84. Yep. My posts usually dropped like rocks until yesterday.
First time ever at the top of Greatest, and it was nice.

Part of it is my own fault, though. I'm a hard-liner about some things (namely poverty issues) and I've made more than a few overly confrontational posts. I also haven't socialized in the Lounge at all.

I had decided to quit DU a while back, but something led me back the other day and now I'm already re-addicted. LOL.
