    Truly a tear jerker. What a great story, almost made me cry.
    Seeker is a great poster.

    Do you believe that was over a year ago now? Wow.

    Get in touch with me. Maybe we can all hang again soon.

    Hey, my friend, we even invited him out with us... Gavy, You did good.... You are funny though, because there were times, I was out, and I just had to try to fuck someone, or get a BJ, just so I could post about it the next day... I was fucked up...I matured now...lol... Gavy, when we knocked on that back door, that night, if they answered, that would have been a great post the next day...

    In his defense...

    My long standing fued with seeker is long over. Seeker did some things that I didn't always agree with, but he really did keep things moving in the NP4P section of Utopia Guide. For my part, I was guilty of reading my own press clippings and thought that my exploits were must reads. It's funny, towards the end of my posting, I wonder if I just wasn't going out there in some way to just have something to write the next day on UG.

    Well, back to seeker, he kept things moving. Kept people talking, whether it was how they loved his threads or detested his threads. He kept it interesting. And, in the end, maybe UG was a better place when he was posting more often.

    I know seeker has other things on his plate right now, so he probably won't respond to this. I will leave the above post as a tribute to him and the work he did for those three years as NP4P moderator.

    Not only is he my best friend for life, I think he has a lot to offer as a member of this community. There are just so many times I just wished I was able to read more of his stuff. Just o wonderful writer, very generous, always quick to buy the first round. He is witty and charming.

    Yes, NJspas, it is "well deserved".

    Sienfeld was the great show on TV ever... It was a show about nothing... Doesnt that Make Seeker, UG member of the year. He had more posts about nothing, than any other member on UG..... My vote is for SEEKER......

    I'm honored (first, I'd like to thank my parents...but not tell them), but oddly I not only don't recall winning, I don't even recall there being such a title or competition back in the days when I was most active on UG...nor any votes etc.

    How do you vote anyway?

    I'm slightly baffled (as usual).

    Don't honestly recall.

    I wasn't a mod until recently [a bit more than a year now I think].
