    If Maribou continues to handle herself remotely as well as she did today (I have little doubt she will), FISH YEAH!!!Report

    Thanks. I’ve noticed the comments have been slipping. Even though I don’t comment much, I’m on the site daily. This is the only site that I read all of the comments and I truly enjoy this community’s rapport. There are a few bad apples, but almost everyone comments in good faith and good argument.Report

    Somehow I suspect that by the 30th when I’m down to the Springs, I’ll owe you (and @jaybird for suffering through) the adult beverage rather than the other way round :^)Report

    Maribou, you’re crazy! And congratulations to being added to the masthead.

    I’ve never really had any problems with the commenters here, but I take anything I read on the internet with a huge grain of salt. I have no idea what goes on behind the scenes here, though I imagine it involves more than a little bit of facepalming. So, Godspeed, Mari!Report

  10. Good luck, Maribou! I like all your comments and trust to your fairness.

    I also realize that while I haven’t been one of the leading offenders, I’ve done my share to make certain commenters feel unwelcome, choosing to attack instead of listen or ignore. I obviously have to work on that. And while that’s my problem, and not yours, I realize that might mean you’ll have to correct me from time to time. I’ll promise to respect what you say.Report
