i lost a couple of hundred in the initial hack,and i've lost some postings through other shenanigans but i gotta admit, the total number of postings i've made on this site (as dog or airdog)couldn't be more irrelevant to me(or moderatin' mike.) it's the quality time i spend reading poems about chronic flatulence that makes it all worthwhile. i'm sure if macca himself ever checked in, he'd feel the same way. plus, i suspect that whenever scrodfish slacks off on her robitussinization, i lose some postings, anyway.it's just the way of the world. but thanks for your concern, at any rate, gents.
