Very nice. And you never even used any form of the word "peeve". Though I was surprised to find you crediting a.u.e with so much influence. There are a lot of sharp cookies on a.u.e, but most of what I've seen there since 1995 or so is the usual clueless anxiety, mixed with the usual chaotic dogmatism.
