Oh shit yeah. Several times the first week and I managed to annoy a few CH's I came to realize were only trying to help a newbie. Ha! Oh yeah, I was a hot mess when I landed here. Hill didn't prepare me, he got a good chuckle out of it though.
Really? What for, c oliver? I've gotten a couple of what I thought were Righteous Defender posts deleted, but I think many of my fellow chowhounds are better-spoken than me, and can't imagine them getting deleted, especially you.
I'll decline to get off-topic here but, rest assured, it was probably deserved. And, hey, thanks for the compliment. I'm more boring than I used to be but get fewer "Notes from a Moderator." Operative word being "fewer" :)
