This is my 2694th since November 8th 2000. The fact is I only read threads;I may be interested in, are obvious or which have strange titles. But, however, one tries to be friendly and non-offensive.
Love from Charlie.

Oh,yes. I also come late to threads, after all the regulars have had their say, and become the last poster.(: > )

Not this time!

(But maybe my post, this post will be the last word. I've killed many another thread in the past. Who has posted the most FINAL messages in threads?)

Wow! I just checked my posts. I am at six hundred, sixty-six. I just may be the Anti-Christ! Well, not anymore when I click to post.

Amos has about 40,000 posts. However a rough 80% of those are cut and paste article by others.

Yes, but if you add up their collective worth, it would rank at about the level of one short chapter from a rejected Mickey Spillane manuscript. ;-)

I've backed off a lot the past couple of years so I'm not "in the running" for this dubious distinction anymore. I think the numbers can also be broken down in other ways though............Like for instance I'm sure that I hold the record for number of times using the word fuck or one of its variants so I got that fuckin' one goin' for me.

I'd say the person with the most posts of total gibberish which make no sense whatsoever is probably close between jOhn frOm HulL and Shambles. They're both entirely different but equally fucked up.

Perhaps. But wasn't it deliberate in jOhn's case?

15,295. Wow! Yet a mere baby in the posting lists. Where'd the time go?

Since I archived whole threads, I can't precisely break down my own individual posts by categories at present; but I show that I've posted to:

1,513 separate threads formally tagged as BS:. Since quite a few threads get below the line without a tag there may be quite a few others with mainly BS content that didn't get the tag. This number also includes a few "double tagged," with "BS: Tech" being one type visible with at least a few instances.

975 threads where I've made at least one post have no tag. Slightly more than half of these probably were "above the line," but that's really just a guess. It would require some rather tiresome investigation to get an accurate percentage.

680 threads were formally tagged as Tech:.

87 threads were tagged as Lyr: or Lyr Add:. Since most of our "submissions" (a few hundred?) were made via email direct to the DT volunteers, this is sort of an incidental category.

22 threads were tagged Tune Req:, Tune Add; or had titles beginning with Tune (Ident, Origins, History etc) that were easy to identify and count. The same comment for direct submissions to volunteers applies.

3,277 total threads "sort of" identifiable by kind.
7,973 total posts (including this one)

Is there a way to identify who's originated the most threads?

We've had terrible battles about who's killed the most threads. A question like "who's started the most" is almost certain to cause similar arguments, even though it's less ambiguous than the debate about the other end.

There is (one hopes) always a first post in every thread, while it's never quite possible to be sure a thread has been properly and decently killed because someone might come along and post to it again.

Only a clone can "officially terminate" a thread, and even then they, or another clone, might bring it back to life.

It should be quite simple to construct a data set suitable for counting how many threads each person has started.

A list of all the "individual posts" needs to be made, but only the "headers" are really needed. The list must then be sorted, possibly alphabetically.

All threads that come after the first one in a thread start with a "Re: <thread title>" so deleting all the individual post headers that begin with "Re:" would leave only a list of "first posts."

Since the second line of each header consists of "From: <poster's name>, inserting a tab or other separator ahead of "From:" (replacing the linebreak) would allow conversion to a Table which could be sorted on the second column (which would include submittor's name) and all those with the same name as for the preceding one could be incremented by one, restarting the numbering at 1 each time the name changed.

A sort using the number column (after fixing formula results to values) then would bring the highest number to one end or the other, instantly revealing who had started the most threads.

It's elementary, of course; but one needs the entire threads database all in one place to actually do it.

People who smile at you while they say things like that, Little Hawk, are the source of more misery among humans than all the Republicans in Iowa, Ohio Florida.

To quote the legendary W. Jefferson Clinton, "Shame on you.".
