Got to yell a HOO-HAH! to those behind the scenes admins and mods at WW. Admins do things the mods can't. Mods do things the admins don't need to (else why have Mods?) Action/Reaction by both Admins and Mods is extraordinary, if you stop and think about it.

Last night I had a bit of spam in my StickyMail. Dealt with by an Admin within a few hours. A second Admin followed up (I had cc: two). Grand results and an indication that in any given 24 hour period there is SOMEONE out there watching over this community.

As for the Mods, well, they have sleep cycles (I know, used to be one here at WW a few years back) and the job they do is sterling. Not perfect, but dang bright and always with heart. These are the "non-coms" in the trenches of daily dialogue who are not arbiters of discussion by any stretch of the imagination, which is always free-ranging and diverse, but do manage the civility and the Ordinary (the Rules of Engagement re: what is NOT allowed, such has self promotion and a number of other things). Sometimes the Mods promote discussion by offering new topics or opinions in their field... hence the high activity at WW compared to other "tech forums". Kudos to those, too!

It is all too easy to forget that real people are behind this website, that their efforts (and funding behind the scenes, however put together) make it possible for us to gather, chat, rant, or beg answers is even possible.

Not a kiss A$$ post, kiddies. This is a sincere thanks for keeping this site alive all these years. I am coming up on my 10th anniversary on Nov 29th, which makes me a youngster compared to some of the other members, and through all that time these folks behind the scenes have given freely of their talent and dedication to keep WW clicking along.

Even for freeloaders like myself. (I am not, and probably never will be, a paid subscriber)

And last, but not least, all the members at WW. Your posts, insights, knowledge shared, heck even your whimsical and absurd, too, are the ENGINE that makes the MACHINE work. Don't break your arms patting yourself on the back, each of us will take turns doing that for you!

All this above is thanks for the place, the people, the community.

Sometimes we just need to say thanks. Consider this mine.

On behalf of the team, thank you very much for the kind words. There's a great deal that goes on behind the scenes and the Moderators do a terrific and often thankless job of helping. Your thank you is very much appreciated.
