I think the moderators do a tremendous job. I also think the vast majority of posters do a tremendous job and offer a great deal of insight. Topics are sometimes hotly contested, and strongly-held opinions are strongly stated, and that's as it should be.

I'm frequently impressed that such discussions stay, for the most part, on such a respectful level.

Thanks to mods and posters alike for fostering such an atmosphere.

Frankly if I was a mod, particularly if I were Tilt, I would have said " f*** this for game of soldiers " and departed some time ago.
Fortunately I am neither a mod nor Tilt... :lol: And even more fortunately they are better men than me, Gunga Din.

It is very cartoonish... I expect it to start speaking.

Yes, my wife keeps saying, while reading over my shoulder, it (the photo of the fox), looks like his head's been cut and pasted ovr the top of another animal's body.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
