I wanted to see if this idea could catch on.
As a loyal Straight Dope reader, I have learned a lot from the many experts on this wonderful website, as I’m sure you have too. This site is truly amazing. Any question can be answered by knowledgeable people in mere minutes. Good advice is shared, ignorance is fought, and we all are lucky to be in a place where we can learn, debate, commiserate, and laugh together.
It would brighten someone’s day if they knew that their knowledge was really helpful to someone.
I would like to invite fellow Dopers to share the names of posters who you would like to thank for whatever reason. ONLY POLITE AND SINCERE APPRECIATION PLEASE. I don’t want “Thanks for being a dick,” or the like.
To start, I would like to thank, among others, Senegoid, Chronos, Exapno Mapcase, Barkis is Willin’, Nava, Les Espaces Du Sommeil, Telemark, Trinopus, and runningcoach, in particular, for their thoughtful and informative contributions to the threads I have posted about music, language, and sports.
Anyone else want to thank someone? Start the New Year off with gratitude!
