    I'm with 'ya, it's an aging thing. It's been (9) years for me but ever since I started taking those little blue pills I've been on here just about every night!

    (j/k - It's all good, man! :))

    I've had my account for a little over 2 years now. I only used it for reviews and occasionally lurked on the forums. I've become an active member this year finally. I'm glad I did because Facebook is boring and my friends make me feel like an alcoholic when I post beer related pictures.

    Just happened to look at my home page and realized I've been here for three years. In that time I've had the opportunity to try some great beers, make some great trading partners, and meet some awesome BA's. I don't trade as much as I used to, but I still enjoy meeting new BA's and trying new beers. Cheers and thanks for making my time here a blast.

    How does the "don't trust a BA without an avatar" trade section saying work when they've been around ten years?

    If someone is interested in how long another person has been on this site, wouldn't they just click on their avatar and read it for themselves? :rolleyes:

    Click the avatar to see if they're bullshitting, or telling the truth.
