I noticed this just today and although there is no contest to enter, my response to the original question is "because of people like Hototo". People with skill, talent and knowledge that are so willing to share it... not for a price but for the benefit of their brothers and sisters. I have visited many a forum in my day and joined just one, this one. I've never visited a forum that has so many cordial people on it, yes some with a bit of sarcasm to them (guilty myself from time to time) but I have yet to see out and out rotten conduct. The members make it happen and the moderators make sure it happens. I bow and thank you all.
ps- This is the first time I have "Jonsed" over a spoon, wow are they special
