I am the original owner of USMB and sold it a few years back. At that time the board had about 500k posts. I think Gunny is the main reason that this board has skyrocketed in its success. He was a great member when I owned the board and apparently is even better at being an administrator. Of course it also takes an entire community to make a board successful too, so credit also goes to the tremendous amount of contributors the board now has. And no, don't accuse me of sucking up, my 1 post every few years won't get me special treatment around these parts. And yes, I know there are a bunch of people here who would likely prefer to see me dead, but I'm not looking for any negativity, so save it. Just wanted to congratulate the entire community on what I see as one of the best political forums on the Internet.
