As I said earlier, I'm a bit embarrassed by having such a high post count since I'm not all that chatty, but I have been here since 2003 (DU.1) and served as a DU.2 mod, a DU.3 host and on MIRT numerous times since 2013 and it does add up...

And I do appreciate all the kind replies - not to mention the abundance of hearts that I received this time around and I can't really object since it was all to benefit DU. And I did try to pay it forward since I value DU, not only for how much I've learned and continue to learn here, each and every day - from those who post important news and those who rec threads so they get noticed. Thank you so much!

And I also appreciate the number of those I consider friends here. I've often said that DU is the friendliest site on the internets, not to mention the great amount of information provided. I learned about DU from a friend in 2003 and one of my IRL BFFs joined DU as a surprise for me on my birthday in 2005.

We've been through good times and bad here - from the 2004 and 2016 elections to the invasion of Iraq, to the election of Barack Obama and (thankfully!) Joe Biden which we have to repeat - and while we may not solve all the world's problems here, we're here to share information and provide support in the tough times and I consider DU to be my online home. Thank you for all you do, each and every day.
