    What, No Party for 80,000+ Members?

    I believe some kind of celebration is warranted, given that the DC forum has recently passed 80,000 members. When I joined in May, I think the membership was about 72,000. That means we've added over 1000 members a month. Who's buying?

    The main party, catered dinner, and year-end awards are always held at DC's corporate offices. Everything you need to know, plus travel accommodations, are included in your invitation. The invitations are very clear and specific, I can't imagine why the confusion? Oops......... uhhhh, uh.....well? Oh i bet the mail is probably slow this year. Yeah, that's it.....the mail.
