Scott, I love your solution. Though I understand the original point that was trying to be made, I say there's a reason Bill Gates gave us a delete key. Just the 'degrees' thread alone demonstrates how different we all our, in spite of our commonality. Even from day to day, some topics will catch my eye that might not have the day before, depending on what's going on in my life. I'm usually just a lurker myself, but when I do choose to write, I hope someone out there is listening. And I figure someone is.
