Well said save the tinpots that dont exist, merely wannabes that are in

Thankfully some have branched out and continue to do excellent things in
various places quietly watching as another NB  cycle completes leaving the
house back in the way it was meant to be sans gnats.

Til then filter & delete stay well worn...
