You're giving him too much credit. AARP only has 7.58% of all posts, or 6.63 posts per day.

It is just a shot of GLLX 3001's headlights. He didn't use a flash, just aimed and focused right. I envy it :lol:

You're correct, my post count is irrelevant.

However, I am pleased to see you changed your avatar to match your username. Thank you for your cooperation.

It is OK that you live in Defiance because you will not follow AARR's rule.

It's exciting to see new and relevant members here :D

Just a friendly FYI to please select a Username and Avatar that is related. For example, my Username is AARR and my Avatar is an AARR FA2.

So if you have an Username of ConRailsomethingorother please select a ConRail Avatar.

If you have an Username of Saturnalia then use a picture of the planet, Saturn.

If you have any questions feel free to post them here.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I will continue to have the username SD80MAC with an Amtrak Dash 8 as my avatar just to spite AARR.
