Thank you. You are very kind! That means a lot to me.
I tend to have my head in the sand most of the time, so your perception (the pecking order thing) is probably more astute than mine. And you are definitely also one of those people who make VF a great place. And don't get me wrong, I've been involved in a few controversies there myself. Some people can just be nasty, and that seems to be amplified on the internet.
You handle those *controversies* amazingly well! My problem is I speak stream of conscience and that doesn't help (especially after a martini). Anyway, you are one of those people I will stop and read every time, without being too gushy, a voice of reason.
