Congratulations Steve on reaching the 6000 mark. Obviously I have a long way to go before I ever reach what you've achieved in this forum. I actually really like your posts.

Straightforward and a welcomed contributor to any thread. Keep up the good work! Oh and enjoy your Easter weekend \:\)

Congratulations, Steve! Both for the quantity AND the longevity... the forum benefits a lot from people like you who have been around since the beginning. There's a lot of institutional history and perspective you have to share. \:\)

Wow, that's a lot of years and a lot of posts! I've been one of the more prolific posters on a Belly Dance forum for years - and am around 3400, so I understand how long it takes.

Put me down as another "I enjoy and learn from Steve's posts" person...

Congratulations on the 6000 posts, Steve. I think I’ve both agreed with you and disagreed with you a few times, but I still think I would not hesitate to buy a piano from you \:D .

Best regards,

Rickster

Dear Steve,

Reminds me of a something my Father used to say, "Just because someone is moving fast, does not mean there is any action happening." ;\)

In your case, I see action.

Happy 6k.

Congratulations Steve.

I still haven't gotten around to reading your book "The Lazy Man's Guide to Purchasing an Acoustic Piano" OR the companion supplement entitled "An Even Lazier Guide to Purchasing a Piano."

But at least it's not because I'm lazy. It's because I am BURIED in schoolwork. Hopefully this summer I'll get back to being lazy and actually crack the book.

\:D

Sure, everyone is all congratulatory to Steve. But he is not operating alone here. What about the rest of us, who have had to read all these thousands of posts? Where is the credit for all that time? I could have had multi-thousand posts, except I spent all that time reading his...

And hats off also to the people who annoy Steve, (you know who you are, and so do the rest of us). By jackbooting Steve's raw nerves you troglodytic persons assist in running up the post count. Without you, how would his typing skills have developed so nicely?

But Steve's antagonists can only take the barest of comfort - he's already cut you off at the pass. Interesting, isn't it, that now it's Steve[/b] who is the Internet phenomenon? Now that's revenge...

\:D

Congratulations, Steve, on your "milestone." Or is it a millstone? I haven't been around for all of those posts, but I have found many of the ones that I have been here for quite informative. I would not hesitate, were I in your area, to trust you with my business. I wish I could say that about all the dealers who post regularly, but there are a couple who seem a little bit . . . well, you know. \:D


By the way, did you notice that we both have a 1 and a 9 in our member numbers? Weird, huh?
