The one who finds the greatest number of threads with the exact same name, wins!

I've found 3 threads called "zmama", therefore my current score is 3.

I can't be arsed to count the number of threads called exactly "Leaving Forever", but the phrase occurs in 320 of them.

One interesting thing to note is that the earliest threads are all called "I'm Leaving Forever!", and that that form dominates for a few months before being overtaken by "Leaving Forever", circa september 2002. By november the short form dominates completely, the last incidence of the long form (http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=31690&highlight=Leaving+Forever) (coincidentally also with the old-style mock-sincerity) is by Colon in 2005.

Mr G seems to have missed that. Thanks for digging it up.

223 "Leaving Forever", with a variety of punctuation and capitalisation.

Only 25 "I'm leaving forever" (or 29 if you include the 4 "I am leaving forever" threads)

Leaving 68 more innovative variations.

Also, there are 8 "Zmama" threads, and 7 "Hey Zmama" threads. Again, excluding punctuation and capitalisation variations.

There are 62 threads titled "I need a girlfriend", 44 of which were started by mr.G.

Coincidentally, there are also 62 threads titled "Masturbation is good". All but one, however, was started by Venom. True to form, mr.G was the first reply in 40 of them. I think he left forever when the others were posted.

There are also 196 threads titled "I wish [insert poster name] would die". Surprising to me, poor Maroule is way ahead as the poster wished dead the most, although oddly enough, with the exception of one thread started by Venom, all the rest naming Maroule were started by obvious AEs.
