We don't have a Most Valuable Poaster award here, regardless of how highly Ace regards himself. However, if we had such an award, I believe most people would agree that query would top the list. (Sorry, Ace. You ain't it.)

query entered the fray back around mid-2000 when we were still the Unofficial Quantex and Dell Chat. Since his first poast, he has helped hundreds (thousands?) of people. While most of us rack our number of poasts throughout the forum, query has racked his over 3,000 poasts by overwhelmingly directly helping others. However, query has indirectly help thousands of others, myself included.

query - I've learned a lot from you, as have many others. Thanks for sharing your expert knowledge so freely.

  • Ace; he's just not that into you.

Well, that's just fine, maybe I didn't want it anyway, Huh.  

Let's just remember who the first was to call a Poast a Poast, shall we.  Or at least constructed an epic ode to the event.

I would also offer I have practiced the Medical creed in a PC way, myself here, on numerous occasions.  "Cause no harm."  You can't begin to count how many technical problems and difficulties I've stayed way far away from, so as to not cause further distress nor damage.  I think that would also be appreciated here, especially by those who are having enough trouble already without needing me to stick my nose into their distress without an anti-static wrist wrap.

It might surprise you that I too would turn to query waaaay before I'd come to me, with a PC problem.  Waaaaaaaay.

But; what if an innocent passerby or lurker needed a verbal pick-me-up or bit of joshing or jibe or some reckless insult hurled...?  Huh?  Whom then, may I ask?  A joke?  A pun?  Heck, even a monkey or blond story.  

Pat?  Neon?  Dude?  Pete?  Scuzzy?  Bubba?  Jim?  One of them?  

Well, yeah, sure, I guess.

Ok, then.  Let's remember that I stay outta the tech rooms for a darn good reason, and I do it for all of us.  

Ace; if I did go in there I'd have to use the "LOOKOUT!" mode a lot more often.
Ring bells for service.

Scuzzy, concerning Query, I second your vote.  He's always here, always professional, and always right (although I'm certainly not knowledgeable enough to know if he was ever wrong).

Concerning Ace, well, yes, I'm concerned about him.  I mean, there should be an award, some recognition, something besides his picture in Post (not Poast) Offices across the country.  Yes, there should be something for Ace, pharmaceutical or otherwise.  I just can't come up with what to call it (the award, not Ace).  I'm stuck...
