Those three anonymous@ email addresses were used by many posters, i
believe those who posted using recpoker and specified hiding their
This practice of allowing posters to hide their email addresses,
practiced by both recpoker and recgroups is, in my opinion, more
responsible for the decline and fall of RGP than anything else.
Anyway, if you eliminate the anonymous@ posters, the top seven RGP
posters of all time are, in order --
Russ is dead, but all the other posters are still posting.
Remember this is not the total posts ever posted by each poster, but
the number of posts using a specific email address. I am pretty sure
that both Russ and Gary, have posted with more than one email address,
so Carson's top position is even more dominant, while Russ should
probably be higher on the list. God bless Russ Georgiev. May he rest
This is the reason I am still using ***@earthlink.net as my
email address. It was the email address I used when I first started
posting to RGP, and also the email address I used when I registered an
account on Google Groups.
My ultimate ambition on RGP is to make this prestigeous list. I am
still 3000 posts behind Francis Lee. I have probably made at least a
thousand posts as Don Guillermo and Wilhelm Kuhlmann, but those are
not included in my total, because the email address was different for
those posting identities.
I no longer want to expose my current email address to the newsgroup,
even though I can no longer claim "support from lurkers in email" as
Bell Dingbat claims to have.
I am just no longer interested in having inbox flooded with all sorts
of crank, insane emails.
I have had a number of interesting email exchanges with other RGP
posters over the years, including --
Howard Treesong, AKA Eric Liebeler
and a few others. Please do not feel slighted if I forgot to mention
If you would like to email me, our esteemed Senior Coordinator, Mr.
Popinjay has my current email address. Just send him an email
requesting my email address. If he is sure I would like to hear from
you, he will just send you my email address.
Otherwise, he will forward your email to me. I will either respond to
you or block you.
If you do get my real email address, please, please, do not post it on
the newsgroup or give it to anyone else. This is strictly
confidential information given to you because I trust you and I trust
you not to betray my trust.
Please do not disappoint me.
