Les Khan is next at 152 and Travis Giles rounds out the top three with 151. The top names I recognize from the site or from our forum: Guy Incognito is 30th at 145, Fergusson (who I believe is Ian Fergusson of “Expert’s Audit”) is 82nd at 142, Lanky himself – Tim O’Brien – sits at 94th with 141, and fzusher is 100th at 141. You can find Dobber at 572nd spot with 129.
