    Got to thinking of those whose contributions over the years have inspired the most responses from me, good or bad. Not to take anything away from other regular contributors--- even those with whom I might wholeheartedly agree--- but when I saw any of the folks listed below attached to a post, I was more likely to read theirs than any others, whether due to their insight, clarity of thought, concision, articulation or part or all of the same.

    I would like to thank the academy for my nomination. My eleven years of work here have not been in vain.

    Believe it or not, there was actually a conversion in this forum; someone became an atheist. I think his handle was TheSkipper or some such.
