It’s DominicX, of course! I really enjoy your posts, Dominic. You’re one of my favorite linguists and I’m always happy to heap lurve upon you. Congratulations!

DominicX's avatar

Like my 10K thread, I love reading all these replies and it’s amazing to find out just how the people view me and how many enjoy my presence here, both by what I say on this site and who I am as a person. Reading over these replies brings a smile to my face every time, no matter how times I read it. And really, I can say with no phoniness that I feel the same way about the users on this site. Out of the three primary online communities I have been a member of, this is the best and the best online community I have ever belonged to. I love my time here. :)

I didn’t reply to this right away because I’ve been busy (I’ll actually be leaving for a night in the city really soon), and I wanted to take the time to thoughtfully respond to this.

@Dog Thank you!
@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I love hearing that. :)
@jaytkay Thank you too; I always love finding out people enjoy contributions. :D
@breedmitch No ageism, just a compliment to me. :) I hear it a lot, but I never get tired of it.
@iamthemob I agree completely; it is awesome and I’m looking forward to it as well. :) Maybe soon we can get some gay marriage up in here? :P
@muppetish I’d give you 2 lurve if I could for using the phrase “cool beans”. Thanks Muppetish :)
@YARNLADY Oh Yarnlady, what would a congrats thread be without your patented response? represent. :)
@Symbeline I’m really glad to hear that, especially considering I may end up being a teacher or a professor some day. haha
@shego Thanks! Love hearing that people see my responses that way. :)
@ETpro lol thanks. :)

gailcalled's avatar

Dear @DominicX; I have been following your emotional and intellectual growth with curiosity and pleasure. You have made mature and apt choices (at least those that you have shared with this community) in the year and a half since you joined the collective.

I would be proud to claim you as a grandson. Milo admits, grudgingly, that you are OK.

mangeons's avatar

Congratulations, @DominicX, you’re one of my favorites around here, and it’s definitely well deserved! :D

Congrats @DominicX! Can we all come to your place in Tahoe for this party? It would be so fun this time of year. Snowball fights and all. :D

cookieman's avatar

@DominicX: You’re a hell of a jelly and a fantastic guy. Mature, articulate and thoughtful. I’m proud to “know” you here in the lagoon.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@DominicX: I’m so glad you stuck around for this long! It’s nice to have someone else who disproves the evils of the rich. ;)

If there isn’t room for your boyfriend, I’ll come over and help you remodel. :)

cak's avatar

I really respect your straightforward opinion, when you contribute to a discussion.

Congratulations on this milestone!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

Great work @DominicX, thanks for your thoughts!

lillycoyote's avatar

Congratulations @DominicX! While 20k is certainly an accomplishment you’re about 3 away from your 400th perfecto-fish award. The fireworks locked and loaded until then. When you hit 400 perfecto-fish, that’s when I’ll be impressed. :-)

I’m glad you made the transition from that other place, that other q&a site and stuck around. I like that some of lives on here. That some of my favorite people from there are here, and that, those favorite people, of course, includes you.

wilma's avatar

Congratulations @DominicX !
I will repeat what has already been said,“wise beyond your years”.
I always kind of think of you like one of my sons, and would be so proud if you really were!
