Sure, we have authorities. And they're cool authorities. (the ones that
are cool, that is!) But do we have authorities that can wield
that gentle, understanding authority that soothes the wild noder? I
think (excuse me, please) the unfettered sensibilities that make certain
of our noders-on-high so intriguing also take away the authority, like the
teacher that wears a backwards baseball cap.

can hold the hand of the noder taking his first steps, and soothe &
advise the poor soul who just got stung with a downvote. Yet, someone
who knows when to unleash EDB, and has the infinite patience to keep
typing /msg username reasonable, understanding, studied message over and

can tell the Pinchemadres from the Dmen. And make good pies (or, of course, macaroons). Yeah.
