in reply to What's the secret of this community?

The secret is in the barely perceptible "blipvert" page that is briefly displayed before every new page. This page contains hypnotic images which are intended to alter the viewers frame of mind and encourage a feeling of well-being and the desire to be as helpful as possible. Of course, it doesn't always work, but it's effective often enough to make this site far more useful than most other similar sites.

The technology used to do this is a closely guarded secret and now you know about it we'll have to kill you.

    You have to be careful though, and not surf through too quickly, as a quick enough succession of blipverts impacting on the visual cortex of a highly sedentary subject can cause an overheating reaction in the medulla oblongata, leading to possible explosion of the skull.
