Long, long ago, when Merton was new and filled with questions, I took a drastic step of which I'm now slightly ashamed: I added him to my "Ignore" list. For the last couple of weeks, though, I've found myself reading his posts more and more often - I'm even often amused by them!
Congratulations, MERTON, and welcome back! You're totally off my ignore list. As for the rest of you: don't get cocky!
