I don't think you have to announce it to everyone when you hit some nice number of posts. What if I decided that 161 was a nice number and posted it? Do you think it would be voted up?
Maybe it isn't the number, maybe it is because you sincerely appreciate how the Perlmonks community impacted your life. And that is okay. But what if everyone were to post a writeup similar to this? Wouldn't that get annoying?
Maybe the ideal way to show our appreciation to a site like this that has given us so much is to continue to contribute to it and make it better rather than post obvious and in some sense, useless stuff (at least that is how I see it).
And if you want to thank the people here, maybe you should show that thanks in the way you treat other people around here. I mean, there has to be some reason you have "fumed" and "flamed" around here, unless of course you consider that a good thing ....
