HEY! I'll let ya know that my crap smells like roses! -or whatever I ate that night
Thanks for the props dryheat!!!
But yah, it was cool to see the person in question make some recent changes and try. I think the biggest problem with new posters to this site is that they put something up with the best intentions but lose interest quickly due to the 'peanut butter' aggrevation that is HTML or get distracted by other things in life (family, beer, Family Guy etc.).
There are a few things solidly irritating about this site, make no mistake. But I do believe SP and our members get a lot of things right. Ya gotta admit, we have some good, quality pages on this wiki-site.
If anything, perhaps SP is going through yet another identity crisis, growing pains.
I harp and throw shit on poor submissions like anyone else. But it's something I'm trying to change into more of a mentor or peer advice platform.
One thing I CAN do without though, are all these recent profiles of dentists, wanna-be salesmen (or women) or 'hipsters' trying to make a name for themselves by flodding search engines at SP's expense.
