I saw your post and thought, 'Oh no, another one rtaking guesses etc. - just for a vote'.
As you must have guessed, you surprised me. You said what I feel and moaned about what I have moaned. Anyone who writes stories, poetry, stem articles and so on...in other words, anyone who cares about how many bothered to read him, should have moaned as I did about the 'post view ticker thing' - but I do not recall ever see another complain about it.
So, even if it is at the edge of the cliff before we try to learn to fly - glad to have met you :)
