75. We are all Will Pitt.
You gotta be a pretty old fart to get that joke, I guess... At one point the good fellas over at another website were asserting that DU was really only a few people posting under a bunch of different names. They were especially sure that Will Pitt was the author of most of the posts.

We all got silly and had a thread devoted to posting and saying, "I am Will Pitt."


:silly:

99. Hey JB--er.. I mean Will Pitt! I've been thinking about you lately.
I was very, very, sorry to hear about your daughter. I'd been wondering how you are doing and hoping to run across you. You clinging to ok? Is there anything I can do?

128. It's good to see you, fellow appraiser.
Although I don't appraise here in TX. They wanted me to start over from the beginning. Ummm...no.

My favorite thing to do for awhile was to look at the discussions for changes over at Wikipedia's DU entry. The suppositions made by some posters were hilarious.

147. Hey, lady! Good to see you!
Bet you are delighted not to be working in that Michigan market these days! You made the great escape at a VERY good time!

Life here in the Illinois market is "interesting" to say the least. I'm hanging in, but these things called "sales" are an endangered species.

I knew some others who were posting so I was reading but not posting myself. My posting increased but my number still isn't very high for the years I've been here.

9. Hi I found you all and started posting in 2004
when John Kerry was running for Prez.

the years prior when the Iraq War started were lonely, I was unaware of DU.
It was a life saver, finding like minded people. :party: :toast: :loveya:

And then really didn't post much until 2005, because I couldn't bear to read anything political in the immediate aftermath of the election.

I was brought here from Buzzflash because they linked to the top ten conservative idiots. :hi: I'm an old timer from the grassy knoll society.

21. 2001 I think. I was Googling for "Reichstag Fire"
I periodically Googled for "Reichstag Fire", filtering for articles posted after 9/11.
One of the search results was on Democratic Underground.

33. Oldtimer from 2001 here -- don't remember the exact month, I think it was late spring.
I was a much more active poster during my first several years here than I am now. These days I mostly just read, although I'm here reading almost every day. 10 years of hanging out on DU is a hard habit to break. :)

77. I am passed over again!
I did not merit a special name or additional comment--not even my name in bold type! Looks like I'll have to hang with DU another ten years if I want to be taken seriously.


That list is kind of sad. Lots of names on there that are gone from the boards, and far too many that have passed from this world.

I have to say that I was perfectly aware that anything I share here will be available to the entire internet to read, but it never occurred to me that anyone would become obsessed enough to start a running commentary on it. Are they really that bored over there?? LOL

Lost two monikers (see sig line) due to extended interruptions of internet service, financial difficulties etc, etc and rejoined a couple of months ago. Had around 6000 posts under those names; dunno if that makes me an old-timer, maybe a grizzled DU veteran.

Never. Though there have been a couple of times when, due to some mishap I couldn't be around, but never lurking.

Been here almost ten years now--June 2001. Considering DU only got going in January 2001, I could say I've been around most of that time.
