This is very very meta. But in my own defence, I haven't posted
anything for over a year. Mourning my dearly departed mother. I have
said before that monthly limits are prejudicial against those that
rarely post, but do post when the expletive hits the fan; and do so
with the full force of conviction they are expressing the views of the
community. Nuff said. Go ahead and moderate this, if you like.
