I'll be PM'ing a few of you shortly with more explanation of why I hid your posts.

[Edit: As I pm'd those of you whose posts I hid, I'm *not* making a sitewide policy that threads can't get derailed, just I'd appreciate if we keep this particular thread on-topic for two reasons: 1) I want to make sure I hear from a wide variety of users, not just the vocal ones, and tons of o/t posts starts to make a thread feel like it's insiders only, and 2) I'm trying to come up to speed as fast as possible and make sure I read all these posts and think about them and a long stream of off-topic discussion just adds more cycles that slows me down, which slows down how fast I can make changes to move this site forward. If you want to just chit-chat, there's plenty of other threads for that.]


OK, but but first impressions are important. DDT made some heavy-handed moves when he took over, and essentially lost the race right out of the starting gate. Most of really don't like to be told what to say or how to say it.

Color me crazy, JT, but posting contents of a PM from the new owner doesn't exactly support your argument re: first impressions.

Which might be why so many are lobbying for you to be first on the chopping block.

I mean, seriously? You thought posting that was a *good* idea?

EDIT BY EPOCH: I detached these posts from Jeff's AMA thread. This does not contribute to the conversation or topic that was presented in that thread. Please keep future replies on your banter in here... A note regarding this is also posted in Jeff's welcome thread.
