I only just realised that Reubadoob is sittin' pretty on 9,999 posts and crying out for a tribute thread!
Amongst the myriad threads of "Congratulations, Blerkenderk, you have reached 3 posts," PeanutButterBar's attempts to get himself banned by acting like a four-year old nymphomaniac, 'turf-wars' and appreciation societies seeming to bleed liberally into the annals of CW's chronology, a true hero has stood resolutely as a reminder of times (and people) past.
For some, he is one of the sole dividers between good and evil; the quintessential yin and yang embodied as one. A true gentle soul with the facility to embark on a vitriolic tirade when the situation demands it, Reuben has spent the last 9,999 posts honing his skill, sharpening his blade and learning to differentiate between when a quick injection of his personality is needed, and when he should stay the hell out, idiot.
For the real golden oldies (much, much older than me), they will remember him as perhaps being a bit too 'out there' and discourteous in his younger days. I think I speak for everyone when I say he has turned himself into more of an older-brother type role-model. I know he is for me, anyway.
Congratulations, Reubacubeadoobaroob. You've earned it all. I've no doubt that you'll bring in the landmark in 'The Lounge', but please, deign us with your 10,001st in here.
