You say you have "No claim to fame". Well, that may have been true in the past, but not any more. You are the first person to reach 10,000 posts here on AWADtalk! I offer you my hearty thanks for all your efforts to keep this board what it was intended to be.

Anu says: Please send my virtual cheers to Dr. Bill! AWADtalk is a better, more knowledgeable place because of him.

Dr Bill, you have been an indefatigable upholder of this board, through good and bad times. How fitting you should reach this big ol' number on the eve of AWADtalk's third birthday. (does this free you of the Carpal Tunnel qualification? I'll have to look).

Rubrick is away for St Patrick's Day weekend (in Ireland, imagine that!) but he asked to convey his best wishes to you.

Dear Dr. Bill, you say in your profile you have "no claim to fame"...well, this is just not so anymore! Your milestone here as AWADtalk's first 10,000 poster is an astonishing achievement and a throne upon which you can rest for quite some time before anybody else catches up to you!
Your work and dedication in keeping the board going through all the lulls and bumps is well-appreciated. And, for me, you are a treasured part of the AWADtalk "experience"! Keep 'em coming, Doc, keep 'em coming!

Thank you all for your kind words. I take no pride in the size of the number, which has resulted from the fact that it is my only form of recreation. I hope that nobody resents it.

Oh, pish-posh, Bill! 10,000 is a very nice number--I'd take 10,000 helpings of any very good thing. And your posts, witticisms, research, and focus on words are very good things, ten thousand times over--not to mention your occasional dip into unmentionables!

And just whose unmentionables would those be, DubDub, hmm? Do we have a little special "inside" track, hmm?

Your resolve, your dedication, your scholarship have been essential to this board over the last few years. You deserve all the praise we can give you. Thank you, Dr Bill.

Well done indeed, Dr. Bill. Keep up the good work, and keep boldly going where no Carpal Tunnel has gone before - who knows what superlative sobriquets await you, AWADtalk's own WearilessWordHunter?
