I completely get it. Everyone has their own style. I obsessed over slingshots and spent hours on the forum every week for years. Don’t get me wrong - I’ve got my issues - and the comradery I have found chatting with other shooters has been an important part of my life over the last decade. I’m just a bit more deliberative than some and I’ve found great pleasure in delving deep into the sport, trying and analyzing different bands, shooters and forms. I never (well almost never) write anything that I haven’t spent a fair amount of time thinking about and obsessing over for some time. It’s how I do things and it’s how I have found pleasure in the sport. 100 posts for me gives me the pleasure that 1,000 posts does for others.When I came on a couple years ago I did so with a lot of enthusiasm. I loved this new sport I’d found and just about everything was interesting to me. I was also a shut-in recovering from depression and the friendliness here was a breath of fresh air, especially for the internet. Looking back on it now I can see I’ve made so many posts maybe it was ridiculous. This is my only form of social media though and my first forum and I don’t know, I guess I never really cared much about post numbers. I do a lot of encouraging though, and these days post less now that some of the new guy enthusiasm has worn off. Can’t take it back, but I can’t say it bothers me any.
