Default This is important

So that's who longride is!

When I suggested that MO post reader submissions a few months ago noone seemed to understand me. You have obviously done a great job of teaching MO what MO is really all about. Thanks!



This is what the internet is really for IMHO. You get to listen to the talking heads (fingers?) (mice?) and then talk right back. Some of the threads at MO have been good enough to form the basis of a really good class in civics, foreign policy or group psychology.



I hearby volunteer to help out in any way I can. This is an important venture.

Default Suggestions

1) When you plant a link always fertilize it with a) A clear definition of its source b) Your personal opinion of its truth, value and content, and c) Editorial comment on what you consider the main points.

2) Please try to get staff to do the same.

3) Count to ten and contemplate your navel before flaming back. You're improving a lot here, but could do more. You get lots more points blasting the post content rather than the posters mother.

4) Be as nice as you can to JPaulCook. He's easily hurt.

5) Never disagree with rscheidler or me. We're always right.

Keep up the good work, I enjoy reading this stuff from 10,000 miles away - or thereabouts.

You didn't say what your degrees were in, although I'm guessing not Liberal Arts. Oh and how does a retired firefighter get into computer programming, enquiring minds want to know.

The "secret" Highwayman owns a Ninja!? The world as I know it, has crumbled. Your postings work for me. Enjoy the ride.

Default Thanks Longride

I think it's great that you're taking the time to upgrade the content and add information on areas that the staff just can't get to. Keep goin', guy.

Longride,



I was very glad to see you post some content. As I'm sure you already know, I was also a firefighter but now I perform as a paramedic only. I respect your viewpoint and look forward to your reviews, brother. MO, good job on utilizing a resource like Longride.



Longride if you ever get near Baton Rouge please feel free to drop by and I mean that seriously.



Take care,

Dave
