I’m kidding. Congrats, dude! Always eloquent, always empathetic. You are a true intellectual, and are one of the few people I seriously respect on this site.

Congrats! I think I witnessed it happen in my question.

Is it just me or are a lot of people reaching lurve milestones lately?

You can have the room down the hall that Daloon just vacated when he moved to the 20k castle!

Now we can party all night!

Wow, that was quick! Congratulations!

Now you have to clean the toilets in the 10K mansion. ;-)

dpworkin's avatar

Are we sure @pdworkin did it? It hasn’t shown up in the Community Feed. Mayhap he is trying to pull something funny.

Grisaille's avatar

I seriously think his ascent was the fastest of all time.


@pdworkin I’m not sure. I hope I got the right guy.

Dog's avatar

I still think @The_Compassionate_Heretic was the fastest of all…

But pd was freaking fast!

Nice job buddy, I always like your posts, lurve.

Grisaille's avatar

Btw, I’m beating your ass to 20k. You watch.

I’m dropping the gauntlet, here and now. In front of everyone.

Prepare yourself.

J0E's avatar

Yay! In congratulating @pdworkin I surpassed 5K… lurve fest!

@Grisaille It’s all yours, dolling.

marionef's avatar

Wow…how do you get to be in the 10k club?

marionef's avatar

@Dog I’ll take one, thank you

Grisaille's avatar

@marionef By being a grumpy old know-it-all high school drop out, who is a Senior in college majoring in Psychology so that you can get a Masters in social work. Also, have an awesome mustache that makes up for a lack of head hair.

EDIT: Also helps if you look a bit like Ghandi.

Jeruba's avatar

Oh, wonderful news! @pdworkin, congratulations by the bushel. You became a significant contributor very quickly, and your specialized knowledge—even before obtaining that degree—has already added great value. Your helpful attitude is obviously much appreciated. Loud hurrahs from this cheering section.

he’s the type of guy who will come storming out of his house with a shotgun, yelling at you to get off his lawn. he’s only trying to protect you from the sprinkler system that will soon activate.

he does it out of love

janbb's avatar

Well, @pdworkin I tried to throw you a party but there was already one going on down the street so they pulled mine.

I’ve said it so many times but here’s once more with feeling, “What are you nuts?’

You are the grumpiest, most irascible, intense and intelligent old man on Fluther. It couldn’t happen to a more meshuggeneh guy!

Mazel Tov!

You are very passionate in your posts, and sometimes I wish I had a sarcasm detector when reading them ;)

XOIIO's avatar

CONGRATS! To celebrate I gave every answer a GA! We’re all proud of you!

ubersiren's avatar

Holy crap, that was incredibly fast! Way to go, man!

forestGeek's avatar

Congrats, a most excellent accomplishment for certain! And I agree with the others, that was fast!!

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@pdworkin gets lurve so fast he makes Speedy Gonzalez look like Regular Gonzalez! Congrats!

MissAusten's avatar

@pdworkin Congratulations! I always enjoy what you have to say. Thanks for being a part of what makes Fluther a great place!

PandoraBoxx's avatar

10,000 ALREADY? Tell the truth—exactly how many Cognitive Behavior Therapists in the US are paying you referral fees?


filmfann's avatar

Super terrific! Tonight I drink to you!
last night I drank to Janets, so it’s quite the exclusive group!

holden's avatar

Congratulations @pdworkin! You’ve always been a reliable source for great (and sometimes bitterly sardonic) insight.

oh my gosh I almost missed this, congratulations dude!

Aethelwine's avatar

Congrats @pdworkin! Two words that come to my mind when I think of you: laugh & learn. What more could you ask for?! =)

mcbealer's avatar

lurve to ya @pdworkin !! this has to be a record….
... it’s a tie between your high-quality jellywisdom and your high-speed lurve collection

drdoombot's avatar

@pdworkin You are one of my favorite Jellies by far. I joined up about a month after you and I remember being impressed with your answers from the get-go. I might have even been having a little lurve competition with you at the start, purposefully not giving you GA’s even when I thought you deserved it. But no matter how hard I tried, you always seemed to have double the lurve I did! As you soared upward, I couldn’t deny some of your responses were too good not to click that “Great Answer” link.

You are genuinely erudite, thoughtful and rational. You are also sarcastic in a way I don’t find grating. I agree with almost every single thing you say. You’re the only person on Fluther I think I might meet in person someday.

Thank you for your wonderful contributions and enriching the Fluther community with your time and responses.


dpworkin's avatar

Thanks @jonsblond, what a sweet thing to say.

wundayatta's avatar

@pdworkin Congratulations!

Your contributions are well-thought through. You are a passionate person who cares deeply about what you say, and what you say, while I may not often agree with it, is always worth listening to.

Carry on, sir. You are valuable to this community.

tinyfaery's avatar

Good for you! You irritate me sometimes, but I appreciate the thought and care that go into your posts. Welcome.

rooeytoo's avatar

Congratulations to the self proclaimed ole curmudgeon! (I can’t believe I spelled that correctly on the first try!)

Lurve and cheers and all that stuff!

Grisaille's avatar


They took #27 for you, @pdworkin

(I just ordered my commemorative t shirt on line, I have been a Yankees fan forever and I so miss sitting in the old Yankee stadium watching them beat those birds from baltimore.)

Hey @pdworkin thanks for being on fluther. Your advice really helps. Like @Grisaille said, you are a very intellectual persona. Lurve. And yes, you do deserve every possible great answer. You are truly an amazing psychologist. I wonder if this was you when you were smaller…

marinelife's avatar

I remember that I first noticed you in a jazz thread. Anyone who likes jazz has got to be a good person at heart.

Your are prolific, perceptive, and preternaturally quick to respond.

Congratulations on your rapid rise to the 10K level.

lloydbird's avatar

Mmmm…... (?)

dalepetrie's avatar

Well, I may be slightly late to the party here, but I had to send my congratulations. Fluther, if not the world at large, simply needs more people who aren’t afraid to call it like they see it, and for that, I believe you have more than earned your spot in the 10k clubhouse….so welcome and congrats.

dalepetrie's avatar

No, @pdworkin, thank YOU for your massive contributions!

virtualist's avatar

Study hard and your future working salary is still bound to be less than the FD10k we’ve just found for you. We are determined to keep you in salaried FD bondage FO-EV-AH !

patg7590's avatar

great work @pdworkin ! you are one of my favorite Jellies.

dpworkin's avatar

ahhh, non, non,non, non, mon chere Alphonse
