Why your website isn't crashing servers is somewhat of a mystery to me. You write concisely and well on really interesting subjects and sometimes, like today, even scoop major news organizations. Hmmph! I guess it really is true that the cream doesn't necessarily rise on the internet.

Horrifying realization that this sounds like a spam comment!! Noooo.
