Posted by Derren Brown News August 23, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Abeo, Phillis and Coops, Mr Brown and the rest of the Enigma crew say a big thanks to all the fans that have helped us make it here.

1000 posts, 20,000 comments and we’re well over half a million visits (that’s actual people coming here) a month – and we’re not even a year old. Special thanks to those who comment and submit material making sure that the articles we post are properly addressed – there’s too many to list now, but you know who you are – even those of you that post pointless rants, humorous anecdotes and dirty little puns – AHEM – Flapjack! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Also thanks to those who have spotted glitches and boo-boo’s, typos and even mishaps that occur even at 3am. And to those who send in thanks, revealing pictures and kind messages.

Finally – big love to the religious nut jobs with their vitriolic death threats and excellent command of the Queen’s English – you see we love you too because Jesus said to. “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you” – oh yes – an extra big sloppy kiss from the Dorris to you – come to mummy and let me cradle you in my warm bosom.

Pssst, Phillis, the title text on the image says 100, not 1000.

Also, take that BoingBoing!

Congratulations Phillis, Abeo, Coops and Mr. Brown. Here’s to the next thousand posts and 20,000 comments…
I hope I don’t contribute too many pointless rants, though I’m quite happy to take responsibility for the humorous anecdotes and dirty puns, assuming you haven’t had enough yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰
My world would be dull and meaningless without you!

Well done on a fantastic blog, there’s always something interesting or entertaining posted here and that’s why so many people keep coming back for more.

Coops for Mayor, lol. What’s the other placard say? ‘Come to ???? Fight Cancer’?

THERE is NOTHING hidden, suggestive or coded in this post.

We’re just blowing our own trumpet (we’ll actually we’re just telling you we have one)

1000 posts, eh? That is awesome!

I very rarely go to blogs where I consistently see interesting posts, but this one is an exception. It’s great! There is always something worth reading, and always a good chatty atmosphere.

(I know I’ve only started posting comparatively recently, but I’ve been a reader for a good while longer.)

Well done to the DB team, for making a genuinely interesting site to visit.

If any of you are ever in Bolton, give me a shout and I’ll get you a cuppa!

Well Phillis to mark this very special occasion I think you should buy a trumpet, then see who looks the most ridiculous trying to play it hehehe : )

yay for the DB blog people!

If it weren’t for you, I would probably get more done at work, but a lot less fun during my day.

Aaaah happy 1000 posts to you all!! Flapjack, I’m pretty sure without your crazy comments, our lives would be meaningless too!

Well done on the big 1000. I’m sure none of you look that old!

Something keeps drawing me back to this site – can’t imagine who’s behind that!

Hope Derren has bought champagne and chocolate cake to celebrate.

This is the best blog. Not even Criss Angel levitating while juggling puppies on fire could improve it in any way.

1000! Wow, I dread to think just how much time I have spent this year hunting down links to send to you Phillis (and that’s with the last month off for the school holidays). I suppose in the process I have learnt many more new interesting and/or wierd facts to fill my brain with and it’s always good to have the opportunity to debate some nutty religious stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

Diana says:

I want to know who sends in “revealing pictures.” Post them up! LMAO!

p.s Have people actually sent you death threats? wow. I’m a Christian, but everyone is entitled to believe what they want.

August 23, 2009 at 8:20 pm
Diana says:

and yes you are right. Jesus said to. รขโ‚ฌล“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you.รขโ‚ฌย
Basically treat others the way you would want to be treated. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we actually did that. *sighs*
