Wait, are you calling me a newb?

No, of course you aren't, cause I've been here for four years, and I would be extremely offended at being called a newb because of my low post count.

You see, post counts don't decide if a person is newb or n00b not. Grammar does. :P Truly experienced posters know that grammar is vital for survival in the spiderweb forums! ;)

Three and a half years, actually. But you have still been here one year longer than me, so why have I got 75 more posts than you?

'Tis because I post very erratically and not a lot. I come to the boards and post during small periods of time, and then drift of again for a couple of months, before I post, once, and the drift off again, this time for half a year, and then I come back and start posting alot.

And who counts months?

Dikiyoba counts months because Dikiyoba is a newb, relatively speaking. Second month and counting...

I get college spam. You'd think after e-mailing me a dozen times with no response, I'm not interesting in attending that college. Sometimes I'd check my e-mail (which I only do once a week, so its less impressive) and there would be forty e-mails from various colleges all trying to give me stuff and trying to lead me to their website. At least it's down to a trickle.

Weird.

In the past three years I've had e-mail adresses, I've gotten about two of these messages. Having such an obscure name is quite beneficial.

Dikiyoba agrees with Not Why. Most of Dikiyoba's scams and glurges comes directly from Dikiyoba's friend, who has Dikiyoba's e-mail address. And Dikiyoba thought the friend was trustworthy...

Sadly, there are currently 180 emails in my Gmail spam box, three of which I moved there from my inbox. Compared to Netscape, though, it's an oasis.

I can see five, maybe six if you really want to nitpick.

I counted 'got' and 'to as two typos. Maybe that is where I got the extra one.
