Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

How many pages before GE has a sook?
Pigman with the odds?
Matt with the statistical analysis (and Eli Manning butthurt)?

I signed up years ago and post only occasionally, but come on here just about every day to keep up with the Raiders news (and try and keep track/make sense of all the in-jokes), does that count as a Lurker?

(FTR, not really looking for the title, just an excuse to post in the thread)

Long time reader, varying degrees of lurking. More so in recent times.

I think it's called growing up and having a career.

Sad...I know.
You may remember me from such forum usernames as hrundi99 and... hrundi99.

Spend a lot of time lurking. Don't post as much as I want to, mostly because things move on before I can think of anything intelligent to say.

^^ As a general rule don't over think it. Spit it out the instant you think it and enjoy the mess, you fit in better that way. Also makes for some great reading, take a look at the game day threads :P

I met up with Nickman once and he quite literally tipped a beer straight into my eye.

Never again.

My boss is a Nick (the one mentioned in ruined/made thread), must be something to do with the name, if anyone wants their son to be a **** just name them Nick.
I bow down to thee oh great Nickman, the wisest of the wise, your political adroitness is unsurpassed, your sagacity is unmatched, your wisdom shines through on this forum amongst us mere mortals as bright as your scalp under the light of a full moon, never shall I doubt your analytical prowess again. You are my hero, my lord, my savior, may you accept my offerings so you continue to bless us with your genius.

Re: Are you a GH Lurker?

Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster. I have to admit, this de-lurking campaign has worked on me. Very well played. I believe GE posed a few questions to us former lurkers on the first page, so I will try to address these.

1. How long have you been reading The Greenhouse?

This may seem stalkerish, but I believe I've been reading since maybe 2004-2005, back when people would be discussing the merits (or not) of Tyran Smith and Ian Hindmarsh. Just to get my head around things did Raider 69 become Nick then become Pigman? Is Buc Nasty now Rodman? What happened to Bay 56? Is Question a real person

2. How long have you been a Raiders fan?

My parents grew up in Canberra so I always followed them, but only started getting serious in the early 2000s when virtual rugby league started to gain traction with my friendship group. Then, during Uni at UC, I worked security during Raiders games. Had the pleasure of working the turnstiles then walking the field of play. I once delivered a perfect spiral pass to Monnas when the ball was kicked dead (Monnas then just threw it away). Managed to flirt with Germ's wife while working outside the change rooms (on a separate occasion at North Bar, he hit me in the head accidentally when describing why he shouldn't have been suspended for a high tackle on Shayne Dunley). I also received a sincere apology from Alan Tongue when I told him his injury was affecting my virtual team (such a ridiculously nice guy).

3. Who's your favourite Raiders player of all time?

From personal experience, Troy Thompson. He used to live next door to me in the Fern Hill part of Bruce. It was him and Adam Mogg in the apartment. He was always so nice, invited me around to hang out during the day, offered to make me sandwiches, gave me lifts to the game, was a gentlemen with everyone he met and would always remember everyone's names. Plus he was hilarious. Seriously, one of the nicest people I've ever met. From a playing perspective though, I always enjoyed Ruben Wiki.

Anyway, you probably won't hear a great deal from me. I'm currently living in London so don't see much of the game other than highlights. I have no particular knowledge of the game itself, so I'm tactically inept. I just like watching the Raiders (but at times I also hate watching the Raiders).

That's enough from me. You probably think I'm boring already. Matt, do you have stats on the longest first post?
