Whoa.

Awesome.

Some of the comments in the thread for this post by Fizz seem quaint in given all that has ensued. Fizz's framing was pretty prescient!

Sometimes I find myself hearing about something or seeing a headline in passing and thinking "Yeah, that's something I should probably read up on," and next thing I know I see a Fizz post that's got a whole whack of informative links and info about that particular thing and it's all right there at my fingertips.

Congrats, Fizz, and thanks for all the posts.

Thanks to all of you.

I love this site and the community that is built around it. I learned about MetaFilter on NPR. Matt Howey was being interviewed on the radio and I was interested in finding out more about this "weblog" that he was describing. Bing, bang, bong, here I am all these years later.

Interesting side-note, looking at infodumpster, it has my post count at 1061. My profile on MetaFilter though has me at 1000. I assume that infodumpster is counting posts that have been removed/deleted. Either way, I love this place and will continue to contribute. Cheers to the mods and the community that keeps this place worth coming back to. Huzzah!

Yeah, healthy chunk of doubles in there, is most of that differential. Not super surprising when we're counting four digits.

Just a few weeks ago I commented to a fellow MeFite that Fizz is like, a model MeFi citizen. He posts interesting stuff but also always, always comments reasonably, openly, and in good faith and it's clear he really listens to and engages with other users.

Bravo, Fizz!

What lalex said: Fizz is indeed a model MeFi citizen. Well deserved kudos, this post!

Fifty, not bad at all, I'm proud I broke past single digits.

You're a great poster, Fizz, and your posts are so varied I can't remember ever reading along and thinking 'I bet this is one of Fizz's'.

Thanks Fizz for all you do, and thanks for this post, I had missed the Oct 7 post about Brutalism so I got to favorite a bunch of hate for Brutalism which is my favorite thing.

Fizz's post *content* is varied, but the quality is always high. We'll thought out with multiple relevant links. I always feel like I learned something from Fizz.

Thanks so much for your contributions!

Go Fizz! Imagine there is a MeFi song that is traditionally sung when someone reaches 1000 posts. Imagine I'm singing it for you now is what I'm saying.
