    I love iOTW and recommend it, via links, to lots more strange-o’s. You and your merry band of malcontents keep me mightily amused (and off the streets) with your brilliant p-chops, witty repartee and 90-sec. radio interviews.

    Here’s to 25 million more!

    I want to thank all my fans and supporters here on IOTW for my immense popularity and adulation. Of course, none of it would have been possible if not for BFH and his devoted group who continue to give us this venue to vent our frustration and admiration on so many issues. Cheers to them and cheers to everyone else!!!!

    Congrats BFH and the entire IOTW team. I’ve been coming here for 2-1/2 years, and only missed a few days during that entire time because of overseas trips where I couldn’t get internet access. My visits alone are a statistically significant portion of those 25 million. You are addictive!!!!!!
    Don’t let this milestone go to your heads!
    In honor of this achievement I give you this tribute:

    You can’t have great commenters without great content. This website is truly a symbiotic relationship.

    (mutualism might better describe iOTW and us {we mere commenters}, but it just sounds to liberal to label this place that)
