[QUOTE=jetsfanri;3591631]I did some quick math...to get to 20,000 posts in say 5 years, you have to post over 10 times a day, every single day. If you assume 30 seconds a post (recognizing some are pretty short), thats at least 5 minutes of posting every day at least. That's a bit over a half hour every week, or about 30 hours posting every year...
I thought I was a dedicated fan Props to you guys.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Phoenixx;3591590]In "honor" of SAR's milestone post this afternoon..here's a recap on the Top 20.
Thank you, Phoenixx. Thank you, Sean. Thank you, moderators. For those of you watching at home, I thank you as well. You like me. You really, really like me. They say when moments like this occur, you should be prepared with a speech because you'll get all emotional and won't know what to say. As such, I have a few words I would like to say.
To be honored by one's fellow men is a rich and pleasant experience. But to receive the uniquely high honor here bestowed today, because of the world view of Joe Namath long ago, is an overwhelming experience. To the President and members of the board of Jets Insider I may say of their action, which at this hour finds its culmination, only that I am appreciative beyond the puny power of words to convey. I am inspired by your confidence.
I am not unaware, of course, of the special and broad significance of this award - far transcending its importance or significance to me as an individual - in an imperfect and restive sport in which inequalities among teams, racial and religious bigotries, prejudices and taboos are endemic and stubbornly persistent. From this northern land has come a vibrant note of hope and inspiration for vast millions of people whose bitter experience has impressed upon them that color and inequality are inexorably concomitant.
There are many who figuratively stand beside me today and who are also honored here. I am but one of many cogs in the wheel that is Jets Insider, the greatest fan organization ever dedicated to the salvation of a New York sports team's future on earth. It is, indeed, itself an honor to be enabled to practise the arts of peace under the aegis of the JI family.
In a dark and perilous hour of human history, when the future of all mankind hangs fatefully in the balance, it is of special symbolic significance that in New Jersey, this traditionally peace-loving nation, and among such friendly and kindly people of great good-will, this ceremony should be held for the exclusive purpose of paying high tribute to the sacred cause of peace on earth, good-will among men, the quest for Lombardi.
May there be freedom, equality and brotherhood among all men. May there be morality in the relations among nations. May upper deckers stay away from PSL owners, their BMW's, their daughters. May there be, in our time, at long last, a world at peace in which we, the Jets fans, may for once begin to make full use of the great good that is in us.
That's a lot of posts, to be sure, but I've been here a long time... time that constituted college life, no job, then a job I liked, then no job again, then a job I hated, and now grad school. So I've had sufficient time to post.

[QUOTE=WeskerLogan;3591621]well..i like stats + it's kinda funny seeing the posters long gone. interesting stat; on the world's most visited jets fan website, 2 pats are in the top 4. bellichick is very persistent.
edit: in the future it'd be cool to have when the posters joined (for example 2/2006) and for those who've passed, the date of last post. have like an avg, etc. be kinda interesting.[/QUOTE]
I wonder what percentage of those 20,000+ posts contain the words "doushebag", "Go back to patsfans.com", or "GFY" .
