Thank you. I don't spend much time on COLA these days so no doubt I
miss some people who deserve 'name annotation'. I'm very happy to
receive suggestions from Linux advocates on any omissions.
Troll feeding is the bain of COLA. The replies to posts from tab for
example demonstrate this very well. If my stats help in any way
towards reducing this I'm very happy.

Exactly. For me it is a bit of fun. If others take it seriously then
that is their problem. Even flatfish, along with all its nyms, have
always had their rightful place in my COLA stats. :-)
