What is your proudest moment on dvdtalk? Brag thread...

Bonus points if you can link to the moment. Over the years there have been many funny, insightful and mean moments here at dvdtalk. Some threads and post have turned into classics, while others are ignored or not even noticed. What is the one thing you have done on dvdtalk that you are most proud of? Was it winning an argument? Was it a joke that blew up? Was it a moment you thought was great but no one noticed?

I am not particularly insightful or funny...but my moment was a little joke I made in the fallout 3 thread. It got a few responses, but not really that much. I personally was very proud of myself..

The thread

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/video-game-...y-bears-5.html

Fallout 3 was about to come out and mhg83 posted an article about people pirating the game before it came out.

"Pirates rush to torrent leaked Fallout 3

While we're sure they're not too happy about the leak, they can at least take heart from the positive response most people seem to be giving the game. Early reactions to Fallout 3 have included, "Sweeeeet!" "Yay!" and "I want to **** this game so hard!""


I responded with "I want to fuck this game so hard as well...but I will wait until she is legal..."

So what are you proud of?

I'm proud of never losing an argument with creekdipper, dvdjunkie32, or various other banned-its who shall remain nameless.

"Blockbuster rents the UNRATED version of Caligula as well as many titles that could easily be considered softcore pornography."

It went pretty much unnoticed, but this thread was dy-no-mite: Incoming Spammer?

Pretty sure I was the first member to use the word "fuck" in a post after the forum's word censor was severely loosened in the early 2000s. The policy change hadn't been announced yet, so I was shocked when the word didn't appear as a series of asterisks.

Looks like Deftones beat you by a few hours, but nobody noticed:

Not a forum thing, but getting an email from Tracy Nelson telling me that my 'crush confession' in my Square Pegs review made her day ...

I'm still riding the high years later.

Oh, those were some good times. Bandoman kept having his named changed, and for a short period I was named Bandoman just to add to the confusion.

I posted this picture* in the Random Picture Thread; many saw a deeper meaning for what I thought was a nice picture of a guy reading Game of Thrones.

This isn't the proudest, just the most infamous.
