and at least he didn't slide off the face of the earth like some have.
    I've slowed way down since I retired and don't have stretches of blank time after the things I had to do job wise were done. Meaning I need to get out and get the stealth car ready to go to Victoria since the project car is still a unfinished project.

    My yearly average is 460, over the last 8-1/2 years. At that rate, I should be under the 50,000 number for at least 92 years.

    Some folks are a lot more gabby than others. Since Squirrel has been a member for so long and has a high post count I will use him as an example, sorry Jim.

    Jim has been a member for 5,408 days and his post count is 42,261 ( sounds like a lot) taking that into account his post count is only 7.8 per day. Hell that's not gabby. Mr48chevy is another guy with a high post count 24,694, but what is high really? Well he has been a member for 4,217 days and his post count is 5.8 per day. So once again not to gabby at all. Looks like post count may not determine a whole lot.

    With Squirrel, most of his posts are answers to questions.
    Not "Did you have a good shit today?" like some other.

    If someone is being polite and helpful - who cares? Wait — did you say 50,000?

    This thread is aimed at someone in particular.
    You guys should be able to figure it out :D

    He’s one of the best guys on here and helps make the HAMB the great place it is today.


    Personally I think some moderator should just delete the whole thread :D:D:D

    have nowhere near the 50K - I have "Alexa" handle my posts - Ha! just think, if this individual had put say 25 cents in a jar each time he posted something he would have enough $12,500 to buy another car with

    I can't for the life of me remember ever seeing a site actively discouraging members from posting. :confused:

    IF someone posts a lot of obnoxious meaningless posts ok maybe BUT if the threads get replies and discussion isn't that what the HAMB supposed to be? A place to enjoy Hot Rods and talking about them. IF the posts get replies and bring enjoyment to other members what is the problem.

    The HAMB just keeps on rolling along long after other sites would have gone quiet and stale because nobody posts anymore they have said everything they wanted to say. But there is something FRESH on the HAMB everyday thanks to members that do post.

    And advice like this will cause OTHER members to hesitate before posting and before you know it the HAMB lamp will get dimmer and dimmer until it flickers out.

    @loudbang I think he's pulling his leg and acknowledging a form of milestone of sorts...

  20. Anyone keep count of how many spam posts have been deleted? I reckon I've gotten rid of 50,000, give or take 49,000.

    This post may have just been a good natured rib.
    But I think it’s out of line.
    Danny’s been an outstanding Hamber and a good hearted soul.
    I think you guys are like a bunch of old ladies.

    Seriously?
    Discouraging a member to participate?
    Useless thread.

    I have been on this version of the HAMB a little over 18 years, but I was on the early versions also. At my current rate I will hit the 50,000 post mark in a little over 400 years from now. I think I will add that goal to my bucket list.

    I do not care how many post anyone has. I am more interested in quality than quantity.

    It is very easy to read to much into a statement or to over analyze a post. Sometimes you have to take a sentence for what it is.

    Exactly - before this turns the wrong way.....

    Danny proudly wears ( My Quoted saying - "Danny - you are a HAMBOHAULIC " ) what I said about him.
    And this is reliving the old days back when flaming a newbie.
    Man some guys turn soft as they get older.
    Danny's got thick skin.... at least he did ( 49,987 posts ago ) and knows every now and then I razz him.

    Heck - he only averages 8 plus posts a day - that's not much
    ( every day for 199 months - holy ….)

    Actually - I was colluding with Ryan in my hoodlum way of thinking to try to have his count stopped at 49,999 or have his count not hit 50,000 and just go back to 1.

    Man would love to see a picture on his face if that happened.

    Timing has it that Ryan's ass is on some Hawaii beach somewhere drinking some mini tooth pick paper umbrella - flower decorated boozed concoction / Mint Julip or something and my hoodlum way of thinking was this post..

    Anyway - Danny's..... Danny.
    Ok Dude by me.

    Respectfully,
    Cob
