#68132 - 04/29/02 07:03 PM Talking all that jazz
In response to would that we had as many as 30 regular posters.
JazzO, talking all that jazz, replied This didn't take any more than 5 minutes:
4 Max Q
8 of troy
19 Ted Remington
25 The Fallable Fiend
and that's not even complete.
It most certainly is not.

you're so right Doc - but I am sure Jazzo did not mean to be unduly prescriptivist ;)

I think all Jazzo was doing was brainstorming by heart a list of at least 30 regular posters to show, yeah, there are at least 30 regular posters that anyone here (who regularly posts) could brainstorm in five minutes. Each of our lists of 30--set that stopwatch at five minutes!--could easily come up with at least 30 and each of our lists would have variation in who we remembered quickly probably based on the kinds of threads and entries we remembered either fondly or with a groan!
Take comfort in this, Doc!

Don't mind me - I'm just an irregular poster.

For what it's worth, I PM'd Jazz immediately following the posting of this list asking if I had been intentionally left off. His reply, printed here with his permission, was as follows:
No, it wasn't intentional. I basically just went through a few threads I was reading and wrote the name that I saw and then a couple that just popped into my head.I guess I didn't see your name on the threads I was currently on. Sorry, no hard feelings please.
Now...what a sweety he is!
