I was going to -- you, but decided to post instead. So in all this time and through all the help you've offered, you haven't made any even remote acquaintances that may recognize your name on the chatterbox and be willing to frontpage your own nodes? You value the ability to frontpage nodes more than your insights to being a good coder, as well as overall a member of a community? And while I'm sure I'll get a few -- of my own, I'll stand up here to tell you that temper tantrum in your last paragraph is childish both for the reaction as well as for targetting the messenger.
