As I've said several times in this thread, I understand that being a mod can be thankless task. In ten thousand whatever posts I've had, I don't think I've ever done it.
And, in fairness, I don't think I really did it in this thread.
I tend to be sarcastic in my speech. But I also think I tend to like just about everyone (with two or three notable exceptions, over time). I like to think that years of acting respectfully builds a bit of a reservoir of good will.
Anyway, it's over. It's not a topic worth any more energy than has already been invested.
