Since streiff is telling his story... huh. I don't know if I really have any. As near as I can remember, I more or less segued smoothly over from Tacitus to RedState; I commented, then diaried, then got front-page privileges at the former site, and then started doing the same over at RedState. I do remember getting moderating privileges, though. Mostly because the trolls all hid for a day and a half after I started chortling in glee, and I think that I ended up having to ban Neil Stevens.
It's been a fun decade. At least, on the site. The political situation has had its ups and downs, to put it mildly. But I work with a bunch of great people, get bemused access to sitting legislators on the federal level, and every so often I get to be a troll* for the side of Good. Not bad for a kid from Jersey.
