I tried writing this eloquently--lyrically even--but I don't think I could pull it off. In fact, I think I detracted from the contribution of others.
I can't keep up with it, and I'm the worse RecentChangesJunkie out there. And the conversations are good--I want to reply to everything. I'm awfully proud of the quality.
So, yes, this is an indirect plug, but I would be happy just to publically credit the contributions of others. Good work, folks.
