No Glass ceiling at JavaRanch

Cindy Glass shattered yet another barrier today in her meteoric rise up the ranks of JavaRanch posters, as her total number of posts passed the 3000 mark. !!! Previously this level has only been reached by Frank, Ajith, and fearless leader Paul Wheaton. It's worth noting that Cindy was at "only" 1000 on March 2, and crossed the 2000 mark as recently as May 15. (A nice linear progression there, in fact.) Is there no stopping her? Fortunately for all of us at the Ranch, the answer appears to be no. Cindy has been a truly amazing contributor to the ranch, and hearty congratulations are in order. Great job, Cindy!

Well, I think, we should organize a special group to investigate "Cindy phenomenon". The results can be highly useful. If we figure out how she is doing it, then all other moderators can study her method and then... Under my estimations, JavaRanch traffic will achieve about half of the Internet entire traffic.
Congratulations, Cindy!

Wow Cindy nice going. I need to thank you (like I did Jane a while ago and all the other bartenders) for your work and your posts. I know you've helped me out on more than one occasion so with over 3000 posts there must be thousands of people you've helped and given answers to!!!
Thanks again, and please stop dropping broken glass on the rest of us.

Well done Cindy. I won't make any "Glass" jokes, but I do think you are doing a wonderful job.

I, too, would like to congratulate Cindy. I've been reading posts on here for some months and haven't yet posted. I have noticed Cindy helping out a lot. I can't imagine posting that much. :-) It is difficult enough to post this first one. I'm an extreme greenhorn.
Congrats again!

Cindy you are an amazing person. Congratulations.
To everybody else: Has anybody tried to calculate if and when she will pass Paul Wheaton if she continues to post at this rate?
