ABD? All but dissertation, in academic parliance. 5000 posts got me promoted to Poster Extraordinaire. Doctor of Teleosity takes 10K. I’ve been here four years now. I’m averaging 6 posts/day these days. Dissertations run a few hundred pages. 5000 posts will fill at least that many. I’m looking at three more years unless I “cheat” and take @brookdalebill ’s approach and reply to every new member and then some. Maybe I can follow @Toto'sDad ’s example and start five threads a day and respond to the more well written posts in them. Or I can just keep doing what I do now. Your input, as always, is encouraged and welcome. You can also tell me I’m nuts to care about this and crawl back under my rock.
