Is Roberto Gone?,
Iwog - Are you thinking of bearmarket perhaps? The myopic dude who wanted to move to Oil City, PA.
Funny thing. He called it quasi-right (50% decline in some areas) and if fracking takes of, PA won't be a bad place to be on the rebound.
* Note - rambling tangent *
Man I've been around here far longer than I care to admit to.
FWIW, the "date registered" in my profile is not accurate. Patrick had an old fourm format that predated this one - somhowe the date registered got wiped out when he upgraded.
PLUS I remember lurking on this site WAY back when he, DinOR and PeterP were doing blog posts that were VERY West coast centric (hence my handle).
If Patrick has had this site for a bit more than decade now,
I think I've been around for 90% of it. I've seen many people come and go (or even come, go and come back) over the years. Heck some of y'all almost feel like family - in that distant - 2nd cousin once removed sort of way.
I may not post as much, (I was starting to sound like a broken record) but still lurk.

Update from ECBB,
APOCALYPSEFUCK is Comptroller says
Listen, Wogster, it's a very lively crowd here but no one stooped to the kind of pornorgraphic slander you described of actually calling someone a REALTOR. We have standards.
There was one guy, I forget his name but there were many, who called almost everyone a Realtor. He was repeatedly banned but kept popping back up like a bad zit.
Thinking about all I'm thankful for. Hard to believe we closed over a year ago - specifically as it pertains to real estate.
I'm thankful that we bought within our means. I'm thankful to all of the advice (good, bad and otherwise) that you guys (and gals) put forth as I rambled my way through the process. I'm thankful that we were diligent, patient and unyielding. I'm thankful that the process is over and we don't have go through the roller coaster of emotion that can be the home buying process for a very long time.
I'm thankful that I'm on top of things and not one to give up easily. I'm thankful that the neighbors are decent, even without good fences.
