And somehow have managed to avoid total self-destruction...or getting banned. And you know what? When I was a newbie, the very first thing I did was start posting one-line questions without bothering to read the guidelines or anything. But back then, they were more-or-less accepted. So it took me a few days to get around to reading them, and it took a few months before I actually went through the FAQ's and TOS and everything else. So thinking, I guess I really need to shut up about people joining and posting before they read stuff. At least it didn't take me 11 years. But thanks to the myLot Team for running the site...and thanks to many of you for tolerating me this long...and thanks to the Interwebs for hosting it...and thanks to coughee.

You have been here 6 days longer than I have, so now I feel like a newcomer. When I first joined Mylot I did not post for a few weeks because I preferred to look around and familiarise myself with the site first.

I leaped right into getting into arguments with people. Heavy sarcasm probably wasn't the best way to introduce myself to people.

@JolietJake No, it is better to get to know them first.

@Asylum 4 days, actually... Yours will be on the 20th, and Owlwings will be on the 26th... There was something in the air of myLot that October 2006 to be attracting such fine gentlemen...

@fishtiger58 It's encouraging knowing myLot has been here that long. How long have you been on and what is the most you made in a month?

Congratulations Mike, I think that you and Barry (@Asylum) are the "older" myLotters.

Happy anniversary! So you happen to be an impulsive person, eh? I don't know why someone can think of posting an one-line question when they see most posts contain a lot of words, those little lines do really stand out.

Back when I joined, there was a lot of it...of course, the site was still in its infancy pretty much and still developing.

@JolietJake Yes, I guessed it was like that when you wrote they were more or less accepted. Nowadays I don't know what it takes to be willing to spoil the website with very short "discussions".

Aw ..there is a lot of support we received from you...wittingly and unwittingly. If lamby could do that, surely I can manage this, kind of strength. And your humor kept me happy many times. The moments that I could have wasted thinking of sad things. Ok..that is enough of compliments ..you are a great bro to have..love...hugs..tc

@marguicha Took me a few days to convince myself when I first saw this latest account of his. He had a soda can as avatar or something... I had a feeling it was Lamb but to be honest I had to consult with mysD if my feelings were correct or not.

@JolietJake Oh yes, I almost forgot Sharon. But I say you're the youngest veteran cause JJ account is new(er) than The Lamb.
