Who wants to be a better brewer when "Coolness" is involved...  :o

...and 4 minutes is NOT an excess amount of time... :P

Meh... I would mention the full moon but that was Wednesday or Thursday, high-strung
comes to mind, but what ever.

Post counts, and titles based on them, are stupid in my opinion. Just because you type a lot or have a lot of excess time on your hands, doesn't make you a better brewer.

Oh yes it does...try it...you'll see.  ;)

Denny had over 300 batches brewed and his own yeast strain before this forum even went active.  He is a prolific poster BECAUSE he is a better brewer and has the experience to back it up.  Let's just be thankful that he has the time and is willing to share it with the rest of us!

It actually doesn't take long to distinguish the "post whores" from the people who know what their taking about.  There's a guy on another forum who could probably figure out how to build a spaceship, fly to the moon, and brew in a zero oxygen atmosphere, but has pretty low post count.

Post counts are fun, but don't try to take them too seriously ( well except in Denny's case :) )

Best way is to just spend time onboard and check out the different poster's levels...
Start with Denny and work your way down....I suppose you could pm Drew and get em...
