When I first started posting on, and in threads on, and in this website a year ago, and since it's my first year anniversary, and I don't, and didn't know if anyone would've noticed I have, it is, and would post a thread in, and on this part of the forums, I would post a thread myself to remind people that it is, and maybe, want to, and would like to post a little something about it.

Maybe it's like The Queen's birthday - an official date for the public (July 11th) and a private joining date just for the family (November 14th)?

Could be.

Maybe he identifies with joining in July.  :)

I know the month, and date says on "Nov. 14", and how it works, too.  I was going by the number of days, too, which was three hundred, and sixty-five, is underneath, where a person, and people if they want to, can upload a photo to, and for their profile, and bio.  I'm sure, I didn't, and haven't read it wrong.  Even if it is nearly, and almost six months earlier, I'm thinking, and would be thinking ahead, which I think is nothing wrong, with it, and doing that.  A year can, and does go by fast.  I may've threw, and probably have thrown people off, surprised, and confused them by this.  At least, there wouldn't need to be one on "Nov. 14" of this year, but to keep in mind, for that actual month, and day next year, which is in 2020.

I have no idea, honestly and bemusedly, as to what, and of course, why, is going on.
I think Derek19 could be, and possibly might be, depending on, or of, the circumstances, a bot that is learning, and trying to improve, its skills and techniques with, but not exclusively to, the English language, such as it is, and its punctuation, thereof.
I shall not, but probably will, although I hope the former and not the latter, be fooled again, to quote The Who, or High Numbers, as they were, or are, once known as. No one likes to be fooled. :no:

You did that very well.  I think it would make me lose the little sanity I have left if I even tried to write like that.

I don't even really know what a bot is, but do you think he is?  I just figured English wasn't his first language and he had a hard time expressing himself.

Did you understand his explanation as to why he did it?  If so, please translate for me.

This is why we originally gave vaportrailer the member title of "Comma Chameleon" (which Goose came up with) because he's so good at imitating Derek's unique form of syntax, until Goose said it was meant for Derek. We'll save that title for Derek down the road.

He writes like someone from corporate services. Although I don't think they have a base of operations in Comox (although there is, or used to be, that is, a military base there now, or at one time, once).

Something about time travel.
Maybe he lives on another planet. One of those fast spinnin' ones, Venus maybe.

Vapor even got all the disjointedness (does such a word exist??) of the sentence too.
