so... for 5 solid years, our C/C++ Warrior Narue has been a regular poster averaging 4 posts per day (4.08 to be exact).
On June 21 2009, Narue disappears off the face of the Daniweb planet.
new guy Tom Gunn had joined Daniweb five days previously, on June 18. Tom Gunn hits the ground running. He maintains a posting rate identical to Narue's (3.99 posts per day) and almost immediately becomes a C/C++ superstar. For the next 5 months, he logs 681 posts, and racks up an incredible 1400+ rep points. Yes, that's right: 1479 reputation points in less than 5 months.
Then on 13 November, Tom Gunn abruptly disappears as quick as he appeared, vanishing into the ether with not so much as a "by your leave"
and less than 5 days later, Narue has fully resumed her previous posting frequency, picking up right where she left off.
Narue may point out that she had been posting during the time between 21 June and 18 November. But i point out that it was highly sporadic, sometimes just one post a week, sometimes up to a month without posting at all.
In fact, she posted absolutely nothing at all from June 21 to July 17... July 17th just so happened to be the very day that I posted this thread about Tom Gunn's uncanny resemblance to our C/C++ goddess
I submit this for your consideration. :)
