All hail Paper...

When I first joined up here a gazillion posts ago, I got a lot of help from a lot of people. Most of those people (particularly the mods that were running things when I got on board), I have been able to break bread with. Give em a hug. Tell them how much I appreciate them. They live near me. One man who deserves a hug and a beer lives too far away, however.

Now, there is one man in particular who does a TON of shit for all of us. It boggles the mind to think about it actually. That man is named Dan, like me. You might know him as Paper.

I just wanted to take an opportunity to salute Dan and thank him for everything he has done for klrforum and for me.

Dan, you're a hell of a guy. And you deserve this 'thank you' and much more. I think it could be argued that the forum would not exist in the capacity it does and with the tone of respect we have if it were not for Dan.

In fact, be on the lookout, brother. A token of my appreciation is headed your way.

And to all the mods, new and old, thanks fellas.

the other Dan

All Hail Paper! I like the sound of that. It could catch on and become our chant....

I would also like to thank Dan for his vast knowledge and advice on this website. I too have asked many questions and have received some great feedback and direction for him. I second this sentiment.

I would also like to mention that this also goes out to the many others who have responded to my post and have asked the very questions that i was about to ask. Thanks.

HAIL PAPER!


Completely agree. I've only been around a couple of years but Paper has always stood out as a great moderator and great guy. It's nice to see him recognized.

Stop it guys.. I'm here helping because you guys are here.. It's the entire group that makes this forum what it is..

And Dan (LJ) you know we've hit it off like brothers since the beginning. You're one of the reasons I love logging in, and I'd love to be able to hang out with you guys in person.. So skip sending me anything and whatever you were going to do, do me a favor and just donate it to a charity in our names instead..

I appreciate the cuddly side, but it's too late. The surprise cometh...

Paper's head is going to be so big his helmet won't fit anymore!

Seriously, I have had the honor of meeting Dan in person a couple times and he is one nice person. Always willing to help and to share some humor. The world is a better place because of You Dan!!! Darn, I think I have a tear welling up....

Of all of the forums that I haunt, this by far my favorite because of the likes of you guys. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for being there!

Stop!
I'm here because you guys are here.. All the users make this place what it is..

Now.. I'm sitting in Jacksonville, FL right now and I've gotten an email that a "package" is being dropped off at the dock at work.. I knew I shoudn't have told Dan where my office is located..

LJ, what did you do?
