"I don't care about the number, accurate or not, because I don't do it to get credit."

Okay. The implication of that is you think that I have come here pretty much every day for the last 13 years for the "credit" I get.

For the riches and rewards; international recognition; pay packet bonuses; Perlmonks groupies and everything else that comes from being 2nd on SioB. I mean: Wow; I'm just so blessed.

And your earlier phrase: "Being under-appreciated has traditionally been a side-effect of altruism. Some even seek it, as a guard against pride." suggests that it is some how wrong for me to enjoy having my efforts appreciated.

You know, it's pretty damned hard to offend me; but you succeeded.

    My first thought on seeing this thread was yes, it seemed you were complaining on your own behalf. On your penultimate reply, you indicated your concern extended to others (or even was only for them), not yourself. I should have acknowledged that and for that I apologize.

    I spoke (or intended to speak) generally. I assumed that if you saw something that might apply to others but did not apply to you, you would disregard it. I will accept the usual penalty for making assumptions applies in this case only to me. Mea culpa.

    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)
