These were all posts which hit the 1000, 3000, & 5000 milestones.
I have absolutely no problem with congratulating someone hitting the 1000's.
If we start congratulating people for posting at every 100, then we would be inundated with them, some people would have a thread dedicated to them every week
Also, another thing which gets me is people jumping up & down shouting "Look at me, look how fabulous I am" etc, etc.
Call me boring or old fashioned, but I think posts like this should be started by someone other than the recipient.
Lastly, I have nothing against you as a person, you've just been lucky enough for me to choose this thread to vent my frustration.
Hope I didn't p1$$ on your parade...you'll get another chance to celebrate when you hit 700
